The latest arrivals from Oddzial Osmy are now available in the online shop. The releases and codes are as follows:
BW-618 M48A2GA2, German version of American M48, armed with 105 mm gun
SA-640 BTR152, Soviet 6-wheeled APC
SA-6105 BTR152 plus infantry
WFR-614 FCM 36, light tank with sloped armour
WFR-615 Citroen 23, French light truck

WFR-617 Renault FT 17, WWI vintage, father of all modern tanks
WWH-628 Sdkfz 10, light half-tracked vehicle
Three figure codes are GBP2.30 per pack, four-figure codes are GBP4.50 per pack. Packs typically contain 15 pieces; four-figure codes typically contain 15 + 15 pieces.
We have also received restocks of many codes, but are temporarily out of stock of UK-614 Land Rovers and SA-602 T72A.
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.
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.

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.
Unfortunately the relationship of the Polish zloty and sterling has forced Oddzial Osmy to increase its prices to Fighting 15s. The prices of Oddzial Osmy 1:600 Moderns and WWII packs have therefore risen by 10 pence with immediate effect. That still makes each AFV cost only just over 15 pence.
Also, Fighting 15s has increased prices of Oddzial Osmy 15mm figures to their full RRP of GBP5.00 for a pack of 16 foot, and GBP10.00 for a pack of 32 foot or 15 mounted figures. Fighting 15s has been offering these figures at a slight discount ever since they have been stocked. However, the rises still make a foot figure cost the equivalent of just over 31 pence and a mounted figure just under 67 pence.
Fighting 15s has just received April’s releases from Oddzial Osmy, and they are available now to buy in the online shop.
The releases include:
US-632 M1A2 Abrams – latest version of US MBT
SA-637 BTR-50P – Soviet tracked APC
SA-638 BRDM-1 – first version of amphibious armoured recon car
SA-639 Su-25 – ground attack aircraft
SA-6104 – BTR-50P + infantry
WPL-615 Tachanka (+ 1-horse cart for carrying HMG) – famous horse cart with HMG
WFR-612 Morane Saulnier MS-406 – one of the basic French fighters in 1940
WFR-613 Dewoitine D-520 – best French fighter in 1940
WWH-627 Junkers Ju-87B Stuka – infamous German dive-bomber
Most packs are GBP2.30 each, except codes SA-6104 and WPL-615 which are GBP4.50 (these are the new prices set in May). Most packs contain 15 vehicles or 8 aircraft, except SA-639 (6 aircraft).
Upcoming releases for May should include the long-awaited T34/85.
There is now a Yahoogroup, 3mm Miniatures, dedicated to models and wargames in 1:600 scale (or 3mm).
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.
