News and Important updates!
Hi all, here’s an update with what’s happening going into 2017.
First of all please note we are still closed until the new year, we’ll start processing orders again on the 1st but due to bank holidays etc these might not ship until a few days in.
2016 has been a hugely busy year for us so thanks to all our customers and retailers! Our main focus has been working on the upcoming Tombstone project. I know everyone is waiting for updates on this, I anticipate starting to show the models in January one faction at a time, roughly a week apart, along with scenic shots and more information about the project and game. Looking at a launch date somewhere in March currently. The current new model count is 110 I believe… With the book available in English, Spanish, French, German and we hope Italian to follow.
We’re very proud of the quality we offer at the prices we do, regularly at shows people are surprised that the price shown is per pack when a £9 plus single miniature is common place elsewhere. For a few years we’ve tried to intentionally keep the business small, mainly by restricting trade sales. Over the last year through direct sales alone it’s become obvious that will no longer be possible.
The main upshot of this is we will be charging VAT (a government tax) on our products from January 1st 2017. UK VAT is 20% and applicable to anyone buying in the UK or EU. To soften the blow of this somewhat we’re adjusting the base price down slightly. Note this won’t affect non EU customers, when you checkout with a non applicable country vat will be deducted at checkout.
We hope you appreciate this isn’t a price rise (actually it’s a decrease) but simply a law we have to follow.
Below are the new prices from January 1st, it’s worth noting until that date the current prices stand so it’s a good time to buy! Please note shipping delays are likely early January though. Sometime on new years eve products will be unavailable whilst we update the site.
New VAT inclusive prices for UK/EU from January 1st:
singles models £4.50
Code B packs £6
Standard 4 model packs £9.30
5 model packs £11.4
Teams (11 models) £25
Many thanks for your understanding and support going into 2017!

27th September 2016. Birthday new release and offer!
Our 11th birthday was on the 22nd of September! To celebrate we're releasing a new model and also offering A FREE MODEL WITH ALL ORDERS UNTIL OCTOBER 3RD! This will be a random model, but in the comments upon check out you can specify if you prefer Tombstone or Pirates and we'll try our best to add something appropriate. Already have an order placed but not shipped? Don't worry you'll still get a free model. :)
Today we're releasing 'Rambler and Humphrey the dog'. Available in the Tombstone range for £4.00. This will be available for a limited time as it will then be part of the Tombstone kickstarter. Details on the Tombstone page to the left. An excellent addition to your Tombstone civilians!
10/September/2016. Tombstone update!
As many of you will have seen either at shows, on flyers or via our facebook page we are currently working on a huge Tombstone release for Kickstarer! We had always planned to make a rulebook for Tombstone as we had done for Cutlass. As the project developed it got bigger and bigger.. Until it was clear the entire range would be redone on quite some scale.
We'll set up a 'Tombstone' page to the left where we'll add updates as we have them. We've already shown the female gunslinger and 'incident on Grand St' for some time now. Our facebook page is a great place to see updates and ask questions.
Some basic info so far: Tombstone will be a huge release via kickstarter. It will be a skirmish rulebook, translated into Spanish French and German (we hope). There will be over 100 new models! These will be produced using the same high quality resin method we've always used, no lower quality plastics.
There will be several factions/types to choose from including: Lawmen, Outlaws, Mexicans, Natives, 7th Cavalry, Undead and female gunslingers.
We don't have a set date yet, we have a flyer with details on that says 'late 2016'.. as we keep adding more to the project early 2017 is much more likely.. but with a bit of luck everything will be ready to see before the end of the year. All the models and book will be finished before launch. There will of course be various add ons and extras etc..
We look forward to sharing more with you!
