We’re very much looking forward to attending ROBIN on the 17th of February. This will be the first non-Salute expo we’ve been to as a trader, so should be interesting and will directly inform decisions when it comes to other expos/fairs.
Being in Nottingham, it’ll be a great excuse for us to sneak in a cheeky Warhammer World visit!
Should have a few new things. There will be a small discount on most MCM products, and free UK shipping if we don’t have what you want in stock (MCM products only).
Once again, Master Crafted Miniatures isn’t holding a Black Friday sale. Instead, the proceeds from all 1st-party sales this Friday 23rd will be donated to charity, such as Anthony Nolan or DKMS, fighting against blood cancer and working to improve the lives of those affected.
Give blood. Whilst you’re there, get them to test you for platelet donation, as few of us have high enough platelet counts to do this. Register as a stem cell donor. You may never be called upon but, if you are, you will be saving a life.
So, if you buy anything 1st-party (i.e. non-Eden, -Maow, -Golem) through the MCM store this Friday, you’ll get yourself some stuff for our funny little hobby, and help save lives at the same time. If I have nothing you want, try to donate. But, whatever else you do, register:
A small collection of new releases, at long last. Standard pads see the addition of a unicorn design in regular and veteran rims, plus a chains rim, and a wreath design only with a veteran rim. All of these are available individually, too. Just look for the individual pads product.
A new large pad style is now available, in limited designs. All current designs can be made in this style, just use the contact form on the site to enquire. These pads are also left-side only right now. Again, if you require a right-side version, just get in contact.
I’ve got a few other things planned for the immediate future, from print-on-demand scenery by 3D Alien Worlds, to something I am currently referring to only as The Purge. Stay tuned for more news!
More magnet sizes are now in stock. The 5mm x 1mm are ideal for Games Workshop’s Adeptus Titanicus. They were thoughtful enough to include space for these magnets in the weapon mounts of their Warlord titan miniature. Space Marine was my first game, at the age of maybe 9, so I’m super-excited to find a couple of hours in which I can assemble my own!
The 5mm magnets are also available in .5mm thicknesses for tight spaces and 2mm, which are especially useful for securing heavier models on the magnetic movement trays. Make sure you glue the movement peg in if you’re sliding really heavy models around 🙂
For really big jobs, I’ve also added some 8mm x 2mm. A few of these should hold even 40K titan weapons in place!
The old N35 2mm x .5mm magnets have been replaced by some extra strong N52s, so that should be great for those of you who need to magnetise super-small miniatures. Especially useful for the weapon mounts on Dropfleet Commander’s ships.
The 2mm thick magnets are great for securing plastic miniatures to magnetic movement trays, too.
This one isn’t for sale.
At 4:38 on Tuesday morning, my wife brought our first child into the world. He’s the best. He’s just done a massive poo in his sleep and, somehow, this is awesome to me. You can only imagine how much more awesome he is when he’s not wearing a bag of poo.
For the next two weeks, I’ll be prioritising spending time with him, supporting my wife, and ensuring we all get plenty of rest when its available. This means MCM orders will be slow to go out the door. I’ll still be able to find a few minutes to fulfill them, and I won’t be closing the store; just expect things to be a lot slower than usual. Bear with me. I know you won’t mind me spending hours staring at this tiny human instead of casting parts for toy soldiers, at least for a few days.
