Golden has a substantially bigger pot, which forces you to bulk buy. This biases the price lower. Other paints have bigger pots but those sizes weren’t selected to keep things normalized and fair. This is the smallest Golden makes.

Price Selection

All prices listed in the table above are MSRP (either taken directly from the brand’s website/online distribution channel or the mode/median price is inferred). The table below shows the inherent challenges when listing a price comparison. Different vendors will offer different discounts/pricing and claim different original prices. The column “website” below shows the main URL but if you click it, it will take to the listing.

This whole table is the online pricing of Privateer Press P3’s Morrow white. Things to notice, Discount Games Inc. has different pricing on their website versus their Amazon storefront for the exact same product. Things like what you see below make it hard to compare. I notice $4.50 as a common number (even the euro conversion is close). In this circumstance, I am inferring $4.50 as the MSRP (which means the lower prices would be competitive price reduction – Bertrand model economics at work).
