The last time I bought a FW model was a couple of years ago and I was planning to buy again. Today when I put all the items I previously wanted I've noticed a dramatic increase in price. Was the price hike recent or it's something they do gradually every year?

There indeed had been a price increase. I'd say 1-3 per item at fixed rate on items that cost from 1 to 30. The Phantom Titan went from 350 to 370. Interestingly the power-glaive got cheaper. Probably nobody buying it. In total I'd say + ~5% per item. GW is known to go far higher than that.

The price rise must have happened quite recently, just a few days back things we like they were for a year or two. Forge World doesn't raise prices very often, but they do.

That's what I thought. About a week ago I looked briefly that the items I wanted were still there and yesterday when I was at the checkout I was unpleasantly surprised at the total.

The fact that FW models where starting to seems competitive compared to GW plastic has probably something to do with them raisin their prices.

I'd put more stock in simple inflation.

GW and FW prices rise always exceeds by far inflation rate.

Over 10-15 years, inflation rate in continental europe are around 60% and GW-FW prices increased by 300%

Well, someone must be responsible for the 60% if other stuff didn't increase at all ;)

FW prices increased by 300%

Okay, let's have a look (CJ 36, 2000)

VANQUISHER GRYPHONNE IV CONVERSION KIT - 12, now 14,50
VANQUISHER STYGIES VIII CONVERSION KIT - 11, now 14,50
CONQUEROR GRYPHONNE IV CONVERSION KIT - 10, now 14,50
ORK (FIGHTA-)BOMMER - 60, now 70
TROJAN SUPPORT VEHICLE CONVERSION KIT - 17, now 20,50 (if it weren't out of stock)
IMPERIAL SPACE MARINE - 90, now 102

I'm genuinely shocked! How dare they!

If you must discuss FW pricing on WarSeer then do it in GW pricing thread only.
