IMPORTANT POST - PLEASE READ! Items stolen from Trader at PAWS 2018

Not my normal post, but I have just found out that a small wargames business was targeted at PAWS Wargames show. Roughly £400+ of stock was stolen. This is by no way any reflection on the PAWS club who must be horrified that this has happened.

The Trader concerned was Gydran Miniatures Studio and the items taken include:

Seven boxes of the large sets - 3 x heavy support, 2 x breacher and 2 x crisis units.
Approximately 20 Blisters of various types from the dweorg and space critter range as well as several raider and space critter small sets.

The breacher and heavy weapon sets have only just been made available and therefore numbers out there will be few.

I'd like to ask the wargames community to be vigilant for these items and if seen please contact Gydran Miniatures Studios. It would be appreciated if other bloggers share this post and make this hobby an unsafe place for thieves.

More Details from Gydran Miniatures Studio

Good morning, everyone.
As some of you may know we were at PAW 2018 this year for the second year in a row. It was great to see some familiar faces and catch up with some of the amazing members of our miniature and games industry here in the UK.
Unfortunately something happened during the show that somewhat soured the experience for us. On the Sunday it came to light that over £400 worth of stock was stolen in one go on the Saturday in the form of an orange and black plastic crate being removed from the stall while the staff were being distracted and several packs of resin bases being removed in what we now believe to be the same theft. We are pretty sure we know who the culprits are and it has been reported to the show organisers who are disgusted that it has happened.
We would ask any of you at the show that saw anything to let us know. Also if you see any of our products being sold online other than via Bad Squiddo Games, the ebay seller zmm-online or our webstore at to please report it to us. There is no camera surveillance in the hall where we were and for the first time ever doing shows we didn't have our normal security camera up (we were very busy and it was forgotten).
The theft consisted of several of our large Elsor-Varo sets including Heavy Support, Breachers and Crisis units. At least 20 blisters of assorted types and several small sets including the Dweorg Raiders and Space Critters.
It's never a nice thing to have anything stolen. We are a small company and the theft has left us in disbelief that someone could do that. We urge you all to spread the word and share this as far and wide as possible. Lets create enough heat under this that the thieves find it near impossible to sell their ill gotten goods.
If you are the thieves and reading this, if you return the goods to the PAW venue we will not take it any further. However, if we catch you we will prosecute you to the full extent of the law.
Thanks guys, and remember to share as far and wide as you can!

Below is an example of the type of product taken.
