"Our 2010 Xmas Special starts from 00.01 (UK time) hours on Wednesday, 1st December, and runs for a fraction over two weeks, ending strictly at 24.00 (UK time) on Wednesday, 15th December. Please note this is a shorter offer period than previous years, because we want to get all pre-Christmas orders dispatched well before we close up for the holidays. All qualifying orders (which are all those for over £30 GBP of product) will get two specials included:
- All orders for £30 GBP or more at list prices get a free goodie bag of extra minis and stuff - how much you get depends on the size of your order, and we'll tailor most of the contents to fit the kind of stuff you are ordering (plus the occasional odd item that might tempt you into other ranges and scales...). What goes in the bag is our choice, so no cheekily asking for particular things please, but those of you who have had our previous Xmas deals will know that we give you a generous selection of stuff that you can actually use for your armies/fleets!
Sometimes we put in the odd special or unreleased item too, so you never know what you might get....
- In addition to the Free Stuff, qualifying orders will also get a voucher that you can use to get a generous discount off a further order placed after Christmas - so you can get your pre-Xmas stuff now, and then use the voucher up when you have some gift money from all those relatives who have absolutely no idea what to buy for you!
This is where we are varying the offer a little from previous years - we used to make the vouchers valid for January, but this year we've decided to make them valid for February 2011 (from February 1st to February 28th). There are several reasons for doing this - it will give you a little extra time to get over the Christmas expenses before spending out again, and it will give us some breathing space in January to catch up with stuff and hopefully get some further new releases ready for you to use your vouchers on.
The value of the voucher you will receive varies according to the size of your pre-Xmas order - if you are buying from £30 GBP to £70 GBP worth of goods, then you'll get a voucher for 10% discount; if you spend over £70 GBP and up to £120 GBP, it's a 15% voucher; and if you buy over £120 GBP worth, then you get a huge 20% discount voucher!
Each voucher carries a unique code number that allows you to use it for online orders (or by phone).
I'm hoping to get at least some of the long-promised new items molded up this week. As soon as they are done, they will be announced - so those of you who are waiting for the new stuff might want to hold off just a few more days before placing your orders - but there will still be plenty of time before the offer closes!
Thanks to you all for your support through 2010 - it has been a year of big changes and upheavals for us, but overall it has all gone well. Wishing you all a great Christmas (or indeed whatever else you choose to celebrate at this time of year) and a safe, happy and gaming-filled 2011!"
