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 in particular Salute have proved unmanageable as a sole trader.

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 at Salute by signing on with Colonel Bill's crew for the day. Attending in person allows Fighting 15s to bring AB Figures to a show and to experience the full, rich atmosphere of Salute once again…

Fighting 15s intends to repeat this experiment at Carronade in Falkirk on 13 May we will again be present as staff 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 may 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, medievals and such from them.

As usual, Nic Robson of Eureka Miniatures is 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.

Please note that because of licensing agreements, Fighting 15s may have AB Figures only at shows at which Ian of Fighting 15s is physically present. The figures we sell via Colonel Bill's are all cast in lead-free pewter and packaged in distinctive Fighting 15s blisters in our unique blue colour with the logo in "gold".

See you there.
