Old Glory UK are continuing to do business as normally as we can in the current situation. However gaps ARE starting to appear in our stock, Although we still have over 150,000 soldiers in the stockroom some ranges have been roundly plundered by customers painting away in isolation. We have sent off orders bot to OGUS and to Drabant in Russia but currently neither can tell us for certain when to expect re-supply . I am hoping for sometime in June but currently cannot be certain of that. Currently we are and will continue to send out orders with “to Follow” notes in your parcels where items are temporarily out of stock as we always have done. Regular customers will know that sometimes it take a while to get your back order but you do get them. Currently it may take a little longer than usual. If you want to check that an item is in stock please email me on

OGUK and Covid- 19

Uncategorised Posted on 30 Mar, 2020 10:04:35

Despite the current situation Old Gloy UK are still working. We work from home so can carry on as long as we can.
So we are still accepting and processing orders for the immediate future. Indeed I am currently unpacking a shipment from the USA – 10 boxes – which arrived on Friday. Another 3 boxes are due to arrive today. Once I have unpacked these boxes back orders will go out in strict date order. Longest waiting first.
However due to the restrictions I am only posting once a week. That is one journey to my local Post Office. I am not , at the moment, using a courier service unless absolutely necessary for obvious reasons. This will make things a little slower but we – that is my wife and I – continue to process and post out orders as long as we can.

Shows and the Virus

With the current panic over Covid19 aka Coronavirus wargames shows over the next few month could be affected.
So just to make things clear. Old Glory UK will be attending shows as normal as long as those events actually go ahead. If the organisers cancel under Government advice then any pre-orders that would have been collected at the show would be sent out post free. This will ONLY apply if the event is cancelled.

Technical Issues

Old Glory UK Posted on 08 Feb, 2019 09:19:50

We are currently experiencing some technical issues with the website. Our Tech support have been notified and are hopefully dealing with the problem. In the meantime please send all orders directly to me on and I will deal with ti personally and send you a paypal invoice. . Alternatively you can phone me on 01207 283332 and make you order by telephone using credit or debit cards
Apologies for the inconvenience.

Website problems

Old Glory UK Posted on 19 Nov, 2018 09:46:12

Apologies for the inconvenience but I am afraid we are having issues with the website payment pages. Currently they are offline though customers can still view the site and pace items in the shopping cart as normal. Full operation will be resumed as soon as possible.
In the meantimes you can still place you order by email on and pay either by card or paypal
or by telephone on
+44 (0) 1207 283332
since we still take telephone orders as we always have
Also email and telephone orders mean that customers can take advantage of the neverending “6 for5” deal where in any group of 6 packs of miniatures you will pay only for 5 – where prices differ the cheapest will be the free pack . This deal extends so buy 12 packs pay only for 10 and so on.
This deal will continue for Telephone and show orders once the site is fully operational and we have no plans to cancel it at this time
That iswhy we call it the “Neverending 6 for 5 deal

Security upgrade

Old Glory UK Posted on 13 Nov, 2018 11:54:46

So around 10 am this morning a mild panic set in as the site listing disappeared page by page with no apparent explanation. Disconcerting to say the least. Had we been hacked? Well no is was my host instituting a security upgrade a little ahead of schedule and without precise notification as to how and when or even with what temporary effect.
However after somethin over an hour watching page after page scarper the whole site has re-booted and is now a bit faster and more secure. So hopefully panic over …..

My next re-supply shipment from Old Glory USA is on it way. A smaller shipment from Drabant has arrived as I type this.
The Old Glory shipment is due to arrive this coming Wednesday and should include supplies of the new Blue Moon crusades range in 15/18mm. This as well as a load of re-supply for many ranges. Chaps awaiting back orders will be sorted out in the usual manner longest waiting first. then in strict date order.
Another order will go off to the USA pretty soon to cover the more recent back orders- those where I have run out of something since I placed the order which will arrive on Wednesday.. That order- to get things in perspective was placed at the end of August.
