Fighting 15s extends UK free delivery period

Fighting 15s has extended its offer of free standard UK delivery on orders of more than £50.00 until the end of the year. UK customers therefore don’t have to rush to make use of this discount by the original expiry date of the end of January 2012.

To qualify for the discount, customers must live in the UK, select standard UK delivery in the checkout as a delivery option, and complete an order whose sub-total is £41.67 ex VAT or more (i.e. a smidge over £50.00 inc VAT). Orders sent by free standard UK delivery are dispatched when all the items are available.

UK customers can still opt to pay for special delivery instead.

Advance orders for Salute 2012

Fighting 15s is due to be at Salute this year and will be operating its combined stand with Black Hat Miniatures as usual. As yet we don’t know our stand number, but will post details when they are available.

The Fighting 15s shop, however, now has the Collect at Salute option in the shopping cart, which allows orders to be made online and picked up at the show without the shopping cart adding a delivery charge. Fighting 15s puts this option in the shop early so we can get figures from abroad in time if they are required to complete an order. So, if you want figures that are obtained to special order for Salute, order them now, not a week before the show.

Please note that payment by card or PayPal is taken at the time of ordering. If you want to pay cash on the day, please choose the “pay by cheque” option; if you want to pay by card but have payment taken nearer the time of Salute, please use the telephone payment option and phone through your payment details. If the shopping cart is abandoned with the payment method incomplete, we will not order the figures.

As noted below, we cannot take orders for the new 1815 British from AB Figures for collection at Salute: these orders are handled through Eureka Miniatures. Orders for all other 15mm AB Figures should be directed through Fighting 15s.

A reminder that Fighting 15s cannot take card payments or cheques at Salute. All payments at the show to be made in cash sterling or, reception permitting, PayPal mobile only.

Waterloo-period 15mm British from AB Figures

Nic Robson of Eureka Miniatures has just provided Fighting 15s with details of the forthcoming 15mm 1815 British from AB Figures, sculpted by Tony Barton.

The figures will not be available until 21 April 2012, when they will be launched at Salute by Eureka Miniatures, which is taking a stand that should in theory be located next to Fighting 15s/Black Hat Miniatures. Fighting 15s itself will not take delivery of the figures until after the release date and cannot obtain them beforehand: if you want to get the figures at Salute, you will need to talk to Nic next door on the day.

Initial releases in the range will include British line infantry, British foot artillery, Belgian carabiniers, British light dragoons in shako, heavy dragoons in helmet, Household cavalry and Scots Greys, as well as a rocket troop. There will also be additions to the Highlanders to include firing and kneeling figures.

Although Fighting 15s cannot take orders for these figures at present, expressions of interest in the figures will help gauge the size of our initial shipment. So drop Ian a line. 🙂

Scale Creep ACW reverts to US-only production

Scale Creep Miniatures and Fighting 15s have by mutual agreement ended the licensing deal by which Fighting 15s produces Scale Creep’s 18mm ACW range in the UK. The range is now only available direct from Scale Creep in the US.

Thank you to all customers in the UK and Europe who have supported this range while Fighting 15s has represented it.
