I've known about Hairy Tarantula peripherally for almost a year now. Thinking it was just another hobby shop; Oh the time I have wasted! I was in the area and tasked my chauffeur (gainfully employed girlfriend) to bring me round to the store front. Good god I was stunned with the place. The store occupied the entire basement of a small strip mall. It is jam packed front to back with all things nerd.
In my hunt for miniatures I discovered multiple BUCKETS filled to the brim with pewter miniatures (produced before I was born) selling for a couple bucks each. Racks and racks of blister packs are framed by boxes and boxes stuffed with more blister packs! I was in heaven.
On account of the lady boss waiting in the snowy tundra outside I felt a bit rushed. When I return on my own I will no doubt spend hours scouring every nook and cranny of that store, but for now I will share with you my booty from the first excursion. I only really got a chance to sift through a small sample of their miniature horde so all of the models I picked up are from a single company dubbed Celtos: a long dead producer of fantasy miniatures set in a Britannia setting.
