Price Recap

Lets talk Fetches:

Zendikar fetches are trending on a downward slope, with both Scalding Tarn and Misty Rainforest dropping to £35 each, along with Verdant Catacombs and Arid Mesa down at £24. Arid mesa brings up the rear at a mere £18.

The Khans fetches are also on a dipping trend but the changes aren’t quite as noticeable. The blue lands being hit the hardest with Polluted Delta now at £14.99 and Flooded Strand at £13.49; a fair way from their £20 and £18 débuts. Wooded Foothills and Windswept Heath have both ever so slightly nudged down to £11.49. To drop it all off Bloodstained Mire hits £10.49.

As far as the shinys are concerned both Foothills and Heath stayed level at £37.50, and Bloodstained Mire dropped down to £30 for a foil copy. However the rich get richer with both Foil Delta and Foil Strand going up to £59.99 and 49.99 respectively.

Fall Out PTKoT:

After the price hike due to Pro Tour performances last weekend (won by Ari Lax with Abzan Midrange) things have started to settle down again. From the winning deck itself Siege Rhino, Wingmate Roc, Sorin Solemn Visitor have levelled back out now. The Big Rhino settling at £6.99, Wingmate at £13.99, and Sorin solemnly sitting at £19.99

The Dimir control decks played successfully by the likes of Ivan Floch, Stanislav Cifca and Andrew Cuneo featured Pearl Lake Ancient, Prognostic Sphinx, Perilous Vault and Dig Through Time. Vault and Dig seem to be the best control cards in the format for the time being, with Vault coming in at £6.99 and Dig at £11.99 holding their price. Prog Sphinx, which has been sat as a £1 rare for a long time is creeping up a little weighing in at £1.99 for the meanwhile with a reasonable chance to go up if it keeps seeing success. Lastly Pearl Lake Ancient has fallen from favour back down to £3.49

Other Movers and Shakers

A few other notable cards have shifted. Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker himself is down to £26.99, Jeskai Ascendancy after all the hype its got in modern and its Top 8 finish in standard at thePro Tour is down at £4.49. Anafenza, after being featured in successful Abzhan aggro decks has settled at £7.99 for the time being. It is not a great week for some of the other Kahns though; Sidisi down at £5.99, and Surrak Dragonclaw at £3.99.

Lastly, after seeing some success over the opening few weeks and being used by a few high profile players at the Pro Tour (not to any spectacular finishes) the green devotion crew are also on the long list of cards to be hit this week. Rattcleclaw Mystic is now at £4.49 after spiking up to £7, and Hooded Hydra has dipped down to £3.49. See the Unwritten the only winner here rising up to £4.49.

Goblin Rabblemaster seems to slowly be falling out of favour; several teams choosing not to play it in their Jeskai decks. I would not be suprised to see this guy stumble a bit from his hefty £17.99 price tag.

That’s about it for this week and its not a lot to brag about with drops all across the board. Not a great week for the standard stock market, maybe we’ll get some shake ups this weekend. Thanks for taking the time to read this article, and I’ll see you next week.

Our number 1 selling product of 2012 the Tyrant Army Figure Case is back in stock.

I thought rather then me explaining why it’s our best seller I trawled the internet and found reviews our customers had left instead.

Review by (Faeit 212)

Tabletop Tyrant is a company that makes cases that are affordable, easy to use, and durable. I had the opportunity to take a look at the three cases, including the most popular Tyrant.

The first thing I noticed is that the canvas is durable, the straps and clasps are strong. There are three different cases that Tabletop Tyrant makes, with both the Tyrant and the Dreadnought being customizable with different tray selections. The online build a case is very easy to use, and takes only a few moments do.

The Kingmaker holds 4 trays, and sells for around $45USD or £28.70. With 4 standard infantry trays, it easily holds 144 models.

The Tyrant holds a large amount of models, and I can see it easily holding 1500pts or more of 40k. The top/side loading makes it easy to get in and out of, and I can see this being the staple of a gamers cases for his army. It holds up to 8 standard trays, but of course this case is large enough for the vehicle trays, and in the video I have 2 large vehicle trays in the case, alongside two standard infantry. The Tyrant retails for around $65 USD or £41.00.

The Dreadnought is the same size as the Tyrant, is very similar with the exception that it is armoured for extra protection and comes with extra pockets along the outside and a nice full sized pocket on the inside (that fits hardcover codices just perfect. The Dreadnought is currently selling around $108USD or £65.

The number one thing that will make you take a good look at these cases is the price. Literally for just over a $100 USD you can get yourself a Tyrant and a Kingmaker. One to hold your larger models, and the other to hold your infantry. The construction is solid, and I think that if you are looking for a case, that these should be on your list to take a look at.

Below is an overview of the company and their cases, including word that they are working on a new 4 layer case that will retail for £20.00.

Review – Tabletop Tyrant Kingmaker Figure Case

November 2, 2013

Tabletop Tyrant Kingmaker Case

Tired of hauling around your miniatures in cardboard or plastic boxes?

I know I was. Enter the figure cases from Tabletop Tyrant, available over at Gifts for Geeks. The case in the picture above is the Kingmaker case from Tabletop Tyrant, which is the smaller (or “half-sized”) case for £28.70 (around US$ 45,-), configured however you like it.


#1 – Build Your Own Kingmaker Figure Case

Kingmaker Figure Case Configuration

For me, the biggest obstacle I usually come across trying to decide on what case I want, and how to configure it, is that most online shops I see make it fiendishly hard (for first-time customers at least) to figure out online how cases and foam go together.

Not so Tabletop Tyrant. They got a very cool, dead simple little tool on their website that lets you fill up your figure case with different foam options. That tool alone makes Tabletop Tyrant a contender IMO. Also, one set of foam trays is included in the price!


#2 – The Tabletop Kingmaker Figure Case

Kingmaker Figure Case for Miniatures with FoamAs said, the Kingmaker is smaller than Tabletop Tyrant’s Tyrant case (!). The Kingmaker hold about 4 layers of infantry foam instead of 8 for the Tyrant. That is still more than enough for an average 1500 point Warhammer 40k army  or a 50 – 80 point Warmachine force.

For me personally, it’s a great way to store my “smaller” games such as DreadBall or X-Wing.

The case opens on the top and comes with more straps and handles than you could ever need. It’s obviously not a hard case, so it may not be the figure case for packing miniatures for air travel. What I liked about it, however, is how lightweight the case is.


#3 – The Foam Trays

The Kingmaker Figure Case by Tabletop Tyrant

I mostly filled the case with infantry and “”pick & plug” foam trays. The latter (see above) is really essential for storing more oddly shaped miniatures, as you can plug out the little foam boxes to create custom trays that fit your personal collection.

For a foam tray for X-Wing miniatures, as above, I would recommend using the 35mm deep pick & plug foam. I also have the thinner 28mm foam, which is great for infantry models “lying down”.

For more 3-dimensional models, the 35mm really add much-needed depth to make sure the miniatures – such as the Tie Fighter – are completely inside the foam.

Tabletop Tyrant

The (28mm depth) infantry tray works perfect for my (smaller) Mantic DreadBall miniatures. The size of the pre-cut slots for miniatures may be a bit tight for larger, more elaborate HQ-style figures, especially those “heroic-scale” miniatures from Games Workshop.

The Chaos Sorcerer above doesn’t fully fit in. Again, it’s probably a good idea to mix standard infantry foam trays with pick & plug foam trays for the more unwieldy miniatures.

Not to mention the specialized foam trays for Tanks, Cavalry, etc.. .


#4 – Verdict

Not much I can add.

For less than the cost of a Warhammer 40K Codex, I’m now able to store and transport most of my “side-game” miniatures collection (which admittedly has been “sidelining” my GW-hobby for a few months now) in one conveniently sized, well-made and super-light-weight figure case.

I love the way the foam allows me to match the interiour layout to my miniatures collections. I know there are foam variants out there that are custom-cut to things like X-Wing Miniatures, but they never seem to have exactly the layout that I need. Flexibility makes this one the winner!

The only thing to look out for, especially for storing larger GW models or 35mm Miniatures (Kingdom Death!) is that the slots in the infantry foam tray may be on the small side.
