One of the biggest events of the year at Alternative Armies.  Until 9pm GMT Monday 5th September 2022 you will get 20% off every order automatically at checkout, an array of new releases, a free new 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 Slaughterloo Divisional Army Pack and everything in our DEALS AND OFFERS) then this discount is on top!  So for example all DIGITAL BOOKS are 20% less than PRINT BOOKS 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 courier and we will inform you of this by email.

"From the very dawn of time, the land existed. Invaded, colonised, deserted, invaded once more, and always fighting against the darkness that dwelt in the Northern Seas. The land was rich with Magic, a place for Heroes, Gods and Monsters. This land has been and shall always be Erin. Now sit you down and listen for this tale will fascinate and confound you in equal measure, for what I speak of is no longer vivid life in this world of men...."  Erin our 28mm scale Celtic Mythology Range is unique in the world and is now over 90 single miniatures plus a whole range saver bundle too.
