I'd like to see goblins given thier due.  Set up as thier own force without big stupid orcs kicking them around.  A race apart from orcs not as some slave/distant genetic relation/cannon fodder group.

But this isn't a suggestion thread.  This is a 'hey, need to generate more sales or there could be trouble, just letting you know' thread.

Perhaps some orcs to go with the goblins.

Perhaps some goblins to go with the goblins first! But orcs are planned. They were supposed to be done before the goblins, in fact. But I liked the goblins more.

But this is the Forum of Doom - the whole place is 'Off Topic' :P

Well, yes, but they're so far into the future that I'd rather not say yes too emphatically and get everyone all excited for something that might not happen for yonks. Lots to do before that point!

I put in a small order for a Ghoul King and the Dark Brethren, always have fancied those models.

I hope things sort themselves out soon for you. :lalala:

Hey Andy...I know they won't be a priority for you, but I read rumours you were attempting to sculpt Sontarans.....I'd gladly buy a dozen of those from you (You know my love of those spudheads).

I've seen some partially completed greens - wonderful! I'd buy 'em in a heartbeat.

15 mm is only popular with a very vocal subset on TMP.

Look at what sells the best for you and do more of them. The dragon has been an enormous resource sink. Try and avoid that again.

Are the gangers selling well? Do more "not"Necro gangs. Ash wastes and high tech van saar would be great. Hürn selling well? Do more. Try and exploit your strengths rather than trying to diversify into ranges which are another stab in the dark.

 :metoo:

On a different topic, if you were ever to go with plastics (I know I know they cost a huge amount to set up) I think you would be onto a winner with the goblins. If people are buying goblins they generally need to buy tonnes of them, and if you had a sprue that could double as archers and close combat then they might sell well. I'd buy quite a lot of them. Just a thought (probably put you in more debt though  :shock:)

Well this thread prompted me to finally order in the Tunnel Guard with slugs. Always loved those figures. In fact, I utterly adore all your "dark fantasy" stuff and am doing an entire project with it. Expect more business. I hope things pick up soon!

A better organised online store would help.
- The ton of banners and the massive pre-orders link, as well as everything from 'Special Requests' downwards really do not need to be on every page.
- The model images are too small to really tell what the figure looks like when scrolling through a page.

These things may not be a problem for die-hard Heresy fans, but for the casual buyer they are really off-putting.


Personally I doubt I'll be placing an order until I get my dragon.
