Yeah, it's the same as WoW. After you buy the game you also have to pay monthly to play it.

One month subscription plan: $14.99 per month.*
Three month subscription plan: $13.99 ($41.97 total, charged in advance).*
Six month subscription plan: $12.99 per month ($77.940 total, charged in advance).*

That's all in USD, with the converter they link to it works out to
One month sub - 9.59
Three month sub - 26.84
Six month - 48.94

There are also 60 day pre-paid game cards out for it as well, but I'm not sure as to the price of those.

Aye it doesn't quite work to the currency calculator though, GoA was originally going to do that. Then they realized charging more than WoW in Europe might be a bad idea and switched it to keep in line with WoW's European prices.

Which starts at 8.99 a month, going down a percentage if you buy 3 or 6months, can't remember the exact prices for the longer periods and sadly can't look at my account page here at work as its blocked. If no one has added them by tonight I'll double check for you.

Did a little more digging for you Yarrick and here is what's listed for prices for the UK:

1 month for 12.99 (10.31)
3 months for 35.97 (28.55)
6 months for 65.94 (52.34)

Alternatively, pre-paid Game Card packs for a 60-day subscription will be available through participating retailers for 29.99 (23.81).

That's pulled from the Euro website for Warhammer

Aye sadly thats wrong, and still not updated. I can't believe how lax GoA is, don't bother with the main site for your news, need to go to one of the independant forums where their customer service guys post.
Warhammeralliance.com/forums is one, Only-WAR.com the other of note. Magnus K of GoA posted on both saying those prices where wrong and listed the actual European prices, showing they where in line with WoW. Its shocking they haven't bothered to change them on the main site a month later.

I will say though just in case I'm wrong, that If they have reverted back to those prices I'd be stunned as theres no way WAR can afford to be the most pricey MMO in Europe atm.

I had a look a couple of hrs ago and the UK prices were as follows:

1 month= 8.99

3 months= 25.17

6 months= it was something like 47 but don't hold me to that
