Moving forward in 2015

Posted by James on Tuesday, January 6, 2015,
In 2011 we bought the Barbarian on Warcat figure from Kevin who was unable to move forward with bringing it into production. This month he contact me and asked if I would consider selling it back to him. I felt that if anyone should have it the one who originally commissioned it to be sculpted should be the one to have it. So we made a deal for the molds and the right to the miniature transferred over to him this last week.

Anyone who is interested in buying copies of the miniature should cont...

The best laid plans of mice and gamer's.

Posted by James on Monday, October 13, 2014,
Well molds have had to be put on hold for a bit, I have been forced to spend money on a full roof replacement for the shop instead. So hopefully I can get back to finishing production molds before the end of the year.

We are still in need of materials for the next issue of Playgames magazine. The first issue was downloaded over 200 times which I think is an amazing accomplishment for a first time publication. So please send up anything gaming/hobby related for the next issue which will be publ...

Our new store is now open

Posted by James on Friday, April 6, 2012,
We have a new shopping cart that is posted in the store instead of being redirected to Vendio. This one seems to work better then it ever did, but it still has its draw backs. Please let me know if you have any problems with checkout on the new store or if you do not get an order confirmation.

The Vendio cart is finally fixed

Posted by James on Saturday, September 3, 2011,
Finally after 4 months the programmers have bothered to find out what went wrong with the shipping service changes that occurred in April. I guess I can't say much else as I only got 2/3 of the way through moving everything to a new cart provider in that time.

To many things have barged there way into daily life here this year and nothing at all has gotten done. I didn't get any of the goals I set out in January even started.

I did get the Amazons and the Wolfen into the Mighty Armies Rules, th...

goals for 2011

Posted by James on Friday, February 11, 2011,
Now with the economy picking back up again I am looking to do some new things for the company this year. I have purchased a few more sculpts from Whiffwaff, they should be available this summer for release.

I have some terrain projects planned as well as other sculpts that I want to release this year.

Preparing the miniatures for retail store sales is also top of my list this year.

The final thing I want to get done is some army lists for Rebel mini's Mighty Armies game system.

Sometimes miracles do still happen...

Posted by James on Sunday, January 17, 2010,
This month were launching a new line of products for us here at Lone Gunman Games. I say new for "us" as 6 of these figures were briefly availible in early 2003 from another company, more on this in a moment.

The new line is a 28MM modern themed line of miniatures called collectively Modern Heroes. They are suitable for modern, Cyberpunk, Post Apoc, and other near future game settings. Full information on the line can be found on there dedicated products page. The manufacturer's suggested reta...

Things are finally moving forward again...

Posted by James on Sunday, January 17, 2010,
After a much to long pause (my other companies required my attention) things are finally moving forward again for Lone gunman games. I have given the website a major overhaul by adding pages for the new lines of miniatures, updating the site graphics to correspond to the new retail packaging that was designed by our good friend Wyatt the Odd that will be printed this year.

I have also due to customer demand added the dimensions to the 15MM lines so that the size of the figures can be compared...

The Armies of Arcana 5th edition Rule books are in....

Posted by James on Wednesday, November 4, 2009,

Everything about launching the new company has taken longer then I had planned. That includes stocking the Armies of Arcana 5th edition rule book by Terrain Warehouse (uk).

They are now in the store and availible for sale. I am having problems with the webstore cart though. The system does not recognize that the US postal service has flat rate envelopes availible, so I will need to issue refunds on these orders to correct the overpayments on shipping.

I am going to be heading the US push to pr...

The Starting of a new era in 15MM miniatures.

Posted by James on Tuesday, June 9, 2009,
Today I got a packet of samples from the greens I sent to the caster. The greens were sculpted by WhiffWaff with a lot of detail for 15MM. These are the pics I took with my digital camera of the masters that will make up the production molds for the new "Lords of Fantasy" line that I will be launching with these 5 new sculpts.

I am taking pre-orders now for these to help with the initial costs of production. Pre-order packs will be in lots of 6 figures for all but the wizard who can be ordered...

The end of an era Thanesgames.com to close

Posted by James on Sunday, May 31, 2009,
I got an e-mail from Thane this week that he is letting the hosting subscription to his Armies of Arcana website expire this next month distancing himself even further from the game he created then he is already.

After selling the rules to Terrain Warehouse and the 15MM miniatures line to me I guess he must feel there is no where else for him to take the setting and the rules system that he created.

His creativity and imput will be sorely missed. We wish him the best in this new path he has cho...

Posted by James on Sunday, April 19, 2009,
Well I finally got an e-mail from my new caster that he has the molds for the Armies of Arcana line now and that means that all the casting costs can be revised for the processing of the cart. Now I just need to figure out how to do a cart with the free apps in paypal and google checkout.
