Just a heads up that Black Hat Miniatures has now closed and the Coat D'arms paint range has been sold to Battlezone Miniatures.

I have now retired after 20 years in the business.

Enjoy your retirement.

As I wrote early, so many companies closing.
This doesn't look good. Hopefully there are new
companies coming to replace them.

@Mike -- were all outstanding orders fulfilled (including mine)?

Happy retirement Mike, and thank you for posting me paint pots over the years

Many thanks for the messages.

Yes, all orders were completed and sent out – your bottle caps are on their way…

And Coat D'arms aren't going anywhere – they are now owned by Battlezone Miniatures – same products, same prices.

G54 it seems the backbone of the hobby are old farts like me and my friends. For the past few years, every show that I attend has a black cover table with photos of local gamers who have died.
Myself, I turn 70 this month and how much longer I can stay with it. I lost a leg last June to make it tougher.
In business since 1983.

Your War Haggis (Haggises?) are among my favourite miniatures.

Thanks for all your other contributions to the hobby too. Have a great retirement!

- Dan

Thanks Dan, the Haggi (?) were some of my favourites as well

@Mike -- received my caps yesterday. Thanks. Sorry to hear Black Hat is closing. Enjoy your retirement!

I lost a leg last June to make it tougher.

How did this happen!?
