Black Hat Miniatures has announced a price increase on Coat D’arms Paints and brushes. Pots of paint are now GBP1.50 for 18ml; Brushscape is GBP4.00 a pot; Superstar Brushes are GBP2.00 and Pro Brushes are GBP2.50.
Fighting 15s’ prices for the above items are the same and remain unchanged, because we had already factored in the increase when we began charging VAT on 1 October. An 18ml paint pot is therefore GBP1.50 inc VAT to our customers within the EU; our customers outside the EU pay the ex-VAT price of GBP1.28.
Eureka Miniatures’ latest releases in its range of 28mm figures for Armies and Enemies of Tekumel (Empire of the Petal Throne) have now arrived in the UK and are available in the online shop. The releases include Baron Ald, leader of Yan Kor, and the first and second Gureks of Tleku Miriya – a Gurek is simply the name for a unit in the Yan Koryani army; Tleku Miriya is a city in Yan Kor.
Fighting 15s’ lists of individual figure codes are once again available to download either from the Links & Downloads section of the shop (www.fighting15s.co.uk) or from the news site at www.oozlumgames.co.uk. The lists supersede the ones that were withdrawn at the beginning of September, when all lists dated earlier became invalid.
Prices in the new lists are inclusive of VAT. Figure codes in the new lists are also now clearly different from codes on the website or codes in previous editions of the lists, as we have replaced the manufacturers’ standard prefixes with our own for most lines.
Anyone placing mail orders using codes from the website still risks getting figures they do not expect, because the website packages figures for some codes together: only codes from the lists should be used for mail order.
Because the new lists incorporate VAT, Fighting 15s regrets that it cannot process orders made using the out of date versions of the lists; payment will be returned or destroyed as appropriate.
Our latest shipment has arrived from Oddzial Osmy, bringing with it the following new releases:
SA-643 BRDM1 Snapper – version armed with AT missiles
SA-644 Mi-2 – light utility helicopter
SA-645 Su-17/22M4 – Soviet fighter-bomber with variable geometry wings
US-638 F-16A – mainstay of US and many NATO fighter forces
WWH-633 PzKpfw IVE – version with add-on armour
WBR-608 Infantry – British Tommies, standing and prone figures
WBR-609 HMGs and mortars – Vickers MGs and 3in mortars
Packs contain 15 vehicles or infantry bases, or 8 aircraft/helicopters, and cost GBP2.00 excluding VAT (GBP2.35 including VAT). Customers outside the European Union pay the ex-VAT price.
The new releases are available now in the Fighting 15s online shop. Pictures should be available shortly.
Our delivery has also brought fresh stocks of Chinook and Blackhawk helicopters.
