Didn't the last "Price Adjustment" feature some prices going down?

Do you still get to call it a "Price Adjustment" if ALL the prices are going up?

Are you kidding me? Saint celeste is a cool model, butr still not worth $24.

$2-$4 yank on everything listed. Ouch.

Hope more old fools come to their senses and start giving you their money instead of those Union Jack Blood suckers...

A fool and his money are soon parted?

 

 


He's got a mind like a steel trap. By which I mean it can only hold one idea at a time;
it latches on to the first idea to come along, good or bad; and it takes strenuous effort with a crowbar to make it let go.

Apparently people are still buying GW models. This unacceptable to GW. The models use oil which is polluting and Warhammer 40,000 encourages lewd and licentious behavior. GW is doing a public service by pricing the game high enough that people can't buy it.

In recognition of this Tom Kirby should be awarded the OBE, KBE, Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Nobel Prize in 'Being an all-around nice guy'.

lol @ $24 eldrad....

I wonder if this is UK only?

I do recall a statement made that they would increse prices only once a year. This has since been proven false.

Everytime there is a new codex released, there is stealth increases across the board.

They may as well increase the price right befoe christmas every year, so atleast it feels they are being honest.

Atleast the yearly financial report will reflect the price "adjustments" made that year, instead of the price increases happening right before the report is released.


So who wants to bet on what the prices for the americas are going to look like this year?

Adrift within the vortex of my imagination.

The real GW prices are going up too, you get less than you used to on eBay for more money.

n'oublie jamais - It appears I now have to highlight this again.

It is by tea alone I set my mind in motion. By the juice of the brew my thoughts aquire speed, my mind becomes strained, the strain becomes a warning. It is by tea alone I set my mind in motion.

There, I've made it more "accurate". Excuse? Who needs excuses when you still have a profit margin (however slim).

My temptation is to think "April Fool's Joke" (they're not above them at TMP) but the realistic voice in my head says "they'll be adjusting the prices in the US soon, because you wouldn't want to overvalue the dollar, would you?"

Sheesh, its sad that a single character figure is literally more than 2/3 or a RPG hardcover rulebook...

Hope more old fools come to their senses and start giving you their money instead of those Union Jack Blood suckers...
