One of the largest and most looked-forward-to events of the year is on now. Until Monday, 8th May 2023, we have 20% off every order automatically at check-out, an array of new releases, a free any-scale Warbot in every package (until the end of April), and more. Full event details are in this message for you to read. Go to the website and have a browse down to the left-hand menu and within the sub-menus to see what interests you among our thousands of miniatures, bases, books and more.

Spring Mega Event

20% Off Every Order!

Once you have put everything into your cart, proceed to check-out. Once there, our website automatically deducts 20% 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 value pack or divisional army pack), then this discount is 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 codes during the event.

Free Shipping, Shipping Rates & European Small Order Rate

You can see all our prices for shipping on our website (left menu), including flat rates for door-to-door courier shipping and free shipping. The U.K. 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. The largest orders will be sent out for free with shipping by UPS Courier, and we will inform you of this by email.

Free in your package

Free in Your Package

We like to give our customers a bit more, and this applies also during our big events. Until the end of April, it is AS016 Warbot, a resin robot which is great for 6mm, 15mm and 28mm gaming, and is worth £10.00 GBP. You need do nothing, as this miniature is included in packages automatically, you need only place your order. There is no limit on the number of orders, as the free item will always be included.

New release

New Releases:

More than 20 new codes are now on the website to purchase. See them all in New Releases. Note that they have no images, as these will appear as each new code gets its own news of release. But we put them all on the site for fairness at event start. Here are the March and April codes:

Deals, Bundles & Offers

We keep all of our biggest savings in one place across all our ranges. See them on our Deals Page. Save from 5% to 50% off, plus offers of added miniatures free, such as 28mm Ion Age platoon packs. Those keen on our Slaughterloo game system should visit its page, where divisional army packs already with a saving of 15% are all listed (meaning 35% off during the event). Well worth checking out, and the event discount applies on top of prices on the Deals Page.

We have an offer too from the 15mm Laserburn range, with value packs with built-in saving. We also have our 6mm Terrain range with many buildings and bundles with saving.


Rule Systems & Digital Downloads

At Alternative Armies, we have a selection of gaming titles in print and as paid digital downloads, all of which are in this event. Note also that our download versions are 20% cheaper than print, and that is before adding them to the cart. En Garde, Flintloque, Slaughterloo, DarkeStorme plus Sengoku Monster Hunter, Furioso, U.S.E.M.E. series and Doom Squad, plus many more, and Erin 2nd Edition (2005) as a download only at a great price.

Nobles and Lords

On Going Overhaul

You might have noticed new 28mm Ion Age miniatures, and that is right! We are about at the halfway point of updating with new pictures, single-pose options, and pack discounts the massive Ion Age range. There will be news on this during the event, such as right now the Nobles and Lords are being remastered (above). Until updated, the original prices are honored, of course!

We accept many forms of payment through our website, such as PayPal and credit cards, plus Google Pay and Apple Pay.

Thank You for Reading & Enjoy This Big Event of the Year!
