Default Anyone collect SoB?

Well I've just noticed something on GW's online store. Sisters of Battle heavy weapons cost 5, but if you buy the componant seperately they are between 4.10 and 4.50!

I wonder if anyone else has noticed things like this?

Yes, they like to grab an extra dollar or two for the convenience of a full package.

In some cases it doesn't work that way though - a Kroot sprue (4 carnivores) is $9.50, and a box (16 carnivores) is $35. 4 sprues would be $38.

Realistically it's just about impossible to benefit from this since the shipping fees well outweigh the dollar or two you can make by ordering the cheaper components.

Free shipping if you Mail Order from a GW, so I've heard. You just have to go pick it back up again a week or so later.

It was just an idle observation, and shows how odd the GW pricing system is.

Shhhh... they might figure it out.

I just purchase some necromunda bounty hunters to use in my Witch Hunter army, they cost $14 US for a random blister, or $11 US for selecting the exact model you want from the parts selection.
