Change to way of selling Artillery & some models

The time has finally come to raise our prices. In the over 6 years I have owned the company we haven’t raised the price of any of our existing models, but the time has now come when I really need to review things to ensure the company’s long term future and ensure an ever increasing range of new models. With a new baby on the way the time I can devote to working on Heroics & Ros must reduce, which means contracting out more of our work.

 

I don’t intended to raise everything by a fixed percentage but review each model or type of model and find an economic price for each so this will be an ongoing project rather than a big bang.

 

As part of this project we will also be making some changes to the way some items are sold in the shop.

Artillery will now be sold without crew, this will give you the choice of using one of our increasing range of new figures or the current crew figures or none if that’s what you prefer.

All models will be sold individually rather than some in pairs, this is proving confusing for some of our newer customers when placing orders.

 

We will start by changing the way things are sold as of 1st September (i.e. Tomorrow) and implement other changes as we go.

As many of you may know I have been suffering from ill health over the last few months but have kept Heroics & Ros going with help from family and friends. I am due to have surgery on the 27th May 2016 which should fix me! The estimated recovery time according to my surgeon is 4-6 weeks so I have decided to shut Heroics and Ros completely on 26th May until 1st July 2016 to allow me to concentrate on my recovery and not put any extra strain on my family.

 Shop update

No orders will be taken during this period. Heroics and Ros will re-commence trading on 1st July 2016 .

 

July will also see the release of the first of our new models some of you may have heard about.

 

My apologies for any inconvenience this will cause and I hope you can be understanding but my health and family are my priority and I feel doing things this way I can ensure Heroics & Ros can provide the type of service I want on my return without risking my recovery, trying to do both will just comprise them both.

 

Kind Regards.

Andy and family

Salute 2016

As some of you may now I have had some health problems over the last month or so.

Things have not improved and with Salute now just under two weeks I have had to make the decision we will not be attending Salute in the normal manner.

There will be no stock available to purchase on the day, any pre-orders can of cause be picked up and we are still taking those if you would like to take something home on the day. If you want to order and pay on the day we will happily provide free postage anywhere in the world, yes anywhere.

I hope to attend on the day along with Ian our sculptor and we can then show lots of our new models, some of which will be being used in a game on the day.

I am sorry we are unable to do a full stand this year but I have to be realistic in what can be achieved and this seems the best comprise between no attendance and possibly making things worse on the health front. I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but I am sure you will understand.

I look forward to meeting some of you on the day and having some time to chat.

 

Andy
