Shadowforge’s 28mm Temple of the Light figures have now arrived in stock and we will be dispatching advance orders after our return from Claymore.
The first figures are the regular infantry – sword, axe and spear warriors, plus archers – which are available in packs of six figures at GBP12.00 per pack. The Temple of the Light has an Egyptian fantasy theme. Later releases include animal-headed priestesses and auxiliary troops.
The Temple of the Light figures are available in the Fighting 15s shop. We will have packs at Claymore on 2 August in Edinburgh, along with a selection from the Characters range, plus the Gangers/Scavengers and whatever else we can squeeze into the crates.

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.
We have updated our downloadable lists of single figure codes, which are available in the Links & Downloads section of the shop. New releases have been added, old mistakes removed and new ones introduced…
Eureka’s first release for its new Wars of the French Revolution range, the Napoleon at Arcola 1796 set (100WFR01), has arrived in stock and is now available in the Fighting 15s shop. The price of this set, which includes a resin bridge and five white metal figures, is GBP15.00.
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.
We have just taken delivery of a new consignment of plastic figure bases from EM-4, and all codes in this line are now back in stock – including the very popular 25mm square base. EM-4 bases are available in our online shop.
Fighting 15s now stocks fantasy wargames rules Armies of Arcana, which is available to buy in the online shop.
Armies of Arcana is in its fifth edition, runs to 132 pages, and is in full colour throughout. The rules provide 17 army lists, with a points system for creating your own fantasy armies.
The rules cost GBP20.00 and are zero-rated for VAT.
We have received our initial consignment of Eureka Miniatures’ 28mm Daemons from its Movie Monsters range. There are 12 variants spread across two codes – 100MMR08 Daemon, and 100MMR09 Daemon with weapon. Each figure costs GBP1.75 inc VAT, and the Daemons are available now in the online shop.
Figures are supplied unassembled and unpainted, and variants are supplied at random.
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.

Packs contain 15 vehicles, or 8 aircraft or helicopters, and cost GBP2.35 each inc VAT (GBP2.00 ex VAT to customers outside the EU).
Note that our policy on ordering new releases from Oddzial Osmy has changed. Worsening market conditions mean that we now wait until we can put together an order size that justifies shipping costs, rather than just order in the new releases each month. This means we can better weather the poor exchange rate without having to increase prices on this range.
