Fighting 15s and Eureka Miniatures set to celebrate 10 years together

Eureka Miniatures of Australia and Fighting 15s will soon have been working together for 10 years, and to celebrate Fighting 15s is offering a special deal for customers who order in advance in the online shop for collection at Salute – the closest UK wargames show to our anniversary date.

Fighting 15s’ relationship with Eureka began on 7 February 2004, when an internet forum post about Eureka’s 18mm 1815 British prompted Fighting 15s’ owner Ian Marsh to email Eureka’s owner Nic Robson to ask whether the company had a UK agent. A negative answer prompted the infamous question of “Do you want one?”, resulting on 3 March 2004 in Fighting 15s placing its first trade order; a few weeks later the first figures arrived in the UK and were on sale by April.  Nic and Ian have therefore decided to accept 3 March as their anniversary date, although plan to raise a glass to each other at Salute 2014 on 12 April on their respective stands.

So what’s the deal?

Simply enter the discount code (code expired) into the Fighting 15s’ shopping basket and select the Collect at Salute delivery option to receive 10% off your order. The discount overrides any other discounts for which customers may also qualify, such as our valued customer discounts, order size or club discounts.

The small print

The discount code has expired. This information is for customers’ records only.  By 10 April 2014, Fighting 15s will be beyond packing or making any more advance orders for Salute. Fighting 15s reserves the right to change the expiry date of the discount code without notice, especially if the week before Salute gets too frantic.

The code must be typed as shown, with capital letters and no spaces, and will only work in conjunction with the special Collect at Salute delivery option.

The discount will only apply to items that Fighting 15s is actually able to supply for collection at Salute, the cost of items that cannot be supplied will be refunded. Customers are therefore encouraged to place orders in good time for items that have to be obtained from overseas suppliers such as Eureka Miniatures, and Fighting 15s will endeavour to obtain them as quickly as possible. Orders that are not collected  at Salute will be treated as cancelled orders and be refunded subject to charges arising from obtaining items that are made specially to order, as in Fighting 15s’ terms and conditions.

The discount is valid for all items – not just Eureka Miniatures – that are both listed in and can be purchased through the Fighting 15s online shop at www.fighting15sshop.co.uk and applies only to items that are ordered in advance through the online shop. The discount is not valid for orders placed by any other means, for example by telephone, by email or post, or for special advance items for Salute that are only available through Eureka Miniatures direct. The discount is valid for Fighting 15s’ prices at the time of ordering.

Although Fighting 15s has tested this discount code several times, it may be awkward and decide not to work because technology is not perfect: please let us know if this happens.

Fighting 15s’ highly organized customers that may be kicking themselves because they have already ordered for Salute need not fret, because the discount will be applied retrospectively to their orders. The gradual 10-year transformation of Ian from suspicious and spiky journalist to generally helpful and only occasionally spiky retailer has had benefits. 🙂 If only that transformation had finished before Nic Robson pulled out all his hair…

Fighting 15s is taking a reduced selection of stock to Salute 2014 – just 28mm Eureka Miniatures and 15mm Oddzial Osmy Science Fiction – and therefore encourages customers to use this discount code to order items that otherwise will not be available at the show, such as 15mm and 20mm AB Figures, and 1/600th scale Oddzial Osmy figures.
