Good quality has its price. I am willing to pay about 10 Euros for an exceptional miniature(I think the old confrontation miniatures were priced like that). For rank and file it depends how big the manufacturer is. If it is a small garage company I accept higher prices and I am happy to support them. No need for them to make a loss or go down. I feel that some have a wrong idea how much it actually costs to produce miniatures. I think many miniatures are actually underpriced.

I've bought some of the Super Dungeon Explore single heroes for $13. USD

So let's say $15 USD is too much for me until inflation changes that.

The days of 33 Ral Partha Orcs is long gone.
And it's been a long time since 1 has been worth any money :P

Yeah, but 33 could buy a lot more other stuff back in the day, too.

Any miniatures business types have a track of mini prices against cost-of-living indexes?
