Is Geekhome trust worthy?

Postby RoughRoman » Sun Jan 14, 2018 4:41 pm

Hello Warhammer Generals.
I have taken up an interest in collecting minis and am just starting out.
So fresh to it that i haven't even bought minis.
This brings me to the question of whether the online retail shop named GeekHome
is trust worthy. In other words: Have any of you, the community, bought products from them?
And if so: Were you satisfied? Any Problems?
Thank you for your time.

On another note.
I have all the supplies I'll need to model and paint except for primer.
Could someone Recommend a place to get some and if so what particular type of primer?

I don't know it. I can suggest you pandemonium. Very reliable and with reasonable prices.
Deliver trough postnet, meaning in 2/3 business days the package is at closest postnet office.
If you order more than a certain amount (I think is 1500 rand) postage is free.

I regularly use Pandemonium, and they're really good.

decent pricing, and they postnet stuff to you which makes life really simple. They also are prepared to source stuff for you if it's not typically carried, which is very cool. Lastly they're one of the few places around that can get you Privateer Press goodies, so if that's your need then dive in.

hey roughRoman

ive used both geekhome(outerlimits) and Pandemonium, both are legit.

where are you based? if you're in the pretoria, outerlimits works well for orders and pickups (avoiding post costs). it all depends on what system you're buying. between those 2 stores you'll get what you want at a decent price.

Welcome to the hobby.
Check out www.tabletopsouthafrica.com for a listing of all stockists and various gaming clubs etc in SA.
As for geekhome, yes they are legit.

Geekhome is legit, I have never had trouble with them.
The Batcave Comics and Games in Durban also provides excellent service and I highly recommend it.

From my experience pandemonium is decently priced and the service is really good. I use them when I want something that is not in stock and they order it from games workshop for me. Also a lovely shop to just hang out at. We sit and paint there regularly.

Shop around for pricing. But if Geekhome has it in stock you get it the next day. I've received stuff on the same day I ordered, which offsets the price difference imo
