I accidentally clicked on the Australian GW.com and my heart almost stopped. Games workshop is going to be dead in Australia in less than a year. With conversion , a dark Eldar codex costs 50$ US. The new Grotesques are 45$ US each (meaning 1 resin model). The dark Eldar battle box is upwards of 175$ US.... I'm thoroughly disgusted. Maybe this is a sign of things to come and GW is giving US a sneak peak at their business model for the world in 5 years.

They'll simply go under with those prices. their well on their way to accomplishing this in the U.S.. Annual price increases with no end in site. Are there anymore excuses out there. Dont tell me...gas prices and tree's are hard to come by for the paper. Their insane.

AUS prices are ridiculous on most things though. They pay roughly $120 US on new video games for example.

I would not really compare the US market to the AUS one

Im curious, who's willing to pay those prices when they get that high in this country...and dont be shy speak up and explain your reasons.

How do they survive. Does a Taco Bell employee make $20 an hour?

Their average earnings is about twice to 40% higher than the US average from what I recall.

the aussies have been bitching at GW so much: sending emails, sending snail mail, starting shit in gw stores (normal aussie crap). That the head of Games-Workshop is meeting with a few of them to sit down and talk about prices and what not. So yea they might not see a price hike for a while if everything goes well for them...


bill they dont have things like toca bell there from what i heard

The aussies have had a counter-GW movement for a while. From listening to Podhammer, I seem to recall that they haven't had a Games Day or Grand Tournament over there in years, because the Australians aren't interested enough in it, they've got their own tournaments and conventions.

More power to them.
