Freezywater Stock Update

The folks at Freezywater will be taking a well earned break for most of April. This means there may be a delay in supplying some books & flag sheets as I won't be able to rely on them to fill any gaps in my stock.

At the moment I hold decent stocks of the most popular items so I don't anticipate too many problems but then again you never know.

If you want to avoid a possible delay please order before Monday, 01 April. Normal service will resume at the end of April.

Mirliton Stock Update

It's now over a year since my commercial relationship with Mirliton ended and my last stock arrived. Since the January update below I have sold a decent amount of my once considerable 15 mm stock so an update is in order.

I currently have the following in stock: medievals (348) and ancients (37). I also have decent stocks of 25 mm spare heads and weapons (207).

Naturally, some ranges have proved more popular than others. Both the Swiss Burgundian Wars and the Medieval Russians ranges have only a few codes left. In contrast the Medieval Italian range remains well stocked. I'm surprised as the figures are great and ideal for the Crusades as well as Western Europe.

I have had a few customers who've delayed their purchases only to find the packs they wanted had sold out. The message is simple: get the packs you need while you can and avoid disappointment.

Finally, customers looking to place large orders should get in touch by email as there may be a discount to be had.

Royal Mail Price Increases

On Monday 25 March the Royal Mail will increase their prices. This now seems to happen every year at this time. As a consequence I will be implementing new delivery charges on Friday 22 March mainly affecting parcels in the lower weight bands.

At the moment it looks like I may be able to hold most of the UK economy delivery prices bar the lowest band (which hasn't changed for two years) but I will be making greater use of second class delivery.

The lower Airmail bands will all increase by £0.50 as will the minimum delivery charge for overseas orders. However we will continue to implement our fair postage policy for airmail delivery for orders over £10.00.

If you were thinking of ordering, especially from overseas, you have just over three weeks to save on delivery.
