    Default Cheap ships

    While browsing, as one does I came across a site with a few bargain priced ships.

    Company is Board game extras they currently have a couple of frigates going for £12 and some 74s for £14.25 with postage £2.25 so a chance to increase your fleets at a reasonsble price.
    I dont know stock levels but have a look and you may grap a bargain

    Well spotted Chris, but grab them whilst you can.
    They are already running out of some ships.

    Found another uk shop, never heard of these but they seem to have a number of ships in stock.

    http://www.gameseek.co.uk/searchV2.p...Sails+of+glory

    They currently have a clearance on the Le Berwick model @ £14.65, this is a Elizabeth class captured by the French
    So buy one you can reflag to go back to HMS Berwick
    The flip side is Le Swiftsure I think and a second Elizabeth captured, so buy another and you can reflag back to HMS Swiftsure, or with another reflag to HMS Irresistable as she was named after Le Swiftsure was recaptured at Trafalgar.
    I just sent off so will see how the fare

    For all American customers miniature market regularly discounts ships, always 25% off and some times as much as 50% off if you keep an eye out.

    Used to live in St. Louis, and they have tons of ships with broken masts in their retail shop. Don't think you can order them online though. I got a couple frigates for 4 dollars each awhile ago. Sadly I moved away!

    Just received a package from Gameseek, ordered on Tuesday evening, 2nd class postage, free, and they arrived today.

    So for £16 I now have another Spanish Heroe to become the French Heroes
    Plus another Le Berwick to become HMS Ajax or Thunderer which cost £14.65

    They seem to have plenty of stock if the levels are correct so I can recommend them the company has been top notch with my two orders

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    If anyone is interested Gameseek are selling the Spanish Temeraire type ship Argonauta for £14.86, and can be got with free postage if you take 2nd class postage, normally take around 3 -4 days delivery.
    This can be easily reflagged for a number of other ships of the type both British and French. Says 30+ in stock

    At least Green Knight and Gameseek are still going.

    I'm sure some of the Shipmates will be glad to pick up a ship they don't have at that price.

    Have a look here as I think you may find the actual seller is Gameseek, which if you go direct and choose second class postage, they come free post.

    Just managed to bag another on E-Bay today for £20 free P&P Chris.
    That completes my Trafalgar Fleets.
    Will post when they are all tarted up. Got a bit of flag swapping to do. Not up to your magnificent standards though.

    Took a look Chris, but nothing for me I'm afraid. However there are still some good bargains there.

    I visited the Zatu Games shop yesterday morning. It is on a Business Park and was actually closed when I arrived because they are currently short of staff but I actually found their office first and they very obligingly opened the shop for me.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. The shop does not contain everything that is on the website, so I was advised to submit a 'click and collect' order beforehand, if there was something that I particularly wanted from the website in future, and they would arrange for their warehouse to send it round to the shop. However, I did buy a ship and a couple of aircraft.

    Sadly, I must report from looking at their website, that their prices have increased substantially since yesterday.

    A matter of supply and demand I guess Dave.
    The same thing happened when I went round to a local store. They let me into the back store room where the products were gathering dust, but really good prices. I bought what I wanted, and wrote down the prices to let the chaps know how good they were. When they ordered the prices had somehow shot up overnight.
