Salute 2017

I will be on the Colonel Bill's stand (TD21) at Salute 2017 on 22 April to help out and to promote the Fighting 15s products stocked by Colonel Bill's.

Fighting 15s will also have Napoleonic unit packs of 15mm AB Figures at the show on the stand. Packs on the stand are based on our best-sellers, and by its nature the selection will therefore be limited.*

Please contact Stuart at Colonel Bill's to order Bartek's playing cards, Eureka's 18mm SYW and Fighting 15s' 15mm medievals in advance. These ranges will be available on the day at Colonel Bill's.

Stuart has kindly allowed me to take advance orders for other ranges (AB Figures, Eureka Miniatures and other Fighting 15s ranges): please place an order with Fighting 15s by email. There is no special Salute delivery option in the online shop: payment for advance orders with Fighting 15s must be in advance to avoid any risk of cashbox confusion on the day, and I will send PayPal invoices for email orders.

Customers, however, can place an order as usual in the online shop by choosing telephone payment during checkout, and then phoning or emailing to say the order is for collection at Salute. Delivery will then be deducted when payment is taken.

Carronade 2017

Fighting 15s will be on the Colonel Bill's stand at Carronade (Falkirk, 13 May). The same procedures for Salute (above) apply for advance orders – that is, by email and advance payment only. The cut-off date for advance orders is Monday 8 May.

Fighting 15s will have 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. *

Crisis 2017

Fighting 15s will be on the Colonel Bill's stand at Crisis (Antwerp, 4 November). The same procedures for Salute and Carronade (above) apply for advance orders – that is, by email and advance payment only. This is a rare chance to find Fighting 15s at a show on continental Europe.

Fighting 15s will have 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. *

Other shows

Colonel Bill's is Fighting 15s' appointed representative at UK shows, and carries the pin-up playing cards from Bartek/Intimo, unit packs for Fighting 15s' own 15mm medievals range for Tannenberg 1410, and unit packs for Eureka's 18mm Seven Years War range, which are cast by Fighting 15s in the UK. Figures available through Colonel Bill's at shows are packaged in distinctive Fighting 15s blisters in our unique blue colour with the logo in "gold".

The terms of our agreement with AB and Eureka mean that AB Figures cannot be on the Colonel Bill's stand unless Fighting 15s is actually present at a show in person. Fighting 15s is therefore looking at attending more shows in person on the Colonel Bill's stand to ensure the presence of AB Figures on the UK wargames shows circuit.

Fighting 15s is therefore considering using the same approach that we are using for Salute and Carronade for Battlegroup South (Bovington, 1 and 2 July), Attack (Devizes, 15 and 16 July), Claymore (Edinburgh, 5 August), Colours (Newbury, 16 September), Derby Worlds (Leicester, 7 and 8 October), SELWG (London, 22 October), and Warfare (Reading, 18 and 19 November). In effect instead of partnering with Black Hat Miniatures for shows, as we did for 10 years, Fighting 15s will be shacking up with Colonel Bill's.

* Our relationship with Colonel Bill's involves changing the way that Fighting 15s sells AB Figures at shows. Figures will be available only as pre-packed units in blisters for sale on Colonel Bill's hanging display system as part of a walk-in stand: it will no longer be possible to buy small packs or individual figures at shows except by advance order. Initially, until we build up show stock, only infantry unit packs are available. All AB Figures on the stand will be ones that Fighting 15s casts under licence, and they will therefore be cast in lead-free pewter.
