It seems on the first of June, GW will be rising prices again.

Today Games Workshop has informed us of their forthcoming price rises. Effective on the 1st June, 242 items will increase in RRP and therefore we will have to increase our prices, so if you want to take advantage of the current lower prices please order as soon as possible!

The link shows all the kits and models which are going up

The increase is between 5%-26% with a average of around 13% rise.

Ouch, the Valkyries going up. Better pick one up. It's not that bad I suppose, could be worse. As for the codex's, now they're in line with C:SM.

EDIT:Thanks for the info

Does this forum has any rules on cursing and foul language? Cause I'm afraid I might break all of them.

Only until their next release, when they will become plastic. Hopefully.

We get to laugh in the face of Dark Angels players who are forced to shell out 17.50 on the single smallest codex. How many pages is it? Like 50?

Rhinos are now £1 for each 1.75 points, which amuses me no end. Bets on next edition it being £1 per 1 point?

Christ almighty. I haven't bought a box of assault terminators because I thought the price of $50 USD for 5 plastic models was insane. Now the price will increase? Oh well, will never get my hands on a set of them then.

It's just like Orc bikers, $42 USD for three small plastic models?!?! My son wants/needs 6 more, but at almost $90 USD for them, I can't afford it. Hell, for the price of two boxes of bikers I can get a battle force box with a trukk, 20 boys and 3 bikers! There pricing is so screwed up and retarded it makes me laugh in disgust.

Fuck GW, they blow ass.

Thats ridiculous, guess ill just have to give up on my ba army and keep trading models for te ones i want. 17.50 for a codex is absolutely stupid. The books are fricking tiny, 15 quid max.

I am seriously not amused

i can possibly see why the basilisk is £30 and not £25 if these prices rises are anything to go by, but bloody hell arent GW kinda pushing it with these prices, i thought £35 for a landraider or defiler was expensive but £37.50 thats pushing it, especially £15 for an attack squad, £15 for 5 basic guys jeez

What about Obliterators? 13.5£ each, and most tournament armies include 6-9.
Well I don't mind, I'll build mine using plastic Chaos Terminators....WTF the Terminators rise too ?!?!?!?!

Hi

Though I am no fan of price increases, I am in the plastics business and sell a variety of Materials.

I know that we are having issues with availability on Styrene and ABS. On top of this we have seen a number of price increase on raw material, from 5% to 12% a pop.

I know that the material is a small part of the productiomn, but it does add up.

Corry



might this be the reason

No GW just likes there yearly price increase so they can take more money for there poor service and lack of support.

And woohoo! now ever one pays the same price as a SM codex, and they get 1/3 the content!

Gah, I didn't think I'd ever say it, but I feel like I'm losing a grip on this hobby. It's simply getting to the point where I can't afford to buy from the local store anymore. =/

i remeber when tactical squads of sm where 15 quid! thats when they brought the new plastic squad out, and now they are like 20 odd quid!

if everyone united and went 'nah, im not paying toilet prices for plastic men' GW would look down on itself ashamed. and would be forced to sort thier pricing out. unfortunatley that will never happen.....

i wish i was che guevara (spelt wrong) of the wammah world. i'd kick off and lead a revolution. ah well piracy, and paying chavs to nick stuff is the only way now

Omg, how on earth can they expect new players to get into the game at these prices, I know its a business and I know they have to make money but when two of my mates both of which I would like to play with said that the reason they won't start playing is the initial cost (and they are both employed and dont have a mortgage)the prices are simply too high already.

When a computer game costs the same as 10 plastic soldiers the kids and parents will take the option with no additional costs, GW fail
