Welcome to FeR Miniatures!

Hi all

Last time I wrote a post of this kind it was about the latest H&V releases for the Stresa WE. Well, a lot of things have happened in these last three months and we are not even on the same website now. As some of you already know, the previous company was a joint venture I started with a partner. Now that collaboration is over and it’s time to move on…

What I have the pleasure of presenting you today is a completely new project: FeR Miniatures.

More than just another miniatures company, we consider this venture a platform for independent artists were we can work and collaborate like equals, based on a fair deal for everyone. I’m lucky to count with the support of all the core artists and sculptors than were involved in the previous company. Fahrenheit Miniature Project, Stahlhelm Series, Portraits from the American Civil War, Peter Punk Produktions and Clash of Cultures – Deus Vult! will be a very important part of this new project, as some other product lines that are yet under development.

You will find certain different things in the new company.

First of all a completely new website that has been designed to offer a much easier navigation and better presentation of the products, both from your average computer and all kind of portable devices.

Second, we have raised a bit the price of some of the miniatures, in comparison with its cost when they were on sale through H&V. The reason behind this raise is quite simple. Originally, I devised this policy of really low prices for high quality products with the expectations of compensating it with bigger sales. But, as this is a really small hobby, those expectations never really came true. It isn’t a problem of bad sales, is a problem of not selling enough figures for compensating that margin because, sadly, there are not so many of us out there… yet. The current price policy respects the original spirit of fair prices, still significantly lower than similar products from other companies, but allows us to make a living on this and have more room to improve the distribution chain through independent retailers.

Third. In an effort for compesating the above mentioned raise, we have lowered significantly the shipping costs, mainly for international orders. The same thing that before costed 15€ to ship to the United States (in example), now is only 6€. Depending on the order, if you take into account the total amount including the shipment, it might be less expensive now than before, even with the raise.

Now, let’s talk about the new releases.
