Vallejo Paint price increases

I guess it happens to everyone at some point. Even NON GW companies:

From an email I got:

Every now and again a supplier informs us of a price increase and whilst most of the time the changes are relatively minor and occur without fuss, this one's big - so we're telling you all about it! Acrylicos Vallejo, that wonderful paint company from Spain, have decided to increase the prices of the individual paints within their major paint ranges - Model Color, Model Air and Game Color - to £2.10 each, as well as pretty much everything else they produce.


The price rise will occur on the Maelstrom Games website from the 11th of May onwards - that's this Friday, people - so if you want your Vallejo paints or paint sets or sundries at the old prices, you'd better get them by no later than midnight on Thursday night! We'll hold our prices until then even if the items are not in stock, so please feel free to order to your heart's content.

These changes are pretty big and are truly a reflection of the financial situation in Europe these days, although we can't blame Acrylicos Vallejo for that of course.

We don't know the exact details of all the price changes as yet for anything but the 17ml dropper bottles, so please bear with us: we'll let you know as soon as we know.
