Welcome to Colonel Bills Recruiting Office
Covid-19 Update - at the moment we are still operating normally, however some of our supply chain has been affected and therefore once certain items are out of stock we may temporarily struggle to get replacements.
Please also note that parcels are taking longer to reach their destination. Please be patient and don't panic if your parcel fails to arrive in the normal time.

We offer a large and comprehensive selection of, mainly historical, wargaming items.

Please feel free to browse and enjoy......Issues With Ordering Used Unpainted/Old School Items
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, and we have not yet had the time to remove it from sale online.
To reduce this problem occuring we make the 'Used Unpainted Items' & 'Old School' categories of our shop invisible whilst we are working at shows.
We apologise for the inconvenience that this may cause.
Pre Ordering Products for Collection at Shows
*****Sorry but we are not accepting any pre orders at present*****
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 painted/undercoated. Generally we do not equip them with metal spears, pikes or javelins.
Please note that we put a lot of effort into sorting figures into packs that are suitable for both the wargamer and for us to sell - we DO NOT, under any circumstances break open packs to allow customers to 'cherry pick' figures - so please don't ask!!
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!
Painted Figures - We do not buy painted figures from members of the public - All of our used painted stock is now supplied by a small number of tried and trusted artists. However we are happy to quote on painted figures that we will strip and sell as unpainted stock.
