Hello all. We are back from Chicago and we are sorting things out. Above is part of our massive display we had on Sunday. Overall the show was a success. Things improved after last year and we all had a blast. It is always great to sit with customers, collectors and manufacturers from around the world. People came from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, England, France and Mexico that I know of. Of course we had a 1050 mile drive too. Anyways below is a quick overview of some new stuff a I will do a follow shortly with more information. We have been talking with some new sources and we hop to bring in some new brands and paint lines in the shop. We just received a huge shipment from Battlefoam so we have some great bags in stock for your miniatures. See some it below! Thursday Gaming....stop by and join the big group of Magic Players. We also usually have some table top games going. We are expecting several people for A Song of Ice and Fire tonight and lately we have had some Crisis Protocal action. We expect Dave Valentine to come down November 12 to run his game "Devil's in the Wilderness." We may just go ahead and turn it into another Gamesday.

September is here and the kids are mostly back in school! The shop continues to be busy with a steady stream of regulars, summer tourists passing through and new comers. We just received the new Magic card set that will go on sale this weekend. The new August releases from John Jenkins and King and Country have arrived. Team Miniature have announced that the Mounted Indians will finally be here this month. Most of our partners over in Hong Kong are having major supply chain issues out of China. We have seen many delays and smaller amounts of product. This is happening with so many things we sell at the moment it has been a rough Summer getting product! We are starting to gear up for the Chicago show. We leave in about 3 weeks. This is always a great show to buy, search and socialize at.I am trying to get some great proucts in for the show and also trying to grab some collections.We buy collections so if you want to sell shoot us an email. We briefly had a Website Payment Portal Issue. We Have it back up and running now. At some point we will briefly overhaul it again.

August is wrapping up and the kids are heading back to school! The shop continues to be busy with a steady stream of regulars, summer tourists passing through and new comers. We just received a surprising huge restock of Games Workshop and a pile of games and miniatures from of distributors last Friday. The new August releases from John Jenkins and King and Country have arrived. Most of our partners over in Hong Kong are having major supply chain issues out of China. We have seen many delays and smaller amounts of product. This is happening with so many things we sell at the moment it has been a rough Summer getting product! I made it back from Florida and St. Augustine. I was able to see some of Savannah, GA on the way down and took in many sites during my trip. The Castillo de San Marco was quite impressive and it is the oldest fort in America. There is so much history in the area and I had no idea (Spanish, English, Indian, African-American). I visited the Lightner Museum which was a former hotel built by Henry Flagler and I also managed to walk by a house that MLK stayed in. Above is a great repaint of an older King and Country M-10 by Alex Credidio. It was originally painted as a French tank. The figure is still available and is made by W.Britains. We have several figures like it in stock.
