Here at Fighting 15s we love Aude Historica’s figures and dealing with the charming Ugo del Col. But arrivals are a bit sporadic and, as at Christmas, you never know quite what you’re going to get. It largely resembles what we order, but there are sometimes interesting variations…
Our latest order has taken something like four months to complete, thanks partly to the Italian shows season and because Aude uses a contract caster. So what was bright shiny and new when we ordered it is a little less hot, and we will have to play catch up to get the latest additions to Aude’s range of 15mm First Italian War of Independence 1848 figures and to bring in the promising Colonials range.
None the less, we now have the following new codes in stock for the 1848 range:
AU006 Austrian Hussars
AU007 Austrian dragoons
AU008 Austrian uhlans
BB003 Borbon artillery
BB007 Borbon generals
MI004 Milan “Battalion of Death” and Lombardy Finanzieri
RO004 Roman Republic Garibaldini
RO005 Roman Republic Bersaglieri del Po
RO008 Roman Republic Lancers of Death (Garibaldi’s lancers)
TO003 Tuscan Civic Guards in helmets
Packs contain 24 infantry or 12 cavalry, including command, two guns and eight crew, or four mounted and four foot generals. They cost the somewhat princely GBP10.00 per pack including VAT thanks to the appalling exchange rate with the euro. And if you think that’s bad, the packs cost 12 euros each direct from Aude. Codes on the packs may be at variance from those on the Aude website, so please go by the description of the contents.
We are in the process of putting some of Aude’s better pictures on the site (some don’t meet our requirements for quality and level of detail), but they are viewable at www.audehistorica.com
We have at last found time to update the single figures lists for the ranges we stock, and they are now available from the Links & Downloads section of the online store (see the Information box at the bottom left-hand corner of the Fighting 15s site). The lists supersede all previous versions of the lists (and replace lists published way back in November 2007). Postage is detailed as usual on the order form, and there is a new minimum postage as a result of the annual increase from the Royal Mail.
The single figures lists give all the individual codes for figures sold on the website where they are available singly (some codes are only sold in packs). Note that the codes for AB Figures and Eureka Miniatures have a different prefix in the lists so we know that you are ordering single figures. Codes for these ranges on the website are pack codes: confuse the two and you will not get what you expect.
The ability to order single figures does not mean that variants can be specified if they exist. We are supplied figures in a random mix and therefore cannot guarantee to sell specific variants. Variants are therefore always supplied as a random mix.
Our downloadable lists have been updated and are available from the Links & Downloads section of the shop, or from the appropriate links at our news site at www.oozlumgames.co.uk. Updates and corrections have been made to the 15mm AB lists, the 15mm lists (figure sizes up to 20mm) and the 28mm lists (figure sizes from 28mm upwards).
Notes on the lists have been updated to include a warning about the consequences of VAT registration, which may – we repeat, may – happen late in 2007, based on current sales figures. However, we aim to operate below the VAT threshold for as long as possible.
Customers who requested lists at Salute will be sent the new versions shortly.
Our downloadable lists have been updated to include the latest releases from Eureka Miniatures, Flashing Blade, Aude, Oddzial Osmy and Flags for AB. The lists are available in the Downloads section of the Fighting 15s shop, or from www.oozlumgames.co.uk.
Four lists make up our entire catalogue: 15mm AB Figures, Flags for AB, 20mm and smaller figures, and 28mm and larger figures.
Request for lists made over the past month will be fulfilled over the next few days.
Fighting 15s will be at SELWG, Crystal Palace, London, on Sunday 22 October. We share a stand with Black Hat Miniatures, and will therefore be identified on any floorplan as Gladiator Games owing to Black Hat’s recent purchase of that company. This will be confusing, no doubt, but there’s not much anyone can do about that.
A limited selection of AB 15mm Napoleonic Imperial French infantry will be available in bargain packs only (36 pieces), suitable for General de Brigade. We may also have a few packs of AB French cavalry.
Also available will be figures from Eureka Miniatures, Shadowforge Miniatures, Aude, Flashing Blade, Scale Creep and Oddzial Osmy.
A reminder that we cannot take cards at shows, so it is cash or cheques only.
We have at long last had the rest of our shipment of 15mm figures from Aude for the First Italian War of Independence 1848. The figures are now in the online shop, priced GBP8.50 per pack (GBP8.00 for the resin barricades).
The range currently consists of the following codes:
Sardinia (Piedmontese Army)
RS002 Granatieri de Sardegna
RS004 Line artillery
RS006 Horse carabiniers
RS007 Piedmontese generals
AU001 German line infantry
AU003 Line artillery
MI001 Civilian insurgents
Venice & Vicenza
VE001 Guardia Civica
VE003 Galateo battalion and Crociati vicentri
Papal States & Roman Republic
RO001 Swiss Line infantry
RO010 Generals (inc Garibaldi & Mazzini)
Packs consist of 24 infantry, 12 cavalry, 2 guns & crew, or four mounted generals and four foot officers. Additions are planned across the range, except the Sardinians which appear to be complete from Aude’s lists.
Now we have a reasonable range of figures in stock, we will begin photographing them for the shop. Pictures should appear in the near future.
We have the first figures in stock in Aude's 15mm Italian War of Independence 1848 range. Packs contain 24 figures including command – enough to make one regiment of two battalions, according to Aude.
Initial releases are line infantry, granatieri and bersaglieri for the Kingdom of Sardinia, and jagers for the Austro-Hungarians. We shortly hope to have cavalry and artillery for Sardinia, and infantry and artillery for the Austro-Hungarians.
Packs are GBP9.50 each.
