Hobby Bunker Covert Intelligence

  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.

 

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.

When we are done we will give you more options like googlepay and applepay and paying instantly with paypal.
