New to the store! Signed copies of the Armada Wars: Books 1–3 Omnibus paperback, posters for Whom Gods Shall Fear, and the posters 1–5 value pack.
The poster value pack saves 25% over separate purchases! The signed copy of the Omnibus is being introduced with an early bird discount, and those of you with the special coupons from Armada Wars convention appearances can get an additional £5 off.
A while ago there was a poll regarding the redesign of the front covers, and it was very helpful to hear your views.
This poll is along the same lines, only it's for posters. The posters are currently available as artwork only, or with title text (i.e. just like the front covers). I'm considering either changing the design with text, or adding a new poster into the line-up.
So take a look at the three styles below (Style C is of course the proposed one), then please do spend fifteen seconds giving feedback. It really does help!
The posters for From Shattered Stars have arrived at last, and at A1 size (84.1 x 59.4 cm) in high quality print they look amazing! Like all the other posters, they are printed on heavy duty 250gsm silk paper, using a professional CMYK process which duplicates the colours reliably and beautifully.
There's a new value pack in addition to the old 3-pack, this one is of course a 4-pack containing all the posters for the main sequence novels. The price point of the 3-pack has changed to make it 15% off, and the new 4-pack gives you a chunky 20% off.
If you visited the Armada Wars stall at Sci-Feb, you may have picked up a business card. You'll find a coupon code on the back of it... but it's not just any old coupon code, oh no.
This is a persistent, mutating coupon! Throughout the year, as new items come onto our store, the advantage it gives you will change periodically. So for example upon the release of From Shattered Stars, you will get a preferential rate on the paperback.
All we ask is that you keep it to yourselves. Convention visitors are special!
The first offer is a whopping 30% off all posters, which includes value packs!
There's loads of information on this site about the series, broken down into very logical sections, and the best place for a newcomer to start is with the about page.
In addition to the previous simplification of shipping, the higher shipping rates for posters have now been scrapped. Everything will now be shipped at the same rate, governed by weight, whether the order contains paperback books or posters.
It does cost about £2.00 GBP more to mail a poster tube than a box of books, but Armada Wars is going to pay that difference.
However, since posters do require different packaging, please continue to order posters separately from other products wherever possible!
As anticipated the Throam T-shirts have arrived in the store today, as have the posters with text (Steal from the Devil, List of the Dead, The Ravening Deep, the value packs of those three, and I Dream of Damastion.)
The sharp-eyed might notice lots of prices have dropped since the store first appeared, in particular the poster value pack and the T-shirts.
To make things extra special we are launching the store with some voucher codes. These are valid to the end of May 2016. The codes are:
Further voucher codes are available, but you need to be a member of the official Facebook fan group to access them.
The store is just about ready for its official launch, which is coming this Monday (2nd May 2016).
Almost everything is now in place, from packaging to shipping accounts, Paypal to delivery labels, returns process to feedback systems!
And of course... stock.
Disappointingly the T-shirts have not yet arrived, but they will hopefully be here in time for the grand opening on Monday. This line is being introduced in an ash grey colour, and the intention is to also provide 'Blood Red', 'MAGA Green', and 'Imperial Blue'.
On the topic of additional colours: the keen-eyed may notice that all product pages now have a comments box. This box can be used for requesting alternate versions of products; all we ask is that star ratings are used responsibly (i.e. by those people who actually made a purchase.)
There's much more to tell! Click "read more" to... read more.
Huge news! The long-awaited official Armada Wars store front is almost ready to launch, and it will be bursting into life very shortly.
This will be a six-month trial, to test out a variety of things such as suppliers, business processes, costing, and so on. It will hopefully be a very smooth operation.
So what can you expect?
One of the things most often requested by you on both the Armada Wars Facebook page, and in the official Facebook Fan Group, was posters. And boy will you have them! Big, shiny posters, printed at A1 size on delightful silk paper. If all you care about is posters, feel free to jump right down this specific wormhole.
And to make things a bit special, how about signed copies of the novels? Just pick the relevant option on the page for any paperback.
Future additions to the store are sure to include more clothing (both merchandise-style, and "in universe" style), stationery, and other limited paperback editions. If there is anything else you'd like to see in the store, the time to comment is NOW.
