And there’s our great five-year anniversary deal that gives customers who spend over GBP50.00 in value on Oddzial Osmy figures (excluding delivery) a GBP5.00 rebate (valid for orders up to New Year’s Eve). See our news page for full details.

Fighting 15s: online shop downtime, Monday 15 November

The Fighting 15s online shop will be unavailable for a few hours today while the hosting service switches it to a different server. Please be patient: everything should be back to normal by this evening.

Five years of tiny, tiny tanks at Fighting 15s

On Friday 12 November 2010 Fighting 15s will have been ordering in the 1:600 (3mm) ranges from Oddzial Osmy of Poland for five years. Since Fighting 15s championed this range from its early days, it has grown hugely in popularity to the extent that it is one of our best-selling ranges of figures.

To celebrate five years of selling tiny, tiny tanks and aircraft, Fighting 15s is offering a GBP 5.00 rebate on any order in the online shop for Oddzial Osmy figures (including 15mm) that exceeds GBP 50.00 in order value. Order value is the total of figures ordered excluding delivery and excluding other discounts, and the offer applies only to Oddzial Osmy figures. Items from other manufacturers do not count towards the total. The offer applies only to orders placed online in the Fighting 15s shop. The offer is valid worldwide.

The offer is valid from 12 November right through until New Year’s Eve 2010. Please note that Fighting 15s has to calculate the rebate manually, and the GBP 5.00 will be refunded once an order is packed and dispatched.

Fighting 15s’ existing discount system remains in place for this offer: for every multiple of GBP 75.00 spent up to GBP 300.00 , 2% is deducted from the order.

This promotion has now ended. Happy new year.
