Fighting 15s intends to expand on the original range in future.
It’s the time of year when Fighting 15s has to think about Christmas and obtaining stock from overseas suppliers in time to fulfil orders placed in the run-up to the festive season.
At this point Fighting 15s usually has time before Christmas for one more bulk delivery from Eureka Miniatures of Australia. Eureka supplies our ranges of AB Figures, Eureka Miniatures, Shadowforge and Laughing Monk. This shipment usually arrives in the first week of December or slightly after.
Eureka Miniatures typically closes for two weeks over Christmas and New Year, and comes back from the break to prepare for CanCon at the end of January. Our first shipment of the New Year therefore usually does not arrive until mid-February. If we are unable to obtain items from Eureka on our early December shipment, delivery of items that are out of stock, go out of stock or that are obtained to special order is not likely to occur until mid-February 2016.
We will get two more deliveries from Oddzial Osmy of Poland, in early November and early December. Marcin at Oddzial Osmy, however, usually manages to keep going over the festive season and we should then receive another shipment in early January. Our order for stock on that shipment is placed by mid-December.
Subject to those delivery times and packing errors by suppliers (rare, but they happen), Fighting 15s will try its best to get customers their orders in time for Christmas. Items that cannot be obtained will follow as soon as delivery times permit.
Last posting day for 1st class post in the UK is 21 December 2015. Fighting 15s is shut at weekends and on the UK public holidays of 25 and 28 December 2015 and 1 January 2016.
