Extra flags for 15mm AB Austrians

We have now overhauled all the Austrian Napoleonic infantry flags in the 15mm Flags for AB range so that sheets now contain nine infantry flags as opposed to six. The price per sheet remains unchanged at GBP3.25 including VAT (or about GBP2.77 ex VAT for customers outside the EU), making the sheets better value for money.

Some sheets changed several months back, but we have only just exhausted all the old stock.

FAQs page added to Fighting 15s shop

Our online shop now has an FAQs page that deals with some of the more common questions customers have about orders from Fighting 15s.

The page replaces our dedicated news page in the shop. News is now presented in headline form in a sidebar to the right-hand side of the shop and published in full at

Wargames figure painter Darren in motorbike crash

Darren Rees, one of our talented figure painters and customers, has phoned to tell us that he has been involved in a crash on his motorbike. Darren has fractured an ankle and his collar bone and is clearly unable to paint toy soldiers until he recovers. He has asked us to pass on the information on the Fighting 15s site because the news affects several of our customers. We are glad to help.

We wish him the speediest of recoveries.

Vapnartak heads 2008 shows schedule for Fighting 15s

Fighting 15s’ wargames show schedule for 2008 includes only six shows: Vapnartak (York, 3 February), Salute (London, 19 April), Carronade (Falkirk, 10 May), Claymore (Edinburgh, August), Colours (Newbury, 13-14 September), and Warfare (Reading, 22-23 November).

We regret that we have dropped Cavalier from our schedule because it clashes with other commitments (Black Hat Miniatures is still attending Cavalier).

Black Hat Miniatures shares a stand with us at all shows that we attend in England, and we may therefore be identified on a floorplan only by Black Hat’s name. Most commonly we will be identified as Fighting 15s/Black Hat Miniatures. Black Hat Miniatures is our partner in Oozlum Games, so no one should be surprised that we share a stand.

For all shows in Scotland we attend as Fighting 15s/Eureka Miniatures. Black Hat does not accompany us north of the border and we do not carry its ranges.

We cannot take every range to shows, and most of those we do take are usually sold as unit packs. To ensure that we have exactly what you want please order in advance by phone or email. Advance orders are essential for any show that we attend in Scotland.

We are happy to take advance orders by phone or email for 15mm AB Figures to be collected at shows. We do not sell 15mm AB Figures individually at shows, and if we have any of these figures available they are usually only in bargain packs.

Please note that we cannot take credit or debit cards at shows. If you order in advance, we can take card details and process payment in the week before the show.
