Rarely have I been more happy to be wrong.

Looks like the Necrons are my 2021 project then...

The darks greatest gift is the light itself: as days are defined by the nights that divide them, as stars are defined by the infinite dark through which they wheel, the dark embraces the light, and brings forth from the center of itself. With each victory of the light, it is the dark that wins.

The brightest light casts the darkest shadow.

Can you help us out and convert that to usd based on gws absurd math? Im guessing 200 instead of the 160/170 the normal exchange rate shows

I'd assume in the region of whatever Indomitus cost in the US.

GW must realize they're putting out these big ticket items on Black Friday weekend, right? Add the scramble for gaming consoles into the mix, and it's a perfect storm. huh.png

I can only speak for myself, and say that GW are currently back of the queue for my disposable income.

Great to see the kits I've been waiting for, but now they'll have to wait for me. down.gif

GW has always seen Black Friday as a non event, so I am not surprised

That’s higher than I was expecting for the gladiator! These prices are getting silly now!

I was expecting around £50-55 for the Gladiator so to be between the middle is alright. I'd rather they rounded down though as £52.50 just seems like an odd pricing number.

For the GW FX conversion it is always best to find one of the most recent releases with a similar price.

 

If you take Warcry: Catacombs which is quite recent, the price is £125 and that translates into US$210, €160, CA$250, AU$350

That Nid box is mighty interesting, at £120 you essentially get the 16 stealers and 10 gargoyles for free (rrp £67.50). Not bad, but stealers are something every Tyranid and BA player have a ton of already. A single additional desirable/useful item would make this a must-buy. At the moment it's a maybe.

If that price is accurate for Australia (around $350AUD) then that will be a big fat no for me on the Chaos box. Was hoping for around the $300 mark, maybe $310-$320 at the most.

I'm pleasantly surprised! 
Now I have to either resiste the urge of splashing some more money on them or give in. 

Pending confirmation from my FLGS owner... Fraters, I may have failed.

Whomever sets the prices have never heard about psychological pricing. 49.99£. The extra 2.50£ won’t ruin their finances.

Hellblasters, Incursors/Infiltrators, Intercessors, Reivers are all £35. Assault Intercessors (also ten-marine, likely four sprue) are £36.50.

 

Gladiator weirdly slightly over £50 (though they arguably priced themselves into a corner with the Impulsor).

 

GW pricing logic is funky, though I suppose they've never really gone in for psychological pricing in the past, so I shouldn't be that surprised that they're not doing it now.

I didn't notice that as I buy in euros. All those units and the Assault Intercessors as well are €45.

For the last few months they have been using a different exchange rate, slightly more in line with the real world ones.

Well the basic infantry box for marines just got upped again so we are due another round.

How long before the other boxes are brought in line (36.5) and increased as well?

Think it's just raising the UK price to match the foreign price a little more. I guess it's one way of solving that. Recently the prices have been a little bit more in line with actual conversion rates.

In the US, we basically pay 45 pounds after sales tax, so I don't really care if GBP price goes up if ours is the same.

I suppose the prices here are reasonable, but they don't really seem amazing. The marine one is still hampered by having useless Reivers, a pretty useless Captain and a transport that nothing in the box wants to use. And to be honest none of the other boxes seem all that awesome.

 

I looked at the Necrons quite seriously, to see if they'd work for me as an expansion to Indomitus, but I don't really think they would.  It's not a bad value set but I have the stuff from Forgebane so I've already got that Cryptek, and you want him with the controller thingy anyway, not the cloak.

 

I think the BA combat patrol is a good option as an expansion for Indomitus, whether you play BA or not. It has a Librarian, Incursors/infiltrators, intercessors, aggressors and an impulsor for your bladeguard. All those things are useful and none duplicate the contents of Indomitus. Actually the Indomitus set works pretty well for BA, so that would be a good combo.

 

Edit: But yes, assault intercessors ftw.
