2 WEEKS OF HELL
Salute is upon us, and there's no way I can get everything (possibly anything) done unless I ignore the orders from now until after the show. So unfortunately, due to the immense workload, I am now not posting any orders out from Thursday 27th until April 15th 2014 at which point I'll have to catch up on the backlog. Man alive, how do I have so much work and yet no money to pay myself? It's daft.
Follow me on Twitter, Facebook etc for news of all the things I'm working on (large/bulky resin things for the most part) and when orders start shipping again...
If you're coming to the show, (April 12th London Excel Docklands), I have prepared a handy map to get you to the Heresy stand, for which I have adopted the attitude that certain big miniatures companies have towards the existence of us tiny independent ones:
PS Shipped four dragons last week, more of thsoe after Salute too. Make sure I have your most recent email address to contact you with if you're in the queue!
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE DRAGONS THIS YEAR
For those blissfully unaware, the Dragon has been a millstone around Heresy's neck in the swimming pool of business for the last three or four years, due to to constant problems firstly with finishing the damn thing and then with getting production castings of it meaning that every time I made a promise it ended up being broken due to lack of Dragons to send out. This ended up with 170 people waiting for a Dragon at the point of time in writing.
The only way to fix this was to invest in the equipment and practice of casting the beast in resin myself, which I undertook to start in August 2013 and I have recently finally successfully cast the piece that was causing most problems - the torso, with spines fixed in place (after several re-modellings and faield attempts). This means the rest of the dragon is now just a matter of moulding and casting. Because I am a one-man business these days, this means that to take the time to make the moulds and cast dragons I have to take time away from packing the regular orders.
THIS MEANS YOUR ORDER MIGHT GET DELAYED BY A FEW DAYS.
But look at it this way, you won't have been waiting four years to get your frigging Dragon, like the people who have. I apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused in the intitial stages of this Dragon rescue operation that results in delays to your own non-Dragon orders. Once all the moulds are made and casting is a regular thing that I don't have to even think about it anymore because it's as natural to me as casting metal figures, there shouldn't be very much impact on the regular orders at all.
Until then, I'll keep the 20% discount in play so at least you're being compensated for any delays!
Please note, if you choose Recorded Delivery, Special Delivery, Airsure or International Signed For as your shipping options, that doesn't mean you get your order packed faster, unfortunately (unless you email me and tell me it's for some ultra urgent occasion) - but it does mean that once it IS shipped, it will arrive faster (except Recorded Delivery, that's still only as fast as Royal Mail's First Class service pretends to be)
All the best
Heresy Miniatures Ltd
PS When you place an order, you can check your customer account online to see if it has shipped yet - I will update the order status from "Paid For, Awaiting Packing" to "Shipped" when it has. Please allow some extra time due to the delays!
17th January 2014: SALE STILL STILL ON!
I have in fact caught up with the backlog of orders from the Christmas break, but now I have to take another week off to pay proper attention to the Dragon moulds again. Been ages since I've had the opportunity and money to try a new mould, so I'm doing that next week. I was doing this once a month or so before the Christmas gauntlet period began, and have been itching to get back to it. So with Salute fast approaching (12 weeks today until the big show!) I have one last chance to take a week to do Dragon stuff before I have to then spend my time casting stock of everything else, to take to the show...
So in summary: NO ORDERS SHIPPING THIS NEXT WEEK but you still get 20% off on any miniatures you order during this time.
6th January 2014: SALE STILL ON!
I'm back at work, there's a big pile of orders to get through, so until I've caught up I'm extending the 20% sale offer! I'll let you know nearer the time when it will now end! I suspect there's a good three or maybe four weeks of catching up to do... please bear with me whilst I work my way to your order, there's only one of me...
Happy New Year!
