Maelstrom Games are apparently in financial difficulty and are having to sell off their stocks of models at 70% off to clear their debts. What that means for you, is that you can drop buy their webstore, purchase your Timeline 300 models *cheaper than it costs us to produce them!* and then just pop onto our own webstore to get your new plastic bases. :-)

Use promo code: FINAL-FINAL-STOCK-SALE

Seriously, 70% off, this is a one of a kind crazy sale, if you were thinking of starting T:300 this'd be a great moment!

Are you planning on buying them back from them for future orders?

Seriously considering it!
If we weren't currently having 4 new metal moulds created I'd have bought them all back already!

The sale lasts until Monday I think, and if anything is remaining then we'll probably buy whatever's left back from them.

Problem is that people are not getting their orders from them (me including). I already have orders not received and I ordered in stock items. No answering to emails or calls so I would suggest being cautious about buying from them.

I use these guys alot, i have the chaos codex on order, hope i get it, i did get some items this week, so fingers crossed.

Do you think they will fold? This does seem to be a panic cash generator sale.

The Maelstrom issue has been ongoing for a while now, with a variety of rumours and stories of pretty poor customer services. And then there is this site:

I would be very cautious about buying from them generally. I am not going to judge or offern an opinion, but this is interesting too:

All that said, spending £12 to get £40 of miniatures may well be worth the risk!

Someone certainly agrees with you - two thirds of the T300 models they've been holding went out of stock today!

If it was people on here, welcome to T:300. :-)

I wouldn't worry too much about company checks. Mongoose Publishing and Dark Realm Miniatures both reported losses but they aren't showing any signs of going bust. It could just be tax efficiency.

You don't get to see turnover on there, so it's not an great way of judging a companies health.
