Yeah, June 1st is the next rise of price rises! Because they haven't alienated enough people from buying from them direct. http://www.darksphere.co.uk/index.php
I'll pick out some highlights...
Army Books are now £17.50, up from £15. I mean, £15 was pushing it for me was it was, but now? That's comically overpriced.
Space Marine Tactical Squads are £22.50. I mean, fucking hell, a 12.5% increase in a year. Good thing I don't play Beakies, because that's fucking obscene.
Ork Battlewagons are £37.50, which is pretty nuts. But not as batshit insane as...
Ork Trukks, which can be wrecked by light arms and cost just 35 points, are going to £20. That'd probably go down worse if it wasn't for the fact Ork players are used to just building something better out of cheap toys and sheet styrene.
And for me, the funniest?
Orks in Mega Armour are now £12 each
. I can remember when Ghaz cost that, and he's a damned sight closer to what a Mega-Armoured ork should be.
The thing is, as an ork player, there's little (Practically nothing
) I can't build myself from sheet styrene, wire, plastic rod, green stuff, and it comes to it, an ork boyz boxed set (A few of which I still have). There's very little point in buying from GW direct, because I can make anything they sell for a lot less, and if they do sell something I want, I'll just buy from Wayland Games and save 20% on the RRP.
