www.imperialarmoury.co.uk is a new webstore selling Imperial Guard bits.

Why only one range, I hear you ask? Looking around other bits websites it seems it's impossible to keep high stock levels for the entire Games Workshop range, so I have decided to focus on a single range in order to keep consistantly high stock levels.

The shop is new, nothing has sold out yet and I plan on restocking as frequently as is neccessary to make sure that stock levels remain high.

Anyone who orders by 10.00am GMT tomorrow will have their order shipped tomorrow.

So why not visit http://www.imperialarmoury.co.uk!

(I apologise to all Catachan players out there and can only say that you will be next!)

Personally, I think this is a great idea, especially if you can keep all the "high demand" bits in stock this way.

Something to consider might be adding some of the third-party Guard conversion bits to your site. Make it a 'one-stop" site for all your Guard bitz needs. Not sure how the logistics of that would work out; just a thought I had.

Good luck!

Definitely +1 on this. It might also be an idea to stock some of the conversion stuff that comes from Poland or the US. I quite often get MAS stuff from UK sellers, simply because I'm impatient and don't want to wait (or pay) for the delivery from other parts of Europe!

Thanks for the spelling tip!

Also, the 3rd party conversion bits are a great idea and definitely something I will consider.

The one stop is a good idea. Things from micro arts, victoria lamb, maxmini's weapons.

Oooh, this right here is a very good idea!

Really nice, simple website, more than reasonable prices and everything appears to be in stock for the moment.

I really like the idea of a one stop shop, always get frustrated going through other bits sites so this really helps.

Just wish this site had been up and running a year ago, would have saved me a fortune when doing my last guard army!

Nice site, I will probably purchase some bits off this site. Can you still send bits to Australia? Also I do alot of website development and design, so if you need help with your website let me know.

You are my hero. Please tell me you ship internationally (to the US in this case).

1-stop-shop this store with 3rd-party bits and I would just give you all my money. Also, if you can get your hands on any Elysian Drop troop bits, I might just have to sell everything I own to have enough for the massive purchase I'd make.

Someone bought them last night, sorry.

Also what would people be more keen on being added first (after Catachans); tank parts or third party metal accessories.

It's a cool idea...I think you will find that it is hard to maintain stock of the important high value items while the less important items will pile up. There are two ways to deal with this: one is to raise the price on the more valued item, which is why you sometimes see melta guns going for $8 US on Ebay. The other is to sell by the sprue: it's not as specific as bits, but it's much less of a logistical nightmare for you.

You can sell in sprue combinations that people often want. For example, most people don't want 1 infantry squad, so sell a "power blob" bundle containing 2 power weapons (3rd party manufacture), 2 infantry squads, and a commissar with power weapon model. A "Vet squad" bundle would probably consist of an infantry squad, 3rd party heads of the buyer's choice, 3 3rd party special weapons of the buyer's choice, etc.

Suffolk, where the Aliens roam.

Aye, I'd agree, looking over the list it looks like your Lascannons and Melta Guns went pretty sharpish. But at £1.50 for the Melta and £1 for the Lascannon, they would do.

I'd check places like ebay and see which are the items demanding the highest price and adjust prices to some level accordingly.
Not saying you should have them for £5 more or anything, but if you have melta guns priced at the same price as heavy flamers, you'll never sell certain bits, and will struggle to keep up with the ones folks want.

Its simple price and demand.

For example if I was to buy from your heavy section all I'd want is the six crouching legs, three stands, three lascannons and three shields. The rest I can cover or have the spares for. Thats a total of £8.40, and other than the three Autocannon bits, and three missile launchers another £6 I could see folks buying.. I'd see the rest selling very slowly. I'd be weary of cash flow issues building up also as that barely costs the price of the box from a discounter, even worse if paying full price and splitting.

Just some thoughts. Other than that an interesting site.

I have just done a "bit by bit" unboxing of the Cadian Command Sprue. It can be viewed on our YouTube channel here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_IbSGsRFK08&feature=g-upl&context=G219005fAUAAAAAAAAAA

Also, metal Meltaguns should be added to the site next Friday at a cost of £1.99 each.

Moore, Ok.

I know you're just getting started, but would you consider buying/offer credit for others IG bits?
Could help with getting bits. And obviously not bits you're drowning in already! But more high demand items
like meltas, lascannons,etc....

I'm needing some Leman Russ bits, so I say Vehicles/Tanks next!

Thank you for taking the time to do this for all of us IG players! International shipping isn't too outrageous so
I'll be supporting you when i can. I enjoy helping the little guy when possible.

Just to let you guys know, I am selling enough parts to make a guardsman here, for only £1.00 each. I have also dropped the shipping rate to £1.00 for the UK and £2.00 international, as it cost me less than I thought it would.

Hey, good plan with the excess guardsmen.

Do they come with bases? Either way, it would probably be a good idea to note that in the entry.

You have to get the bases separately if you don't have any spares kicking around. It's a very good price for a guardsman though!

EDIT:
Cadian Command has been restocked and I have added metal Meltaguns to the store at £1.99 each.
