General Stock Situation Report

The stock situation is currently in flux, due to the large number of orders received over the last two months demand has outstripped supply. Covid 19 has caused huge delays on both manufacture and resupply and I don’t see that changing any time soon. I do have items trickling in all the time but overall re-stock supply is slow so please be aware of that.

I do have on order around 60 moulds to be run to bring the stock levels back to some semblance of normality but I have no idea when any of these will start arriving so its a waiting game I’m afraid.

Expected in this coming week will be another batch of the very popular Affray set B and a few other Elites sets will be back up amongst others. I also have in now several new release items that will start making an appearance in the coming weeks.

Plastic strips bases are also here and will be back up in store as soon as I can find time to count and bag some.

Finally I’d like to announce a shutdown period that will most likely be at the end of this month nominally for a week. This will mean I will not be accepting or processing new orders during that time. Reasons are many but I need to step back and take a break from processing orders in order to tidy up loose ends, take stock of the business situation and inventory remaining stock amongst other things.

Kind regards John


Ordering has now been enabled again, thank you all for your patience and understanding. I may be required to switch off ordering from time to time in the future but I will always notify you all here and on social media when that is the case.

Regards John


Ordering will be re-activated tomorrow, I have caught up with packing and shipped all outstanding orders and I am replenishing stock as much as possible before going live again. Thank you all for your continued support and understanding it means a great deal to me.

Kind regards John


Due to a large influx of orders I have had to take the drastic move to temporarily disable ordering on the site. This is the only way I can gain the time necessary to catch up and get everyone’s orders packed and shipped out. At the moment I just cannot catch up, the current backlog keeps building up and it’s impossible for me to keep on top of it.

I will enable ordering again as soon as possible.

Kind regards John

Status Report

Hi everyone just thought I’d let you know that vanguard is still accepting and processing orders and I can still ship globally as the post office is still accepting foreign shipments.

Nothing much to report at this time other than I do have more items for release this month and into next month too, but the release schedule has obviously been shot to hell with the global virus crisis situation. Also this means a much slower re-stock service from my casters.

Stay safe people regards John
