Welcome to Colonel Bills Recruiting Office
Pre ordering for Collection at Shows
We encourage customers to pre order any of the items by offering a 10% discount for collection at a show. This can be achieved in several ways.
Our checkout offers the opportunity for UK customers to 'Collect at a Show' and 'Cash on Collection'. If you use this facility please include where you would like to collect your order in the checkout process, or afterwards by email. Of course all customers can pre order by emailing or telephoning us with their order.
We will take payment at the show by cash or, in the UK, debit/credit card. If you prefer too pay in advance we can send you a Paypal invoice, or you can telephone us to pay by card.
Our next shows are:
World Championships, Donington, Derby 1st/2nd October
SELWG, Crystal Palace, London, 9th October
SKELP, Forfar 15th October
Stand To, National Railway Museum, Shildon, Co Durham 16th October
Fiasco, Leeds 30th October
Full listings of our forthcoming shows/events are on the Notice Board at our main website www.colonelbills.com - its never too early to pre order!
We are proud to be 4Ground's 'official' show stockist. This being the case we can offer most of their items below the recommend price.
Any 4Ground pre orders are priced at 10% below our prices. We will honour any discounts that 4Ground offer when they group items together into sets/streets etc. We will supply upon request any item that 4Ground have for sale on their website that we do not normally stock.
Don't forget that much of our 'Depot Battalion' range is specifically designed to compliment 4Grounds buildings and vehicles
Flags of War
We just love the Flags of War range and consider it the best value for money. Unfortunately we do not sell it online. This is simply due to the vastness of the range and the problems that we would have maintaining the stock level for it. However we do sell it at shows and can offer our normal pre order discount on any of the FoW products - but please allow us enough time to get your required items in stock in case we need to order them ourselves!!
Used Figure Stock
All our used, or pre loved, figures are bought from wargamers or collectors who no longer require them. We check the figures and discard any that are damaged. We supply them with shields or other equipment where necessary and strip them back to bare metal if they have been badly painted or just undercoated. Generally we do not equip them with metal spears, pikes or javelins. We try to group the figures into 'wargamer friendly' lots.
We try very hard to get the correct identification as to manufacturer, range and troop type. However sometimes we are left with only their previous General's word as to these facts, so if we get it wrong occasionally please be patient with us!
Our used painted stock is, of course, by a variety of artists. We try to take sufficient photographs for the customer to make an informed choice as to whether the painting and modelling conforms with their standards; and we always try to describe the items in an honest fashion - warts 'n' all!!!
Most of our used figure lots are individual and therefore you may sometimes find that, having successfully ordered a pack online, we have to refund your money as that particular pack has already been sold at a show, or by telephone order, and we have not yet had the time to remove it from sale online. This, unfortunately, is the nature of our business and we hope that you can understand this problem and accept it.
