Fighting 15s has received its initial stocks of AB Figures’ 15mm vignettes for the Waterloo campaign, 1815.

The sets are as follows:

AB-VIN01 Sergeant Ewart and the eagle of the 45th (£9.47 inc VAT)
AB-VIN02 The Royal Dragoons and the eagle of the 105th (£10.74 inc VAT)
AB-VIN03 The 69th foot and the 8th cuirassiers at Quatre Bras (£12.00 inc VAT)

The vignettes are available to buy now in the Fighting 15s online shop, and for convenience are for a short time listed in the New Arrivals section.

Following a price reduction in May, Fighting 15s has enacted a second decrease for AB Figures this year in response to the improving exchange rate. Our price reduction in July 2015 means the prices of AB 15mm foot are 60p each inc VAT, mounted are £1.20 each inc VAT and cannon are £2.40 each inc VAT. We will continue to review prices in response to changes in the exchange rate, but will only adjust prices when the rate has evidently stabilized for a suitable period.

Prices of Eureka Miniatures were also reduced in July, taking prices to 50p inc VAT for 15mm and 18mm foot, £1.00 inc VAT for 15mm and 18mm mounted, and £1.87 inc VAT for 28mm foot, and technically £3.72 and a ha’penny inc VAT for 28mm mounted.

Summer hours at Fighting 15s

The British summer has at last arrived, and that means here on the sunny Isle of Wight, working hours at Fighting 15s change depending on the weather.

When it is hot here – and it may well not be hot and sunny where you are in the frozen north of the UK – Fighting 15s works early morning to about 1pm, and then shuts down until the cooler evening air arrives, at which point we again start work. The beach is five minutes’ walk away and the sea provides welcome relief in the afternoon.

The sounds reasons for this are that after 1pm or so, our workshop is unbearably hot. Casting is pretty much impossible after as early as 10am.

If it’s a wet, cool day, then we pretty much work as normal.

So, if you suspect that on a hot afternoon that we are slacking off, down on the beach with an ice cream with our feet in the water, you’re probably right. Your order will be dealt with once temperatures become bearable.
