After our extended break over the summer, it is with heavy heart, that I am announcing the closure of Lurkio. The reasons for this are manyfold, but primarily a change in personal circumstances means will I not not have the time to devote to running the store and provide the service that is expected. My commitments are now to look after my family, and Lurkio is unfortunately just too much effort for me to continue with.

Lurkio has been running for just over 10 years now. Starting with the Sassanid Persians to over a dozen ranges now – including some that never saw the light of day :-( Over those 10 years I have met a lot of new friends, and I thank you all for your support over this time. I hope that the ranges we have brought to light do not fade away, and I am looking to find someone to take over the ownership of Lurkio. I will leave the store running in browse mode while i try to find a buyer, or at least liquidate the stock.

If you , or know anyone, that might be interested in purchasing Lurkio , then please do drop me a line at

Until then many thanks for all of your support over the years and good luck to you all.

Sad. Made some very nice figures.

Family is more important; I wish you all the best for the future. Good luck.

That is sad. I hope that somebody will pick up, manufacture, and sell from the ranges soon. Best wishes!
