WarCom Article.


Releases are opening up soon! And of course, some prince adjustment as well.

May be best to "lock" the thread, as salt will likely be considerable on the price front.

I mean at least they're giving a warning?

Most companies tend to just change the price rather than announce it coming and actually tell you what's going up.

Hopefully FW will be back soon™ too.

What an odd collection of items that go up. Some are ancient others brand new.

Yay to new releases. Not sure how I feel about already expensive character models going up in price even further. Some of the squad boxes I was genuinely surprised were still as low as they are. The DE ones especially.

To save everyone some time:

 

Nearly all vanilla marines will be increasing

 

Only one Primaris model going to increase - Shadowspear Captain in Phobos armour. The Primaris upgrade frames will also go up.

How they can say the majority of stuff will stay the same when it’s the core stuff from pretty much every faction that’s going up in price is beyond me.

Also a lot of this stuff is less than a year old and even more of it has had a price increase during 8th edition already so it’s pretty hard to swallow that it hasn’t risen in years.

I think I have 6 Leman Russ Tanks but I don't know. I should order just one more. And some more Scions, just to be sure.


Pieces of paper for impassable terrain? My main problem with all of this is it really takes away from the game. A giant sheet of white paper on the table sort of breaks the theme of tiny fake armies running around tiny fake locales.

I do business with the local GW but I also buy some stuff online occasionally.  This week I have found a new place around the corner from me (independent) that I never knew existed.  Guess my next £250 order will be going there tomorrow for the 20% discount and free postage :-)  GW will still earn a cut and I will be supporting a local independent store also.

If they really wanted to be honest about this they should give us a % of price increase...

and the way the article is written, it sounds like the chosen products are mostly older stuff but browsing the list it's more like 400 of the top 500 best sellers.

Now watch the GW brigade come to the defense of this pretty shameless move (imo)

Yep. In fact it’s so hard to imagine what’s not in the list to get to 3000 they must be counting every single pot of paint as a separate item.

As for the price increase itself. You can spot a lot of the ones that went up last time as they now end in £2.50 or £7.50. They tended to go up by £2.50 last time on a lot of the multi-model boxes so I’d guess it’ll be the same this time, e.g. if it’s now £22.50 it’ll go up to £25.

I noticed that most of the plastic Necron range was on there. A lot of them were kits that got raised last year.

I wonder if the link is incorrect. Quite a few newer releases on it. Like the aeronautica stuff.

Some of it humorous. Was anyone buying assault marines? That berzerker kit is so dated a price increase has me waiting for the a hopeful future new release.

Having new releases in 2.5 weeks is great news. Finally get back on schedule.

All the AI planes are in there as well as the AT terrain kits.
Also figure cases are going up.

May need to pop into the element games website and grab some SM command squad boxes, they are full of handy conversion bits.

The list would be easier to look through if GW didn't do the annoying thing of listing all the different builds from a box as separate items on the website.

Clever time to announce it... Announce this today, and then do something big on Saturday to hopefully distract the community.

The Storm Watch - WIP Custom Space Marine Chapter

1st Atrian Rifles - WIP Astra Militarum Regiment

Ultramarines - Warhammer Conquest Subscription

I mean announcing that prices are rising soon on basically everything in the range (And transparently failing to downplay it, i bet the front line Customer service folks are loving their jobs right now :( ) could just be a cheap way to get a swift cash injection as the factories are up and running, it may well be a tiny rise.

I cant lie though, its frustrating that a few of the things i want but find a bit objectionably priced are going up still further like Sisters of Silence and the Battleshrine :/

If the link is correct then the Battle Sanctum is going up. Didn’t that come out in March just before lockdown?

Oh look, all of the primer is getting a price increase. Yippee. (looks like most of the hobby ancilliaries are going up as well. Brushes, water pot, mini holders, the paint pot tripod [which I would honestly be ok with it going up, you save so much shade its not even funny], but not paints).

 

Immortals getting a price jump does sting, because IIRC they got a price increase just a little while ago. Makes me happy I've got a fair few converted ones sitting and waiting for paint/greenstuff.

 

On a more general note, I don't think GW's tagging system is working perfectly, because there are plenty of Wh40k models that are going up that aren't being caught by the 40k tag...

Edit: scions going up also hurts a little, as I was looking to get some for my guard force. Guess the SC got more valuable now.

I'm not saying I called this back when the factory shut down but...

 

Also the Leman Russ is going up? Did people actually buy anything but the Start Collecting(!)'s for them anymore?

 

Cadian Shock Troops going up is hysterical when they only just went up a few months ago. Remember when they were 20 for £15?

 

I guess Neophyte Hybrids going up confirms that Acolytes will be nerfed into the dirt next CA.

As 'codex compliant' vanilla or OG marine vanilla?? Because if its the old marines it seems funny how they jack the prices there knowing people are worried Primaris will be phasing them out, people are even more reluctant to buy minis they may not be able to use in a few years so GW just scraps them because we aint buying them.

The Sanctum is made in China, I wouldn't be surprised if the prices from the factory over there have gone up which is causing that one as a lot of scenery is on the list. There is alot of stuff there that was on the last increase list, that poor Chaos Rhino wont be left alone.
