Fighting 15s now has in stock the re-released 20mm Fallschirmjager from AB Figures. This is the second release from Eureka Miniatures of AB’s 20mm WWII range, which is being cast using new production moulds. The third release, the SS, should be with Fighting 15s sometime after Salute.
Fighting 15s now has in stock the 28mm armed Somalis from Eureka Miniatures.
Codes in the range are as follows:
100MOD210 Somali gunmen with AK47
100MOD211 Somali gunmen with G3 rifle
100MOD212 Somali gunmen with RPG 7 rocket launcher
100MOD213 Somali gunman with PK LMG

100MOD215 Masked Somali gunmen with G3 rifle
100MOD216 Masked Somali gunmen with RPG 7 rocket launcher
100MOD217 Masked Somali gunman with PK LMG
100MOD218 12.7mm Dshk MG on antiaircraft mount, two Somali crew
Individual figures are £2.05 each including VAT, and the 12.7mm Dshk with two crew is £7.57.
Fighting 15s now has in stock the modern African market stalls and the African mob from Eureka Miniatures.
There are three stalls in the range: 100CIV36 fabric stall, 100CIV37 trinket stall and 100CIV38 food stall. The stalls are £10.25 each including VAT. All three are available as a set, 100CIV39, for £27.57 including VAT.
The African mob, 100CIV41, comprises 8 figures and is priced at £15.17 including VAT. This is a recoded item: its original intended code of 100CIV40 already existed in the form of the banjo-playing, lamppost-leaning Stanley Accrington – hardly mob material. 🙂
Fighting 15s now has in stock the 28mm Saladin and retinue sets, both foot and mounted, from Eureka Miniatures of Australia. In addition, we also have single figures of Saladin, his standard bearer and a Saracen trumpeter, which are otherwise available in the foot set.
The set of eight mounted figures is £31.00 and includes seven mounted figures on horses and a kettle drummer on a camel; the foot figure set contains 14 figures and costs £24.14. Individual foot figures are £2.05 each. All prices include VAT.
Fighting 15s now has in stock the latest additions to the 15mm AB Figures range of Napoleonics: Austrian hussars at rest (AB-KK60) and Austrian uhlans charging (AB-KK65). The additions neatly fill in the long-existing gaps in the list of codes for the Austrian cavalry.
Both codes are currently imported from Eureka Miniatures in Australia, and so may be subject to shipping delays if Fighting 15s’ stocks are substantially diminished. Other Austrian cavalry from AB is currently cast here in the UK under licence.
The figures are £5.20 inc VAT for a pack of four troopers with horses. The charging uhlans are one-piece castings.
