The releases are:

WSU-605 KV2 heavy tank
WSU-606 BA20 armoured car
WSU-607 Russian infantry
WSU-608 Maxim HMGs and PTRD AT rifles
WSU-609 45mm AT gun

Packs contain 15 pieces and cost GBP2.35 inc VAT each (GBP2.00 ex VAT to customers outside the European Union).

One new release joins the US Army in the 1/600th scale Moderns line-up:

US-640 CH46D Sea Knight helicopter

The pack contains six helicopters and costs GBP2.35 inc VAT (GBP2.00 ex VAT to customers outside the European Union).

Special Offer: 15mm AB Figures in Russian Winter Offensive

Fighting 15s special deal for January 2008 is a Russian 1812 infantry brigade comprising four 32-figure battalions of musketeers or grenadiers for GBP52.50, saving GBP5.10 on the price of the figures bought individually. The brigade pack is ideal for Napoleonic wargames that use a 1:20 figure scale, such as General de Brigade.

The brigade packs are made up of 15mm AB Figures. Figures may be cast to order in the UK, but this means that if ordered separately from other AB Figures, the brigade packs should be ready for dispatch in a matter of days.

The Russian Winter Offensive deal ends on 31 January 2008. It is available now in the Fighting 15s online shop.

Eureka releases 28mm Middle Eastern Harem set

Eureka Miniatures has released a 28mm Middle Eastern harem set that has everything you need to recreate the ‘classic’ looking harem in all its sumptuous sensuality.

There are 10 figures in the set, including the Sultan himself, attended by his two current favourites (on musical instrument and water pipe). Other ladies of the harem are bathing, grooming their hair, and feeding their pets, while the whole scene is surveyed by the watchful eyes of two disinterested eunuch guards. There is a bench for the seated figures, and the diorama base includes a sunken bath for the bathing figure. All the figures are cast in white metal and the diorama base and back-drop are made of plastic resin.

The harem set, code 100CIV26, is in stock and is available now in the Fighting 15s online shop. It costs GBP25.00 (inc VAT) or GBP21.28 ex-VAT to customers outside the European Union.

15mm AB Napoleonic Brigade Packs

Our Christmas special deals on Austrian and Spanish infantry have ended, but we have decided to keep the items in our online shop as special brigade packs for 1:20 ratio games such as General de Brigade. The new price for the packs, which comprise four battalions of 32 pieces, is GBP55.00.

There are still options to supersize the Austrians to 48-piece battalions, or to represent the Spanish with 30-figure battalions and their full theoretical company structure.

All the figures in the brigade pack deals are cast under licence in the UK using a high quality high-tin alloy. As Fighting 15s becomes able to cast more codes under licence, we will be adding to the brigade pack deals.

The brigade packs are available now in the online shop.

AB releases new 15mm Spanish Napoleonic infantry

ab_new_spanish_fusiliers_1.jpg

Sculptor Tony Barton has remodelled the fusiliers and grenadiers in AB’s range of 15mm Spanish Napoleonic infantry. The new figures are marching fusiliers and grenadiers, plus officers, drummers and standard bearers for both (the grenadiers probably didn’t carry flags, but the figures are provided for gamers who must have flags with their units).

Fighting 15s is licensed to cast these new figures in the UK, using moulds produced and authorised by Eureka Miniatures of Australia, and therefore the figures are immediately available and in stock in the online shop. Figures are cast in high tin alloy for extra strength and crispness of detail.

Fighting 15s has decided not to continue supplying the old versions of AB’s Spanish fusiliers and grenadiers.

To celebrate the release of these fantastically detailed new figures, Fighting 15s has created a second White Uniform Christmas deal for customers in the European Union: buy four 32-figure Spanish fusilier battalions for only GBP52.50 – a saving of GBP5.10 on the cost of the figures bought individually.

The deal is available in the online shop until 19 December 2007.
