Post Christmas Update

Well I hope you all had a good Christmas?

I received 2 reaper orders on the 28th December so I now have lots of back orders to get out. That is along with the orders for stuff I do currently have in stock.

With New Years Day being on a Tuesday it is hampering me a little with getting things out. Some orders will be dispatched on Monday morning with the rest going on Wednesday.

My next order with Reaper will be on the 31st December 2012. I know I previously said it would be on the 6th January 2013, but the pre-orders are beginning to build up. So if there is anything you want please order before the 31st.

Reaper have also sent me this PDF of their new upcoming releases.


My next Mirliton order will be being placed for mid January 2013. So again if there is anything that you want, please order before then.


My Join In To Win, Facebook promotion draws to a close as the old year turns to the new. If you want a chance to win one of three £ 10.00 MH vouchers, just register to be included in the draw. 31 entrants so far so the chances of winning are still pretty good.

The turnout for this one has been good, so I’ve got some other things planned for a little later in the year.

Happy New Year,

Pre-Owned & Reaper Updates

Last update before Christmas, and its a bit of a mixture. Pre-owned ranging from pre-slotta fantasy to space marines.

Reaper have released another shark themed menace of the underwater world.

There is now another ruined tower scenery piece ready to go to the next customer who spends over £ 100.00 in the store before postage too.

Scroll down and click on the pics for more details.

Fantasy – pre slotta

It all comes in premade sections that you just have to paint and assemble. Roughly 200mm in diameter and 200mm high.

Join In To Win

Join in to win is still running on facebook until the new year. Pop along and register, no skill required to enter for the chance to win one of 3 £ 10.00 MH gift vouchers.

Finally it just leaves me to wish all my customers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Barring technical problems I’ll be around all over Christmas and the New Year. Order dispatching will depend on Royal Mail and the times they are operational.

New Reaper Bones Release

A little too late for Christmas 2012, but an excellent way to kick off 2013. Reaper have released the last selection in their original Bones release.

Portal 29 & News


The last Portal of the year, and sadly the last with Mr Rozzell in the editors’ chair. Portal will continue with a new team and I wish them every success. It also seemed a good time for me to climb down from the hill. Thanks for reading my ramblings :)

The Wamp / Reaper painting contest has now been and gone. I got my entry just about finished and entered. You’ll see the picture in the magazine but just because I can it’s also below.


Clearly I didn’t win, the standard was very high which was to be expected. But it was also a learning experience and one I’ve found rather useful. First time I’ve entered a competition and the first time I’ve ever really painted a plastic miniature. One Khorne 40K thing many years ago which was a discouraging experience, but nothing till the Bones Ogre above.

So on the minus side, its small mould lines are a pain to get rid of, and I’m stull struggling getting used to holding something that weighs so little.

On the plus side, it did take paint well, and very old citadel paint for the most part at that. Detail levels are good, and of course the price is excellent. When the full range of these go live around March 2013, its going to be a big event for the hobby. How big we’ll have to wait and see, but if their kickstarter was anything to go by…


The last day for posting in the UK for items to arrive before Christmas Day 2012 is the 20th December 2012. I won’t be posting anything more after that time until January 7th 2013.

However as usual the shop and I will be here in the electronic either all over Christmas and the New Year. So if you want to place an order or send a query please feel free to do so.

The first FaceBook promotion is going well and I’d like to say a big thank you to all those that have signed up so far. The ‘likes’ total is now 109 which is very gratifying. I’m now thinking about some more elaborate competitions for the new year. I have some rare Reaper goodies and other bits and pieces that could prove very tempting.

The current contest is still live though. Just enter for the chance to win one of three £ 10.00 MH shop vouchers. 26 entrants so far so the odds on winning are actually pretty good.

FaceBook Competition Link

Right, I think that's about it for now.

Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year

MH FaceBook Promotion

I’m currently trying out a new feature on FaceBook. It’s an app that allows contests and sweepstakes to be run via the faceBook site.

So I’ve started off with a test contest that you might like to join in with. It’s really very easy, just follow the link below and register. No painting of miniatures required. If fact no skill at all, just a faceBook account and a couple of minutes of your time.

I’m giving away 3 x £ 10.00 MH vouchers. The winners will be picked at random from the list of registered entries after the contest ends on the 31st December 2012.

Clearly I’d like FaceBook ‘likes’ for the MH page in return, but its not a requirement in order to enter the contest. I’d also like this to go as viral as possible, so if you’d also be good enough to ‘share’ this on your own timelines it would be much appreciated.

If this goes well, then there will be other, bigger contests throughout the rest of 2013.

But remember, you have to Join In To Win!

New Reaper Releases

Some new and occasionally seasonal offerings from Reaper.

Click the pics for more info.

Limited Edition Miniature

The chap below is called, Santa Dwarf, which pretty much explains what he is. Reaper are offering him for sale from now to the 18th December. Due to ordering constraints I can only offer him till the evening of Sunday 16th December. After 8.00pm he’ll disappear till next year. So if you want one, please get your orders in quick.
