An incident has left Fighting 15s without the use of its usual vehicle for shows, and although we have an alternative, it does not allow as much stock or display material to be carried.
Therefore, although Fighting 15s will still be at Salute on stand TN18, we will have a greatly reduced selection of stock, and may not have our display cases.
Our usual vehicle should be repaired by Monday afternoon, the earliest time for which even an urgent appointment could be arranged.
Salute 2014 is upon us and Fighting 15s will be setting off early on Friday 11 April to head for the show. The last day for advance orders for Salute is therefore Thursday 10 April, ideally before 12 noon, when we will devote our time to last-minute orders and packing the car. Our last casting session for advance orders for Salute will be Wednesday 9 April.
Fighting 15s is on stand TN18 along with our usual companion and partner in Oozlum Games, Black Hat Miniatures. Nic Robson of Eureka Miniatures is on stand TL01, so as usual there will be a short trek between the two stands of the Eureka empire. Next year we hope to be together!
Fighting 15s will have only a selection of 28mm figures from Eureka Miniatures and the 15mm Science Fiction range from Oddzial Osmy with us at the show. This is a last-minute change based on another trader’s announcement and the presence of other traders, which means taking one of our popular lines no longer makes sense.
Fighting 15s will not have 20mm or 15mm AB Figures, any of the other sizes from Eureka Miniatures, the 1:600 ranges from Oddzial Osmy, nor Shadowforge Miniatures at the show. These figures will be available only to advance order. We have made this decision based on available space in the car and the sales performance at shows, not online, over the past year. Online sales patterns are very different from what customers have been buying at shows.
