Black Hat Miniatures

Black Hat Miniatures is re-releasing the Unfeasibly Miniatures Exotic Adventures range of miniatures, perfect for some historical or pulp action.


From the announcement:

We are very pleased to say that we are now producing the Unfeasibly Miniatures 28mm Exotic Adventures Range under license.

The range depicts the French Foreign Legion at the turn of the 19th Century in Northern Africa, immortalised in the stories of Beau Geste by P.C. Wren. The range includes Tauregs, who resisted the French colonial invasion of their Central Saharan homelands.
We have two more packs of Legionnaires with improvised weapons which will be released as soon as production moulds have been made.

Mark at Unfeasibly has plans to expand on the range to add mounted troops.

Black Hat Miniatures is offering free shipping on all UK orders for paint during the month of December.


From the announcement:

We are offering free shipping on all UK paint orders of 20 or more Coat D'arms paints during December. This can include 2 paint sets for just £35.GBP

(Unfortunately there will be a small surcharge for Northern Ireland and the Islands)

All orders will be sent by Parcelforce or courier so this is your chance to stock up on paint without Royal mail shipping problems…

Black Hat Miniatures has posted their updated policy for shipping paint in lieu of the new rules for the Royal Mail.


From the announcement:

Royal Mail rules on sending water-based paints have changed and no more than four containers of up to 150ml each can be sent in one parcel, whether in the UK or internationally.

That means we must break down orders for paints into groups of four and send each group separately in order to comply with the law. The shipping charges have been changed to allow you to select Royal Mail shipping for 4 pots or less. This applies in the Uk or internationally.

In the UK for more than 4 pots please select 5-8 pots UK (which will be sent in two parcels) or UK Courier.
