Fighting 15s to resume shows schedule in autumn

Fighting 15s will not attend Salute on 28 March 2009. My wife’s illness is putting severe constraints on time, and I do not expect to be able to prepare for the show. Obviously I have not taken a decision to drop the biggest show in the UK gaming calendar lightly.

Janet is expected to have made a full recovery from leukaemia and be out of hospital for good in late spring. She will probably most need my care and attention around the time of Salute and for weeks afterwards.

I plan to resume Fighting 15s’ usual show attendances in early autumn, most probably starting with Colours.

Please note that Black Hat Miniatures’ attendance at Salute is not affected, and Mike will simply expand to occupy the full 12 foot of table space. Fighting 15s may well be marked on the floor plan of Salute, but you will find only Black Hat, our partner in Oozlum Games. I do not expect to be able to get to Mike’s before Salute, and therefore I am not in a position to take advance orders to leave with him.

Camelot Miniatures ranges arrive at Fighting 15s

Fighting 15s is delighted to announce that it has added Camelot Miniatures of Italy to its line-up of wargames figures makers. We have received our first shipment from the company, which brings into stock most of its growing range of 15mm Ancients and Medievals wargames figures, and the figures are available to buy now in the Fighting 15 online shop.

The 15mm Ancients ranges include Republican Romans, Greeks and Huns; the 15mm Medieval ranges include Arabs, Crusaders, Rus, and Vikings. We aim to add the 13th century medievals in our next shipment. Packs include 8 foot, or 4 mounted, or 6 foot command figures, and cost GBP3.60 each (about euros4.00 depending on how the exchange rate goes) including VAT at 15%. VAT is deducted for customers outside the European Union.

The 15mm infantry follow the modern trend for larger figures, and typically measure about 17mm foot to eye. We regret that we currently only have pictures of the Republican Romans.

The arrival of these fine figures helps fill a gap in the Fighting 15s line-up, which until now has largely bypassed these periods of warfare in 15mm.

New shipment arrives from Eureka

Fighting 15s has received its first shipment of figures of the new year from Eureka Miniatures of Australia, containing both AB and Eureka figures. The shipment covers our consignment references 0149, 0150 and 0151, which date back to late November and early December. We will be dealing with back orders relating to those consignment reference numbers as soon as possible.

Our parcel also contained three licensed moulds from Eureka for 15mm AB Figures, which will also help alleviate shortages of Imperial French line infantry and French hussars and line lancers, as we will be able to cast them to order in the UK.
