Merry Christmas ! We hope you’re all having a great day. Don’t worry, we aren’t working today – this post was scheduled several days ago …
After a bit of a hiatus, we have a new release again. This is the resculpted 15mm EuroFed Garibaldi heavy tank, which brings a touch of heavy fire support to the lighter Montsabert tanks.
SF15-402 Garibaldi Heavy Tank …… £10.00
As you can see from the comparison below, the Garibaldi is substantially bigger than the Montsabert tank.
#1 in our limited series of Main Battle Tanks named after popular biscuits. British gamers of a certain vintage will no doubt recall Alexei Sayle publicising it for us thirty-odd years ago …
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 !
Good news for gamers in Europe – we have a new stockist of our 15mm items, Assault Publishing in Lublin, Poland.
They’ve initially taken stock of our full range of 15mm buildings, along with a smaller selection of vehicles and figures. They even have one or two new and upcoming models that aren’t on our website yet !
The promised additional deliveries have now arrived and we are now up to stock with more items from our Shapeways range. We have the ten most popular items in stock and available to order from our website, which completes our initial stock levels. We’ll see how well these sell before deciding whether or not to expand the range of items we carry.
This is also a good time to post a reminder about last posting dates for Christmas – the dates for overseas orders have long gone, but there’s just about time to get orders in for the UK. You’ll need to get your order to us by
mid-day 4pm GMT on Wednesday 18th December, and we’ll do our best to get our order to you in time for Christmas Day.
Recently we’ve experimented with stocking a small number of from our Shapeways Store items and selling from our stand at shows. This has proved to be successful enough that we’ve decided to try keeping more stock of the most popular items and making them available by mail order from the website. The first stock items arrived yesterday and we’ve wasted no time in getting them on the website.
To start with we have just three items in the store, but we’re expecting more stock of other items early next week so keep an eye on the page over the next couple of weeks.
These items can be ordered normally from the website along with anything else you require. We will do our best to keep decent stocks of them, but if we’re ever short on stock then we’ll let you know and you can either cancel your order or wait until we get stocks in (usually 3 weeks or so). Please note that the prices may be different from what you would pay if ordering directly from Shapeways due to currency fluctuations.
