Just wondering, as I know a few people who quit when price went from 15.00 to 18.00.

Personally no. When most infantry boxes went from 30-35 bucks I was pissed but if they increased to 40 it would just be too outrageous to justify and I'd have to stick to ebay and the like.

You have to expect a price increase eventaully, statistically the price of everything goes up 3% per year (In the US over the time between right after the 1929 stock market crash and 2005).

A small price hike like that wouldn't affect me overly much. There are a number of retailers who offer GW products for 10-25% under list. The bigger boxes will still be good deals.

I'd be somewhat annoyed even though it wouldn't affect me as much seeing as I do a lot of my buying through online retailers these days. However, for those who haven't discovered a source of cheap models yet, I'd probably say a few words of protest.

It would suck, to be sure, but to be honest in the future I'm planning on teaming up with people to get Apocalypse deals on pretty much anything I want to buy, so that should help save the s.

It depends.

As of right now I have enough Blood Angels to field around 3K. I also only need 3 Tau pathfinders w/railguns and I will have around 2K. I also only need 10 Hariliquens for my list, and I will have around 4K of Eldar. SO I dont have to buy anything. Because of that price does not effect me as much as someone building their army.

Well, if they increased the price AND the number of troops in the box, I'd keep buying.

I'd be very annoyed but I'd keep buying stuff...they've got me hooked now. The worst part is that I can see it happening, GW things are constantly increasing in price.

Online retailers will be safe, but independent retails will probably feel a burn. It's nice to support your local store, and price hikes hurt their business.
