New – Stock Status Webstore Enhancement!

June 22, 2020 News from the Dark Horse

We’ve added a quick-scan stock status box to our webstore to help identify the stock status of items more quickly. The new enhancement adds a colored box below the item in the listing pages that tell you how many of an item we have in stock as well as a green box for ready-to-ship items, an ochre box for out-of-stock items that you can still order/backorder, and a red box for out-of-stock items that you cannot currently order/backorder (you can still request an email notification when the item is back in stock, however – which we encourage you to do).

Webstore Enhancement - Stock Status ATO-OOS-OK

Products with a Green box are available to order – Ochre box is out of stock but can be ordered.

Product with a Green box can be ordered – Red Box is out of stock and cannot be ordered.

Blood & Plunder – New Deal Arriving Soon!

April 7, 2020 News from the Dark Horse

Blood & Plunder by Firelock Games

We just wanted to take a moment to let everyone know that Dark Horse Hobbies has recently secured a direct purchasing arrangement with Firelock Games so that we can get back on-board with their Blood & Plunder Pirate Skirmish game, as well as other products produced by Firelock Games moving forward. It has been our experience that working directly with the manufacturers saves us all a lot of headache as we no longer rely on third-hand information about availability nor are we forced to wait weeks or sometimes even months for a distributor to restock the items you want most. We’re looking forward to this new arrangement and to supplying you with all your Swashbuckling needs again – and into the future!

More Pendraken coming soon!

December 18, 2019 News from the Dark Horse

We just wanted to take a moment to let folks know that we have committed to stocking more ranges of Pendraken 10mm miniatures, which will include all three genres manufactured by the company, Historical, Fantasy and Science-Fiction.
The down side is that with nearly 4000 product skus, it will take some time and effort to get everything listed on the webstore and stocked, so if you don’t see it, please get in touch via the contact form at the bottom of the webstore site and let us know what you’re interested in (or add it to your wishlist). We’ll try to shift the priorities to make those figures available online as quickly as possible...

Is MicroScale coming to Dark Horse Hobbies?

November 2, 2019 News from the Dark Horse

Well, all I can say at this point is that we are looking into various manufacturers, so if you have a favorite that you would like to buy from us, then please drop them a line letting them know where you would like to buy and drop a line letting us know as well. At least it might help us narrow down the scope of our search for vendors and products. Of course in the United States, GHQ models has been king of this hill for a very long time, but with manufacturers such as Heroics & Ros, Baccus, and Adler to name a few, those days of dominance could be over given the perceived (or real) retraction of GHQ products from local game stores.

On a side note, we did pick up the Knuckleduster 28mm scale Old West products and getting ready for our first Re-Stock order, so a big thank you to all who con...

Unofficial CAV:Strike Operations Force Builder

July 20, 2018 Combat Assault VehicleNews from the Dark Horse

A lot of folks found themselves unable to find the official CAV Army Creator after Combat Assault Vehicle was licensed to Talon Games. It was removed from the Reaper website with the anticipation of Talon Games providing a replacement that matched the new Strike Operations edition. Well after speaking with Jon at Talon Games, we were given permission to create the Unofficial CAV:SO Force Builder 3.x. Since the original source code to CAV 2E was not available to work from, we used our version of the Warlord 2E Army Creator as the basis for building this new tool. We will be taking this opportunity to improve upon the user interface and the data card output as well as some of the functionality during its development.

Work continues as time permits on adding new features that folks have expre...

Getting Started!

June 6, 2016 News from the Dark Horse

Welcome to the Dark Horse Hobbies Blog. After reviewing a number of technical issues I have decided that the Forum should be replaced by a Blog, at least for the foreseeable future, and the things planned, such as product reviews will not likely require a conversation stream for the content to be useful to our customers and visitors. Plus it has become apparent that the available file space on the server may cause a problem down the road if pictures are allowed to be uploaded via the forum. Sorry this has become an issue, but I have had the same hosting provider for over 10 years now and while I really don’t like the new restrictions, there isn’t much I can do about it… at least at this point anyway.

So, without further ado, Let’s see where the Blog option takes us.

Long Live The Hors...
