New card processor option for Fighting 15s

Fighting 15s has added an alternative credit and debit card processor to the online shop. The new Barclaycard option is in addition to our existing option to take card payments via PayPal. Some customers occasionally have issues with paying by card via the PayPal interface, incorrectly believing that they need a PayPal account, and the Barclaycard processing option is intended to provide a clear method of payment through a trusted credit card company.

The Barclaycard option accepts payments in Sterling via Visa, Mastercard and JCB.

Like PayPal, because the payment gateway is provided by a third party, Fighting 15s does not see a customer’s credit card details.

Bartek’s 17th century playing cards arrive at Fighting 15s


Fighting 15s now has in stock the latest deck of playing cards from Bartek Drejewicz – pin-up girls in 17th century uniforms. Like his successful Napoleonic pin-up girls deck, this pack of cards is published by Polish lingerie store Intimo.

The illustrations in this deck, entitled Wild Wild Fields (Bardzo Dzikie Pola), are inspired by the history of central Europe in the 17th century. Many countries of central Europe – Poland, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine plus a few smaller nations – were united in the Polish Lithuanian Commonwealth, which was arrayed against the Kingdom of Sweden, the Russian Empire and the Ottoman Empire. There were a lot of wars in western Europe in this period, such as the English Civil War, so the deck includes a few illustrations from the Kingdom of England. Scottish mercenaries also fought on both sides during the wars between Poland and Sweden. The deck also contains pictures of soldiers from Spain, Germany, France and smaller countries, because these troops were either mercenaries or allies of Central European empires and also brave soldiers and highly effective units. The illustrations are highly respectable: this is a pin-up not a glamour deck.

The playing cards are a bridge-sized deck and printed on opaque casino card. Each of the 52 cards is uniquely illustrated; the deck also contains four unique jokers. The cards use a continental notation so the Queen is represented by a D (Dame). Decks are available with either a silver and blue back or a red and gold back; the illustrations on either deck are the same. Fighting 15s has been able to get a better deal on the cards than for the Napoleonics with the result that decks are just £8.50 each including VAT; card-players who need two different-back decks can buy the pair for £16.00 including VAT.  The decks are available to buy in the Fighting 15s shop.

The illustrations on the cards are as follows:

Clubs depicts Western European armies, mostly Sweden and England:

Ace – Kingdom of Sweden, Veteran Infantry in winter uniform (hongreline)
King – Kingdom of Sweden, Cuirassier
Dame (Queen) – Kingdom of England, Royalist infantry officer

Fighting 15s and Christmas 2015

It’s the time of year when Fighting 15s has to think about Christmas and obtaining stock from overseas suppliers in time to fulfil orders placed in the run-up to the festive season.

At this point Fighting 15s usually has time before Christmas for one more bulk delivery from Eureka Miniatures of Australia. Eureka supplies our ranges of AB Figures, Eureka Miniatures, Shadowforge and Laughing Monk. This shipment usually arrives in the first week of December or slightly after.

Eureka Miniatures typically closes for two weeks over Christmas and New Year, and comes back from the break to prepare for CanCon at the end of January. Our first shipment of the New Year therefore usually does not arrive until mid-February. If we are unable to obtain items from Eureka on our early December shipment, delivery of items that are out of stock, go out of stock or that are obtained to special order is not likely to occur until mid-February 2016.

We will get two more deliveries from Oddzial Osmy of Poland, in early November and early December. Marcin at Oddzial Osmy, however, usually manages to keep going over the festive season and we should then receive another shipment in early January. Our order for stock on that shipment is placed by mid-December.

Subject to those delivery times and packing errors by suppliers (rare, but they happen), Fighting 15s will try its best to get customers their orders in time for Christmas. Items that cannot be obtained will follow as soon as delivery times permit.

Last posting day for 1st class post in the UK is 21 December 2015. Fighting 15s is shut at weekends and on the UK public holidays of 25 and 28 December 2015 and 1 January 2016.
