Sucks to be you,.. damn, no, sucks to be us,.. no, wait, just you.

I’m not sure of the old price differential, but checking out the new Finecast prices was interesting.

10.50 for an Eldar Shadowseer in the UK, but $18.25 (+sales tax) in the US.

Given the current exchange rate – which GW obviously can’t ride like a rollercoaster – of 1.64 quid to $1, where it was for years and years, that 10.50 should be 17.22.

So US customers have a $1.03 +sales tax bump. I’m not sure if that was the case with the metal minis, but since I’m such a big fan of plastics, I don’t really care. Metal was for chumps anyway.

  1. I haven’t bought a finecast model yet, but I will. Nobody likes price bumps, especially multiple ones, but I don’t think the price of the model has exceeded its value. And the Finecast price is still reflective of a company hoping for a deft ROI, which they’ll probably do because we’re dorks who like our finely crafted dork toys and have the money to afford it.
