Customers who subscribe to Eureka’s newsletter will no doubt already have seen the news that the first release of AB Figures’ 15mm 1815 French infantry is available. This close to Christmas, coupled with the seasonal closure of AB Figures/Eureka Miniatures, it is impossible for Fighting 15s to obtain stock until the new year.
However, Fighting 15s will not be ordering in stock. Instead, Fighting 15s will be supplied with licensed moulds by AB/Eureka to cast these figures in the UK. Update (25 January 2016): These moulds are not expected to arrive until late February to early March 2016 at the earliest. Fighting 15s is obtaining licensed moulds because of the expected high demand for this release. Production of moulds is entirely dependent on Eureka Miniatures’ mould-making schedule, over which Fighting 15s has no influence whatsoever, and therefore dates for the arrival of moulds may well slip.
Fighting 15s will, however, be ordering into stock the newly announced flank companies for the Orange Nassau regiment. Update (25 January 2016): These figures have now arrived in the UK.
The new British generals from AB are not yet released and Fighting 15s can therefore neither order them in nor obtain them.
All enquiries regarding the availability of these latest sculpts from Tony Barton will be directed to this post. Fighting 15s will post a news item to announce the availability of the figures once the moulds have arrived and have been tested.

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.
