Thread: where to buy minis

    Default where to buy minis

    I know others had problems with a certain former distributor, but I never did personally. However they are gone now.

    Where can I buy (In the USA) minis from multiple makers?
    I want to order stuff from Reaper, Privateer Press, Hasslefree, and possibly a couple others.
    Is there a good source so I can pick them all up from the same distributor or will I have to go company by company?

    EDIT: Maybe I should add that I\'ve bought stuff from them and have good experiences.

    Vince, you should look in the Excellent Service thread as well.

    There\'s a few listed in there complete with links. I\'d put them here too, but I\'m at work right now and will be leaving soon.
    Personally my favorite multi-brand shops are TheWarStore and the CMON shop itself.

    :D

    Thanks, but war store doesn\'t sell privateer press and CMON doesn\'t sell Reaper.

    You could try Brandon at Rattlehead Games or John Coviello at Little Shop of Magic. Exodus Road might fit the bill, and I believe Valloa\'s Vale still has a vareity of stuff available (though Anne has renamed it, and I forget the new title of her shop).

    I can\'t remember if Fozzboz is still shipping, but I believe he still has a variety of stock listed, at a pretty good discount too if its still running.

    Little Shop of Magic

    Ah, Valloa\'s Vale is the new name:

    I took a look at the Fantization.com that Ritual posted and they carry both Reaper and PP. (that\'s a new one for me, thanks Anders!)

    :cool:

    is there a way to search them?
    Also, while they claim to carry freebooter, they don\'t actually have any - not just out of stock, there\'s simply no catalog when you click the link.

    Freebooter:
    https://www.fantization.com/cgi-bin/..._Catalog1.html

    And this page gives you an overview of the lines they carry:
    https://www.fantization.com/cgi-bin/...iniatures.html

    I haven\'t found any search function, though...

    EDIT: Ah, found it... This page at the upper right:

    Oh,
    I think the PP page was just so pic intensive that it wasn\'t loading. I see it\'s trying, but I just get a blank page.

    The search function is helpful, but it didn\'t find what I sought by the name. Luckily I knew the Reaper part #.

    Yeah, I\'ve also noticed their site is quite slow at times.

    Umm the warstore does too carry Privateer Press.. the whole range

    http://thewarstore.net/warmachine.html

    Of warmachine for example. And I might add at a discount.

    Sorry. I meant to say Hasslefree. No Heresy either.

    K,

    Well I think your chances of finding a one stop shopping source that carries averything is near impossible. Plus Id rather order from multiple sources to get exactly what I want than a lot of Out of stocks from someone who claims they carry it all.

  16. #16

    Default

    true, and with the discount, it\'s quite likely I\'d make up the extra shipping cost.

    Trust me I feel your pain, there\'s lots of stuff out there Id love to get but with ouut going straight to the company its virtually impossible to get it.

    The problem is the distubitor system in this country can\'t or won\'t carry every small 1 man operations product line so in order for the retailer to get the line they have to go direct.. just to sell it to you.

    Most small companys can\'t offer deep discounts as they are barely making a profit as it is..to offer discounts to a retailer especiall a online retailer that discounts generally means the 2nd party makes more money off the final sale than the origional company..its hard to stay in business that way. Thats why I always try to support the small business, you tend to get good service, exactly what you want at a timely manner. If its shipping costs your worried about..get a group order together to split shipping costs. I remember years ago when GW figures were barely available in the USA a group of us use to place monthly orders to GW UK, by the time we split the shipping costs it wasn\'t that bad.

    Ive also ordered extras with the intention of selling them myself of sources like ebay.. trust me if its hard for you to get it its harder for someone else.

    I\'m a fan of The War Store especially for some of my larger orders as they have a good discount and flat rate shipping.
