Scale Creep ACW reverts to US-only production

Scale Creep Miniatures and Fighting 15s have by mutual agreement ended the licensing deal by which Fighting 15s produces Scale Creep’s 18mm ACW range in the UK. The range is now only available direct from Scale Creep in the US.

Thank you to all customers in the UK and Europe who have supported this range while Fighting 15s has represented it.

Scale Creep licenses Fighting 15s to cast 15mm ACW range

Fighting 15s is delighted to announce that it is now licensed to cast the excellent 15mm American Civil War figures from Scale Creep Miniatures of the USA.

The deal means that Fighting 15s is now able to offer packs of Scale Creep ACW infantry at GBP2.50 for 8 figures, or GBP7.25 for a unit pack of 24 figures including command, giving EU gamers the opportunity to buy these figures at prices that are comparable with pack prices in the USA. Long shipping times for Scale Creep figures that are out of stock should now be a thing of the past.

Scale Creep’s ACW range is designed to be broadly compatible in height with the large 15mm ACW figures from AB that Fighting 15s also casts under licence. The licensing deal means that Scale Creep figures offer a considerable cost saving, however, for ACW gamers on a budget.

In making the new production moulds for the range, Fighting 15s has taken the opportunity to ruggedize the range so it withstands handling even better.

The range currently comprises infantry in forage cap, slouch hat and Hardee hat. Work has begun on the cavalry and artillery for the range, and we hope to have information about new releases in the near future.

The figures are available now in the Fighting 15s shop.

Prices cut on Scale Creep ACW figures

We hope to be making a special announcement about the availability of Scale Creep Miniatures’ 18mm (large 15mm) ACW range in the UK in the very near future. In the interim, we have dropped the prices of figures in this range so that packs of 8 infantry cost GBP2.50 (previously GBP3.00), and unit packs of 24 infantry including command now cost GBP7.25 (previously GBP9.00). Prices include VAT at 17.5%.

Now while there may be some speculation about what exactly we are going to announce, a price cut is good news in any gamer’s book. Packs are now available at the new prices in the online shop.

Scale Creep’s ACW figures will be available at Salute, mainly in unit packs, from Fighting 15s on stand TC09, where you will be able to compare them first hand with equivalent stature 15mm ACW figures from AB.

Updated single figures lists from Fighting 15s

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.

Fighting 15s: updated lists

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.

Downloadable lists updated

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 at SELWG

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.

Scale Creep 15/18mm ACW in stock

scm_cwin07.jpg
Scale Creep’s initial releases in its new range of 18mm (large 15mm) ACW figures are now in stock and available in the Fighting 15s online shop.

Releases include nine packs of infantry, three packs of infantry command, six infantry regiment packs, and the Chancellorsville vignette. We will be getting in the bare-headed infantry, cavalry and artillery, as they are released.

The arrival of the figures means that we have been able to do a size comparison with AB’s own large 15mm ACW figures (ex-Polly Oliver). As far as the infantry goes, there’s not much in it, and we’re fairly confident that you can use the Scale Creep figures alongside those from AB.

Packs of eight figures are GBP3.00, regiments of 24 figures including command are GBP9.00, and the vignette is GBP3.35.

Scale Creep 15mm American Civil War figures

scale_creep_acw.jpg
Scale Creep's new range of 15mm ACW figures is available in the shop for advance orders. The range is now due for release around mid-July and we hope to have stock shortly afterwards.

The range currently comprises infantry only, with cavalry and artillery due later in the year. The first vignette will be available slightly after the infantry. Sculptor Alan Marsh has ranges such as Eureka's 18mm Napoleonics to his credit, so the quality of these figures should easily live up to the pictures.

Advance orders will be supplied as soon as the figures come into stock. We recommend that you use the 128-bit secure server option for payment because we can then process an order manually and charge for the figures only when they become available.
