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


I have received a lot of messages asking after shipping outside of the UK and if that is still possible, all I can say is it was this morning but that could change at any time. Vanguard can still take and process orders until stock runs out or boxes so if you wish to submit an order please do so. Just be aware that it may be a while before I can ship them out. As I’m a one man operation I’m pretty well self isolated for most of the week anyway and can run things from home.

Stay safe people and hopefully I’ll see you on the other side.

For Your Information.

Just in case anyone’s wondering vanguard is still up and running and still shipping whilst the local post office remains open.

Stay safe people.
