General news 01/12/16

All onslaught prices have now been reviewed and set i’ve kept the rise as small as practicable so my prices are still cheaper than buying direct from the states so there is that. Three new releases for the range are OTC command, OTC neo ninja and the stygian vampire gliders all can be found in their respective army sections. I have another batch headed my way soon this should include the talos model.

Full re-stock of battlescene designs resin and MDF  buildings are in but several MDF items are in limited supply so snap them up while you can.

Wave 2, my wave 2 re-stock has arrived today so all the original pre-order items will be in stock as soon as I can process the castings and upload to the site. Hope to have everything on sale by the end of next week, just in time for christmas.

Regards John

Onslaught Miniatures News

First the good news my re-stock of onslaught minis is due any day now so I should have everything back in stock, there is another batch still to come which I hope to see this side of christmas.

Second a price increase, over this last year i’ve kept onslaught prices down despite the weakened pound and the reduced buying power this has entailed plus several other factors that have increased overheads. Currently my prices are cheaper than buying direct from the states.

For example: Infantry packs are £6.48 from the states and only £5.75 in my store and Vehicle packs are £10.68 from the states and £9.60 from me a difference of 0.73p and £1.08 respectively. I also have to factor in import duty and VAT on top of this so i’m afraid I need to bring the prices up to the recomended retail price in order to keep the books balanced.

I know everyone hates price rises and i’ve kept them low for as long as I could, once the new stock arrives i’ll be updating the site with the new prices.

So people sorry about this but it has to happen, in order to soften the blow i’ll keep the current prices until the end of the month wednesday november 30th you have until then to buy at current prices.

Regards John

Pre-orders 13/11/16

Due to the imminent arrival of the new pre-order castings i’ve now removed these models from the store the next time they appear will be when they go on general release. I’ve had 19 pre-orders submitted with several being quite large olders so many thanks to all those who supported me in this. There will only  be a limited number of the pre-order models available upon release due to numbers purchased so it will take a while before a reasonable stock level can be achieved.

On other news my wayward onslaught re-stock has landed in the UK again and is on route to customs lets hope there are no issues with it this time and they process the package without delay.

There will also be a small re-stock of Battlescene buildings coming in this week sometime so keep an eye out for those too.

What’s happening 30/10/16

So what’s going on here at vanguard well lets see. Currently have three stock orders in with onslaught including the batch that was shipped back to the states by customs so it will be a little while yet before we have a full inventory of onslaught products again but they are coming.

Re-stock of Battlescene items is under production shipping to me due any day now. Also i’ve got another re-stock of my DiD range ordered and all the new pre-order models should be being cast up starting this week so are on schedule for the release date. A few other projects are ongoing in the background and i’ll be stocking a new range sometime early next year.

Onslaught 05/10/16

My re-stock order for onslaught which has been in customs since mid august for reasons unexplained has been shipped back to the states. As you can imagine i’m not happy about this at all but what can you do. Anyway this means that Don will have to re-ship to me once the parcel is received his end which obviously means a major delay in getting my re-stock. Some items are already sold out and others are in low numbers we are trying to speed up shipments but again it’s usually customs which cause major delays.

I have no idea what the issue with this shipment was and why they returned it to sender as no explanation was forth coming. So sorry people it will be sometime before stock levels on onslaught’s range return to normal. Patience please as we try to rectify the situation.
