Spring Mega Event 2022 all the releases and news until 5th May

One of the biggest events of the year at Alternative Armies.  Until 9pm GMT Thursday 5th May 2022 you will get 20% off every order automatically at checkout, an array of over thirty new releases, a free Alternia Miniature in every package and more.  Full event details are here for you to read. Go to the WEBSITE and have a browse down to the left hand menu and within them sub-menu’s to see what interests you among our thousands of miniatures, bases, books and more.

20% Off Every Order: Once you have put everything into your cart proceed to checkout. Once there our website automatically deducts twenty percent from the cart total on screen before payment is made.  No code needed. You will see the total reduce on screen.  This discount is automatic and applies to everything on the site AND if the product is already discounted on screen (such as a value pack, divisional army pack and everything on our DEALS AND OFFERS pages) then this discount is on top!  So for example all digital titles are 20% less than print and you will get a further 20% off them during the event. Note you may not use any other manually entered discount code during the event.

Free Shipping, Shipping Rates and European Small Order Rate: You can see all our prices for shipping on our WEBSITE including flat rates for door to door courier shipping and Free Shipping.  The UK and Europe have a 'small order' reduced shipping rate.  Note you must reach this amount AFTER your discount is applied for the free shipping to come into force. Some large orders will be sent out for free shipping by UPS Courier and we will inform you of this by email.

Free In Your Package: We like to give our customers a bit more and this applies also during big events. For this entire year there is a different 28mm scale female 'Alternia' our mascot each month which is totally free.  During March it is ALT003 Alternia of Erin, during April it is ALT004 Alternia Easter Girl and as the event ends you will be able at the start of May get ALT005 Alternia Future Warrior as well as the event discount.  See all our Alternia's on our WEBSITE present and past.  The free miniature changes on the 1st of each month and we will announce this as it happens.
