Kabuki Models

The range of Kabuki models I keep in stock has been expanded.

More of the popular Big Sisters range,


and their 21st Century Pin-ups range too


I’ve also been busy in the wood shed again. Some more hardwood display bases, and a new range of 15mm MDF ones too. All now easier to find too as they have their own Display Bases section on the main shop sidebar.


The Slotta Bases have got their own section on the main side bar too.

Finally don’t forget to have a look at :

Issue 9 Cover

If you own an airbrush or are thinking of getting one, read this article by the editor first. Lots of information regarding these useful little tools.

New Year – Old Message

A belated Happy New Year from me here at MH HQ. I hope you all had a good Christmas?

I spent part of my break going through the Reaper DHL and Warlord listings in the shop and re-formatting quite a few of them. Added a few key words to the listings too, so for example if you type in fighter, more fighter types will appear in the search. Wizard for more wizards etc. I’ve also put the faction in the Warlord listings. Again type in reven and all the reven faction miniatures will be displayed.

I’ve also been getting lots of messages from people asking about getting items that aren’t in stock. So I thought it might be helpful to re-state what MH is about.

Miniature-Heroes is basically a pre-order centre for the more hard to get in the UK miniatures. If it’s not in stock I can order it in for you. Just order in the normal way and I do the rest.

Currently I have 5900 active listings in the shop. Now I’m only a one man band and I don’t have a huge warehouse so stocking everything is not going to happen any time soon. I do try and hold the popular items, but when the Reaper Dark Heaven Legends' range has over 1600 items in it alone, its difficult.

I’m not a limited company, I’m a sole trader. This means I can’t just close the company and disappear with your pre-order cash, like some have in the past. I’m liable for everything so your order is safe. It’ll either be completed or if I can’t, refunded in full. I’ve been trading since 2008 which means I’m now just entering my seventh year, and third in the new shop.

Bottom line is if it’s not in stock I will do my best to get it for you. Estimated waiting times are below.

Dark Sword – 10 days to 4 weeks. Not stock items.

Denizen – In stock but being phased out.

Iron Wind Metals – 10 days to 4 weeks. Not stock items.

Kabuki Models – 10 to 16 days. Some in stock.

Mannequin – 5 to 10 days. Some in stock.

Mirliton – 6 to 8 weeks. Some in stock.

Otherworld – 5 to 10 days. Some in stock.

Pre-Owned – All in Stock.

Reaper – 3 to 5 weeks. Popular items from most ranges in stock, including paint and ‘Bones plastics’

Reaper Update

Reaper have released quite a bit for the new year. As usual some miniatures, and this time more paint colours too. Just click on the pictures to go to the listings.


Master Series Paint Singles




Paint Set


Despite Royal Mail being awkward about the amount of paint they will carry, I’m still posting it out as normal. No problems so far, so I don’t see any reason to change at the moment.

Finally a bit of eye candy.

Another from the talented brush of Jabberwocky.

14212: Kristianna, Crusaders Warlord


And one from me.
