Why are the BB teams listed at 35 bucks if they are already 35 usd? If BB teams are going up in price I need to know asap cause I was going to get a couple anyways.

Probably mean the price is unchanged. That is not the full list, they probably sent a full list of all their store product and people try to snap part of the price that was changed.

I need to know because if it happens, I will insta buy mortarion and put it in a corner because one day or another I will want to paint this amazing mini, but not for 150 euros.

I must confess, the price increase bothers me as a consumer.

As a business man I can understand WHY in these times the increase was thought warranted, but it doesn't mean I have to like it.

I'll stick to my usual, if I like it enough I'll buy it. If I like it but deem it to expensive, I won't and will get creative modelling.

iirc demonettes and pink horrors are newish, but the space wolf pack is already cheaper then a tactical marine squad. and arguably better if you don't mind the wolf iconography.

The problem for us as consumers is that demand has been consistently outstripping supply recently. From the business point of view, the logical thing to do is to put prices up until those things balance out. That sucks for those of us who are already unwilling to pay the current prices for some things.

It is happening. Got the full list. This is the last week we can order at the old prices.

Some of it makes sense from a retail perspective. Some will annoy gamers. Nothing amazingly huge in terms of jump (though if greater daemons are your thing, buy them this week...).

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Agies Grimm:The "Learn to play, bro" mentality is mostly just a way for someone to try to shame you by implying that their metaphorical nerd-wiener is bigger than yours. Which, ironically, I think nerds do even more vehemently than jocks.

Everything is made up and the points don't matter. 40K or Who's Line is it Anyway?

Do things like The Lord of Change suddenly come with more plastic? What justifies raising the retail price $25? Stuff like this is why it's impossible to convince people to start in this game.

And so it continues until we get to the point that people stop spending this much on these kits. I've already given up on GW at retail, I have to wonder how many more price hikes it'll take the rest of you.

Considering that their sales are currently exceeding their production capacity and they are "just" keeping up at present I'd figure GW has some wriggle room yet. The real issue is conversion abroad. Places like Australia and NewZealand have very high markups on the prices. This is on top of GW having restricted 3rd party sales blocks, which you would think would let them price more fairly to local exchange rates without the risk that everyone buys from a cheaper region and abuses exchange rates.

The problem is that "people" don't stop. Some do. Others don't. When enough people didn't bother with GW anymore, they released bundles with savings to become more attractive again. Now that so many people are buying that they can't satisfy demand, they're raising prices to profit from it. So it'll keep going. It's a slow process and allows GW ample time to counteract should things not go so well anymore.

I reckon the realistic thing to say is "and so it continues" without any qualifier.

Yeah then release more and more attractives bundles, some limited in time, which is very pernicious because you have enough unit to start an army, but if you want to expand on the bundle you pay the hard price.

I was thinking about another Helbrute last month. I saw the price and it's Mailorder only, so i did passed. This will affect more products in the future, as i see now.

And this decision will cost GW many customers. Wrong decision in any way.

How bad is it?

I have xmas money left that is dedicated hobby money. I was going to spend those 100€ on a APOC bundle or a Baneblade...but if GW forces me to buy a GUO before I really needed one and spend less overall, they can be my guest.

I would not overly worry about it (and the Apoc sets seem very good value - we are using a handful of them to pump up our store armies). As I say, some of these rises do make a degree of sense in the wider scheme of things. The greater daemons caught my eye is all (and it was only the Bloodthirster and Lord of Change - serves them right for not following the one true power).

The US list shows the Bloodthirster and LoC brought in line with the GUO and KoS. So 90€->110€ can be expected.

Daemonettes and Bloodletters were released at the same time; along with the 4th Ed Chaos Codex. I'd assume that Daemonettes are on the list somewhere as well, just not in the clipped images. Pink Horror are already $35, as are Blue Horrors which are listed here for $35 so who knows. It should be shocking that a basic 10X troop box that cost $20 10 years ago now costs $35. I guess I've already reached the acceptance phase.

I still can't believe they're selling Khorne Berserkers for $40. They must be pricing them for their rules alone.
