Grand Prince Vytautas rides out in 15mm

ML-02 Lithuanian Grand Prince Vytautas and retinue

Following on the heels of the re-released 15mm Teutonic Order and Polish figures for the Battle of Tannenberg (Grünwald) 1410 come the Lithuanians. Formerly produced by Oddział Osmy of Poland, these figures are now available through Fighting 15s.

The Lithuanians comprise three packs:
ML01 Lithuanian Boyars
ML02 Grand Prince Vytautas and retinue
ML03 Lithuanian light cavalry

Each pack comprises four mounted figures with horses and costs £3.20 including VAT. There’s an option to add three extra figures to pack ML02 to boost the number of standard bearers and retainers.

The figures have been remastered, the original two-piece horse casting changed to one-piece castings, and new production moulds made. Figures come with a selection of cast weapons, and assembly is required.

The figures are listed in the New Arrivals section of the Fighting 15s website at www.fighting15sshop.co.uk/new-arrivals-808-c.asp

The figures complete Fighting 15s’ re-release of Oddzial Osmy’s 15mm Medievals, and our attention will now focus on returning the 15mm Napoleonics to production.

15mm Napoleonic Saxon Chevaulegers 1809

NSC-02 Saxon Chevauleger command 1809

Fighting 15s has re-released the 15mm 1809 Saxon chevaulegers formerly made by Oddzial Osmy of Poland. The chevaulegers have been remastered, have new production moulds and now come with one-piece horses, rather than the two-part horses of the originals: riders are still separate from the horses.

Figures are priced at £3.20 for four identical troopers and £1.60 for two command figures, with a standard bearer available as an option for an extra 80p. A unit pack of 12 figures including two command is £9.60. Prices include VAT.

Fighting 15s is in the gradual process of re-releasing all of Oddzial Osmy’s 15mm Napoleonic line. The Saxon chevaulegers join the Krakusi and Russian Cossacks in the line-up of re-releases.

For convenience, the figures are listed in the New Arrivals section of the Fighting 15s website at http://www.fighting15sshop.co.uk/new-arrivals-808-c.asp.
