Great news!

Though I can see the issues with it, it is the specialist packs which most need splitting. For example, as above I also wanted some menials to crew my old GW support weapons, but didn't want 80 more figures i didn't need - esp more support weapons!

I think you'll need to deal with stock issues through pricing - popular ones will need to be more expensive to cover a discount on the less popular. Either way it should work out better for the customer and I suspect realise more sales overall.

Due to demand from many customers I have started to reduce the number of models in the DiD packs to better reflect what most people use them for and to reduce costs to customers who do not require large numbers of figures.

Most packs have around half the numbers previously held at half the original price. Hope this helps those looking for a smaller initial outlay when starting a new force and will also help those just needing a few extra units for existing armies.

So i’ve done the aircraft packs with most having two planes in them now and the novan elite range has been done too. I will be doing more like this as the week progresses.

On other news i’ve received my imprort duty demand from customs for the remaining first batch onslaught order so I hope to have these by the end of the week. Items include the sisters tanks and additional hellborn releases. Also Don informs me that he has received and is processing my next big batch of onslaught goodies so with luck these may reach me before the holidays.

So i'm still in the process of changing pack contents and prices, I hope to gain more consistency across the range with numbers of figures and standard pack prices where possible.

Once all the packs have been re-sized and priced I will re-introduce many of the regular packs sizes in a seperate army builder section. That way customers can get small packs to top up or start a new army and the bigger packs to expand those armies as desired. The bigger packs will be at the same prices they were before the alterations were introduced.

Hopefully this set up will keep everyone happy.

Thanks dude it has indeed been very busy round here these last few weeks changing the pack sizes mean't lots of re-bagging and re-calculation of prices then a lot of time spent changing all the information on the site so your appreciation is well received.

My next major job will be adding the new onslaught shipment to the site due in this week.

Cheers
