Grenadier recasts available in the US!

Grenadier Models were the first D&D figures I ever bought and have always been among my favorites.  When Grenadier went under in the 1990s, their molds were mostly bought up by Mirlton, an Italian company that has done a great job keeping a lot of their later figures in print, although this has mostly been the Fantasy Warriors line — some great stuff mostly by Copplestone and Nick Lund, I think.  There are some great monsters and such, including the wicked Chaos Giant, too.  The cost and difficulty of ordering from overseas has kept me from buying any of this stuff, but good news — Tony Korman has worked out an arrangement to import them in bulk and sell them inside the US.

With Tony’s permission, I’m reposting his announcement.  Hurry up and get you some!

I’ve decided to do my pricing differently.  If you go to the Mirliton site www.mirliton.it you will find their prices listed in euros.  To get the USD price you would have to multiply the euro amount by a factor of 1.4 and this will fluctuate from month to month.  If you enter your items in the online shopping cart and enter it to the point that it shows shipping, add your euro purchase cost to the euro shipping cost (which I think the minimum shipping is 18.50 euro($24.05) and then multiply the total by that 1.4 factor to get the USD price that you would pay through Mirliton in Italy directly.  If you order it through me take that same USD total and subtract 15% and that’s what you will pay ordering through me.  For this first months order I am asking for a minimum $50 USD order (that’s the price of the items in USD prior to adding the foreign shipping amount).  Please list the items product code and product description along with the prices and email it along with your name and mailing address to kormanstudio[at] hotmail [fullstop] com.  Thanks, Tony

The Grenadier lines on offer there in the Fantasy and Nightmares sections.  I’m pretty sure the 15mm fantasy is Grenadier too.

UPDATE: Tony has a web site up now: http://kstudiominiatures.weebly.com/

  1. Nice work!

    He’s got some really nice minis over there.

  2. Yes, but the Euro to dollar ratio is 1.3 to 1 and is fairly stable, which means your savings is only %5. And Mirliton offers generous bulk discounts and there is no mention of those above. 😐

    • I think the 1.4 is used to help cover shipping?
      I didn’t know about the bulk discount — but since Tony says to use Mirlton’s cart to calculate your cost, I think you’d get that from him too…

  3. Nice! Thanks for posting about this. Do you know if the recasts are lead-free and have integrated bases? I’m having a hard time finding info on their site.

    • I think they would have the original (non slotta) bases … some are shown on plastic bases though. There is a ‘contact’ form on the Mirlton web site which you might try regarding the metal and bases.

    • Yes, lead-free, from what Tony tells me.
