space marine walpaper bigGuess how many items have gone up TWICE in less than a year? There are some shocking reveals from this complete list of GW price hikes for 2020.

GW just announced that another wave of price hikes is coming in June. Of course, no one wants to hear that things are getting more expensive, but how much more are the prices rising? We’ve compared data of June’s new price hike that was sent to retailers to the last price hike in 2019 for you to compare.

Shocking Reveals: Complete List of GW Price Hikes For 2020

From the first of June, around 400 Warhammer products will change in price (there are well over 3,000 Warhammer items available right now). Most of the items that are changing haven’t moved in price for years

While they did not misspeak, as you’re about to see, there are some items that have been adjusted TWICE since last year. In fact, 135 out of the 370 adjusted items just had their prices increased in July 2019- less than a year ago.

However please be aware that we did not have access to some retail prices from 2019 to completely compare the two sets of adjustments, so our conclusion for our overall averages could be a little off.

Everything that’s been adjusted twice has gone up about 23% on average. The average adjusted price for this years price adjustments is about 9.87%.   Remember, this is just according to the stuff we’ve been able to track.

Now here’s a more in-depth look at some popular items.

Price Increases Steadily Approaching 50% Since Last Year

You can see that it’s gone from $82.5 to $90 in 2019 and from $90 to $106 in 2020. In the past year, it’s gone up almost 30% for the exact same kit.

These have been some of the bigger adjustments we’ve seen made to GW’s list but be sure to look at both lists as there is a lot of items covered. We’re closing in on 50% increases for some items now.
