Default Right, I think I've got it sorted!

Right, the mods are free to move this, I just posted here as its more visetid!

heer it is:
Dear Games Workshop,
On behalf of the many people who have signed this letter I would like to know the reasoning behind these price rises. As you may know, many gamers feel the prices are already rather high and that these new price rises are just taking it too far. As gamers we feel this price increase will lead to more power gaming armies consisting of few troops and lots of the more specialized units. Also it seems highly ironic that you are simplifying the rules for younger players but then pricing them out of the equation! I as a newer player (aged 12) find that it is hard work to earn the money for the models. I feel that GW is opening more doors to the older players and closing those to the young. Also it is a let-down that the price goes up for a boxed set that is not even new! We are all wondering why this is. Many of my friends at my local club (at Kirkwall Grammar School, Orkney) earn even less than I do and find it very hard to collect a viable army. All that we ask is that we can get a viable explanation to this matter.

(Please note these names are from worldwide GW customers, found from the following forums, www.tauonline.org and www.40konline.com)

Thank You,

All of your names and emails that you have given me will be written below.

Thankyou for your support and good will in this matter.

Please note this letter is going to be sent within 1-2 hours of this post being posted!

10 says you either get no reply at all, or the standard spiel about "Increasing costs of production and raw materials, compensation for lower LotR sales than anticipated, higher quality models, inflation, cost to cover new factories or stores, etc etc".

Will the prices go down? Nope, not until people stop buying the models. GW will keep raising prices as much as they can - as long as people will pay these prices, there won't be a price slash. The only way a price slash would happen is if one of the other games companies became a strong competitor, then we might get a price war. GW are effectively top dog by a long way though - other companies, who actually have stuff of equal quality, are not on the same scale and don't effectively compete. GW dominates, so they can price stuff up.

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.

I guess that makes since because we are trying to be serious and have them consider what we are saying.
