Ouch these prices are crazy, even by recent GW standards. £30 for 10 28mm scale plastic models? a single monstrous infantry model for £36? a plastic hero kit for £15? Absolutely mind boggling. I will pick up the army book and cards simply so I've got the latest rules for my army, but if I do add anything to it I'll use ebay or models from a 3rd party manufacturer as I simply cannot afford to buy new GW stuff anymore.

Think of it as a dare. . .for something you wanted to do years ago.

If pondering what you spent discretionary funds years ago is an issue, you are not the target market.

Wow... yup all excited till you see the price tag. $50 for a 10 man core unit. Last army to get a new plastic core unit was OnG with the plastic Savage Orcs. $29.
$85 for a two sprue giant monster? Yea, the new CSM flyer was also a two sprue for $74 and that didn't feel like it was worth it. This I doubt will either when I pick up the box and feel the weight. Last big monster I liked and felt it was worth it was the Ogre Stonehorn kit and that was $57.75.
And $25 for a freaking single character plastic figure? I thought the CSM champion that just came out for $20 was too much. We went from $15 to $25 for plastic characters.

Expect in May the next price hike round to look like this.
All Infantry Kits: $50
All Monstrous Cav Kits: $60
All Plastic Characters: $25
All non-Rare Chariots: $40
All rare Monsters and Chariots: $85
All Hard Back Army Books: $50

Well had already to dump my GW stock after the next dividend payment. This synches it.

Yep, after consideration I am going to 3rd party.

A lot of them are as good, and in the terms of large monster a number are better.

Its not like finding the latest rules on the net is a chore either. Nor is it uncommon sight to see people in Australia using photocopied rules.

Since there are 0 official tournies in Australia - what is GW going to do? Pout at us for not using official models?

You guys are echoing what is already being said in my thread about GW's prices over in Discussions.

http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/497907.page

Yes, threads like this have popped up over the years but they tended to die out fairly quickly. This time things... feel... different. This time it doesn't seem like people just bitchin for the sake of doing so. This time the GW High Price thread seems to have legs. I don't see this being healthy for GW in the long run.

Even so, I do have to admit that I wasn't really expecting them to ratchet up to $85.00 for an (at best) Trygon/Tervigon sized monster so quickly.

Sorry, was looking at the FC troll when I posted this.

Still, a warped spear in a showcase model is not something they should be proud of.

In fact it looks like it's just sculpted that way, rather than normal warpage you'd see in metal or resin, weird.

Wow even those prices made me stop for a second!

Now I am a die hard GW fan have been playing with their minitures for 20 years and loved about 99% of all their stuff.

But these recent prices are making me look at 3rd parties more and more. My wife has just got into Fantasy and the only viable way for her to increase her collection is waiting for Chirstmas and birthdays (good thing she dosnt have that much time to paint lol).

Shall be getting the Book and possibly cards but that's it shall be looking at other companies for angry armored men of the north lol.

It's the plastic glue fumes.

Mandorallen turned back toward the insolently sneering baron. 'My Lord,' The great knight said distantly, 'I find thy face apelike and thy form misshapen. Thy beard, moreover, is an offence against decency, resembling more closely the scabrous fur which doth decorate the hinder portion of a mongrel dog than a proper adornment for a human face. Is it possibly that thy mother, seized by some wild lechery, did dally at some time past with a randy goat?' - Mimbrate Knight Protector Mandorallen.

Tied and gagged in the back of your car

The problem is, however, that buying from discounters is barely even a band-aid for the issue. What is discount pricing now is higher than retail a few years ago. You can rationalize a discount as much as you want, but when the base price keeps going up, that discount still keeps getting more and more expensive.

True,but what is there we can really do?People will say vote with your wallet but i really like a lot of GW stuff.It's really quite annoying when you really can't justify the cost of a lot of these models.I don't show my wife how much a lot of this is as i don't fancy a lecture on spending in the current recession.So like i said "hello wayland/ebay"

Did GW figure out that people are buying everything through the discounters so now they have increased the price to where they get the same amount through them. I know it's worded poorly, but I'm on my not so smart phone.

Example. GW wants to make $10.00 profit off of one box. They have to mark it up $20.00 so that through the discount chain they still get the $10.00 from the discounters, and $30.00 through anyone crazy enough to buy at their store or their site.
