and one US Leader $14.95
P&P $52.95
Total $82.85 you got to be joking Lost Battalions for two painted figures and cards
Still no UK outlets do you only want US players playing the game ,looks like it.

I'm checking alternatives and distributors.

I do see that USPS charges $86.95 for up to 20 lbs, so going in with a few friends could help defray costs. Anyway, I'll pursue this and let you know.

The postage is high.. I only say because I was looking at rates to send some things to family in Romania. I would reach out to LBG and see if there is anything they can do to get that down a little. The fact of the matter is you are not going to see shipping alone less than $25. Then there is always the potential for VAT upon arrival. The problem is, is the demand there for a European distributor.

Thx Jeff
Got to the point now i just want to buy the odd leader figure now and then to increase my squad pool.
I like to play the scenarios in order from No1 and see how long i can keep soldiers alive ,if they get killed i don't use them till i start again.
so being able to buy the odd figure would be great.
their must be away to repackage to bring the cost down for outside the US.

People like playing the game in the UK but first you need to get it to the UK.
I would buy a lot more if i can go to a store and pick up what i need and not spend double for the shipping.
Sometimes its just one leader i need.

LBG is looking into someone carrying Sergeants in the UK, as of this morning's response to my inquiry. Again, I'll keep you posted.

The only shop I came across was leisure games but it seems those are no longer available.
I was buying them from noble knight games too (US) - cheaper and better postage.

The cost of supporting this game has meant it's taken a back seat with me, pity as I love it, but the postage cost prohibits major purchasing.
Perhaps next year!?

Location, location, location. - You can always buy lots of the Heroes of Normandie game, I believe they are based in France.
Have the same problem wanting some of their items with the freight and getting to the US. Just comes down to where you live and how much you want to spend.

Just sent two figures and cards to swap to the US for a mere £4.20 ($5.30) a tenth of what lost battalions charge to ship.

JB does have a contact in the UK for distribution. I'll double check the status on that.

We'll figure this out. Maybe a tramp steamer dropping off cargo at an undisclosed beach in the wee hours while you stand there with lantern in hand.

The contact for LBG in the UK is still on Holiday, but JB will contact him as soon as he returns. We'll get there.

So I have an answer for you...
I talked to Debbie and this is what she told me. All prices are what I was told over the phone, so they may not be 100% accurate, but use them as a reference.

The way it currently works:
The $52.95 is our flat rate for overseas shipping. As much or as little is ordered, the price is the same.

If your order is under two pounds (as is the case here), it can be sent First Class for $23.95. If you would like to do this, email sales@lostbattalion.com


Regarding overseas distribution:
We previously had a relationship with a Brave New World which I think has fizzled. They were in Germany, which I'm aware isn't the UK, but it's one ocean closer.

I will pass Asgard's information on to Nancy who handles our external business relations and let you know if anything develops.
