Decent/reliable US stockist for Victrix ancients?
« on: January 15, 2022, 07:46:55 PM »
Looking at fooling around with some classical rank-n-flank action.

Would like to start with some Victrix ancients.  I'm currently searching, but is there a reliable go-to retailer for Victrix in the US?  I've found a couple that have middling stock and middling shipping, and some like the usual Noble Knight who have egregiously comical pricing.

Is there a "go to" out there people can recommend?

McDougallDesigns just started putting together bundle deals with 3D accessories he prints:

I was a customer while he was with Two Idiots Printing but have not yet ordered from his new venture. I do intend to.

re. shipping - there is a pandemic, don't you know?!

re. low stock - a measure of product popularity, perhaps?

Not sure how either should reflect negatively on a vendor.  ???

Michtoy are a nice company that stock victrix here in the states and I have good dealings with them. However, I usually just end up ordering straight from Victrix themselves. They ship very fast to the States and I usually want to buy shield transfers as well.

I've ordered straight from Victrix to the States a few times, and am always shocked by how fast it is, so that might be an option?

I actually haven't had a problem with ordering Victrix from Noble Knight. I'm normally getting a haul anyway, so shipping is free; also, they quite often have "used" boxes/packs which just means someone opened the bag and that's it, and those tend to cost about what they do "actually new" pre-shipping straight from Vixtrix.

Finally, I've had great experiences with Badger Games: https://shop.badgergames.com/category.sc?categoryId=629 -- Great folks, quick shipping, and pricing is competitive with Victrix since last I checked they don't have a physical storefront.

I will have to second the earlier comment though about stock levels, shipping, etc. I'm willing to give most companies a pass right now, with everything going on. It's not Badger Games' fault if their pallet of Victrix soldiers they ordered 3 months ago is still sitting in a container ship stuck off the US coast, right? :)

My FLGS, the Hobby Bunker usually has a good stock on the shelves.  If you give them a call, they'll check the inventory right then.

I have ordered direct from Victrix with no problems.  Michigan Toy is one US option.  Another one is:

I have used Michigan Toy and direct from Victrix.  Both work fine.

Victrix is shockingly fast direct.
