AB Figures: 15mm French 1815 infantry

Customers who subscribe to Eureka’s newsletter will no doubt already have seen the news that the first release of AB Figures’ 15mm 1815 French infantry is available. This close to Christmas, coupled with the seasonal closure of AB Figures/Eureka Miniatures, it is impossible for Fighting 15s to obtain stock until the new year.

However, Fighting 15s will not be ordering in stock. Instead, Fighting 15s will be supplied with licensed moulds by AB/Eureka to cast these figures in the UK. Update (19 May 2016): We regret that we currently have no news about when licensed moulds will be made available to Fighting 15s. All our worst estimates as to an arrival date for the moulds have slipped, and therefore we have stopped trying to predict when they will actually arrive in the UK. Production of moulds is entirely dependent on Eureka Miniatures’ mould-making schedule, over which Fighting 15s has no influence whatsoever.

The new British generals from AB are not yet released and Fighting 15s can therefore neither order them in nor obtain them.

All enquiries regarding the availability of these latest sculpts from Tony Barton will be directed to this post. Fighting 15s will post a news item to announce the availability of the figures once the moulds have arrived and have been tested.

AB Figures 15mm vignettes for 1815

AB-VIN01 Sergeant Ewart and the eagle of the 45th

AB-VIN01 Sergeant Ewart and the eagle of the 45th

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.

Eureka launches AB Figures website

ab_figures

Eureka Miniatures of Australia’s dedicated website for AB Figures is now live. The AB Figures website is separate from www.eurekamin.com.au, which now contains only Eureka’s own and other licensed ranges, although AB Figures will still be made and supplied by Eureka.

This has no effect on the Fighting 15s website, which continues to have both AB and Eureka Miniatures available from a single website. Fighting 15s continues to provide AB and Eureka figures imported from Australia, plus AB and Eureka figures cast under licence here in the UK.

The launch, however, has seen an increase in the price of AB 15mm figures, from 0.91 cents to 0.95 cents for foot figures, from AUD 1.82 to AUD 1.91 for mounted figures, and from AUD 3.64 to AUD 3.82 for cannon. This is the first price rise for 15mm AB Figures in Australia since late 2007.

Prices in the UK, of course, fluctuate according to the exchange rate. Fighting 15s prices’ have been going down as the exchange rate improves, with two reductions in the past year or so. Accordingly, given recent improvements in the exchange rate, Fighting 15s has decided to hold prices at their current level, so there is no increase in the price of 15mm AB Figures for Fighting 15s’ customers.

In addition, Fighting 15s has reinstated its offer of free standard delivery for UK online orders of more than £100 ex-tax ex-delivery in the shopping cart. This applies to all the ranges that Fighting 15s supplies.
