Fighting 15s’ previous discount scheme ended at midnight on 31 December, and a new one is now in place.
In January 2012 only, UK customers can benefit from free standard delivery on orders of over £50.00 inc tax in item value. All orders sent by free standard delivery will usually only be dispatched when all the items are in stock. The discount ends at midnight on 31 January 2012. UK Special Delivery is still available at cost.
The break points for automatic discounts based on order value have changed. Break point values are based on the order sub-total (ex tax, ex delivery) and occur at £100, £200, £400, £600 and £800. The discount at each break point is 2%, and the maximum discount is therefore 10%.
In addition, a number of customers who supported us during a fairly bleak 2011 now have coupons for a 5% loyalty discount. The conditions for qualifying for this discount are outlined in previous news items.
Marcin at Oddzial Osmy has emailed to say that Fighting 15s’ order is at last ready to dispatch and therefore fresh stocks of the 15mm SF range, plus the new 1:600 releases for December, should be in the UK within the next week, holidays permitting. Demand has been such that Fighting 15s has been out of stock of the 15mm SF range since mid November 2010.
Fighting 15s will remain up and running over the Christmas break, and orders will be dealt with as soon as commitments to family and friends permit, and provided that the local post office is open. In general, Fighting 15s will definitely be closed on bank holidays.
Unfortunately, our delivery of 15mm SF from Oddzial Osmy of Poland has not yet arrived, and Fighting 15s regrets that customers that are waiting for these figures will probably not get them before Christmas. Sorry: they were expected to be here by now.
A big thank you to all our customers over the past year. And a reminder that anyone who feels that they qualify for the Fighting 15s 5% online loyalty discount (see News, 1 December) should get in touch for their discount code for 2012.
Merry Christmas and a happy new year.
Fighting 15s’ list of single figure codes for 15mm AB Figures – Napoleonics, Ancients and ACW – has at long last been revised and updated, and is now available to download.
The list is mainly intended for use with the Special Request option for AB Figures on the website, but can also be used for traditional mail order by phone and post. The list does not contain price codes or prices; prices can be obtained by phoning or emailing Fighting 15s.
The list is available at: 15mm_ab_codes
Eureka Miniatures’ 15mm SF Ventaurans, based on the 25mm designs made by Denizen Miniatures, are now available in the Fighting 15s shop.
The range comprises the following codes:
300SCI10 Ventauran trooper with assault rifle
300SCI11 Ventauran trooper with Section Automatic Weapon SAW
300SCI12 Ventauran trooper officer
300SCI13 Ventauran trooper team with LAW
300SCI14 Ventauran trooper with auto-cannon
300SCI15 Ventauran comms trooper
Prices work out at £0.65 each, but eight-figure packs of the basic trooper are just £5.00. Prices include VAT at 20%. Fighting 15s has good, but ultimately limited stocks of this range, and the festive break may interfere with our ability to get restocks quickly.
Eureka Miniatures’ 28mm modern US Marine Corps range is now available to buy in the Fighting 15s shop. Our initial stock of the range is limited, and if it sells out quickly we do not expect to get new stock until the new year.
Eureka Miniatures’ 28mm Beowulf set in action poses is now available to buy in the Fighting 15s shop. Based on demand for the previous set, Fighting 15s is only stocking the whole set of 13 figures, not the individuals.
This year, Fighting 15s’ Christmas present to customers in the UK and Europe is a reward for anyone who has repeatedly come back for more of our excellent ranges of models: a 5% loyalty discount, valid on any and all online orders placed from 1 December 2011 to midnight on 30 November 2012.
The criteria to earn the loyalty discount are simple: customers must either have placed and completed two or more orders totalling over £1,000 over the past year (from 1 December 2010 to 30 November 2011), or have placed and completed five or more orders of any value. The discount is only valid within Europe (including the UK, EU member states, and countries such as Russia).
I have already emailed a number of customers with codes in recognition of their repeat custom over the year. Anyone who believes they qualify for the discount should email Fighting 15s at email@example.com for a discount code, which needs to be entered in the shopping cart.
