Fighting 15s has received the latest re-releases in the 20mm World War II range from AB Figures – the Wehrmacht.
The first release for the Wehrmacht comprises 13 infantry packs and one artillery pack – and there’s more to come later. The Wehrmacht join the existing re-releases of the US Paratroopers, SS and Fallschirmjager. The online shop has been updated and the codes are available to buy now.
Eureka Miniatures of Australia, the licence-holder for the AB range, is making new production moulds for the range to restore the quality of these fabulously sculpted figures by Tony Barton. Tony is also adding new figures to the make-up of the sets.
The latest releases are:
ING01 Infantry Section, marching (10 figures)
ING02 Infantry Section, advancing and skirmishing (10 figures)
ING03 Infantry Section, prone (10 figures)
ING04 Infantry Section, advancing cautiously (10 figures)
ING05 Infantry Section, advancing in zeltbahn (10 figures)
ING06 Infantry Section, in Fox Holes (11 half figures, 7 fox holes)
ING07 Senior NCO’s and Officers (6 figures)
ING08 Radio Operators (6 figures)
ING09 Panzerschreck/Panzerfausts (8 figures)
ING10 HMG Section, firing (6 figs, 2 MG34, 2 MG42)
ING11 HMG Section, marching (6 figures, MG34 & MG42)
ING12 8cm Mortars and crew (2 tubes, 7 figures)
ING13 Dead Germans (6 figures)
RTG01 German PAK 40 crew (4 figs plus accessories)
Figures are only available in packs, with VAT-inclusive prices in the EU as advised on the Fighting 15s website. VAT is deducted for customers outside the EU. Stock is imported from Eureka Miniatures of Australia and we may sometimes run out. Fighting 15s is the EU agent for Eureka Miniatures and AB Figures.
Fighting 15s has re-released the range of 15mm Teutonic Order and Polish forces for Tannenberg 1410 that were originally produced by Oddzial Osmy of Poland, and to which Fighting 15s now holds the rights.
The figures are being produced from new production moulds. The distinctive two-part horses of the range are a thing of the past, because the horses have been remastered as one-piece mounts. The range is also now cast in a traditional tin-lead alloy, rather than the strong and hard zinc-aluminium alloy favoured by Oddzial Osmy.
The initial releases are as follows:
MP01 Polish camp followers and peasant infantry
MP02 Polish and European knights (MP02 can be used to provide European knights for the Teutonic Order)
MP03 King Jagiello and retinue
MP04 Polish Czeladz (Polish cavalry)
MT01 Teutonic Order spearmen
MT02 Teutonic Order crossbowmen
MT03 Teutonic Order knights
MT04 Teutonic Order Grand Master and retinue
MT05 Teutonic Order Knechte
Packs contain 8 foot figure or 4 mounted, except the retinue packs which in basic form comprise three mounted and one foot. Packs cost £3.20 each including VAT.
Fighting 15s is currently remastering the Lithuanian forces necessary to complete the Polish army for Tannenberg. Unfortunately, the Lithuanian horse was left out of the original remastering, which has put back plans to release the Lithuanians at the same time as the Polish and the Teutonic Order. The Lithuanians are expected to be re-released in August 2014.
