A word on release dates. Oddzial Osmy described these as its releases for July; Fighting 15s ordered when they were announced to stockists in July, Oddzial Osmy then had a production run, and Fighting 15s actually received them in August. It’s easier to refer to them as the August releases, because that’s when they become available to the public, and it’s less confusing than to refer to them as releases for a month that has already long gone. Fighting 15s adopts this system for all Oddzial Osmy’s releases.
Fighting 15s has released its own range of 3mm (1:600) terrain suitable for use with infantry, vehicles and aircraft from Oddzial Osmy.
The initial release includes Middle Eastern buildings and terrain tiles suitable for a wide range of conflicts in the region. The codes, descriptions and introductory prices are:
MEB01 Large and mid-sized buildings (4 random individual models), £3.00
MEB02 Small buildings (6 random individual models), £3.00
MEB03 Large settlement with walled compounds, 1 model, £8.00
MEB04 Medium settlement with walled compounds, 1 model, £6.00
MEB05 Small farm with irrigation ditches, 1 model, £6.00
MEB06 Small settlement with well, 1 model, £6.00
MEB07 Mosque with minaret, 1 model, £5.00
All prices include VAT. All models are cast to order in the UK in polyurethane resin and orders may therefore take 28 days to fulfil. Please note that the fine nature of detail on these models means that Fighting 15s uses vacuum degassing to reduce or eliminate air bubbles to therefore ensure the highest possible quality of casting on the top surface of the models. This is more time consuming than simply casting without degassing, but we feel it is essential for these models.
The buildings have been designed for Fighting 15s by the talented Chris Rees of Tablescape and scaled to suit the height of infantry figures from Oddzial Osmy.
The range is available to buy now in the Fighting 15s shop.
