Stock Update & News

First off, Happy Easter!

Secondly, here in the UK the clocks have gone on one hour so we are now officially in British Summer Time. I just wish the weather would take notice, even had a bit more snow yesterday.

Still back to the miniatures, and to start with a heads up on these.


It’s a Reaper Learn to Paint Kit, one of 5 they produce. Up until recently they supplied a couple of full pots of MS paint, and the rest as little tester pots. However recently they’ve changed so every paint included is a full sized bottle.

The best bit is they haven’t increased the prices. So when you start to add up what the contents of the kit would cost separately you quickly realise these are stunning value. You get a couple of metal minis and a couple of brushes too, all for £ 18.00.


The slotta base section has also been re-stocked with the most popular bases, and has new photographs to boot.

McKenna’s Miniatures

I received a message from a MH customer wondering if I’d mind giving him a plug for his new painting service. Well I’m always happy to help if I can, so here it is.


As you can see the gentleman concerned is no slouch with a brush, and his prices look good too. Click on the picture to go to his site. He’s on Facebook too.



More greens are in for GoblinAid. Quite a few to see now so follow the banner link to the GoblinAid facebook page. However as its just this minute popped up, behold Judge Goblin from Inso.

Socks & News

Socks I hear you ask? From a miniature retailer?

Well yes actually. I’ve done a little deal with my friend at Superfast Socks and have brought a small sample of his range into the shop to see how they go. If this proves successful then I hope to bring a few more in and perhaps some ladies fashion socks too.

For the time being these are what’s available. Just click on the pictures to go to their respective listings.


Postage Changes

As you are all probably aware Royal Mail are changing their prices yet again on the 2nd April. Not only that, but they are changing the size requirements that define the costs too. Packets are going, with small, medium and large parcels taking their place.

Large letter remains anything up to 25mm thick. Over that is now small parcel. The details are HERE in case anyone would like to look them up.

Clearly this has caused more than a few headaches, and not just for me. So in order to keep postage prices down I’ve opted to go for a flat rate system. Generally this will be Royal Mail 2nd class for most packages, with other shipping providers for bigger orders. I hope you won’t notice much difference apart from a slightly slower delivery time.


Had s small problem with my Mirliton order. A buyer had to cancel their order, so I’m now below the minimum I need to order from them again. So if you thought you’d missed out on this stock order, you haven’t.



I’m starting to get some information on the size, scope and prices of the new Reaper bones. Reaper have announced that they have started dispatching their kickstarter pledges, so things are clearly on the move.

My general assumption is that the ranges will go live for everyone else after ReaperCon 2013. The prices are looking good, especially for the bigger pieces where Bones really scores. The range is going to be big, with quite a few miniatures exclusive to the Bones range. Cthulhu fans won’t be disappointed either.

Now for those customers in the US or who will be travelling to ReaperCon, you’ll have an extra bonus this year. Kev and Sally White of Hasslefree Miniatures will be attending. Make sure you pop along and say Hi to them if you can.


Kev Adams is on the mend which is fantastic news considering what he’s been through. The response to GoblinAid has been remarkable too and some of the goblin greens are now in.


First up is from Jason Wiebe


Next is from Kev White


Lastly one from Russ


More putty masters are signing up to contribute so this is looking to be something very special.


Copy and display the banner below if you are able to help spread the word.


And don’t forget the GoblinAid Facebook page.

As many of you will have heard by now, Kev ‘Goblinmaster’ Adams was attacked in his own home a few days ago.  This was a cowardly attack and could easily have become even more serious than it was.

Thankfully Kev has survived and is now back at home recovering. He did though take quite a beating so probably won’t be back doing what he does best for a little while.

The mini community has been understandably shocked by this, but is now trying to help, and what better way for Kev than with GoblinAid!


Basically loads of sculptors both amateur and professional are going to be giving their time to sculpt a Goblin. These will form a warband and will be available as a group for a limited time only. Not only that but there will be ebay auctions of other Kev and goblin related items too.

All collected funds will go to Kev, but perhaps just as importantly, our collected thanks and best wishes for all his great work, and for a speedy recovery.

The picture link takes you to the GoblinAid facebook page where you can keep up to date with everything that is going on.

Thanks must also go to the organisers behind GoblinAid. Well Done, you’re all a credit to the hobby!
