PayPal payments restored at Fighting 15s

PayPal payments have been restored in the online shop. I apologize for any inconvenience caused by their temporary removal, while links between my PayPal account and my business bank account were being restored.

WorldPay payments (and therefore telephone payments using a credit card) are temporarily suspended while Fighting 15s changes bank. This is a direct result of dissatisfaction with HSBC relating to the break in PayPal links. Unfortunately, notifying WorldPay of a change of bank account needs to be done via snail mail using a number of bits of information about my new account that will be arriving over the next few days.

Extra Impetus 3 arrives in stock at Fighting 15s

Extra Impetus 3

Fighting 15s has taken delivery of Extra Impetus 3, the third supplement for Lorenzo Sartori’s ancients and medievals wargames rules. This full-colour softback comprises 44 pages plus covers and includes 46 army lists that cover four periods: Italy in the 15th century, Europe in the 15th century, the Wars of the Roses, and the Ottoman Empire.

Extra Impetus 3 costs £14.50.

The main rules are now back in stock, along with the first two supplements. All are available in the Fighting 15s shop.

Fighting 15s acquires 15mm lines from Oddzial Osmy

Fighting 15s has bought the rights to the 15mm lines of figures produced by Oddzial Osmy of Poland. Marcin at Oddzial Osmy is focusing on his 1:600 (3mm) ranges by expanding the existing moderns and WWII ranges, and beginning work on new eras.

Fighting 15s has the masters for the 15mm Napoleonics, and is expecting the masters for the 15mm Medievals (Tannenberg/Grunwald) shortly. There will probably be a break in production while we get some changes made to the range – mainly turning the horses into more wargamer-friendly one-part castings, and putting the bayonets on the correct side of some of the muskets. The packaging will also be changed to the usual 8 infantry, 4 mounted format that we use for other ranges.

Please note that the Oddzial Osmy Napoleonics are on the whole smaller than the ranges we offer from AB and Eureka, and for which we are agents. Fighting 15s has acquired the range to ensure it does not slip out of production, and has the permission of Nic Robson of Eureka Miniatures to do so.

Impetus and Extra Impetus 3 are on their way

Lorenzo Sartori has just let us know that our new stocks of Impetus, Extra Impetus 1 and Extra Impetus 2 are on their way from Italy. Fighting 15s hopes to have this popular rules set and its supplements in stock again in the next few days.

Along with restocks, Fighting 15s will also be taking delivery of the brand new and somewhat shiny Extra Impetus 3.
