    Just to let everyone now that if you have had issues with the basket on my site not allowing multiple different products to be pre ordered at the same time that the errant code that was causing the problem has been identified and banished.

    So multiple different items can now be ordered at the same time.

    Sorry for any inconvenience caused regards John

    Received confirmation yesterday that my onslaught order has been shipped I expect stock on the shelves before the end of the month. The troublemaker order has been submitted and passed on to the casters so I expect this range on the shelves early to mid november.

    Cheers

    I’ve payed the import duty on the Onslaught shipment and have collected some very heavy boxes. As stated earlier on my site I will be sorting through this lot tomorrow and starting to box up the pre-orders to send out during the week.

    At long last I have stock on the shelves.

    Thanks again for your patience and support.

    Yes sir indeed I do.

    I have Avians, OTC, Stygians, Legion, Hellborn and Sisters in my collection already, I was a customer before I started this venture and will be adding even more stuff to my mountain of metal in the future.

    What can I say i’m a fan of the range.

    I’m pleased to announce the arrival of most of the Defeat in Detail range. I will be re-bagging it all over the weekend and then will start picking those orders that are already in.

    Thanks for your patience guys the wait is nearly over.

    More orders have been shipped today.

    Two more boxes of DiD models have arrived today so I hope to be shipping out all back orders by the end of the week with the exception of those requiring plastic stands which are not here yet.

    Sent out 18 more parcels today which has made a really big hole in the back orders, I still have 12 or so waiting on onslaught stock to come in and I have a few more ready for shipping when I get to the postie again.

    If you received notice that your order is completed then it means your models are on the way. Please note that I have no plastic stands or flight bases in stock at this time so these will follow at a later date.

    Regards John

    Hey Steve those are looking good.

    Due to demand from many customers I have started to reduce the number of models in the DiD packs to better reflect what most people use them for and to reduce costs to customers who do not require large numbers of figures.

    Most packs have around half the numbers previously held at half the original price. Hope this helps those looking for a smaller initial outlay when starting a new force and will also help those just needing a few extra units for existing armies.

    So i’ve done the aircraft packs with most having two planes in them now and the novan elite range has been done too. I will be doing more like this as the week progresses.

    On other news i’ve received my imprort duty demand from customs for the remaining first batch onslaught order so I hope to have these by the end of the week. Items include the sisters tanks and additional hellborn releases. Also Don informs me that he has received and is processing my next big batch of onslaught goodies so with luck these may reach me before the holidays.

    20 plus parcels and half a dozen packets shipped today this has cleared all outstanding orders and the plastic stands owed.

    I have a few new orders to process and there are also some onslaught packs to follow on once they are back in stock. It’s been a really busy week getting this lot sorted but finally I have caught up.

    Cheers

    My other onslaught package arrived this morning they got split up during transit so after putting aside the back ordered items I’ve updated the inventory which is now showing the correct numbers available of each onslaught item. I’m completely sold out of Sisters Themis packs already but i’ve ordered another 45 packs as part of my next re-stock which is already being processed, these should be in during January some time.

    I will be sorting out the back orders and follow on items today and should be able to post them out tomorrow.

    Hope to be adding a range of laser cut MDF buildings from Battlescene Designs to the store soon too.

    All orders to date have been processed and dispatched. I will soon be taking a break for the holidays but the site will still be able to take orders which I will attend to as soon as I return. The email account will still be monitored so if you have any questions I will try to answer them in a timely fashion.

    During January I should have a re-stock of Onslaught and Troublemaker minis arriving and i will be putting the Battlescene Designs MDF buildings up on the site. We also hope to have more base designs coming out shortly too so look out for those and the round plastic bases should be back in stock within a few weeks time.

    I’d just like to wish all my customers and their families a very happy christmas holiday and a prosperous new year, your support has been wonderful and I can’t thank you all enough.

    Once again thank you everyone regards, John

    Official announcement of a change of ownership.

    After a lengthy negotiation period and the exchange of a large sum of money I am pleased to announce that the defeat in detail range of models formerly of Troublemaker Games fame are now owned my yours truly as of yesterday evening. This means they are now an in house product for vanguard miniatures and that I will be able to keep this range available indefinately. I have several plans for this range including army deals and the like and hope to start adding additional models at a later date. Oh the round plastic bases and a few other items have also been included in this business deal too so availability should be fairly good on these products also.

    Woot on the not 40k range. You might be going to cost me lots of money, I saw Dr Mike painting them at Derby last year and they are gorgeous minis.

    The prices are a little steep for my budget. How are your shipping costs? I love the look of the Tokyo faction.

    All prices are fair in fact i’m selling onslaught at a lower price than you can get them from onslaughts site. The DiD range is pretty much the same as when being sold by TMG too. Shipping costs can be read in the appropriate section on my site.

    Cheers

    Due to life issues for the owner and a broken cutter that has just been fixed my battlescene scenery order is way behind schedule and will not be in for a little while yet, rest assured they will be in store eventually alongside more acrylic strip bases.

    The Pyrkol gaming markers have just arrived yesterday and are now released, I like them very colourful.

    One other thing i’m waiting on is information from the casters before I can submit a defeat in detail top up order so a few items are going out of stock. Hopefully things will be sorted soon and I can get an order submitted to re-stock these items. Please subscribe to any models you are waiting on so that you are informed once they are again available, cheers.
