By now I'm sure you've all heard the news about the annual GW price hikes that are rumored to take place in June. No one likes to pay more for the same product, but miniatures aren't the only things that have inflated in price over the years. Luckily, I've already collected most of what I need over the past decade so this news doesn't affect me as much as new or potential players. Looking over the list, some items aren't going up by much, but some are and depending on how many you need, things start to add up quickly.

The good news is you still have a week to lock in those looming purchases at the lower rate, or even lower than that if you know where to look. I'm all for supporting the FLGS and I do, but I've also taken advantage of some pretty sweet deals. Back in the day it was easy to find a cool 35% off list price online, and while most places nowadays typically offer 20% (Warstore), there's always second hand models on ebay or bartertown for even better deals.

I went ahead and ordered some remaining Dark Eldar items from superherogameland this week and managed to save myself over $50.00 (and that's before taking into account the higher prices). So if news of the price hike is getting you down, I recommend checking out some online stores this week. There's some great deals out there that just might keep you in the hobby a little longer and help you complete your existing army investment.
