Welcome to Colonel Bills Recruiting Office
We offer a large and comprehensive selection of, mainly historical, wargaming items. There are our own ranges - Depot Battalion, D'Arlo Figurines & Belt Fed Gaming, a growing number of other ranges of figures, board games, terrain and accessories that we retail from leading wargames companies; and of course, our ever-changing stock of pre-loved and used items in all scales both painted and unpainted. Please feel free to browse and enjoy.......
Disruption to Online Service
The 'Used Unpainted' category of our store will be invisible from approx 0700 - 2300 hours on Sunday 17th October. This is to allow us to attend The SELWG Show and update the sales afterwards. We apologise for any inconvenience

Used Figure Stock
All our used, or pre-loved, figures are bought from wargamers or collectors who no longer require them. We check the figures and discard any that are damaged. We supply them with shields or other equipment where necessary and strip them back to bare metal if they have been painted/undercoated. Generally, we do not equip them with metal spears, pikes or javelins.
Please note that we put a lot of effort into sorting figures into packs that are suitable for both the wargamer and for us to sell - we DO NOT, under any circumstances break open packs to allow customers to 'cherry-pick' figures - so please don't ask!!
We try very hard to get the correct identification as to manufacturer, range and troop type. However sometimes we are left with only their previous General's word as to these facts, so if we get it wrong occasionally please be patient with us!
