INVENTORY: Sadly we are unable to link this WIX based website, to our in store Point of Sale equipment, so the website may show items that we do not currently have in stock, and may not show new stock that has just arrived and not been entered into the website as yet! If we receive an order that we don't have the stock on hand for, we will inform you of this, and offer to order the item in within an estimated time-frame, or offer full refund, or offer eVouchers to use in the webstore for another item(s), at your discretion. If you need to confirm stock availability before ordering, please either call the store, or email us and we will get back to you ASAP. I frequently answer emails outside of trading hours and can dial into the store to check inventory there from home.  Thanks for your understanding. 

Pricing, Loyalty and Deals:

Our website pricing will typically reflect manufacturers RRP.

We do have our in-store Loyalty Scheme, for our customers. For every $75 spend, you will be rewarded with a $5 voucher off your next purchase. This as also applied manually to website orders, where virtual vouchers will be emailed back to qualifying customers. 

We will also offer to PRICE MATCH New Zealand based competitors price, at our discretion, but such price matching would NOT routinely qualify you for Loyalty spend too!

However, we do also offer an additional loyalty scheme working on the local price-matched price of Games Workshop brand products, giving further discount voucher rewards. 


At this time we primarily ship to New Zealand based addresses, and such shipping will be 'at cost', with our appointed carrier firms. We use Castle Parcels, a division of PostHaste couriers, as our Economy Parcel Service. This arrangement also allows us to ship Dangerous Goods, such as aerosol spray paint cans, to you at no additional cost.

We can also offer you a more rapid service via Courier Post. The is service level is broken down into 5 zone, determined by distance from us in an ever widening circle radius:

There is still no additional tariff for dangerous goods deliveries, but CourierPost will NOT deliver these to Rural Addresses. If you require dangerous goods to a rural address, please select the Economy Parcel Carrier.

We will also ship Internationally, and again this would be at cost via NZ Post. However we would NOT be able to ship hazardous good such as spray paints and varnishes.
