March To War 2021 mega event is on at Alternative Armies!

Alternative Armies spring mega event is here! There is a whole lot to this offer which runs until 9am GMT Monday 3rd May 2021 and it is all outlined here covering six weeks of new releases and more.  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. Now read on and feel free to ask questions.

20% Off Every Order At Checkout:  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.  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 or divisional army pack) then this discount will apply 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 New European Small Order Rate: You can see all our prices for shipping on our WEBSITE including flat rates for door to door courier shipping.  The UK and now Europe have a 'small order' reduced shipping rate.  Free standard shipping comes in at 50.00GBP for the UK, 100.00GBP for Europe, North America and the Rest of the World. Note you must reach this amount AFTER your discount is applied for the free shipping to come into force. The largest orders will be sent out for free shipping by UPS Courier and we will inform you of this by email.

Free Miniature in your Package Automatically:  This event runs across the late part of March, the entirety of April and the very beginning of May.  During each month we have a free miniature which is automatically placed into every package shipped out from Scotland.  A gift from us to you.  This changes on the 1st of each month and you can see what it is on the website.  In March you get the 28mm scale Stricken Adventurer free.  In April a 40mm tall Troll and in May something else again!  You need do nothing but order and you will get it.
