Yes please.

At least plastic isn't being hit too hard. 6% is only a few extra dollars for the normal boxed sets.

After coming back into the hobby I was pleasantly surprised many of the prices hadn't particularly risen since I last left the hobby in 2001, and in fact some were cheaper. What I didn't first realise stuff like Dreadnoughts (20 in 2001) were now 2 cheaper but plastic, paints were a standard 2 when I've remembered them being 2.50 for metallics etc but now seem much smaller.

Prices aren't too bad at the moment, particularly when you find an online retailer who knocks 25%. But 50% on the current metal range? I'm sure the apothecary I paid 3 for in 1996 is the same model now and is 7. Thank god I don't buy much in the way of metal models now. Hopefully the majority of the rises don't materialise. Besides, I live in Nottm, shop at Warhammer World - I'm making it really cheap for them lol, where's the shipping costs!?!

This isn't surprising given the current economic situation in the uk with EVERYTHING going up. GW needs to be careful or it will price itself out of existence..

I couldn't agree more , i've just saved about 40 altogether instead of using GW.

The increase in cost of white metal is directly related to the banning of lead from electronics in recent years, now all your electrical goods are soldered using Tin alloys, which is exactly what white metal is, so demand for tin has increased so the price goes up.

This is also the reason GW have been working hard to replace metal kits for warhammer with plastic's.
