Hi All:

I have heard from Yuri that after their hiatus until April 30, Venexia will be closing. Yuri will be looking for a buyer for the range. In the meantime i will not be able to re-stock.

So if there are figures you want get them now!

Once the dust settles I hope to be able to re-stock from the new owners.

….as well as downloading the free 15mm flags…..:)

Hope someone buys them as they have some nice ranges there.

@ Extra Crispy – Why are they selling?

Mako1126 Apr 2012 12:36 p.m. PST

I'm very sorry to hear that, and hope someone will pick them up.

His Italian Wars renaissance figures are some of the best, if not THE BEST, in 15mm scale. It would be a shame to lose the range.

Sadly, I'm not in a position to buy more currently, but if I was, I would buy a ton of them.

@Marcus:

The usual – real life just not leaving time for the business.

Same for me. Get my stock while I've got some left – bit.ly/eV5yIs

I wonder how much it would cost to purchase a company such as Venexia? And then, to restart it in the US?

Just wondering…

Well, I've asked their price so we'll see….

^^^^Mark, that's funny. I was going to say, "Why don't you buy them?"

well my friends of Venexia are receiving several requests from other companies interested in taking their ranges, so I suppose the figures will be around for long :-)

Puster28 Apr 2012 3:55 a.m. PST

Bad news on the closing, good news on the interest for their (splendid) miniature ranges.

Personal logo vexillia Sponsoring Member of TMP30 Apr 2012 10:18 a.m. PST

For clarification: Vexillia Limited is not closing down, selling up or otherwise ceasing trading. I am selling off my stock of Venexia Miniatures.

Here's an update on my stocks of Venexia packs:

After significant sales in the past six weeks, I now have very limited stocks of the Italian Wars range. It surprises me that the Italian Wars Spanish pike have proved singularly unpopular; I still have lots in stock if little else.

The Louis XIV range has also sold well and stocks are limited. Stock levels for the Ottoman and Biblical ranges are reasonably healthy with the 28 mm Condotta and Modern ranges somewhere in between.

As a result I've decided to shift Venexia to the Clearance tab to reflect the limited availability of stock – bit.ly/NeeSpG

The shop pages are unchanged so your bookmarks are unaffected.

Here's an update on my stocks of Venexia packs:

I have only 8 packs of figures left from the Italian Wars range! Even the Spanish pike have started selling (there's still 7 packs left).

The Louis XIV range continues to sell strongly with people getting odd packs to bulk out their armies.

Everything else is pretty much the same – is.gd/fqUQWj

The Italian Wars range sold out this morning. Let's hope they reappear on the market sooner rather than later.

The new owners of the Venexia ranges have posted a progress report on TMP – bit.ly/Td9yHm

In brief they've run into problems whilst remoulding and the first range won't be available until later this year but only if things go well.

In the mean time I still have decent stocks of the 15 mm Biblical, New Kingdom Egyptian ranges plus a modest stock of the Ottomans and a final few packs from the Louis XIV range left. I also have modest stocks of the 28 mm Condotta and Modern Forces ranges.

There are stock listings online for all ranges: get them while they're hot – bit.ly/Td9DuH

Martin – If these are now clearance, could the prices also be made clearance? grin

I would buy some of the Biblical figures if the prices were clearance priced!

Important note:

Some people have confused Venexia and Vexillia because they sound similar but they are not one and the same.

I'd also like to repeat that Vexillia Limited remains a fit and healthy business. :-)

They were sold to Sgt Major Miniatures in the USA.
