Backorders

Some of you may have noticed that the backorder feature is no longer available so I thought i’d explain why. Basically it’s cost to the business, due to the time it takes to receive re-stock orders not just from the USA but the UK as well i’m ending up with rather a lot of backordered items with many orders that are coming in having at least one backordered item on them. In order to not delay shipment of these orders i’ve been sending them out and then sending the out of stock item at a later date. Obviously these follow on shipments are at my expense and i’m afraid with so many orders being handled this way shipping is costing me double, what with the extra packaging and postage costs not to mention the extra time too. So i’ve had to remove the backorder feature for the time being to save money and time. I hope this change will not effect anyone unduly and apologies if it does but I can’t sustain doubling up on postage it dosen’t make good business sense.

All backorders currently placed will be fufilled once my shipments turn up but after that only in stock items will be available to purchase. The DiD re-stock will put most items back in store with only a few models needing to be ordered and the Onslaught shipment is a little delayed but should be here by early next month.

On the way

My next shipment from Onslaught is on the way and I expect a top up order from TMG any day now. Battlescene Designs will begin manufacture of another batch of strip bases sometime this week and he should be shipping a stock of buildings within days.

Bases

I have acquired another small batch of round plastic bases and should be getting a lot more in the near future. On the subject of bases the acrylic strip bases have been a best seller with over 50 packs sold in a small timeframe and i’m looking to have more manufactured as soon as possible. One problem with these is the cost of the acrylic sheet itself which is rather expensive which means that when the next batch comes in the price will unfortunately have to go up a little. This is the only option if I want to keep these bases as a viable product for the business.

 

Gallery

Added a gallery to the site which will have continual updates as I receive images. I’m looking for images of fully painted and finished models from my stocked ranges to display for everyone to see the potential of these models and be inspired by your efforts so please let me know if you’d like to contribute and i’ll get it sorted.

I look forward to seeing your pictures, cheers.

Stock situation

Just a quick update on stock shipments, I expect notification of dispatch of a new Onslaught order at the end of this week and a top up TMG order is imminent. Also expected very soon is the first batch of Battlescene MDF and resin terrain features so keep an eye out for those. And a new plastic bases shipment is on the way.

Happy new year everyone.
