Well, dear customers, another year draws to an end, and yet the scourge of Covid19 is still amongst us. I’m happy to say many of you have taken the opportunity of the various lockdowns, imposed upon us, to send your lead mountains to us to convert into field armies as varied as ancient republican Romans to the skirmishes on the Indian North-West Frontier in the 1920s.
Many of you will, by now, have noticed there was a price increase for which I must apologise, but costs continue to rise and so such increases become inevitable. The other big change you will have noticed is the site was revamped and relaunched by our web provider, Mosaic Media Ltd of Warrington, UK. Their service was, and remains, excellent.
The other big news is that as of July 2021 we have discontinued painting 15mm/18mm scale and smaller. This was not a decision taken lightly, but comes after much discussion. I am sorry for the inconvenience this will cause some customers, but we do look forward to painting 20mm scale and above for our other customers. The 20mm scale has been fused with 28mm scale to provide a single price scale.
Finally, I have taken the decision to devote more resources to painting stock items. These units will be somewhat varied, but we will be attentive to any requests that are made. This painted stock will appear for sale on this website, and on various Facebook pages. Payment for such units will be by PayPal or Pioneer. We use DHL, FedEx, and UPS as our main carriers. All shipments are tracked. In addition, our stock will continue to be available through our American agent, Jacob Kovel of Silver Eagle Wargame Supplies, and in the UK and Europe through our UK agent, Gary Edwards of Red Eagle Miniatures.
All of us here at Big Battalions wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, and we look forward to providing our painting services to you in the New Year.
