So, I’ve gotten word that as of June 1 expect a price increase on most popular GW products. Pricing changes are anywhere from 5-20% increases.
Example I was given directly:
Space Marine Battleforce (Prices in US Dollars):
Used to be: $90.00
First increase: $115.00
Second Increase: $130.00

June 2012 increase: $150.00

Wonderful, huh. It keeps going up and up and up… Games Workshop as a company are trying to get more and more of a customer base, with the rules sets being rewritten so they are easier to understand for younger players, and the models are being redone to remove metals entirely. This I understand can lead to a price increase, but three in the past two years? Come on.
I have actually asked GW directly on their FB page if there is an actual reason behind the price increase this time around, but have yet to receive an answer. To be honest, I don’t expect to get one, but I am curious if they will take the time to respond, or if they will “remove” the post. I carefully worded it so it didn’t fall into their “not family friendly” request for any comments. As of 9:53 this evening (central time) it’s still there, and no response.

Surfing around, this is the list I’ve been able to find, so far of the increases:

(Sorted by type, and I think I got all the duplicates out. Now mind you, this isn’t anything “official” I located. I found this list on several different blogs/websites, I just took the time to sort it by category.
