New Rules and Salute Special Offer

This is a great time to be a 15mm SF gamer, there’s a plethora of great figures and there are also many excellent sets of rules to use them with. We already have one of these, Legionnaire Games’ Platoon Leader from their Strike Legion series, and for Salute we’ll be carrying not one, but two more. From Poland we’re extremely pleased to have a number of copies of Assault Publishing’s PMC 2640 rules, and if you want to see how these work, Marcin at AP has put up a free download with the core rule mechanisms for you to try.

PMC2640

And if that wasn’t enough, we’ll also be stocking Robin Fitton’s Gruntz ruleset which has gathered a lot of positive reviews and feedback (I think Robin ambushed me while drunk at Stoke Rochford!). You can read much more about Gruntz on Robin’s dedicated website.

Gruntz

Both sets of rules will retail at £20.00.

And so to a special offer at Salute; if you buy any set of 15mm rules (Gruntz, PMC 2640 or Platoon Leader), we’ll give you 10% off any 15mm vehicles or figures that you purchase at the same time, or if you buy any two of the three sets, we’ll make that 20% off any accompanying vehicles or figures. That’s a great chance to snap up a set (or two) of rules and save money on the models to play them with.

The Final Countdown

This is it – by the time you read this there will be less than one day remaining in the sale. 24 hours of 15% off everything on the website (well, nearly everything). Don’t miss out, it’ll be a while to the next one!

Countdown1

Two’s Company

Two days. 48 hours. Just enough time to finally take the plunge into Aeronef (go on, you know you want to), especially at 15% off. Just take a look at these wonderful British models painted and photographed by Robin Fitton (of which lots more photos soon), surely that’s enough to tempt anyone?

Countdown2

Four Days To Go…

The sale now has under 100 hours to run. If you wanted to pick up some of our remarkably popular British spaceships, or anything else, you need to get in there pretty quickly.

Countdown4

Five Days and Counting…

A gentle reminder that our New Year sale has but five days left to run, so time is running out to grab a bargain. There’s 15% off all Celtos, and all the other ranges, until midnight Friday GMT.

Happy New Year !

We hope you all had a splendid Christmas and are recovering well from the excesses of New Year’s Eve.

2014

A few hours later than expected (I was a bit under the weather yesterday which kept me away from the keyboard), we’re happy to announce our New Year Sale. As in previous years, it’s a straightforward 15% discount off everything that we make – no minimum order, just 15% off everything. There are one or things it doesn’t apply to – essentially anything that we don’t make ourselves (so dice and bases, any rulebooks, the Shapeways range) on which our margins are much narrower.

The sale will run until the end of the month – midnight GMT on January 31st – so there’s no rush, you have a month to get your orders in.

*UPDATE* – if you’re a regular visitor to our site, you might want to refresh your browser (hit the F5 key or -> reload/refresh on most Windows machines) just before you add the first item to your shopping basket. The shopping cart code is carried in a Java file which can be cached (ie an old version retained) by your browser and in this case the discounts won’t be applied correctly – hopefully refreshing the page will force this file to be updated. We are checking every order that comes in and if this does happen to you then don’t worry, we will manually refund the correct discount to you as soon as we can. I’m on the hunt for a better technical solution to fix this problem since it’s happened before.

Have a great 2014 !

Christmas is a-Coming

Xmas 2013

So that’s it for Christmas orders – the last posting date for first class mail has gone, and we won’t be shipping out any more orders until the New Year now. The website will remain open, but we won’t process any orders for a few days. However, if you’re stuck for a gaming present, there’s still time to get one of our Gift Vouchers which are backed by PayPal and can be used at any time against orders from our website.

Onto another topic, seasoned Brigade watchers will have noticed something missing this year … normally we have a Christmas sale running throughout December (give or take, we like to vary it a bit to keep you on your toes) but this year you may be wondering where it is.

Fear not, we haven’t cancelled it, merely delayed. For various reasons, mostly to do with our work schedules, we’ve held it back – we didn’t want to launch a sale then not be in a position to be able to fulfil the orders (and it does get busy). So this time we’re going to run a more traditional New Year Sale, running throughout January, when you can spend the money that Great Aunt Flo gave you as a Christmas present (or the money that you got from returning that horrid jumper that Great Aunt Flo thought you’d really like …).

Full details will follow in due course (December 31st probably), but the format of the sale is likely to follow previous years. And, of course, the aforementioned Gift Vouchers will be valid during the sale too, so if you buy one for someone they’ll get even more for their money. In the meantime, have a great Christmas and work out your want lists ready for January !
