Did You Know...?
« on: November 22, 2011, 11:18:12 AM »
...that you can leave reviews of any of the items Heresy sells on the website?

Just log in to your customer account, and then click the (currently rather bland) little icon that says 'Write A Review' on any of the product pages and you can give a five star rating and leave a comment, which might help other people decide to buy something and thus help Heresy out.

I get to approve all reviews so obviously I'm not going to let the ones saying 'this is one of the top 25 worst figures ever made ever'  :erm:  go on there, since they're clearly wrong, and I am trying to SELL the figures etc in question but all fair comments will be approved, promise

ALSO

Did you know that the old site did not have Customer Accounts on it? It just used cookies to remember you the next time you shopped - so  since a lot of people have asked me, yes, you will need to make a new account if you haven't used the new shopping cart yet! The new cart has a lot of features i haven't poked yet, but a few easy built-in ones as well like remembering your shopping cart for next time, emailing you when order statuses have been updated etc

It's not a very objective list (and never was meant as that), it's more like a silly little forum topic where everyone can post what they personaly think is a 'bad' mini + a poll. You shouldn't think/ worry too much about that.

Regarding the reviews: links to pics of conversions probably ain't allowed when the contain other manufacturers' minis?
The seperate heads are so damn versatile and usefull, I always thought it would be nice if people could post pics of what they used them for.

I was so angry at the thought of Heresy (which I've dedicated my life to in terms of good customer service, trying to supply stuff people want, etc) being associated with ANY poll that had 'Worst EVER' in it that it kept me awake until 3am that night, to be honest. And I think a lot less of the poster too. Even though I know I shouldn't and I didn't even personally sculpt that figure. Plus, I like that Wight Lord, it's Old School. I could easily find 25 figures worse than it. :grrr: Ah, pride in one's business, 'tis a cutting thing.

As to putting pics of other manufacturers stuff on my site converted with Spare Heads ,  I suspect it's just going to attract annoying and misplaced IP letters, unfortunately,if it turns out to be GW for instance.

I daresay you could describe what you've used heads on in the review section and maybe provide a link to a pic elsewhere, come to think of it?

Just realised that was what you were suggesting anyway, so yes, probably.

I have left a couple of reviews.  I put a few suggestions in there as well (no links though...didn't know if they would work or not).

You know what they say? Any publicity is good publicity.

I bet quite a number of people who did not know of Heresy now do due to that list.

Yup, and I reckon a fair number of them assume that I sell the worst figures in the world.

I'd like to think they'd take the time to check for themselves! I do try to put a positive spin on things otherwise I would have most likely walked into a lion enclosure covered in BBQ sauce years ago.  :P

You'd be amazed at what Wargamers will fail to do that logic might suggest they should have! (See also, 'What size are your 25mm round bases?')

Well I have seen stuff like that before, looked at their store to see whether it compares and have been pleasantly surprised! I'm not a fan of the wight myself but it's nowhere near the bottom 25!!

Tried a search on here but I couldn't find anything!

No, you wouldn't - it's just a question that I've been asked before in real life, along with many others you might have thought obvious...
