Don’t miss the full list of GW’s price hikes for 2019 so far, plus all the new pre-order pricing for next week’s new releases is here!

As we reported last night, here is next week’s pre-order lineup with pricing from Games Workshop, and the list of price increases for Citadel Paint, and Start Collecting boxes.

Multiple retailers have already confirmed the prices for the wave two of the Gloomspite Gitz release. Take a look at everything and see what it’ll cost so you can spend your hobby $$$ on the right project for your beats lab.

The following will go on pre-order Saturday the 12th of January 2019 for delivery on the 17th

40k: Urban Conquest Expansion $100

If you didn’t know, Urban Conquest is a supplement for your 40k games. It’s designed to give you a whole selection of Narrative missions to choose from. So what makes Urban Conquest different from the Vigilus book that had a ton of narrative missions already? Well, Urban Conquest comes with different terrain pieces, more narrative missions, and other supplements to give you the ability to run a campaign that spans weeks!

Sector Imperialis: Manufactorum $60

While the Sector Mechanicus and Sector Imperialis terrain sets are already incredibly compatible, the Manufactorum set is designed to make for an aesthetic bridge between the two, depicting one of the countless factories that dot the urban battlefields of the 41st Millennium.

Mangler Squigs/ Moonclan Loonboss on Mangler Squig $80

Manger Squigs have been updated with all new kits and plenty of customization options are in store if you want to field more than one in your army. These guys are blenders on the table, capable of dishing out all kinds of attacks.

Players also have the option to run a Hero version of the Mangler Squig with a Moonclan Loonboss on top. He’s riding a tricked-out version of the normal Mangler Squig and is still able to do some real damage.

Moonclan Loonboss $25


If you were in the market for a cheaper leader option, the regular Loonboss on foot is also hitting the shelves.

Sneaky Snufflers $40

Sneaky Snufflers are Grots dedicated to finding some of the best fungus the realm has to offer. Once they find a real treat, they divide it up and pass it out to a nearby group of Grots giving them bonuses.

Gobbapalooza $50


What makes these guys interesting is that they are a squad of heroes themselves. They all offer some kind of different bonus until they die. At full strength, there’s all sorts of help getting dished out from these guys!

Dankhold Troggoth $65


The Dankhold Troggoth is a brand new Troggoth coming to the Gloomspite Gitz faction. This Troggoth is big, dumb, and angry. He can really pack a wollop too. But what’s even cooler is that you can also build a Hero version known as the Dankhold Troggboss.

If you want to talk about a melee powerhouse, you’re looking at it. His giant club does D6 wounds a piece and can even outright kill a model with his bare hands for free each turn. Gloomspite Gitz are looking to be a real force to be reckoned with!

Rockgut Troggoths $60


Rockgut Troggoths are nothing new in AoS. However, they’re getting brand new models and the Bad Moon Allegiance Ability makes them a real problem to deal with. You may want to grab a Troggboss and a few of these guys as heavy-hitters.

GW’s 2019 Price Increases


If you missed it, Games Workshop recently made an announcement saying that their Citadel paint pots and all Start Collecting Sets would be going up in price:


Jan 4th, 2019:

Hiya folks,

In the spirit of openness, we’ve got a quick bit of news for you today: as of the 4th of February this year, the price of paints and some of the Start Collecting! sets will change.

Paint pots will have a small increase of 20 pence per pot (or local currency equivalent). The paint sets, though, will have no change, making them an even better way to round out your painting arsenal.

Kudos to GW for being upfront this time about thier pricing with everybody. Let’s take a look at everything that is changing starting with the paint range.

Citadel Airbrush Paint

Multiple retailers have confirmed the following price increases here in the states:

Citadel Paints are looking to actually go up by 30 Cents ($4.55). It’s important to note that there are a few paints like certain pigmented layers (Retributor Armor for example) are going up by 45 Cents. All in all, there aren’t any paints out there that are spiking in price, everything is pretty evenly distributed across the board. 

Start Collectings Price Change

The Prices of Start Collectings are going up a few dollars. However, the value that comes in the box still makes it worth it in our opinion. Take a look at this list of the Start Collectings and their new prices. It’s also important to note that Idoneth Deepkin and Maggotkin don’t have a Start Collecting on GW’s online store currently. However, they are listed for a price. There could be two new Start Collectings on the way to the shelves in the future!

Warhammer: 40k Prices


The following prices are up from the previous $85 MSRP:

  • Start Collecting: Deathwatch $95
  • Start Collecting: Blood Angels $95
  • Start Collecting: Chaos Space Marines $90
  • Start Collecting: Drukhari $90 
  • Start Collecting: Craftworlds $90
  • Start Collecting: Astra Militarum $90
  • Start Collecting: Space Marines $90
  • Start Collecting: Necrons $90
  • Start Collecting: Orks $90
  • Start Collecting: Tyranids $95
  • Start Collecting: Militarum Tempestus $95
  • Start Collecting: T’au Empire $95
  • Start Collecting: Skitarii $95

Warhammer: Age of Sigmar Prices

aos wal seraphon Age of Sigmar Summoner's War: Seraphon Tactics

The following prices are up from the previous $85 MSRP:

  • Start Collecting: Daemons of Slaanesh $90
  • Start Collecting: Idoneth Deepkin $90 (Possible New Start Collecting on the way)
  • Start Collecting: Beasts of Chaos $95
  • Start Collecting: Kharadron Overlords $95
  • Start Collecting: Khorne Bloodbound $95
  • Start Collecting: Slaves to Darkness $90
  • Start Collecting: Daemons of Tzeentch $90
  • Start Collecting: Fyreslayers $95
  • Start Collecting: Beastclaw Raiders $90
  • Start Collecting: Stormcast Vanguard $95
  • Start Collecting: Seraphon $90
  • Start Collecting: Ironjawz $95
  • Start Collecting: Skaven Pestillens $90
  • Start Collecting: Greenskinz $90 
  • Start Collecting: Sylvaneth $90
  • Start Collecting: Malignants $90
  • Start Collecting: Skeleton Horde $90
  • Start Collecting: Flesh-eater Courts $90
  • Start Collecting: Daemons of Khorne $90
  • Start Collecting: Daemons of Nurgle $90
  • Start Collecting: Maggotkin of Nurgle $95 (Possible New Start Collecting on the way)

Keep in mind these price changes aren’t happening until February 4th, 2019.

Ultimately, any time a price goes up, people become skeptical. However, at the end of the day, the price change is roughly what you pay tax wise here in the US, about less than 10%. Remember too since their debut back in January of 2016 (3 years ago) they have stayed the same $85 MSRP until now.

Overall you’re still getting a good deal for all of the value Start Collectings have to offer. As for paints, if you may be wanting to venture out to other brands. Army Painter dropper bottles are a fantastic start at only $2.99 each!
