Default Cost of new vehicles

I was on forgeworlds website and i was looking at the prices for Tau vehicles, when i noticed that the piranha cost (at least i think so?) $120 american

how much will they lower the price by when it comes out in the new codex ???

will it be $55 australian just like the devilfish, or more/less than that ???

Resin models cost more than plastic.

The Pirhanna ought to be as much as a Sentinel.

I think a Land Speeder is the same price as a Sentinel, and Pirhanas are basically worsely armed (Multi-Meltas > Fusion Blasters, Heavy Bolters > Burst Cannons) Land Speeders so it would be logical for them to be cheap.

I think you have your currencies/conversion rates mixed up.

A Forgeworld Piranha costs 28.00 - which comes out to AUS$65 (not inc. shipping).

As the new model is in plastic (which is cheaper than resin) - my estimate (see this thread in the rumours board) was a AUS$35-$40 boxed set for the Piranha (judging by the US stockist prices given).

For the record, here in Australia - the Sentinel is $35, whilst the Land Speeder is $50 (nearly everything here is a ripoff :\).

Just so you know, its a rip off in Canada too. Also, i feel bad for the people who bought the piranha from forgeworld for that kind of price, they're going to kick themselves when it comes out in plastic.

40k has never been cheap, but since GW raised the prices, its just rampant wallet rape
