      Alas, no. We are however on FaceBook, and we do post announcement on TMP, on the Lead Adventure Forum, and on Star Ranger’s Starship Combat News site as well. You will find direct links to all of these and more resources here:

      Further, you’re always welcome to reach out to us directly via the Metal Express site as you have done. There will be some new announcements about Where We’re Going and What We’re Doing as the year rolls along, so do keep an eye on us!

    Is the Pteradon miniature the pre or post 2003 design?

    • Lee Erickson May 16, 2017 at 12:59 am

      Now that is an interesting question, as I have only ever been aware of there being one (1) design for the Pteradon miniature, which is the one we offer currently, the same one that was released back when the ASP Technocracy supplement was first released back in circa 1998.

      So as far as I know, its the only version ever offered:

    I see the dale ended early… code came up as expired a few hours ago.

    • Sheldon Greaves June 1, 2017 at 12:54 am

      Odd… the coupon is definitely set for 31 May so it may be a time zone thing. I’ve kludged it so it should be back up now. If not, yell!

      • Marc June 1, 2017 at 2:05 am

        Ok sheldon
        I am home with a cart full of silent death and the coupon is still expired…

  5. Marc June 1, 2017 at 2:06 am

    Yes i am yelling! It is 10: 07 pm est here

    • Sheldon Greaves June 1, 2017 at 2:18 am

      Thanks for the note. I’m officially confused; I reset the coupon to expire on 01 June, but you’re still getting an expired notice.

      Let me create a new coupon and see if that works. Stand by…

      • Sheldon Greaves June 1, 2017 at 2:20 am

        OK, try again with this coupon: springsale2_2017.

  7. Marc June 1, 2017 at 2:24 am

    Thank you for your quick response!

    • Sheldon Greaves June 1, 2017 at 2:57 am

      My pleasure!

    Hi, is it possible to get an update on my order #1170?

    • Lee Erickson June 16, 2017 at 5:06 am

      Absolutely! I will forward this to Sheldon immediately…

  9. Sheldon June 20, 2017 at 8:10 pm

    Hey Phil,

    Just heard from the fulfillment center, order #1170 is in transit. Let us know if/when it arrives.

    Sorry it was so late in shipping; it should have gone out sooner for reasons I haven’t yet discerned.

    • Phil Redpath June 20, 2017 at 8:14 pm

      Popular sale I guess!

      • Phil Redpath July 4, 2017 at 5:34 pm

        Still no sign!

        • Lee Erickson July 6, 2017 at 8:16 pm

          I just alerted Sheldon. He is contacting our caster to verify that the order was shipped (and when). Stand by for further… we’ll get this sorted one way or another…

  10. Phil Redpath July 14, 2017 at 3:48 pm

    Sheldon as silent as the void of space huh?

    • Phil Redpath July 14, 2017 at 3:55 pm

      That came off more smarmy than I intended, but I am wondering about the status of my order.

      • Lee Erickson July 15, 2017 at 5:16 am


        we appreciate your frustration; we share it. The challenge here is that we like many a small company rely upon a third party caster, in this case RAFM Miniatures (with whom we’ve done business for years with rarely a hitch). The metal minis all ship from Ontario direct to the customer, so when there’s a hiccup, it’s Canada Post at whose mercy we find ourselves.

        As it is, we’re still waiting for an answer from RAFM as to the specific date they shipped your order. As soon as we get an answer, I promise you we’ll contact you at once with that information.

        For the record, we rarely have issues with orders being lost. The biggest headache is the relative sloth of Canada Post, something over which we have no control. So what we’re going to do going forward now that we have compiled a growing history of customer orders, is see if we can graph an estimated time of arrival from Ontario based upon the location of our customers past, comparing date of shipment to known date of arrival.At least from that we can have a rough baseline to use to advise customers beforehand how long they may have to wait for a metal minis order to arrive on their doorstep.

        Regardless, we will get you your goods, one way or another.
