Fighting 15s at Salute 2018

Fighting 15s will be on the Colonel Bill’s stand (TD19) at Salute, Excel London, on 14 April 2018.

Please note that the closing date for advance orders for the show is 1 April. I am unavailable in the week or so running up to Salute and have to cut-off advance orders early this year.

Advance orders may be made by phone, email (please don’t send attachments) or by sending a message via the Fighting 15s Facebook page. Fighting 15s can no longer offer a collect at Salute option in the shopping cart because of a change in how the shop’s delivery system works. Payment must be in advance by card or PayPal: at Salute, Ian will be in Colonel Bill’s livery and operating Colonel Bill’s till. Fighting 15s cannot, therefore, take cash payments on the day.

Colonel Bill’s is Fighting 15s’ official stockist of Eureka 18mm SYW figures and Fighting 15s’ medievals. In addition to our lines that Colonel Bill’s usually carries, there will be a selection of Napoleonic unit packs of 15mm AB Figures at the show. Packs on the stand are based on our best-sellers, and by its nature the selection will therefore be limited. Orders for 20mm WWII AB Figures must be made in advance.

Advance orders for collection at Salute may also be made for our clearance lines of Oddzial Osmy, Shadowforge and Laughing Monk figures. These ranges, however, will be removed from the Fighting 15s shop on 1 April.

Eureka Miniatures has its own, separate stand at Salute. Please do not confuse the two when placing advance orders.

All items are available to buy now in the Fighting 15s online shop at £2.95 per pack inc VAT. Contents as described on the website. For a while all codes are also listed in the New Arrivals section.

Please note that because of market conditions in the UK, Fighting 15s currently orders in new releases and replacement stock of Oddzial Osmy figures every two to three months. This allows Fighting 15s to keep prices as they are. A change in how Oddzial Osmy approaches production of its figures means that Fighting 15s can no longer guarantee to get particular codes on a shipment, and therefore Fighting 15s will not back-order codes that either go or are out of stock in order to avoid substantial delays in obtaining figures for customers.

Oddzial Osmy had scheduled WUS-671 B-25J Mitchell for release, but production difficulties mean that Fighting 15s has been unable to obtain this code.

Please note that Fighting 15s no longer back-orders out-of-stock items for items in Oddzial Osmy’s ranges. This is because we have experienced long delays – over three months – for some codes, and because we have switched to shipping in greater bulk (and therefore less frequently) to keep prices stable.

Fighting 15s also has re-stocks of a number of codes and we will be updating the site shortly to account for them. We also now have the new releases from Oddzial Osmy for March and April, apart from the Apache Longbow, which somehow got left off the order. 🙁

Please note that we have changed how we order from Oddzial Osmy, and are now only obtaining the new releases every two to three months. This allows us to take advantage of price breaks to keep the prices down. We are still, however, unable to guarantee that Oddzial Osmy will supply re-stock codes for customers’ orders, and therefore we regret that our policy of not back-ordering items from that manufacturer continues.

All new codes are listed for convenience in New Arrivals for a few weeks: https://www.fighting15sshop.co.uk/new-arrivals-808-c.asp

Thanks to Salute, Fighting 15s is running a bit behind on announcing the new releases from Oddzial Osmy of Poland. Marcin very kindly sent the pictures on Friday, just as I was out of contact with the world, on my way for what turned out to be a lonely evening in a hotel in London Docklands…
