Now this may be seen as your standard: "OMGWTFROFLMAOAFKBRB11!GAMESWORKSHOPPRICESARETOOHIGH!!!!1ONE" thread.
However, having just popped onto the GW website to see if anything new was coming out, it's new layout caused me to pay a little more attention to what was going on and I puttered around the Warriors of chaos section looking at stuff (I bought most of my stuff in the 1990's and a teenage spending habit left me near as dammit set for life as far as GW product was concerned.
My overriding impression was: HOW MUCH?
A box of sixteen plastic marauders £35.
Five Chaos knights £50
These were not isolated incidences. I perused another army at random to see if it was all some horrible work experience kiddie typo. High elves.
£17 for a single metal character model 3 inches tall. Dear God in heaven.
When did this happen?
I remember a few months ago the 2 spawn box was £15. In that short space of time it's gone up by a tenner to £25.
I don't know about anyone else but it just shunted my GW hobby into the realms of something I might ocasionally spend on if I had money given at a birthday or christmas, but would never ever embark upon collecting a new army. I couldn't bankroll it.
To my mind £100 should get you 5 regiments. It used to. Now it gets you 2 and some change for a character.
All I can think is that Ebay just became the only place to buy GW products.
/me = sad.
If you're looking at the new style GW online store, the £ prices are incorrect. The values you see are US$ prices with a £ symbol in front.
Using the proper UK online store (Games Workshop Online Store — Warhammer ), the prices are what they should be.
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
Now that, sir, makes a lot more sense.
I guess it was the work experience kiddie's typo then.
