The 28mm Granbretan Wolf Order figures from Eureka Miniatures for its Hawkmoon line are now listed in the Fighting 15s shop. These are a very late addition to the shop because the box containing them has been in the workshop for months. This is entirely my fault because the box’s arrival coincided with the death of my mother, and so it has just sat on a shelf as a painful reminder of events since January. It has been the one thing with which until now I have been unable to cope.
The result is a somewhat half-arsed addition to the shop, as now I have unpacked and sorted the box, I discover that I have clearly forgotten to order the Karmarg flame lance troops, who came out at the same time, and the Karmarg cavalry. These codes are now listed in the shop, but it is not possible to order them as yet: the add to cart button has been removed, and they are described as not in stock. I will remedy this as soon as I can. For now, if you want to order these figures, please do so by email.

Back in about 2010, Mystic Spirals sculpted some 28mm science fiction catgirls with a space pirate theme for Fighting 15s. Unfortunately, that project was put on a shelf, even though samples had been painted and the mould made. Spring cleaning for the online shop this month led to the discovery of the pictures for the range on an old hard disc and the unearthing of the mould. Despite the age of the sculpts, the range has now been uploaded to the shop.
Mystic Spirals designed the kits as Fighting 15s requested so that they are elegant 28mm figures, not chunky, and accordingly they are fiddlier than usual to assemble and experience of putting together white metal kits is therefore an advantage. Swords have been designed to be exaggerated, but are intended to be painted as “force blades”. The figures were intended for a personal HOTT project.
The Furred Dimension range includes:
Figures are priced at £3.00 each including VAT.
Count Brass, Hawkmoon, Oladahn
Eureka Miniatures’ initial releases in its 28mm Hawkmoon range, authorised by Michael Moorcock, have arrived in stock at Fighting 15s.
The initial releases include infantry for the Kamarg, plus personalities and foot command. Figures are priced at £2.85 inc VAT each, which at the time of writing makes the ex-tax price (£2.38) roughly equivalent to the current ex-tax price in Australian dollars (AUD 4.00, or £2.44 based on the average exchange rate).
Fighting 15s holds limited stocks of these figures. Stocks of these figures will be built up in time, but the poor exchange rate with the Australian dollar means that it is not currently a favourable time to build stocks and Fighting 15s has therefore reverted to its recession-period strategy of buying in 28mm figures for customers as required. Accordingly, an order for the range may take eight or more weeks to fulfil, although as always Fighting 15s will try to obtain figures as soon as possible.
Eureka Miniatures’ 28mm figures for the Aden Emergency 1967 have arrived in stock at Fighting 15s. Please note that our initial stocks are limited and Fighting 15s is unlikely to be able to get new stock before Christmas in the event that any codes sell out.
The figures are available at http://www.fighting15sshop.co.uk/aden-1967-1109-c.asp and listed for a short time in our New Arrivals section.
Fighting 15s has received its initial stocks of Eureka Miniatures’ 28mm Pre-contact Maoris. Codes and descriptions are as follows:

100MAU04 Maori with Pouwhenua
100MAU05 Maori with Patu club
100MAU06 Maori with Taiaha
100MAU07 Maori with Tewhatewha
Figures are currently priced at £2.10 inc VAT each.
Initial stocks of these figures are very limited. Figures may therefore take eight or more weeks to obtain from Eureka.
