Fighting 15s, AB and Eureka at Salute and Carronade

cbills_crop

Fighting 15s will be at Salute 2017 on 22 April on Colonel Bill’s stand (TD21) along with a selection of 15mm AB Napoleonics. AB Figures available on the day will include infantry unit packs for the major nations.

This is an experiment for Fighting 15s. Salute used to be possible only with the help of Mike of Black Hat Miniatures, but now he has stopped attending events,  shows  – particularly Salute – have proved unmanageable.  For the past year Colonel Bill’s has been taking a number of our products on the UK shows circuit – Eureka Miniatures’ 18mm Seven Years War figures, our own 15mm medievals for Tannenberg 1410, and playing cards by Bartek – and this year we have decided to help out by signing on with Colonel Bill’s crew for the day. Attending in person allows Fighting 15s to bring AB Figures to a show.

Fighting 15s intends to repeat this at Carronade in Falkirk on 13 May – we will again be present on the Colonel Bill’s stand – after which we will take a view on the experiment’s success and consider repeating it for the late summer and autumn show schedule and expanding the available range of packs. After a year of no events it is taking time to build up to having stock suitably packaged for shows. Bear with us.

Advance orders for collection at Salute or Carronade can be made via Fighting 15s by phone or email. Time is running out for advance orders for Salute – Wednesday 19 April is about as late as is possible. Fighting 15s can take advance orders for all the ranges it supplies – but please support Colonel Bill’s by buying the SYW basics from them.

As usual, Nic Robson of Eureka Miniatures is present at Salute on his own, heavily manned stand (TH20), with the new releases from both Eureka Miniatures and AB Figures. Don’t forget to say hello to him as well.

Notes

Because of licensing agreements, Fighting 15s may have AB Figures only at shows at which it is physically present. Colonel Bill’s is not able to have AB Figures at shows at which Ian of Fighting 15s is not present – we are dealing with this by aiming to attend a few more shows in person this year. All figures from Fighting 15s are packaged in blisters in the distinctive colours of Fighting 15s (gold badge on a blue background) and clearly labelled as to the manufacturer and contents. All figures supplied by Fighting 15s on the Colonel Bill’s stand are cast in lead-free pewter.

Fighting 15s at Salute 2017

Contrary to all expectations on my part, Fighting 15s will be at Salute 2017 on 22 April. I will be helping out Colonel Bill’s on stand TD21, and you’re welcome to pop along for a chat and to take a look at the ranges that Colonel Bill’s takes to UK shows on my behalf.

Please contact Stuart at Colonel Bill’s to order Bartek’s playing cards, Eureka’s 18mm SYW and Fighting 15s’ 15mm medievals in advance.

Stuart has kindly allowed me to take advance orders for Fighting 15s’ other ranges: please place an order with Fighting 15s by email – unlike before, there is no option in the online shop: payment for all show orders with Fighting 15s must be in advance by card or PayPal as I cannot take card or cash payments on the day. This is to avoid any issue with cash or other payments going through the wrong till.
