  1. Scions and Tyrants confirmed! https://www.warhammer-community.com/2019/07/17/warcry-choosing-your-warbandgw-homepage-post-1/
  2. It's only a disappointment if your expectations are too high. If you take the Studio Previews as what they really are, a preview of some of the things to be released in the near future, and not as wish fulfilment, previews become much more enjoyable. For me the real disappointment is the 5 pages of salt we'll get on Saturday no matter what will be revealed.
  3. There's a lot of plastic in there, especially with all the terrain, so my guess is the same as starter box: 95£/160$US, or maybe a little bit more considering the recent price increase.
  4. There are many reason to increase the prices of products, inflation and externalities are only two of them. I agree that the LOC increase is pretty steep, but some people speculate that it's to bring the price in line with the Great Unclean One and the Keeper of secrets, because they serve the same function in an army. Which is probably why the Verminlord's price is also increasing. Does it seem harsh? Yes! Can they do it with little backlash? Well yes, because on the one hand in a few months we'll have collectively forgotten about the increase, and on the other they have very little competition. There's very few products that can replace the daemon lords (for example), and those that do exist (like Creature Caster) are still fairly expensive. And with many tournaments enforcing a strict "GW models only", it's just "safer" to buy the real thing. Will they lose some sales? Most likely. Will it result in a net loss, versus the additional revenue from the price increase? I'm pretty sure their finance department doesn't think so. But they could be wrong. The costs of R&D and mold production cost are offset over the many years of production of the model, and the models sold today pay for the R&D of products that will be sold in 2-3 years. Also there's very little depreciation of the old models because their purpose stays essentially the same regardless of the age of the design. A clanrat model that is 15 years old serves the same purpose as a clanrat that was designed last week. Until the models are replaced, there is no product to take their place in the market. That's why many very old models have not been replaced yet: it's more or less a net loss for GW. I will agree that GW has a peculiar price structure, but they can afford it because they are the biggest player in a very niche market where competition is not direct (i.e. most companies makes models for their own game, not all for the same game). From what I can tell, the price of a model isn't based solely on it's size, but more often then not on it's role in an army, it's rarity, and how many you are likely to need in an army.
  5. The same game store published the second part of the price increase list. Read and despair.

Yeah, I'm full of good news today. Sorry about that.
  6. There's an economic concept called inflation that dictates that pretty much everything increase in cost (and value, to an extend) over time. A kit that was released 5 years ago with no price increase is now a little over 10% underpriced. So once in a while you need to rise prices to keep the price of older kits in line with the newer products. There's also externalities to take into account: the cost of materials (mostly plastic, but also paper and cardboard), shipping, maintenance of installation, salary of employees... all of those have more than likely risen in the last few years. Brexit probably doesn't help, but it's hard to tell how much of an effect it has. It certainly cause uncertainty in the markets which is never a good thing. And that new factory means they took a VERY big loan that will need to be repaid. The factory isn't online yet, and I doubt they built it to reduce cost, more than likely it's just to increase production.
  7. I just noticed that the list of price change my LFG posted on Facebook is different from the dump we got.

No prices, sorry. Keep in mind that I'm in Canada, so either the increase is different for every country, or they could both be incomplete lists.
  8. One of my local game store just confirmed the price increase on Facebook. They say it will take effect on the 8th of July. I'm in Canada, so the increase is not only for the US.
  9. Here's a list of all the contrast paints on Savage Orruks over white primer. https://imgur.com/gallery/fZMKNVS I, myself, think that Ork Flesh is too bright, and I prefer Militarum Green or Creed Camo, but it really depends if you want a more grimdark or cartoonish look to your orks. If you use it over green, either you'll need a very light green basecoat, or you'll barely see the difference between shadows and highlights. Or you could just use the contrast as a precise wash, that could also work.
  10. Vallejo Primer is fine. Is it the very best? Maybe not, I generally prefer Stynylrez, it flows a bit better, although I've had a few problems with the white. You can get a bad bottle of either product, Stynylrez in particular becomes completely useless if it freezes, which can happen in warehouse storage or during transport in the winter. Vallejo White is a bit thicker. Stynylrez Grey is amazing though. I've primed a few hundreds mini with both. If your Vallejo primer rubs off, then either you didn't wash your model properly, or you didn't shake the bottle before using it, or your bottle went bad.
  11. They wouldn't offer them for pre-order if they were delayed. If you can pre-order them you can be pretty much sure they have the books and they probably have already been shipped to the retailers. One shipment being stuck in custom doesn't mean that they all are, it really depends on why it's stuck, and we don't know that. Because they want to release both version (printed and digital) at the same time. Otherwise some people will complain that it's unfair because either they can't access the digital version, or they'd have to buy it twice if they want the printed version but also not be stuck with the old rules in the meanwhile. It's also easier to handle on the marketing side: they don't have to hype the same product twice. Funny thing is that the shipment might have already been released but they're just waiting for a free slot in the very busy summer release schedule.
  12. Although I agree it's unlikely, Khorne and Stormcasts put a hole in that theory, although my guess is the first two versions of those battletomes were following the old AoS philosophy of smaller factions. They were probably in the pipeline before the change of strategy. The question is simply how did they planned everything a year or two ago? I doubt GW thought that the IDK Battletome had problems right has it was released, and at best they started working on a new one 6 months after its release, with at least a year in production, so the very very best case scenario would be a new Battletome this fall, but I very much doubt IDK are a priority right now. Maybe next year. Big maybe.
  13. Dear God the Apocalypse boxes are 100£! They can't do that to me, that deal is way too good. Will someone think of the wallets?? Why won't they leave my wallet alone!?!? (I saw a breakdown of the value of each box yesterday, and it's between 150 and 165£ each)
  14. Gallery of all the paints on Savage Orruks and Scuttlings, plus some early tests: https://imgur.com/gallery/fZMKNVS What is contrast? My guess is ink plus flow-air and some matte medium. What is it good for? Pretty much anything organic and natural like flesh, fur, hair, leather, wood, stone... Contrast it pretty good at reproducing the chaotic texture of these materials. It's also a very good airbrush paint, better than the Citadel Air range in general. I'm pretty sure they can be used as a precise wash, but I haven't tested that yet. What is it NOT good for? Metal and armors in general, any large flat surface. There's not metallic contrast paint, although I guess you could use it as a quick base for NMM. Armor usually need a pretty even coat of paint too look good, and Contrast will pool in the middle of large flat surface, not unlike Citadel Washes "coffee stain", although the pooling doesn't look as bad as the coffee stain. Methodology: All the models were primed with Vallejo Surface Primer White with an airbursh. Contrast was applied with a Citadel medium wash brush, undiluted, with one thin-ish coat. The top paint is on the right, the bottom paint is on the left. I know it feels backward. I listed the closest color in the rest of the Citadel range under every image, but many of the Contrasts are more saturated than their base/layer counterpart. Conclusions: Contrast stains. It stains your fingers (and your cloths) much more than normal paint. Don't drop a bottle. Contrast runs, A LOT. The "One Thick Coat" motto only works if you cover the whole model because it will run everywhere. If you just want to cover a specific area of the model, go Duncan (two thin coats). You can see in the second picture that I used a bit too much Magos Purple and it ran down the legs on it's own. I had a similar problem in the Contrast medium + ink test. Not all Contrast paints are "born" equal. Maybe half of the paints are rather light and will let the color underneath show through, the other half is pretty opaque and the color underneath will only dictate the lightness of the final result. The lighter paints could be combine with a non-white undercoat and act more as a filter(a color-shifting paint). Some paints, notably the light ones, would probably look better with the new Grey Seer and Wraithbone, notably the flesh tones. But I wantedd a neutral test first. Contrast work really well with an airbrush without any thinner. The thick ink consistency is just perfect. You CAN get the pooling in the recess effect if you overspray. With an airbrush you usually don't want any pooling, just a very light coat, but with Contrast the overspray will act a bit like a wash, although not as much as when it's applied with a brush. The ink will also tint the flat surface more than with a brush. If you hate Citadel Pots, take your sprue cutter and cut the plastic hinge to free the lid. The lid floating above the pot is a large factor in the instability of the pot and the pooling of paint on its side. You can also get bottle holders for like 3$. For airbrush, get a bunch of plastic pipettes.
  15. No, I'm sure we'll see a battletome for all (or most) of those factions within about a year. The question is: will we get those first, or the ones that are NOT mentionned. Many (like Tzeentch) are excluded for fluff reason, of course.
