Defeat in Detail

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.

Onslaught inventory update

Added all of the latest batch of onslaught stock to the store so I have everything back in stock again, well at least for a little while anyway. The price rises for onslaught’s ranges are now in effect, the continued strong dollar against the pound has been the cause here and i’ve compromised on the actual prices charged to keep the cost to customers as low as is practicable and keep steady stable prices. So although the prices have gone up they are still lower than they should  be.

Dispatched another 20+ parcels today with most of the onslaught backorders included. First batch of Battlescene buildings should be here soon there has been a delay on these due to illness and a broken laser cutter.

They are here

My latest Onslaught shipment has arrived a day early, this batch is mostly infantry oriented and i’ll be sorting through it and packing those remaining backorders for shipping by the end of the week. Once that’s sorted the store will be updated with all the new arrivals.

On a less palatable note the onslaught range will see a slight increase in prices starting during this week it shouldn’t be to much only pence (which does mount up over hundreds of packs) but the strong dollar to the pound exchange rate means I need to adjust prices to reflect what i’m buying them in at now. So if you want to take advantage of the current prices you best do so very soon. This is the problem with importing from outside the EU every order I make from the states is at a different exchange rate. It goes up and down on a daily bases so I need to factor that in when ordering and also when tweaking the prices in store. Anyway i’ll be averaging out prices so that they will remain stable for as long as possible.

Sorry about this people but I need to keep imports viable for the business.

Email alerts

A new in store feature i’ve had added is email alerts, if you want to know when an out of stock item is back in store you can choose to sign up to an automated email which will tell you when the product is again available. This feature is in place instead of the backorders feature which was just creating to many problems for me.

I hope this will be a good compromise between the two options.



Today I shipped 25 + orders including all the DiD backordered items bar one so if you have had novan affray, winter cavalry and or royal marines you have been waiting on they should be on the way to you now. Thanks for your continued patience on awaiting the re-stock it has been appreciated.

Next up should be the Onslaught backorders once the stock arrives. Also I will be putting in an order for all the new releases this weekend so they should be in a few weeks after the US release date.
