Looks like any hopes of price equalisation between NZ and Australia (and certainly Australasia and the UK) are a little forlorn.

The NZ CPI increase for the past year was 0.1% - basically prices in NZ have not increased at all. Yet GW are looking at increases of between 10-33%.

Hopefully some of this is going to staff!

  2. So I guess that GW will not be invited to our parity party.

  3. $9 for one paint?? When I started they were $3.50 each. 24 is too young for back-in-my-day stories haha. Looks like I'll be continuing my trend of picking up cheap half empty ones.

    1. Did you not have a soak in his hot tub time machine yet Tim? Apparently it has rejuvenating properties...

      It is also filled with a sticky red substance... apparently popular with witch elves?

    2. Most hot tubs are just filled with a sticky white substance.

    4. Brian is always after 'Flesh Wash'. I think he bathes in Citadel Paints. Probably explains the price hike.

    5. I see Charlie has upgraded to Hagen's technology solution and now double posts any comment. Classy!

    6. It's probably something wrong with your domain...

    7. Haha yup "only" 24 sorry Tim ;) working on that cauldron of flesh wash for later years. But yea, if anyone wants to sell me a pot of gw flesh wash so I can keep painting my models that'd be choice :)

  4. So whole lot of products I don't buy went up in cost. GW must use the same pricing analyst an Auckland City Council.

    1. These types of disposables are pretty much the only thing I do buy.

    2. At the moment I'm in a similar situation... most my purchases are consumable paints etc. Now at $9 NZD per pot.... not keen. I can get other paint ranges for almost that half price locally. I really like citadel paints but going to have to look at other ranges.

  5. Sounds like good news for YouPost.

  6. Same as everyone else $9.00 per paint bit is too much for me to pay.

    1. Bet you said that at $4.50!

    2. Haha true but in fairness haven't brought new GW paints in years

  7. I gave up on GW paints when they started changing colour lines all the time. Hope this doesnt give Vallejo "ideas".
