Fighting 15s announces… Fighting 15s Figures

40mm Flashing Blade figures - now called Fighting 40s

40mm Flashing Blade figures – now called Fighting 40s

Fighting 15s’ long hot summer of reorganization and rationalization has seen a new section arrive in the online shop: Fighting 15s Figures.

Fighting 15s Figures is home to the ranges that we ourselves own and produce: Huzzah! Miniatures, Flashing Blade, and the 15mm medievals and Napoleonics formerly made by Oddzial Osmy. These have all been lurking in different sections of the website, and we have now united them all under one banner.

The change has been promoted by new mould making, primarily for the 15mm medievals and Napoleonics, but also for the 40mm Flashing Blade range. This means some of these old codes are now available from fresh new moulds. Our priority has been bringing back to life Oddzial Osmy’s 15mm Tannenberg line for 1410, and redoing the Flashing Blade hoplites where mould wear in the arm sockets has made assembly a challenge best accomplished with a drill.

We have further rebranded the figures as follows: the 15mm Oddzial Osmy medievals and Napoleonics are now Fighting 15s, the traditional 30mm SYW from Huzzah! Miniatures are now Fighting 30s, and the 40mm Flashing Blade Greek hoplites, skeletons, Dark Ages Saxons and Romano-British are now Fighting 40s.

Some codes still have to be remoulded and migrated to the new section of the website. News of relaunched figures will be posted as they become available.

King Jagiello rides again at Fighting 15s

MP02 Polish and European knights

MP02 Polish and European knights

Fighting 15s has re-released the range of 15mm Teutonic Order and Polish forces for Tannenberg 1410 that were originally produced by Oddzial Osmy of Poland, and to which Fighting 15s now holds the rights.

The figures are being produced from new production moulds. The distinctive two-part horses of the range are a thing of the past, because the horses have been remastered as one-piece mounts. The range is also now cast in a traditional tin-lead alloy, rather than the strong and hard zinc-aluminium alloy favoured by Oddzial Osmy.

The initial releases are as follows:

MP01 Polish camp followers and peasant infantry
MP02 Polish and European knights (MP02 can be used to provide European knights for the Teutonic Order)
MP03 King Jagiello and retinue
MP04 Polish Czeladz (Polish cavalry)

MT01 Teutonic Order spearmen
MT02 Teutonic Order crossbowmen
MT03 Teutonic Order knights
MT04 Teutonic Order Grand Master and retinue
MT05 Teutonic Order Knechte

Packs contain 8 foot figure or 4 mounted, except the retinue packs which in basic form comprise three mounted and one foot. Packs cost £3.20 each including VAT.

Fighting 15s is currently remastering the Lithuanian forces necessary to complete the Polish army for Tannenberg. Unfortunately, the Lithuanian horse was left out of the original remastering, which has put back plans to release the Lithuanians at the same time as the Polish and the Teutonic Order. The Lithuanians are expected to be re-released in August 2014.

Fighting 15s and Carronade, Triples and Walk the Wight 2014

walk2012route

Fighting 15s would ordinarily be attending Carronade in Falkirk this coming weekend, followed by a short holiday on the mainland and then an appearance at Sheffield Triples the weekend after. This year, however, Fighting 15s’ owner Ian is taking part in Walk the Wight, which falls on the same weekend as Carronade, and which therefore makes attending Carronade impossible.

Walk the Wight is the annual charity walk in aid of the Earl Mountbatten Hospice, the only hospice on the Isle of Wight, and it is the major fund-raising activity of the hospice. The hospice is self-funded and does invaluable work on the island.

The walk, which this year is on 11 May, takes participants from Bembridge in the east to the Needles in the west and covers roughly 27 miles. Ian has done the walk just twice before, making him a considerable lightweight among veteran walkers, and it takes him just under 10 hours.

Ian’s walker number is 2929 and he has a Just Giving page at www.justgiving.com/Ian-Marsh3 – any contributions are welcome.

Fighting 15s’ attendance at Sheffield Triples is affected because Carronade and Triples are only economically viable when done together in one trip, and to justify a short holiday as part of that trip.  We will not, therefore, be at Triples this year. Revenues at wargames shows are, alas, falling year on year, and Fighting 15s has decided to limit the number of shows it attends each year, with the main purpose being to meet and talk to old and new customers. Attending fewer shows brings the benefit of allowing the burgeoning internet side of the business to be better served.

On Monday 12 May Ian will largely be unable to move and Fighting 15s will be closed for the day.
