Anyone have any commo with Cinc/PFC ? Anyone buy anything from them lately ?

TheWhiteDog15 Dec 2016 8:59 a.m. PST

Ordered some 1/4800 ships back in August, but that's the most recent order for me. Took about two weeks from when I ordered, and never received a shipment notification. They just showed up!

Having an issue?

Legion 415 Dec 2016 9:32 a.m. PST

Thanks for that ! Seems they don't answer emails ?

Logain15 Dec 2016 9:46 a.m. PST

I've had bad luck with commo with them, and orders that take so long that I become certain it will never arrive….but they always do. Excellent product and price, not so good service.

Legion 415 Dec 2016 10:42 a.m. PST

That is the general situation … sadly …

GamingAddict15 Dec 2016 1:43 p.m. PST

I have noticed that Wargames Emporium stocks are low on CinC miniatures with no Solar Marines.

They do not respond to e mails but I have ordered from them many times and I always get my figures, usually in about 30 days.

CVA31bhr Inactive Member16 Dec 2016 6:08 a.m. PST

Ditto about slow to arrive orders. Sent them an email earlier this week as a TBF Avenger I ordered arrived minus the wings. Hopefully I'll get a replacement set of wings for it, but haven't heard a peep out of them.

paulgenna Supporting Member of TMP16 Dec 2016 5:15 p.m. PST

I have ordered a fair number of times and always gotten the items in 30 days. It could be Randy is working mainly on the weekends filling the orders.

pericles311 Inactive Member01 Jan 2017 3:30 p.m. PST

Yes, Randy's fulfillment time is slow. I find that I get an email response about 50% of the time. It is more likely if it has been weeks since the order was placed. Really good price, excellent casting quality, good variety. A number of the miniatures really are tiny models with lots of fiddly bits.

Legion 401 Jan 2017 3:50 p.m. PST

Well seems we finally did get an email. Thanks for all the replies guys. But it was months since we had heard and all email went unanswered until recently … grin

Iain Skinner Inactive Member04 Jan 2017 4:48 p.m. PST

I ordered a bunch of the Solar Marine a few days ago. Took them like 4 days to take my money, and no reply to email. But this thread is heartening.

A lot of these smaller companies don't do the email thing very well. I'll take no response over the response I've gotten from some small companies for having the audacity to ask about an order I paid for.

Legion 405 Jan 2017 8:09 a.m. PST

Yes, as noted, CinC/PFC is v-e-r-y slow in doing any business. But as many have said, you'll get your stuff … eventually. I'm an e-friend of the SEM lines owner. So I usually get intel and more when new SEM is coming ad/or comes available first.

But sometimes both he and I are in "dead-zone" when it comes to replies/etc., directly from CinC/PFC … So we all just have to wait, it seems. Better late than never. But anyone who has anything to add about CinC/PFC please feel free to post here.

I think CinC/PFC is a good example of "Good things come to those who wait …" wink

Another situation I find is with Khurasan. He posted pics of 6mm Jasmine Throne aliens about a year or more ago. But still no joy. And he never replies to my e-mails. frown

Iain Skinner Inactive Member08 Jan 2017 8:19 p.m. PST

Interesting about Khurasan, I ordered some vehicles from them to go with my Solar Marines and he sent me a nice email right away.

Iain Skinner Inactive Member09 Jan 2017 1:44 p.m. PST

Got an email back from Randy today. So he is still out there filling orders and reading emails.

Legion 409 Jan 2017 3:17 p.m. PST

Khurasan must not like me … frown Ask him when he's going to release 6mm Jasmine Throne Aliens … But don't say I'm asking ! huh? evil grin

Iain Skinner Inactive Member12 Jan 2017 11:54 p.m. PST

Received my order from Khurasan already. 8 days after I ordered them. Very impressive.

Legion 413 Jan 2017 8:36 a.m. PST

But they still have not released 6mm Jasmine Throne … frown

(Major Disaster) Inactive Member13 Jan 2017 10:10 a.m. PST

@ Legion 4

Don't hold your breath waiting on those. They might be released by the time mankind has a permanent base on Mars. Khurasan has a penchant for teasing cool things then never following through with releasing them. Still waiting on the not-S:AAB Chigs and the not-Soldier armored vehicle. Won't buy another thing from him until those are released.

Legion 413 Jan 2017 3:31 p.m. PST

That is the only thing I want from Khurasan … So yes, I won't be buying anything until 6mm Jasmine Throne is released, if ever. He even had a gent paint them up and post pics on Tac Cmd. frown

Iain Skinner Inactive Member13 Jan 2017 4:08 p.m. PST

You guys might be taking things a little too seriously lol. It's toy soldiers.

Legion 414 Jan 2017 8:16 a.m. PST

Yes … note the emojis … frown huh? etc., … those are my signal that I'm Not taking my posts too seriously … evil grin wink

And as a sidebar it still amazes all the controversy, derision, vitriol, etc., that many comments generates … on a site about "adults(?)" playing with toys … huh?


* I'm not talking about this post or even this board, but on other boards here. frown

Iain Skinner Inactive Member24 Jan 2017 3:12 p.m. PST

Got my CinC order today. Ordered it over the XMas break so I knew there would be a little delay. Took a bit over 3 weeks which isn't bad.

He did include a note that I assume he is putting in all orders now:

New weekly schedule:
Mon – pull orders
Tues – fill orders
Wed – production for orders
Thurs – production to build inventory
Fri to Sunday – design work and other misc work

Orders placed Monday by noon are shipped by next Monday provided there's no issues.

All this is paraphrased of course.

Legion 424 Jan 2017 3:35 p.m. PST

Good to know ! Thanks !

Hazza31B31 Jan 2017 9:43 p.m. PST

Glad i found this post. Cheers

Shilka Inactive Member10 Feb 2017 4:02 p.m. PST

I have always had very good dealings with Randy, and his models are great.

Most recently I placed an order late on Friday January 27th for (27) AFV's and it shipped Saturday February 4th.

Never an issue with communication, and attentive to detail.

Hazza31B10 Feb 2017 11:31 p.m. PST

Did you get shipping confirmation?
I placed an order on 25/1 and have heard nothing since.

Shilka Inactive Member11 Feb 2017 5:32 a.m. PST

Nope, but I didn't need one. You might try asking directly.

Hazza31B11 Feb 2017 5:39 p.m. PST

I did to no avail. Ill give it a few more weeks and see. Cheers

Hazza31B13 Feb 2017 2:32 a.m. PST

Arrived today. Yay!!!

Legion 413 Feb 2017 8:06 a.m. PST

thumbs up

Iain Skinner Inactive Member13 Feb 2017 2:20 p.m. PST

Did a little video reviewing the CinC stuff, some Khurasan stuff and some Microworld stuff.

YouTube link

Using them for a game I'm working on:

Here's the first couple of batreps from our beta testing.

Got another batrep I'll be posting in the next couple of days where I also review some Scotia Grendel stuff.

Legion 414 Feb 2017 7:57 a.m. PST

I highly recommend CinC and Microworld …thumbs up

I and some of my buddies would like to buy some Khurasan 6mm Jasmine Throne. But for a few years now, they have not been released, as promised. And no answers to our emails … So I've got nothing to really say about Khurasan …either way. frown

And not really a fan of Scotia Grendel. But they are not bad for the price …

Templar207 Jan 2018 12:25 p.m. PST

PFC CinC website seems to be down, have any of you made and received an order recently

Thanks

Templar2

Legion 407 Jan 2018 5:10 p.m. PST

I went to the site just now … it's there … pfc-cinc.com/front_page.html

Can't tell anymore than that though …

Templar207 Jan 2018 6:57 p.m. PST

Back for me also.

Thanks L4

ScoutJock07 Jan 2018 9:33 p.m. PST

Ordered some stuff from them in early December and received it right before Christmas. They left a couple of items out but said they will make it right.

TheWhiteDog08 Jan 2018 7:32 a.m. PST

Ordered some more 1/4800 a week ago, so I'll let you know if/when they get here.

Legion 408 Jan 2018 2:36 p.m. PST

Glad to help Templar ! thumbs up

TheWhiteDog18 Jan 2018 11:03 p.m. PST

Arrived today, so a little over two weeks. Everything looks just as good as always!

ScoutJock19 Jan 2018 7:39 a.m. PST

They made my order whole this past week as well.

Thanks CinC

Legion 419 Jan 2018 8:39 a.m. PST

Good to know guys !

PVT64124 Jan 2018 9:50 a.m. PST

Ordered 12/31/17. Delivered 1/22/18 in upstate NY.

Legion 424 Jan 2018 2:57 p.m. PST

Thank ! thumbs up

williamb24 Jan 2018 5:35 p.m. PST

They also respond to email. Had a question about their products and was answered the following day.

Legion 425 Jan 2018 8:36 a.m. PST

One of my e-pals & I have not had that experience … frown
