Fighting 15s at Claymore, 4 August

Fighting 15s’ next show takes us back to Scotland for Claymore (Edinburgh, 4 August).

Nic Robson, boss of Eureka Miniatures in Australia, will be on Fighting 15s’ stand at the show, selling samples of Eureka’s latest and forthcoming releases, including to the best of our knowledge 28mm Montrose Irish, 28mm Sumerians, 28mm Teddy Bear Pirates, and more releases for the 28mm Toytown range.

Claymore will be the first UK show at which the above figures will be available; they will also be available at Historicon in the US in July.

Fighting 15s cannot take every range to shows, and most of those we do take are usually sold as unit packs. Although we are beginning to have some 15mm AB Figures at shows, they are usually available only in bargain packs: we do not sell individual 15mm AB Figures at shows except to customers who order them in advance.

Our carrying capacity of stock for Claymore is limited – we travel by train with two large cases full of crates, and Nic Robson travels with only one large box – so we particularly recommend that customers order in advance for collection on the day.

We no longer take Black Hat figures to Scottish shows.

Carronade: Falkirk, Saturday 12 May

Fighting 15s has packed its bags ready for Carronade in Falkirk, Scotland, this Saturday and will be setting off early Friday morning by train.

A big first for Carronade is that it is the first show to which we have managed to take 15mm AB Figures in any quantity – and even then it is only a selection from the range. Our luggage contains two crates that are crammed full of 15mm Napoleonic AB Figures, with infantry pre-packed in battalions for General de Brigade (and other 1:20 games) and cavalry in 12s (which can be doubled up for GdeB).

Stock we are taking to the show includes:

15mm AB Napoleonic Imperial French, Early Russians (for Friedland), Staff Sets (all nations), Late Prussian infantry

15mm Flags for AB

18mm Eureka Napoleonic British and French

18mm Eureka Seven Years War Prussians and Austrians

20mm Eureka WWII Finns

28mm Eureka Pax Limpopo Personalities, Victorian Civilians, Indian Civilians, Pirates (Golden Age), Colonial Gunboat Guns, Kung Fu Schoolgirls, Tachankas, Frog King sets

40mm Eureka Four Musketeers

1:600 (3mm) Oddzial Osmy Modern and WWII vehicles and aircraft

15mm Oddzial Osmy Napoleonics

28mm Shadowforge warrior women figures

Supplies of some codes will by their nature be limited, and it is really is too late for any more advance orders. I can’t fit anything else in and really need to pack some clothes.

While I am away at Carronade, clearly no orders will be processed. I will begin dealing with orders again on Tuesday 15 May.

Clear flying bases from eM-4

We now have in stock clear flying bases from eM-4 – previously we had only black flying bases. Packs are priced at GBP1.00 for 15 bases.

The bases are available now in the online shop.

Eureka 10mm Fantasy now available


Eureka Miniatures’ revamped and expanded range of 10mm fantasy figures is now in stock and available in the online shop.

Please note that we have only limited stocks of this range and it may be that we have to obtain figures to special order.

Some of the new releases on Eureka’s own site are not yet available in the UK because they were omitted from our order.

Eureka 18mm Fantasy additions


Fighting 15s now has in stock the latest additions to Eureka Miniatures’ 18mm Fantasy range: the Men of Grandeur (also suitable for War of the Roses), Creatures (Dragon, Treeman and Hill Giant) and Centaurs.

The figures are available now in the online shop.
