Otherworld Update & More Bones


Got round to updating the Otherworld section of the shop today. Nice start of a range of useful accessories and a very large Purple Worm. The Otherworld range of Goblins is not also a stock item and available for immediate dispatch.

Click on the pictures for more info.


More of Reaper’s Bones miniatures are now in the shop. mainly the bigger pieces like those below.


More are ordered and will hopefully be on their way shortly.

This does however bring me on to ordering in good time for Christmas 2013. Yes I know you don’t want to think about it at the moment, but actually its not that far off now.

It’s looking like there will be one Mirliton order before Christmas. That will probably be in the next few weeks, so if you want anything from their range in time for Christmas, please order soon.

Since Reaper have re-worked their shipping charges I no longer order on a strictly weekly basis. I’m now placing much bigger orders, but a bit less often. So things are a bit slower and therefore ordering in good time is wise. Again if you want stuff in time for Christmas, please order early to avoid disappointment.

Hope to have the popular Basecrafts basing kits back in stock soon too.

And finally…

A customer of mine got in contact to tell me about his blog showcasing everything goblin / orcy. Check it out Here And those with good MH blog memories may even spot his recent MH pre-owned purchase.

Pre-Owned Update & News


Reaper order update

I’m probably tempting fate by writing this, but I hope to be in possession of a very large box of Reaper miniatures sometime on Thursday 19th September. Just got the final customs clearance and their hand over to Parcelforce to get sorted. Then, finally, lots of orders being filled with the pre-order you’ve all be kind enough to place.

I’m sorry for the delay and than you for your patience.


I was made aware of this last night and thought it deserves a wider audience. This it taken from the Reaper main site :

Phishing Alert

We've received notification that someone is sending out emails claiming to be us asking recipients to supply credit card information. DON'T DO THIS!

Reaper will never send you an email asking you for your credit card information.

Most of these emails are coming from, an email that doesn't exist, and replying to it will take you to a very dubious email address that's definitely not associated with us.

We don't store credit card information on our servers, and all transactions involving money are protected end-to-end with industry-standard 256-bit SSL encryption. We're doing what we can to investigate and stop these emails.

Thanks for your support.

Please pass this on to anyone you know who may have dealt with Reaper in the past. This needs stamping out before innocent people loose any hard earned money.

Figurepainter Magazine

Something that is however worth spending just a little of your hard earned money on is this, the latest issue of Figure Painter magazine. Just click on the picture to go to their homepage.


And if you haven’t tried it yet, why not you’re missing out?

Hardwood Display Plinths now Available


I’m very pleased to announce I now have a range of stylish hardwood display plinths in stock. Just the thing to set off that competition piece, bust or small diorama.

Made from sustainable English hardwoods, these are handmade by yours truly. I can also take commissions, but these will have to be discussed on a one to one basis.

Just click on the picture to go to the section. There are matt Black MDF bases too.


Still waiting for Reaper to dispatch my Bones orders. Despite frequent enquiries they are being very coy. As soon as I know more I will let you all know.

New from DarkSword & News



Well last week was awkward to say the least. Now Reaper have got through their kickstarter pledges the more day to day aspects of running their business have started to come to the fore.

As you can see from their post HERE they are now adapting to the increase in shipping charges that the USPS imposed on them, and everyone else in the US back in January of this year.

This has had a knock on effect for their trade customers too, of which I am one. The bottom line is the shipping costs I’m now being charged have seriously increased, so regrettably I’ve had to put up my Reaper prices across the board. Already placed orders are unaffected, but orders from the 1st September 2013 onwards are now at the new prices.

This also means I may not be ordering from them every week as I need to have a good order value to make the shipping worthwhile.

This doesn’t mean I will stop carrying Reaper products, far from it. But it does mean the ordering waiting times may increase a little.
