    Yep, Salute's round the corner so Arty's open (sounds like it might be permanent this time)

    It would be a full-on grand re-opening except it’s taken about 2 months and about 3 dozen screw-ups to get to the opening part and we’re heading straight into the biggest show of the year so undoubtedly it’s going to be a big old mess :)

    Yes we’re back, again. Over the years the more astute observer (that is, anyone with eyes) will have noticed we’ve closed for various amounts of time at seemingly a moment’s notice. This newest closure has been almost a year.

    During the years I’ve seen a lot of speculation on forums and the like about why that is, most guessing that I had another job or was in some way a serial offender in and out of prison. I’m hoping the latter was in jest.

    The truth is I did have another responsibility but it was a person not a job. Last year that person passed away and I did not take it well, hence the longest closure to date.

    As the cliche goes, time heals all wounds – or at least makes them a little easier to bear – so we’re open again. I can’t quite bring myself to say the words ‘silver lining’ and mean them but with no outside responsibilities there should be no more closures.

    By the time this ad goes live everything should be up and running on the old site (Work is well underway on a new and slightly more modern site). We have all of our old lines, including a few that have closed up shop during our closures so lots of suddenly OOP minis there. We’ve also jumped right back in and added a bunch of new lines right off the bat so please take a new look at the old place.

    Thanks :)

    Some older stuff (as well new stock) on his site - finally got me a Eolith Frankie
    Oooh. That's a BINGO!
    This is grapeshot. This is what it does.

      Nice to see him back again, hope he has the Dragonblood minis at Salute as he has a few of the line I want to pick up now they are dying off.

        I seem to remember another WAMPer who was after a Dragonblood piece, I'll give him a nudge.

          Yeah I got the nudge, nearly knocked me off my chair

          Can't remember the company you pointed me to Bill but I got what I wanted and they did a good service as well, casting of the piece was good as well, it's nice to see some of the stuff coming back in a s they were very good pieces.

          Arty is up the road in the Valley's so I never used to venture up there for a few reasons but did use his web service a few times

            Glad to hear you're sorted.

              Thanks people, appreciate the welcome back.

              Dragonblood has been sent from the states over a week ago, so anything we don't have I'm hoping arrives before the show. If not it'll arrive soon enough. We're also going to get in touch with Dark Sword to get in the few Dragonblood pieces they bought (and probably start stocking Dark Sword itself while we're at it)

              Some of the OOP stuff is flying out and might not even make Salute. The last one of 2 codes have gone to 2 of the people in this thread actually :)

                Thanks for that Darksword postage has always been a bone of contention for me when ordering direct from them.
