Eureka Miniatures: 28mm Modern Armed Afghans

Eureka Miniatures: 28mm Armed Afghan Forces

Eureka Miniatures: 28mm Armed Afghan Forces

Eureka Miniatures’ 28mm armed Afghans are probably the figures we have been asked about most in the past month. We now have them in stock, after a shipment from Eureka touched down this afternoon.

Fighting 15s currently stocks only the following items in the range:

100MOD70 Armed Afghans, 15-figure set
100MOD76 Type 63 Rocket Launcher with ammunition boxes and two Afghan crew

The set costs GBP24.75; the rocket launcher and crew GBP11.00. Prices include VAT and reflect the poor exchange rate we are currently getting against the Australian dollar.

Our initial stocks are limited. We have more on the way soon.

Shadowforge: 28mm Politburo Worker Battalion

Shadwofroge: 28mm Politburo Worker Battalion

Shadowforge: 28mm Politburo Worker Battalion

Shadowforge’s latest arrivals in the UK at Fighting 15s include the Politburo Worker Battalion.

Codes and details are as follows:

1SCM155 Politburo Worker Battalion Command (4 figures)
1SCM156 Politburo Worker Battalion Support Weapons (4 figures)
1SCM157 Politburo Worker Battalion Infantry (4 figures)

Command and Support packs are GBP9.75 each; the Infantry pack is GBP8.50. Prices include VAT.

Fighting 15s regrets that the worsening exchange rate with the Australian dollar means that prices of most Shadowforge figures have had to rise by about 10 per cent with immediate effect.

Captain Jane’s Rifles arrive at Fighting 15s

Laughing Monk: Captain Jane's Rifles

Fighting 15s regrets that poor exchange rate with the Australian dollar means we have had to increase the prices of most Laughing Monk figures by about GBP0.25 each.

AB Figures: 15mm Napoleonic French guard cavalry join single-figure codes

Fighting 15s is now able to cast to order all the codes comprising AB’s 15mm French Napoleonic Imperial Guard cavalry, and as a result has added them to the single figure codes in the Fighting 15s shop.

Prices for single figure codes include delivery and VAT, and single figure codes do not increase the weight of orders in the cart when it calculates postage due on an order (single figure codes are zero-weighted for delivery). The cart, however, does apply a minimum delivery charge. Single figure codes are intended to allow customers more flexibility when compiling units.

Our moulds for 15mm AB Figures are made for us by Eureka Miniatures of Australia, the officially licensed manufacturer of 15mm AB Figures. Licensed moulds allow Fighting 15s to cast 15mm AB Figures to order rather than having to wait for deliveries to arrive from Australia.
