Mini War Gaming

Hey guys, don't worry, the Friday FAQ will be on its way (technically due in 2 hours, but it won't be until later Friday evening, probably) but I wanted to mention something first...

Warhammer 40k is an expensive hobby and all of us look for discounts. I figure I could help out by pointing you to Miniwargaming.com for those of you that don't know about it. It's a great store, large selection and customer service that parallels Games Workshop itself. Not only that, but they have amazing tutorials and loads of other stuff (they even carry neodynium magnets!). They are very community-driven and a great showcase of that is how Matt, one of the store's founders, recently donated $85 to The Astro Mag's most recent contest as prizes. He contacted me because he loved the mag and wanted to help out!

Now there are plenty of online stores that offer discounts large than Miniwargaming's 10%, but you definitely don't get the awesome customer service nor the really cool "points" idea where you get points for whatever you buy that can be then traded in for store credit. Pretty awesome, if you ask me.

So you may have noticed that new little GIF I made at the top that links to miniwargaming.com. Alex and I decided, because we like the store so much, to become Affiliates. Basically, we link to their store and anyone that clicks on our links (peppered throughout this post, like here, and at the top of the page) and purchases something from them within a year (as long as you don't delete your cookies) we get paid 8% of whatever the cost was of the item you bought. That money can then be fed into our "Terran Forge fund" which will help us to support prizes for any contests we'd like to hold (which there are alot, Alex and I just don't have the spare funds to give you guys something cool- hopefully that will change!).

So if you think about buying some new 40k stuff, follow any miniwargaming.com link on Terran Forge because then YOU get discounts on your stuff and we get money to give prizes right back to YOU. It's a win-win situation!

Friday FAQ will be up sometime tomorrow, so look forward to that!
