Games Workshop: Time to Pay a Premium for Paints? (UPDATED)

In case you have been living under a rock, GW is releasing new paint.  Faeit 212 posted a bunch about it and I ain't going to go into that but I was kinda happy about it.  This was until I looked at GW's website and saw the price of their existing line has almost doubled.  From $3.70 to $6 even.  I don't know if this is to capitalize on those of us in the hobby that is looking to buy up all of the existing pots to make sure their future models for their existing armies look uniform or this is the new price. 

Looking at their competition being cheaper and even better in a lot of ways, this seems like a big bone head move.

UPDATE: I saw that Liquid Green Stuff is now also $6. All signs are point to a 62% increase in their paints.

  1. GW makes it part of their mission to make bonehead moves that alienates their customer base. It's not until those angry gamers don't get replaced by new ones they will keep doing what they do.
