Fighting 15s is now closed for Christmas. I hope to be up and running on 28th December providing that my wife lets me escape to the shed to fulfil some orders. Nowadays her wishes take priority over everything.
Thank you to all my customers over the past year who have shown sympathy and understanding while my wife has been seriously ill. Your good wishes and support have been most appreciated. I hope, in due course, to be fully back up to speed in all areas of the business.
For those of you for which it is possible, I wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year. For those of you, like me, who have been in adverse circumstances, you have my heartfelt wishes that 2010 turns out to be so much better.
Lasalle is back in stock again. Fighting 15s has already sold out of this new set of Napoleonic wargames rules twice over.
December has been an exceptionally busy month for sales – more so than usual for the time of year. Please note that Fighting 15s cannot guarantee that orders placed or processed this week or later will reach UK customers in time for Christmas.
Depletion of a few codes means that orders may have to be dispatched in two parts, with the second part to follow in the new year after Fighting 15s receives fresh stocks.
As always, Ian is unable to answer queries about availability of codes because availability may suddenly change because of the large number of orders being processed.
Paid-for orders placed in the online shop continue to receive priority over any orders received by phone, email or post and for which payment has yet to be taken or arranged. So if you’ve submitted a special request by email, or phoned through an order and left payment details, your order takes second place to orders for which payment has been taken automatically in the online shopping cart.
Eureka Miniatures’ latest release, The Modern Prometheus, inspired by Dr Frankenstein and the Monster, is now available in the Fighting 15s online shop. A limited number of complete sets are in stock at Fighting 15s; the individual items are not available separately.
This resin and metal kit is provided unassembled and unpainted, and costs GBP15.75, including VAT.
Fighting 15s now has fresh supplies of Eureka’s amazing 28mm toad-mounted frog cavalry, and the range is therefore now back in stock.
Fighting 15s will be open for business over the festive season, apart from at weekends and on bank holidays. That said, family commitments may mean that no one is available to take your call or process orders on other days, and therefore there may be a slight delay in processing orders.
Few orders usually come in from 21 December to 26 December, because the postal system cannot guarantee to get orders to customers in that time, and therefore Fighting 15s winds down from 21 December onwards in order to focus on the festivities.
Fighting 15s wishes its customers all the best for the festive season and the new year.
Following the success of the Christmas Lights promotion of a few years ago, Fighting 15s is again running a special promotion on 15mm French Napoleonic light troops from AB Figures. This time it’s the turn of the light cavalry.
For a limited time, customers have the opportunity to buy Fighting 15s’ special Christmas Lights offer of two 24-man regiments of French light cavalry for just GBP45.00, saving GBP5.40 on the price of the figures if bought using our standard four-figure packs. There are several permutations of chasseurs a cheval, hussars and line lancers for this small brigade of cavalry, plus options to add elite companies to the hussars and chasseurs. Regiments each comprise 20 troopers, two officers and two trumpeters.
The figures provide enough cavalry for a small brigade in 1:20 ratio games such as General de Brigade, and the hussars and chasseurs combination provides enough light cavalry for a Light Cavalry brigade in Lasalle (though you will need to add a horse battery to provide the full option).
Figures in the Fighting 15s Christmas Lights deal are cast to order in the UK using licensed moulds produced by Eureka Miniatures. Because the figures are cast to order, there may be a delay in processing and dispatching each order.
The 2009 Christmas Lights deal is available now in the Fighting 15s shop.
