PLEASE NOTE: As stated on the front page of the site, I am still trying to clear the decks of as many of the Kickstarter pledges as I can, the recipients of which have been waiting at least a year for their stuff to come through. Your regualr order will be shipped as soon as possible in between all the resin casting I have to do!
Also note: Orders are delayed due to Salute! The annual miniatures show that I have been working every day to prepare for since January. The workload is too much this week and orders will be shipping from Monday the 24th of April. Sorry for the delay!
If you are telephoning us, please be aware that due to an overwhelming deluge of fraudulent calls from people pretending to be officials, trying to switch our electric, or sell us IT or suchlike, we are screening all calls. Simply stay on the line whilst the answerphone message plays and start talking when you get the chance so that we can hear you aren't yet another salesperson but an actual customer we need to talk to! Sorry about this...it's a curse of the modern age.
Salute preparations are delaying orders due to the sheer work involved. That is why the Sale offers are on, to compensate you for the delays. If you are concerned that you are missing a parcel, please bear the following in mind:
1) If you didn't pay for tracking and insurance, there's not a lot we can do to trace your order. Always pay for tracking - we even throw in an extra figure or two to offset the extra cost!
2) Most orders arrive eventually once posted. The current worst country for delivering non-express untracked parcels is apparently the USA, where parcels seem to arrive at a random length of time between one week and five weeks (the worst I've heard lately is two months!). This is totally out of our control and is entirely to do with the US postal service. The best thing to do to avoid this is to pay for Airsure shipping, which provides tracking, insurance if your parcel gets lost, and also cuts the delivery time from '7 to 12' workings days down to '5 to 7' working days. If you choose regular airmail or free shipping, you don't get tracking and you can't get a replacement parcel, normally.
3) Also, if you are expecting a parcel, and it should have arrived by now, eg overseas within three weeks, then PLEASE check with your local post office as they may be holding it for you and have failed to let you know this. Or perhaps they've left it in a safe place, or with a neighbour, or someone else in the house received it on your behalf and never mentioned it. All of these things happen a lot, you'd be amazed. Also, in the UK the posties aren't above leaving things in the wheelie bins thinking they'd be safe and you'd spot them. More often than you'd think, truly...
4) If you've tried asking the post office and all the rest of it and you still think it's gone missing, then do let us know using the contact form below.
5) All orders will be shipped in order of receipt, so if you're 100 in the queue, it may take a day or two to get to yours. Your order status will be updated from 'Paid For, Awaiting Packing' to 'Shipped' when it ships!
6) I say 'we' I mean, 'I' there's currently only me working here, I don't have some mighty mail order department toiling away at all hours, just me trying to do everything, so do bear with me. Thus, I have reduced th enumber of shipping days to Tuesday and Friday each week so that I can get all teh casting done. Sorry for any delays! - Andy Foster

Andy Foster (the boss of Heresy Miniatures and sculptor of most of the range) is on Twitter. He rather likes it. It's a great way of doing micro-updates that don't really deserve a big newsletter hit or Forum announcement. And you can stalk celebrities! We know most Wargamers are luddites when it comes to technology but the times they are a-changing and Twitter is the new hotness in keeping people informed. Andy does tend to twitter about whatever's on his mind be that Heresy related or not, so it's a very informal channel of communications!
We have several Twitter accounts according to your taste!
