Element Games vs Arcane Miniatures

Post by me_in_japan » Sat Oct 18, 2014 3:35 pm

a quick question:

Has anybody ever used either Element Games or Arcane Miniatures (both online mini shops). I'm looking to order the new infinity rulebook (a heavy beast) as well as the newish Malifaux book (another heavy beast) and these are the two sites that offer the most reasonable shipping (both end up at about 85quid for everything I want, inc shipping). I'm just wondering if anybody has had any experience with either company, as I know nowt about em.

ta in advance :)

Think, but can't remember the context, that element are ok.. Wayland are doing 25% off the infinity book (so, 37.50) and free shipping over 40 quid...yes, they are annoyingly slow, but they get there eventually.
I might be interested in infinity, but can't figure out the factions at the moment.

Have you tried www.ring-tail.com? They have free shipping over 10,000 yen and it helps out a local (kinda) store.

ringtail's not a bad idea, but it's 16300 for the stuff I'm looking at. UK total is in the region of 14000, so that's enough of a difference to make me go "Hmnnnnn"
