On a related note (about sending a ton of cash to GW), I just ordered almost 160$ worth of paints to finally get that avenue done for me (going from all but none, save my foundation paints, to I believe being fully stocked up enough to start). Tomorrow, I hit up my Amazon store folks and order even more models, before those prices go up.

As someone who appreciates the fluff, the hobby aspect, and the gaming aspect of 40k, this price increase probably wouldn't drive me off the hobby.

As a Sisters player who isn't currently affected by this, but by other factors (direct-order only metal models), I'll probably have to weather the new prices when the Sisters will finally be updated so that I can finally have all the models I need.

I just won't be as willing to drop the cash for that DE/SM army I've been considering.

So telling someone that they are being irrational when they themselves admit they are being irrational is rude?

Telling someone to stop moaning and leave with a bit of dignity (if that is what they are doing) is being rude?


Seriously people need to step back and look at themselves before levelling that sort of response at me because if you read back you will notice I have not name called, I have not insulted anyone beyond what I wrote above (which isnt insulting!) and I think you will find it is me who has had people be rude and insulting to me.

To prevent any 'misunderstandings' if I post IN ORANGE then I am joking.
Thank you

I really wish more people would actually LOOK at the spread sheet before posting. Not all that many prices are going up and most of the prices raises are targeted at the codexes and battalion box sets. They are seriously just brining all the box sets in line with others of simular sizes.

@Djinn24-I have looked at it and it appears that Marine kits are getting a 8-12 increase(accept for the SM commander kit). I won't stop buying but I will buy less and more on secondary markets.


@Maidel- I think trying to be the voice of reason and calm is great. But you have to understand some people are just plain upset. This is an emotional response and whether or not it is rational is besides the point because it is thier personal opinion. They might not be able to articulate those feelings in a meaningful way to you. So basically neither you nor they will be able to convince the other to their side. I say just let everyone..including me(a little) continue to vent. Venting is healthy and will relieve stress an angst over this move.

Now lets start a movement to get them to re-release Space Hulk!!!

I've never been big on 'public venting', I think protest marching and striking should be illegal because it never solves anything and just makes people's lives miserable... Maybe that's just me

But damn right with space hulk, although I'm pretty certain they said they broke up the mold after they finished the run.

I'm fair certain the former British colony of India would like to (peacefully) disagree.

Four Colditz salads and a Hermann Goering.

No, no, that is a fair point, and immediately after typing it I heard a radio news about Egypt and syria. I will amend my statement to exclude genuine protests about human rights, suffering and hardship.

Specifically I was thinking about firefighters, train drivers, students, lecturers and the BA cabin crew all of whom caused untold hardship, pain and in a few instances led to people's deaths all over tiny amounts of money.
