Default GW Price Change Spreadsheet - Effective May 28th

https://spreadsheets.google.com/spre...pIjqcDzQ#gid=0

New US and Canadian prices to go in effect May 28th. Some big changes going on here as well such as a box of wyches going up another $5.

Personally, this is the nail in the coffin that is me quitting GW altogether. Between their terrible business practices and constant price hikes I simply refuse to pay another cent for their product. Perhaps I'll see you all in WarmaHordes?

Rest in peace, GW's business outside Europe. A glorious suicide it was in just one day.

I've had recurring nightmares
That I was loved for who I am
And missed the opportunity
To become a better man

just wow, another price hike because they know they are going to lose a ton of money from the people who they give discounts to in the first place, GW really wants to be in debt, though if they were to ninja change the prices of the pre-order for the DE, id be pissed off to no end

the price hikes were expected, but this is like a shot in the nuts.

"hey we are disallowing all of the smaller companies that sell our merchandise to sell outside of their respective countries, ontop of that, we are raising the prices we want everyone to sell our merchandise. We wish to completely destroy any and all real profits we would see outside of the UK with this shot to the nuts."

Yeah now that I'm out of college and money will be going towards things like rent, food, and insurance, I honestly don't think I'll be building much of a second army at all. maybe a couple boxes a year and thats because this is pretty much my only hobby. Individually each one isnt that much more but it sure would add up quick. At least the paint didnt go up. Three boxes with five dollar increases, $15 you wouldnt have spent before, thats a few meals gone for no reason. I'm gonna need that.

I cant believe I am still semi-willing to buy this stuff haha. I think this is pretty damn close to me saying no out-right as well though. Land raider is nearing $70, it will be next year if the trend continues. Its really hard to justify spending that much money that is at the end of the day, just a plastic model.

And they're trying trying to appeal to younger kids more too, thats a theory at least. can you imagine parents faces when their kid asks for a $70 plastic tank? haha 'what the fuck?! no way, he'll have to settle for micro-machines again."

You can never be prepared for the unexpected

yea this is getting retardedly stupid, we all love this game, but GW wont put its prices down, only up because of their greed and natural inflation.

of coarse they do not go up in small numbers, they prefer taking big chunks out of us.

I am sure if EVERYONE outside the UK stoped buying GW products all together, they would either lower their prices, seclude to just the UK, or ultimately continue as is, rip apart whatevers left of their money and go bankrupt and everything closes anyway.

Gas is rather quickly approaching $5 a gallon (USD) and people are wondering why prices are going up?

Prices don't exisit in a vacuum guys. GW is raising prices because they need to maintain a certain profit margin to remain in business.

As to people leaving 40k and WHFB to play WarmaHordes, there isn't a massive difference in box prices. WarmaHordes has high priced models, like the new battle engines costing $85 and most of their squad boxes are around the normal price for a 5 man box from GW.

All I can say is, with prices going up it just gives me more incentive to make more money.

prices going up is one thing, but they are not going up a small amount, and its only in their international sections that its gone up, IE they are trying to screw their international players.

Wow reading through that list is a load of crap! most SM kits are going up 8-12 dollars apiece....that is crazy! Codexs are going up about 8 dollars a piece with is larger than any bookstore increase in any hard back novels. I feel that this is a very bad buisness decision...IMO. I guess I am going to start buying really badly painted models on ebay and striping them...lol

Nobody cares.

I think that's what it comes down to. GW can wax lyrical about the reasons that they need to annually increase their prices but the fact is that nobody cares. Less and less people are interested in paying the amount of money that GW charges for plastic and metal (err, resin) space men.
