I know it has been sometime since my last post, but I was kicked out of my stupor after finding out that one of my favourite miniature companies was under severe financial duress. I am talking about Heresy Miniatures.
I have bought from Heresy Miniatures several times during the years, mostly the barbarians and fantasy football stuff, and I cannot claim to be a regular customer, but yesterday I decided to make another order after reading Andy's blog entry.
I have always dreamed of making a living by opening up my own miniatures company - something small like Heresy, but I never had the courage to take that leap. So it saddens me to no end to hear that someone who has tried, is now in financial troubles after 10 years of business and excellent service.
To make matters worse, Andy posted an entry on his blog about how difficult his situation is. I will not even try to explain, since I have never been in his financial position, so I will let the chap speak for himself.
I have taken the liberty to post this from the Heresy Blog, and I apologize for not asking permission, but I did it for one purpose and only one.
To urge the gaming and miniature modelling community to help one of our own!
So if you have some cash to spare go to Heresy Miniatures and buy something small or buy a lot. Let us help keep this company afloat. If you want a tip, take a look at Heresy's ghouls - they are little gems!
That is all for now. I hope you find it in your hearts and pockets to help Andy and his great little company out.
Until then farewell and good health - to you especially Andy!
