"Do You Guys Carry Games Workshop?" "Yes, Yes We Do!"

It's been a few months now that all of our stores have carried Games Workshop again and we still get the regular question: "Do you guys carry Games Workshop anymore?", and an even more regular occurrence is when someone comes into the store and says "You guys carry GW again?!?!". But, yes we do all carry a wide assortment of GW products again and we are going to make sure that the stock on our shelves stays fresh and updated with regularity as well as making sure that we always have the kind of things in stock that you'd need to get a brand new army off the ground. 

And all the Fantasy Shop Locations will be buying used Games Workshop Miniatures and we will be beginning a "Spare Bits" program at the Saint Charles Store. At any of the four Fantasy Shop locations you will be able to trade in your old Games Workshop Miniatures for Cash or Store Credit. Plastic Miniatures will be bought for 25 Cents a piece and Pewter Miniatures will be bought for 50 Cents a piece with larger miniatures like Tanks/Dreadnoughts/Giants and whatnot being bought for $1-$2 depending on the miniature. Those are the cash prices for the miniatures though if you want Store Credit for the miniatures you can get 30% more for your minis. And coming very soon we will have a random bits program at the Saint Charles Store! That's right there will be boxes of random bits that you can pick through and get 25 Cents a piece. But if you're looking to get rid of old beat up minis or spare bits that have been cluttering up your miniatures case, then come on in!

Space Hulk Still Available at Fantasy Shop!

Just a Portion of What Still RemainsYes it's sold out at the manufacturer. Yes it's not available from distributors any longer. Yes it's sold out almost everywhere.

But we still have copies of SPACE HULK in stock at our stores. 

A small print run of these completely amazing box sets were made by Games Workshop and if you look on eBay you'll see that the demand is high as almost all of the sold copies there have gone for well over retail price (Most often for up to $30 Over MSRP!). But your local Fantasy Shop still has it in stock, and at the original asking price of $99.00! Some might call it luck, some might call it foresight, some might call it a solemn pact with the darker forces in the world ... we just call it smart stocking. 

We knew that this was going to be the kind of item that geeks the world over were going to be excited about and that more than likely there were going to be a lot of disappointed little fanboys come Christmas day. So we decided that it would probably be in our best interest to really stock the shelves with one of the hottest and most difficult to find gaming releases of 2009 and make sure we had enough come the Holidays.

So tell your friends, loved ones, family, that when they go looking for SPACE HULK for you this Holiday season to start their search at The Fantasy Shop, they won't have to look much further!
