Pre Ordering Products for Collection at Shows
*****Sorry but we are not accepting any pre-orders at present*****
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!
Painted Figures - We do not buy painted figures from members of the public - All of our used painted stock is now supplied by a small number of tried and trusted artists. However, we are happy to quote on painted figures that we will strip and sell as unpainted stock
