Now that's too damn high. Well, I'll have to keep hunting some deals at Ebay, and stop buying almost at all.

It's time to purge them. Give them no quarter, no mercy. Slain them, impale them, destroy them. Make them wish they were death. Let them burn, let them suffer and let them listen to our battlecry. ¡All Praises! ¡Chaos Victor!".-Chaos Lord Pertinax at the siege of Fevelfosk.

corporate greed and financial suicide... soon it'll just be doctors and lawyers who can afford this shit and they're too busy banging hookers in roach infested motels behind their 19 year old wives to give a shit about GW and thier product... sooooo...christ the "proposed" cost of the Catachan BF at 120 was what the Tomb Kings starter set went for when I was in Canada when they first came out... soooo. Assholes

Does anyone have price data for a box of tactical marines from, say, 1990 to 2011? It would be interesting to plot a graph and comparing GM price increases against inflation across countries.

I would like to see a graph comparing price increase against model quality, now that would be interesting!

Can't do for tacticals

But Ragnar Blackmane - I bought him for £5 from GW in 1995 - the same model is now £12
characters used to all be £5 each.

This is why I haven't bought even a single pot of paint since the price increase last year (not even from ebay, literally nothing). One has to follow through on threats for them to mean anything, guys. If you disagree with their business practices, hit them where it hurts. Posting in a QQ thread on the internet accomplishes less than nothing. Pirate their books, scratch-build tanks using templates found online and so on. Don't give them a single cent.

If enough people do this maybe eventually they'll wise up and realize that they need to rethink their business plan.

I think the huge problem is that they don't give a fuck about us experienced hobbyists, because we tend to spend little and often, while little timmy might come in twice a year and spend hundreds in massive splurges. it saddens me, even 4 years ago it was never like this.

Yup well, they can continue to not care about me while I continue not buying their stuff.
