But cheap plastic moulds cost a lot of money to make!

To be fair, steel moulds do cost a fair bit of initial outlay. But for some reason those who have been paid off are still going up.

The rubber moulds used for resin, however, are dirt cheap, as is the material used. Throw in abysmal casting quality and I'm left astounded as to how they can charge what they do for resin models.

Because nothing else says love for your customer base like trying to gouge them further.
I was expecting a bigger blanket increase on the range though. Not everything seems to have gone up.

It alternates. Core choices went up last year. This year we get to pay £35 (!) for a Predator.

The time to invest in a 3D printer is now.

When it's infinitely cheaper to buy a printer and print your own models, GW is absolutely fucked.

Okay, I lie, it won't be. However it will make their products infinitely more accessible and will either make them pull their gestalt head out of whatever dark hole it's been shoved into or stir them into trying their best to crack down on piracy. Because that's always successful.

So, vague attempts at cracking down on piracy. They've already done that with 3D models already.

3D printers are not quite there yet, either with quality or price. In five to ten years, though? It's going to be huge for the wargaming market. Huge. Then again, same with Kickstarter and other crowdsourcing sites.

I suppose I can be glad that I can enjoy the 40k universe in other mediums really, cause I can't imagine it will be cheap to get started in the model area anytime soon.
