Thanks Everyone Salute Season is now over!

What we began the day with and ended it with
Its been a month of real fun and extreme activity for Alternative Armies, and The Ion Age with promotions, new releases and special rates all leading up to the mighty Salute 2014 wargame show in London at the weekend there.  The Salute Season is now over.

We are getting back to normal now and while it will take us a few days I wanted to thank everyone who ordered across our websites, those who gave us kind words and those who took the time to speak to us at the show.  It means a lot and its my one time a year to meet customers face to face and to chat to fans and followers.  I had more than one hundred conversations on Saturday on subjects from Flintloque to Patrol Angis, from USEME Prohibition Gangsters to Age of Might and Steel and Alien Squad Leader too.  I got to meet others in the industry and what fine hard working fellows they all are each with a firing imagination and a love for miniatures and wargaming.

Alternative Armies decided to host The Ion Age on the trade stand this year and it got great feedback with dozens of new customers and admiring comments too.  Next time we may do something different but being such a diverse company there are many possibilities and there is a lot of time until the next show.  We gave out near the two hundred free IMP08 Muster Girl miniatures we took with us (one with every purchase just like online) and Malig Madness was fully sold out along with the new HOF28 Charger APC kit which is out this week on the website.

What will be the theme of next year's Salute show?  No one knows at this point.  No one knows anything about the future of Salute at this moment but for Alternative Armies it will be another month of fun around and at the show you can be assured of that!

Thanks Everyone here's to 2015!
