Happy Christmas from Miniature-Heroes

First off I’d like to wish all my customers old and new a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Last Posting Dates

Its also a good time to mention the last posting day for 2nd class UK inland mail is the 18th December. As the cart is set to apply 2nd class automatically to all UK sales, this means next Wednesday will be the last day I post orders before Christmas 2013.

After the 18th I will send 1st Class, but only if you specifically ask for it and are willing to pay the extra.

After the 21st I won’t be posting again until after Christmas.

Reaper News

Upcoming release pdf

My next order with them will be submitted on the 17th Dec, so if you want some of their excellent miniatures for the end of January please order before then.

Pre-Owned Update

Some more oldies looking for new homes with a few needing some tlc. As always just click on the pictures.



FigurePainter Magazine

Just to let you know the Christmas edition of Figurepainter Magazine will be out on the 16th December. Being the first Christmas edition its going to be a real treat. And I can say that with some certainty as I know about one of the things that’s in it.

Post our paint


There is now a dedicated Facebook page for the Post our Paint Campaign. Just click on the picture to go to it.

However to briefly recap:

Royal mail told me that the Civil Aviation Authority and the Department of Transport were responsible for the water based paint restriction being imposed.

I’ve since written to the CAA and it turns out this isn’t the case at all. As all my Reaper paint comes in via air freight from the US I think they night have said something to me if it had been.

So, RM haven’t been exactly truthful, whether by accident or design. They are now saying its actually because paint in transit can leak and cause damage to other packages. This is a fair point, though why 600ml of paint is safe yet 650ml isn’t has yet to be explained. Oh and 1 Litre of alcohol is safe too, even in a glass container!

The dialogue goes on but if you want to help out please sign the petition or write to RM directly, and politely ask why they have brought in this restriction. If you tweet, that seems the best way to get hold of them.

Olleys Armies Kickstarter

This is now in its last 5 days and lots of the stretch goals have been unlocked. Bob is a great British Sculptor whose been producing quality miniatures for many years.
