Flags are GBP3.25 (inc VAT) per sheet and are available in the Fighting 15s shop. The number in brackets is the number of flags per sheet.

Fighting 15s has a few unusual flags in preparation to meet special requests from customers, but the arrival of the Swiss flags means the Flags for AB range for the nations of the Napoleonic Wars is almost complete.

Fighting 15s will have the new Swiss flags as well as the rest of the Flags for AB range at Claymore, Edinburgh, on 2 August.

Eureka’s 18mm Elves of the Lofty Spire (High Elves) are now available to special order in the Fighting 15s shop.

Please note that we do not yet have stocks of these figures, and therefore they may take eight or more weeks to arrive in the UK.

Payments made via the online shop using PayPal or WorldPay are automatically taken at the time of ordering, not the time of dispatch. To have payment taken at the time of dispatch, please use the option in the shopping cart to make a telephone payment and phone Fighting 15s with your card details.

Scale Creep licenses Fighting 15s to cast 15mm ACW range

Fighting 15s is delighted to announce that it is now licensed to cast the excellent 15mm American Civil War figures from Scale Creep Miniatures of the USA.

The deal means that Fighting 15s is now able to offer packs of Scale Creep ACW infantry at GBP2.50 for 8 figures, or GBP7.25 for a unit pack of 24 figures including command, giving EU gamers the opportunity to buy these figures at prices that are comparable with pack prices in the USA. Long shipping times for Scale Creep figures that are out of stock should now be a thing of the past.

Scale Creep’s ACW range is designed to be broadly compatible in height with the large 15mm ACW figures from AB that Fighting 15s also casts under licence. The licensing deal means that Scale Creep figures offer a considerable cost saving, however, for ACW gamers on a budget.

In making the new production moulds for the range, Fighting 15s has taken the opportunity to ruggedize the range so it withstands handling even better.

The range currently comprises infantry in forage cap, slouch hat and Hardee hat. Work has begun on the cavalry and artillery for the range, and we hope to have information about new releases in the near future.

The figures are available now in the Fighting 15s shop.

PayPal Express added to shopping cart

Customers who use the Fighting 15s shop should now notice that a PayPal Express option has appeared in the shopping cart. This option greatly reduces checkout time for customers who have a PayPal account because it bypasses a number of stages in the checkout procedure. We hope that customers find this option useful.

It is unlikely, however, to solve the problem that PayPal appears to have in allowing customers in one country to have their figures sent to a shipping address in another country. That still requires a manual solution – an email to Fighting 15s.

Customers should note that PayPal Express Checkout uses the customer’s delivery address that is registered with PayPal, and Fighting 15s is provided only with that address.
