The Future of Old School Miniatures
24 January 2023
Like a human walking into a Robo-Pub, small businesses have taken an absolute kicking.
Without sounding too whiny, materials, labour, and those fancy chocolates wrapped in gold foil, have all gone up in price.
BUT, here's the thing- Old school Miniatures is not about wringing every last penny out of our customers. Not like some (workshops we could mention, if you get my drift...) it's about making brilliant, Old School models that you and us both love!
However, we do need to keep the lights on, so we need to make a couple of changes:
Bascially the commission KS takes was putting a squeeze on our pockets- and we'd rather have more money to spend commissioning new sculpts. So for the time being at least, no more Kickstarters. We are going to instead get the word out on this blog, our newsletter, and social media.
PREORDERS WILL BE SENT THE FOLLOWING MONTH, AT 20% OFF RRP
The best way to grab something new is to get on board with the preorders. You'll need to be patient, but you'll be getting them fresh out of the mould!
NO MORE SALES
We will be keeping our prices as low as possible, but for the time being we aren't doing any more sales. But....
5% OFF ALL £100+ ORDERS!
That's right! Rather than waiting till a sale comes along, you can just get your minis now, and at a discount to boot! Not too shabby...
What's that? You want more? How about 7.5% at £200.00, 10% at £250.00,12.5% at £300.00,15% at £400.00 and a meaty 20% off all orders of £500.00 or more of any products!
FREE POSTAGE ON HOLD
Sorry. After we realised we were making a loss on some orders, we have had to stop this for the time being.
BIG MODELS ARE GOING DOWN IN PRICE!
That's right! I'm not entirely sure why (Jamie swore a pact to an Unspeakable god of Something or Other), but we are going to be lowering the price for some of the big guys.
So Dragons, Giants, all those fellas will be cheaper to buy.
Hopefully, with less Kickstarter admin, sales headache etc, we will have more time to devote to sculpting, making and posting out Old School wargaming and roleplaying models.
As always, we are incredibly grateful to you, and all our awesome customers.*
Thank you once again, and we can't wait till the store is up and running.
*To be honest, we're also grateful to the not-awesome customers as well- their money is as good as anyone else's!
