Spyglass Miniatures is closed...

As another aside from my normal rambling about general minis industry shenanigans, I thought this was a good place to make the announcement that I have now closed Spyglass Miniatures (and Eolith was, of course, already closed).

It's not all doom and gloom though (certainly not for me as I'm moving on to other things) as I can tell you that various interested parties have taken on the rights to my figures and pretty much everything has found a new home over the last week or so (did I tell anyone that it's been a mad week). The parties in question will, I'm sure, make their announcements as and when they feel ready to do so. Right at the moment I'm in the process of pulling everything together and getting the relevant bits to their new owners...

Well, it's been a blast. I wont miss doing mail orders I will have to admit. Having just the one Post Office in Truro was no laughing matter. The fact that it was basically impossible to do a mailing run on a Monday (pension day) should say it all. That said I've enjoyed being able to sculpt all manner of weird and wonderful things over the years.

And I really have to paint 54mm Dracula sometime...

  3. Luckily I was able to order at least one of your wonderful works before all of this rumble. Great to hear that your line of miniatures has found another home!

  6. Doh... and I never got a chance to buy anything of yours. Blame it on the excellent selection available to painters these days, I guess ;)

    But yes, fighting geezers to get to the postal wicket probably isn't many people's cup of tea.
