Looks like GW are increasing their prices if the post from BoLS is to be believed. Whilst an annual increase is not an issue for me personally, the steep rise of some of the prices is. In particular, the percentage increases are above what might have been expected given the general state of the global economy coupled with "disposable" income.
So, I'm saving up for the new chaos codex! I feel the pain of the horde army players and painters out there. Perhaps small elite forces are the way forward for me now.
