One last item of note. As we mentioned on a recent TMP news release, we have been having issues with our internet access here at RHG Global Headquarters. This doesn't affect our web host, but it could cause delays in communicating with us. you can still place orders as normally, but our confirmation email to your after we get your order may be delayed, as well as replied to any emails you may send us directly. We hope to have this resolved early this week. So far the connectivity issues haven't caused any problems, so we're hopeful that this will be taken care of with no impact on our operations.
July 2, 2007 - Something New For Everyone!
This time we bring you another big update with a little something for everyone! There's sci-fi, fantasy, horror, ultra-moderns, superheroes, all kinds of stuff! We've got a few new lines from new manufacturers as well as some old favorites.
First up, we're proud to have Outcast Miniatures products available for order. Outcast produces those fantastic new Space Dwarves as well as some fantasy figures and zombies! Beautiful stuff!

June 10, 2007 - Enormous Catalog Update
Once again, we've done a major catalog update - perhaps the largest we've done since adding the Reaper product lines to the catalog! This time, we've added lines from at least six different companies plus new releases from some of your favorites. Also, as we mentioned in our last news release, we've completed the price adjustment on those lines imported from the UK. Surprisingly, many of these prices didn't go up as much as we'd feared!
Let's begin with the new product lines we've added. For starters, we've added Rattrap Productions to the catalog, including the new Gloire sourcebook, Under the Black Flag. Also, we've got Blue Moon Manufacturing with their scenario boxes and sets of villagers. Additionally, we've got the initial offerings from Cyclops Forge, including some fantastic fantasy and sci-fi figures. For you historicals folks, we've got the Xyston range of DBA armies available. Also, be sure to check out the brand new line of fantasy figures from Darkwater Minis. But, you can't have a war without something to fight over, so how about pre-painted terrain from War Torn Worlds!
But, we can't forget those old favorites with their newest goodies! Like the new Mephalian Gort Beast products from Alpha Forge Games! That's one beefy critter! Then there's the new releases from Hasslefree, including the fantastic Barbarian Libby on Tigress. She's also available seperate so you can mount the lass on whatever you please! Hmmmm, Barbarian Libby mounted on a Gort Beast? Also, we've added the latest releases from Jonas Deimel of Fat Cat Miniatures, new items from Flashpoint Miniatures, the new Wyrd Miniatures masterpieces, TableScape trees, new Dark Age, new Aberrant Games Rezolution goodies... The list goes on and on!
As is our usual practice, we'll take orders for a few days before we place our initial stock orders for these new items. This will give you a chance to get your pre-orders in the first shipment and be the first in your group to show off some truely fantastic new toys!
June 4, 2007 - Chasing the British Pound - Impending Price Increase
Well folks, we've held out as long as we can. However, with the exchange rate between the US Dollar and the UK Pound remaining at about a 1:2 ratio, we are going to have to adjust our prices accordingly. We're currently working on a major catalog update and at some point over the next few days we hope to have it complete. During this process, most of our pricing on items imported from the UK will be adjusted to bring them more in line with the current economic situation. This will apply to products by Hasslefree, Pig Iron Productions, Black Hat, Spriggan and any other UK imports. However, orders placed prior to the catalog update will be at the current prices, so you've got a day or two to get in on a pretty good deal!
May 29, 2007 - This is LEONIDAS!
That's right folks! We've finally gotten that fantastic new King Leonidas figure from Rebel Minis in the catalog! He's 28mm, retails for $9.99 US dollars and he's in stock now! Supplies are limited, so order fast to avoid back-order delays.
Also, while we've got your attention, we'd like to mention that even though the US Postal Service has increased postage rates recently, our shipping policies remain unchanged. Domestic customers still pay only $3.85 for orders under $50 and shipping is free for orders of $50 or more. International customers pay actual postage for their order.
April 18, 2007 - Jonas Deimel Headhunter Now Available
Continuing our practice of bringing the best small manufacturers to the United States, we've just added the Headhunter, by Jonas Deimel to the catalog under the name Fat Cat Miniatures. This fantastic 28mm figure is in stock now! Further, we expect to add more products from this talented sculptor in the near future!

First, we're really happy to be taking orders for the latest releases from Ninja Magic. We've got two new packs of components for their Magnetic Flight Stand Adapter system. One is a pack of angled adapter segments at 45 degrees and the other is a set of 90 degree adapters.

December 21, 2006 - Latest News
Hello all! Just a quick update on the latest here at RHG.
First, due to communication problems, we've had to remove Magnificent Egos from our catalog. We've been unable to contact them for some time and so we can't order products from them. As a result, we've taken them out of the catalog for now. Hopefully, we'll be able to add them back in at some point in the future.
Second, we're also removing Freebooter from the catalog. Their products are fantastic but unfortunately we've not had enough interest from our customers to make stocking their products cost effective. Perhaps we'll give them another shot in the future.
We've got lots of new things to add to the catalog in the near future. Stay tuned! Meanwhile, we hope you all have a great holiday season!

Also, if you're in the San Francisco area, you can meet the Aberrant gang at the Conquest SF game show at the Airport Marriot over the Labor Day weekend.
Finally, we'd like to remind everyone to take a look at our Policies page for current info on international shipping, frequently asked questions and other information. This includes our newly reduced shipping rates! Previously, domestic orders under $30 were charged $3.85 for shipping and orders between $30 and $50 were charged $6.00 shipping with orders $50 and over shipping for free. We've decided that all domestic orders under $50 will be charged $3.85 with orders of $50 or more shipping for free. Why $3.85? That's what it cost to ship one pound via Priority Mail when we opened. The rates have since gone up a bit, but we don't want to increase it if we can avoid it! Please see our Policies page for full shipping details and information on international shipping.

May 27, 2006 - Massive Catalog Update!
Today we've finally completed a major catalog update that has taken us quite some time to get put together! Here's the skinny:
First, the bad news. As of this update, we will no longer be carrying the Cold Navy line of starships from Xtreme Hobby. We do hope to add them back to the catalog when someone purchases the production rights to this fantastic line of ships. Meanwhile, we wish Mike Hardy of Xtreme Hobby all the best in whatever he does and hope to see him rejoin the games industry when he is able! Best of luck, Mike!
To begin with, we have the usual new releases from Mongoose Publishing, Reaper, Mega Minis and others. Due to the size of this update, it's taken us a while to complete it and so there are quite a few new items!
Now, on to further new additions! First, we've got several new items from Alpha Forge Games added to the catalog. Included in this update are the Asteroid Miner Prefects, their Security Drones and 7 new Salvagers! Among these new additions are some new Squad deals as well! Take a look around and check it out!
Additionally, we're proud to have Aberrant Games as a part of our catalog! Their Rezolution line of figures are very popular and with good reason. These are some very unique sci-fi figures and the Rezolution ruleset has been very well received! We're really happy to finally have them in our regular lineup!
Also, we've got Crunch-Waffle Enterprises as a new manufacturer! These are a line of 32mm fantasy figures that focus on myths and legends that aren't well represented in existing miniatures lines. They have some really original sculpts and we are very proud to have been chosen as a retailer for them!
Another new manufacturer is TableScape. Their line of fully painted terrain is cast in rigid foam and very durable. Their trenchworks, industrial items and other scenery elements are fantastic and will make a great addition to any gamer's table! Great stuff!
Finally, we're proud to be a retailer for Deist Games, a new RPG company that's on the rise. Their Future Nexus RPG is sure to be a hit! Also, check out the novel in the Future Nexus line!
One last note: As of May 23rd, Rattlehead Games has been in business for one year! We want to thank all of you for your support and we look forward to serving you for many years to come! Thank You!

Eastern Front produces a variety of very original fantasy figures in the 28-30mm range as well as a few 54mm figures in there for good measure.

March 3, 2006 - Catalog Updated Again

Also, there are fleet boxes available to make it quick and easy to put together a spacefaring flotilla of doom in no time!
Finally, we're proud to bring you the first products available from Warg Miniatures! This is a brand new company that we're expecting big things from as their line grows. For now, they've got some nice power-armored Shock Troopers and a couple of awesome Hapless Zombies!
As is our usual practice, we'll be waiting a few days before we order our initial stock to give you time to get your orders in!
January 24, 2006 - New Hasslefree and Wyrd Miniatures!
We've got lots of new additions to the catalog today! First, there are two new figures from Wyrd Miniatures: Pandora With Her Box Of Woes and Ramos, Steampunk Sorcerer! These are some great looking figures!

We've just added the new Sci-Fi Chessmen from Revelation Miniatures to the catalog! These are some spiffy figures that draw their inspiration from chess pieces. They're science fiction miniatures with a few anacronistic elements that give them a truly unique look! Revelation Miniatures is an emerging company that will be going places! Get your chessmen on order now to get in on the first wave!
January 18, 2006 - Taking Pre-Orders For Pig Iron Chain Gun Teams!

Get your order in soon to make sure you're among the first on your block with this heavy firepower!
January 17, 2006 - Catalog Finally Updated!
Well, it took a long time to get it taken care of, but the catalog is finally updated! We've had a lot going on here recently, as well as family illnesses and other distractions, so it took us a while to get the catalog in shape. But it's finally up to date! There are, however, a good many things we still intend to do with it in the near future. Stay Tuned!
In other news, we've had a large number of Hasslefree Adventurers come in. We now have the entire Adventurers line in stock! This will help us avoid those lengthy back-orders involving trans-atlantic shipping times.
Also, we have the full selection of Wyrd Miniatures figures in stock and ready to ship out! These fantastic sculpts have a lot of character and are very original. This is one product line that's going places!
December 30, 2005 - Upcoming Catalog Update
First, let me send a BIG Thank You to all of you who've made this holiday season a success for us here at Rattlehead Games! We're extremely lucky to have such great customers and we look forward to serving you all in the future! Thanks guys!
We've been incredibly busy here at RHG trying to fill all of the orders this month and, of course, spending holiday time with our families. As a result, the catalog hasn't been updated at all this month. Now, with most of the rush over, we're working on getting the catalog caught up and all the new goodies added to it. Updating the catalog also means updating the In Stock indicators. At this point, they're a bit out of whack since we've not been able to make regular updates.
Also, this update will be a major one. If you try to browse the catalog in the next few days or so and have problems, there's a good chance that we're working on it. We expect there to be a couple of hours at least where the catalog will be unavailable over the next few days. When the update is finished, there may be a few surprises added as well!
Meanwhile, if there's an item that you know has been released, but we don't have it in the catalog yet, you can just drop us a line and we can work it out for you!
We hope you all had a great Christmas season and wish you and yours a magnificent new year!
December 1, 2005 - Warlocke Miniatures Now In Stock!
The first miniatures have been released for the upcoming fantasy wargame Warlocke: Rise of the Young Kingdoms by Knight Terror Games! We're pleased to offer these great figures for sale and they are in stock now! Included in the initial release are the Wyr of The Atroc, Catlords of Norrick Marsh and the Fallen Widows of the Fallen Widow Sisterhood, a Kingdom of the Republic. There are two seperate sculpts available for the Fallen Widows as well as a unit pack that contains four of these deadly ladies!
November 29, 2005 - Spug Army Deal Now Available!
We've just gotten word from Spriggan Miniatures that the Spug Army Deal will be made available at the same time as the Jumpspug release! The Spug Army deal will contain 3 Ground Squads (each containing 4 Drone Troopers, 1 Alpha Drone, 1 Heavy Weapon Spug and 1 Comms Spug), a Jump Squad of 4 Jumpspugs, a Spugnaught Exo-Suit and an Omega Drone with his attendant Comms Spug. That's 28 figures for only $60! The Spug Invasion has just escalated!
November 29, 2005 - Jumpspug Pre-Orders And New Pig Iron!
We're now taking pre-orders for the new Jumpspug from Spriggan Miniatures! These will probably ship out from Spriggan in a couple of weeks and if you want yours first, grab 'em now! The current image only displays one of the two sculpts, but we hope to have a better picture in a few days!
Also, we're taking orders for the new Pig Iron Productions Command Squad. This fantastic set contains 5 figures: Commander, Sniper, Support Droid, Comms Trooper and Medic.
Finally, we want to mention that we're still looking for people interested in donating Warmachine items to the Hohokam Middle School Warmachine Club. If you'd like to help them out, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll tell you how you can do your part!
November 16, 2005 - Now Taking Orders For Wyrd Miniatures!
You've probably seen the incredible 32mm figures from Wyrd Miniatures featured recently on The Miniatures Page. Well, now they can be yours! As usual, we're giving everyone a chance to get their orders in before we place our first order for stock. If you'd like to get yours in the first shipment, order now! These figures are fantastic!
October 31, 2005 - New Pig Iron Productions Images Uploaded!
We've gotten the new (better) images for the Pig Iron Productions products uploaded! These are better quality and larger images. They'll take a bit longer to load but will allow you to better see these fantastic products!
October 28, 2005 - Your Wish Is My Demand!
Ok, this is a big news update! First, as requested, we are now offering Pig Iron Productions products! However, please be aware that this is a provisional measure. We're not sure if carrying the Pig Iron items will be cost-effective. So, it may turn out that we will have to drop the Pig Iron line in the future. But, we hope to keep them with us for a long time! Also, we have images of all of the Pig Iron items in the catalog, but we are expecting better (and bigger) pictures soon. Pig Iron offers some great looking products!
The other big news is that, at long last, we are finally carrying Alpha Forge Games products! This too is subject to some conditions, however. In order to stock the Alpha Forge items, we have to meet certain requirements - primarily a minimum order size when purchasing stock. The guys at Alpha Forge have been incredibly helpful in making this possible, by the way. So let me say thanks to them - Thanks Guys! So, in order to meet this minimum order size, we will be holding orders for Alpha Forge items until a sufficient amount has been ordered to cover the minimum amount, at which time we'll place the order and then send the items on to you. The description of each Alpha Forge item has a reminder of this added and let's you know that you can drop us a line by email to find out a rough estimate on how long before we place the order with Alpha Forge.
Wow! That's a lot to remember! Just remember this: You can always feel free to contact us at email@example.com any time you have a question!
October 21, 2005 - Hasslefree Miniatures Images Uploaded!
The images for all of the Hasslefree Miniatures products in our catalog are now uploaded! Enjoy!
October 20, 2005 - We Now Offer Hasslefree Miniatures!
We're now offering Hasslefree Miniatures products! We haven't placed our first stock order just yet, so if you'd like to have some Hasslefree items now is the time to get your order in so that it comes in the first shipment! The catalog currently has all of the Hasslefree Miniatures figures, however we don't have the pictures yet. We hope to have the pictures in a few days or so. With that in mind, please be sure that the products you are ordering are the correct items.
Also, we'd like to remind everyone that our C.A.V. 30% Off sale is still going on! Get your C.A.V. fix now while the prices are great!
Finally, don't forget the new Rebel Minis items we have on offer with more items coming soon!
October 13, 2005 - Major C.A.V. 30% Off Sale!
We've got quite a bit of C.A.V. items in stock that just aren't moving. So, we've decided to have a sale on C.A.V. items like the one we had a while back for Warmachine! Like with the Warmachine sale, these items are 30% Off. Also, as with the Warmachine sale, we've set up a special page for you to see what items we have in stock in the C.A.V. line. What's new about this sale is that we've also lowered the prices on all of the C.A.V. items in our catalog, so you can place your order directly through the shopping cart.
Please note: We will try to fill all of the orders we can, at the sale price. These items are first come - first served, so get your orders in soon! Also, we'll try to update the sale page as often as possible to keep it up to date.
October 5, 2005 - Now Offering Rebel Miniatures!
We're pleased to announce that we're now carrying Rebel Miniatures products! These items include Modern and World War II figures in 15mm and 28mm scales as well as a line of Pirates! We're getting ready to place our first order for Rebel stock and we'd like to know what you want in it. To make sure your order comes in the first shipment, place it this week! We expect to place the first order next Wednesday, the 12th.
Also, Rebel will be releasing modern zombies and zombie dogs in 15mm later this month! Stay tuned for details!
September 27, 2005 - New Spug Omega Drone Pre-Orders!
We're now taking pre-orders for the new Spug Omega Drone! The expected release date for this item is October 10th. We're also planning to restock our other Spugs items when we order the new one. You can place your order now to ensure you get your Omega Drone in the first shipment!
September 8, 2005 - Shipping Charges Further Reduced!
We've lowered our shipping charges again! The new rates are somewhat simpler. For orders under $30.00, shipping is $3.85. For orders of $30.00 up to $49.99, shipping is $6.00 and for orders of $50.00 or more, shipping is still free! Our policies themselves are still the same, the only change has been to the actual charges made by our shopping cart system. Our mail order forms will be updated to reflect the new shipping prices as well. Please see the Policies/FAQ page for details and feel free to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions!
Also, we seem to be having trouble sending email replies to AOL email addresses. If you have contacted us recently without getting a reply and you have an AOL email address, please try contacting us through a different email provider. We think it may be AOL's "spam-filtering" software that is causing these problems and are working on the issue, but for now we can't reply to AOL email addresses. We aplogize for any delays caused by this.
September 3, 2005 - New Privateer Press Goodies!
The new Privateer Press items are here! First, we've got the new books, Apotheosis and the IK RPG Liber Mechanika. Second, we have the four new biggies, Captain Darius, the Harbinger of Menoth, Karchev the Terrible and Lich Lord Terminus! These are true giants! Unfortunately, we don't have an image for Terminus or the Liber Mechanika book - Privateer isn't really set up to support online retailers.
In other news, the new Spugs have sold out, but more are on the way and should be arriving this week! Those of you with outstanding orders should be seeing yours soon!
August 26, 2005 - New Spugs Are (Were) Here!
The new Spug Exo-Suit and Comms Spug figures have arrived! Then, they promptly left, on their way to customers! However, we're putting together another order for more this weekend and hope to have more in stock within two weeks or so. At the time of this writing, we still have 2 of the Comms Spugs in stock, but the Spugnaughts are already sold out - and we had ordered extras too! We aplogize to those of you who haven't had a chance to get yours ordered yet, but more will be here as soon as possible! Also, we'll be getting more of the Drone 6-Packs as well.
August 24, 2005 - Spugs Delay and Reaper Pics
First, the bad news. We had planned to ship the Spug Exo-Suit and Comms Spug pre-orders out today, however, they've not arrived yet. They are likely tied up in Customs somewhere and will arrive soon. We aplogize for the delay!
But there's good news today as well! We've just added 553 product images for our Reaper Miniatures products! We're still missing some, including the paint lines and some of the boxed sets, but these should help make choosing the right figure a lot easier!
August 23, 2005 - In Stock Indicator Added!
While we're looking at changing our catalog system over to something more full-featured in the future, for now we continue to add features to the existing system. Our latest addition is an In Stock indicator that appears on a product's page when it is currently in stock. There are a few things to keep in mind about this however. First, we're still growing and our stock is still rather shallow, so many items are not in stock. This is a condition we've mentioned before. Also, if an item is out of stock here, we can still usually get items in about 2 days from our suppliers. Finally, the current system only updates the In Stock indicator when that catalog page is updated. It's not tied directly to our shopping cart system and the indicator has to be updated manually. We'll try to keep these pages up to date as best we can, but to make completely sure that an item is available, feel free to drop us a line at email@example.com and ask!
August 19, 2005 - Policies/FAQ Page Updated!
We've just updated our Policies/FAQ page. This is a fairly minor update. One thing that has changed is that we're using Priority Mail more and more for our shipments. This is largely a matter of trying to do what our customers prefer. We can still use UPS so if you have a shipping preference, let us know and we'll try to work with you. Also, we've added an order form in HTML and Word formats for orders by mail. These can be reached from our Policies page as well.
August 8, 2005 - Spug Exo-Suit Spugnaught and Comms Spug Pre-Orders!
We are now taking pre-orders for the new Spugs that are coming soon from Spriggan Miniatures! These Highly anticipated figs are to be released on August 24th and can be ordered today! Check out the Spugnaught and the Comms Spug and get your order in for the first shipment!
August 7, 2005 - Big Catalog Update!
Another massive catalog update today! We've added more of the Classic BattleTech line, the entire Mega Miniatures line (including Dungeon Decor) as well as most of the Palladium Books products available! Rifts fans rejoice! Also, don't forget to check out Gutshot from Hawgleg Publishing!
Finally, we'd like to remind everyone to check out FlatCon 2005, September 23-25, in Bloomington, Illinois. Check their site to find out about all the action!
August 6, 2005 - Gutshot is coming!
We've just added Gutshot, the western skirmish game, to our catalog! We've already got these new rulebooks on their way and they should be arriving shortly. To make sure you get your copy and avoid back-order delays, get your order in quick!
August 5, 2005 - Sisters Day C.A.V. Sale!
Today is Sisters Day and you know what that means! It's time for our Sisters Day C.A.V. Sale! Alright, so we just needed an excuse to have a sale on our C.A.V. goodies, but it really is Sisters Day, so give yours a hug if you have one! But one day isn't long enough to really enjoy a sale, so from now through Friday, August 12th, 2005 (which happens to be Truck Driver Day) all of our C.A.V. items are 25% off!
August 4, 2005 - Don't forget to attend Recruits Con Fall 05!
Rattlehead Games is proud to sponsor the Recruits Con Fall 05 convention! This convention, put on by the Lee's Summit High School Organization of Strategic Gamers, will take place August 26-27, 2005. The location will be at Lee's Summit High School in Lee's Summit, MO. Check the Recruits Con website for more information.
July 26, 2005 - Warmachine 30% Off Sale Has Ended!
Well, our Warmachine 30% Off Sale was a big hit! A big special thanks to everyone who participated! Keep your eye on us for future sales and special events in the future!
July 21, 2005 - More Pre-Order Deals!
Ok, the release dates on a couple of the Starship Troopers items have been pushed back a bit, so the Heroes of the Mobile Infantry and Brain Bug Boxed Sets have had their prices dropped back to 25% off until midnight (US Eastern Time) on the 24th! Also, we've begun taking pre-orders (at 25% off) for the WASP Troopers, Reliant Gun Platforms and Tanker Bug Boxed Sets as well as the Klendathu Invasion Campaign Book! These pre-order prices are available until August 1st!
But here's the big news! We're now taking pre-orders for the Serenity RPG at 25% off as well! This pricing will be available until midnight on the 25th of this month, so you need to hurry if you want to book passage on this Firefly at that price!
Please remember that these pre-orders don't ship for some time. I've added descriptive text to the pre-order products' pages indicating their tentative release dates.
July 15, 2005 - Warmachine 30% Off Sale Continues!
We've got a few items coming in from our distributor and we've added them to the list. At this point, we have one of each item on the list, except for the Warmachine: Escalation rulebook - which we have 2 of. Check the sale list to see what's been added and what's left!

July 14, 2005 - Spugs, Spugs, Beautiful Spugs!
Those lads from Liverpool have arrived on US shores! No, not THOSE lads... SPUGS!!! We've got our stock of Spugs in today and they're cute little fellers! Well, as cute as bloodthirsty alien invaders can be expected to be... Those of you with early orders should be receiving yours soon (if you haven't already) as Paul at Spriggan Miniatures was kind enough to ship them direct to you. Those of you with more recent orders will be getting yours soon as well. I expect to ship them out tomorrow (or maybe today!). If you haven't ordered your Spugs yet, get 'em while they're hot - and before they kill us all!
July 12, 2005 - Selected Warmachine on Sale at 30% Off!

Most of these items have limited quantities, but we will try to fill all the orders we can. This sale isn't being done through our normal catalog but rather through a special sale page.

July 6, 2005 - No Quarter magazine #1 with Captain Haley figure available now!
We've got two copies of this item arriving tomorrow. These will probably go fast and we're not sure how likely it is that we'll get any more. These won't be appearing in the catalog, but instead, if you'd like to order a copy drop me a line and I'll whip you up an invoice through PayPal!
July 6, 2005 - We're Proud To Support Hersey Con 05!
Rattlehead Games is proud to support Hersey Con 05, the world's only online games convention!
Check them out:
Be sure to check out all of their events!
July 5, 2005 - Thanks Jim!
Special Thanks to Jim B. who pointed out that the links in the below news story weren't working in Firefox! Upon further inspection, it turns out that all but one of the previously posted links to catalog pages wouldn't work in Firefox! It seems that Firefox is a bit picky about it's slashes in URLs - but it should be fixed now. Thanks a bundle Jim! Send us your address and we'll send you a free Spug figure when our shipment arrives!
July 5, 2005 - The Spug Invasion Has Begun!
Rattlehead Games is now the exclusive US retailer for Spugs from Spriggan Miniatures! These alien invaders from the UK are ready to take the States by storm! We're taking orders now, so go ahead and get yours from the first bunch to arrive on our shores! We're expecting about 10-14 days back-order times on these.
Meanwhile, we're still adding new items to our catalog. Most recently, we've added several more of the BattleTech items, particularly a lot of AeroTech 2 ships.
June 21, 2005 - Massive Catalog Update
Wow! We've just added almost every Reaper Miniatures product to our catalog! In fact, the new additions add up to nearly 3 times the number of items there were in the entire catalog before! This was a large undertaking, but it was made possible by the help of Jay Ragan of Reaper! Our hats off and a BIG Thank You to Jay! Of course, the lack of pictures remains an issue, and we're working on it. With nearly 1000 new items added, it's going to take a while to get images for all of this. Also, due to the large update size, there may be typos, odd links and other strangeness. We've tried to find all of the "bugs" in the catalog, but if you notice something wrong, please let us know!
Also, more big news. We realize that our current policy of only taking domestic orders is likely a frustration to those outside the US who'd like to order from us. While our current system doesn't allow us to easily accept international orders, we do want to do everything possible to make Rattlehead Games as useful as possible to everyone. So, we are now taking international orders! Since our catalog system won't work for this, we will need to handle each order manually. To place an international order, send an email to email@example.com with your PayPal account email, a list of all products you want to order and their product numbers and we'll be in touch. Please be aware that international customers must be billed for the exact shipping amount, regardless of order size. PayPal is still required, as we'll have to send you a manually prepared invoice for the order. Please note that all payments must be in US Dollars. Also, be sure that your PayPal email is a current, working email address! We look forward to serving our international customers!
Finally, we've adjusted our catalog so that many of the product links are in alphabetical order. However, some of the "higher level" catalog pages are still not sorting properly. We're planning on fixing this in the near future, but for now it doesn't seem to be too difficult to find your way around the catalog.
June 19, 2005 - Another BIG Catalog Update
We've just added a bunch of items to the catalog. We now have the entire Warmachine line available! Some of these items will have to be back-ordered, but we can now take orders for them. Also, we've begun to add BattleTech items. Again, there may be backordering involved with these items as we don't have a lot of them in stock as well.
Also, due to the large number of items added, we're behind on getting pictures for them all. We know how important it is that you be able to see the items before making the decision to buy them and we're working to get more images uploaded all the time.
Finally, if there's any product in print that you'd like to buy but don't see it in our catalog, just let us know and we'll try to add it quickly if any of our suppliers have it. To request a product be added to the catalog, or if you have any questions, just drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get back to you right away!
Thanks for stopping by!
June 17, 2005 - Rattlehead Games now on eBay

Good Luck Bidding!
June 15, 2005 - BIG Catalog Update

If you're into fantasy role-playing and you haven't tried The Riddle Of Steel, you have got to check it out!
June 12, 2005 - Grand Opening Sale Ends
Our Grand Opening Sale has ended - but I think you'll find our prices are still great! Expect price fluctiations in the future as we adjust things to provide the best deals we can.
Thanks to everyone who has chosen to give us a try! We look forward to serving you all for years to come!
June 8, 2005 - Marauder Suits On Their Way
Our Ape and Chickenhawk Marauder Suits for Starship Troopers are on their way from the distributor! These should be arriving in a couple of days, but if you want to go ahead and get your order in we're taking orders for them now.
Also, our Grand Opening Sale is going to be ending soon. The 25% off prices will be available until Saturday, June 11th. Come midnight(EDT) on Sunday morning, our regular prices will go into effect.
Finally, we'd like to let everyone know about the new BeQuest forums over at www.kazorum.com/theescapist.html. Head on over and take a look!
As always, drop us a line with your suggestions and comments!
June 2, 2005 - New Warmachine and Starship Troopers Items In
We've just got our latest shipment in! Included in this shipment we have the Skinnie Militia and Skinnie Raider blisters for Starship Troopers and Battle Group Boxed sets for Warmachine. These items have ridiculous back-order times, so get 'em quick while we have them in stock! Further, we've added the rest of the C.A.V. line to our catalog. Some of these items will be backordered and others are in stock now.
Also, our Grand Opening Sale is still going on so everything is still 25% off!
Please feel free to contact us with your suggestions!
May 29, 2005 - Shipping Prices Dropped
We've cut our shipping prices way back! Check them out on our Policies page. While the community response to our opening has been overwhelmingly favorable, our shipping prices were the number one area recommended for improvement. You spoke, we listened! We're going to try out these new rates and see how things go. We hope you find them to your liking! Let us know what you think!
Also, we're proud to provide a link to BeQuest! To avoid clutter and some formatting issues, the link can be found at the bottom of all of our main (non-catalog) pages. Give them a look and find out how you can make a difference today!
May 28, 2005 - A New Site Tweak
In the on-going effort to make this site more useful to you, our visitors, we've added the MSRP to product pages. Now you can see just how much money you're saving when you shop with Rattlehead Games! Thanks to Brambledemon who made this suggestion over at The Miniatures Page! As always, we welcome your suggestions and website comments!
May 25, 2005 - Website Adjustments and Price Drop
We've made some adjustments to the site. First, the logo and navigation button images are smaller, which should make things easier for visitors running lower resolutions. Second, product pages now have links at the top to make it a bit easier to back up through the catalog. I hope these changes make the site a bit more user friendly, and as always we welcome your suggestions and website comments!
Also, almost all of the C.A.V. figures have had their prices dropped!
