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.

  1. LOL! But it's no joke. Make sure you're well heeled with socks from Miniature-Heroes ;)
