Monster Survey for new 15mm Monsters sent out today!


Back in December all of us at 15mm.co.uk made the decision that we would ask our customer base (and the whole 15mm fantasy wargaming community by expansion) this month about our planned expansion to the most excellent hundred code strong HOT 15mm Fantasy range.  

Its going to be a big year for this range and it begins here with this survey.  We want to know what wargamers want next in the HOT 15mm range in terms of Monsters.  Behemoths, Gods, Giants and Monsters!

Those on our mailing list will be getting the special email to reply to today.  If you are not on our mailing list (shame on you!) then email me directly on sales@15mm.co.uk asking to be put on it and I will send the special email to you manually during this week.  If you don't reply then we won't know and we do want to know what should become a miniature reality.  Look to your inbox!

We are planning a major expansion of our HOT 15mm Fantasy Range this year with more than a dozen new packs and a part of this is the creation of new Monsters, Creatures and Behemoth codes. We will make the top FOUR requests a miniature reality in 2015 but it may be even more if time allows. 


Currently we have had over three hundred requests since last month with gamers wanting to get in early so there are already creatures in a ranked list.  We have included these requests in requested rank in the email.  The top tow currently are shown as sketches in this blog post.

Thanks for Reading.

15mm.co.uk's Winter Dates for Free Shipping, 15% off code and Monster Survey


Welcome fan of 15mm.co.uk and customer of one of the greatest collections of 15mm scale miniatures in the world. Its been a good year for us with a scattering of releases and surprises that saw us continue to grow and to do excellent things that make people happy. Top among these were HOF27 Maginot Defence Turret and V106 Law Officer Air Raft for 15mm science fiction, HOT3T Troll Value Pack and the Tabletop Dungeon Adventurers packs for 15mm Fantasy and the Altuos 15mm Renaissance range for 15mm Historicals. In our range of book titles we sold out of a whole print run of Age of Might and Steel. We also saw a really awesome surge in the SHMP20 Prang Bosses pack designed by Eli Arndt. Not seen these? Click the links and have a look. 


Before we begin in earnest with the awesome I want to tell you all about this festive season for us. As you might know 15mm.co.uk is one part of a bigger family that also includes the mighty www.alternative-armies.com and the rapidly growing www.theionage.com. Its been a busy year for us; increasingly so.  In fact we have all been working six or even six and a half days a week since the late summer and now we have taken on more staff too.  We have experienced a surge in demand for everything that we make from miniatures in 15mm scale to miniatures in 28mm scale as well as resin vehicles and terrain, pro-painted miniatures and armies and also books.  As a result we had been a little behind on shipping out orders (normally we ship our four or five days week).  We are taking a break for a few days for Christmas and the seasonal closure of the freight companies and the post office but deliveries will commence once more as soon as things return to normal.  Let me take this chance to thank you all for your support this year and always.  2015 is going to be an epic year and for 15mm.co.uk it begins now....read on.

We have four pieces of news for you that concern the coming weeks.

15% Off Code for Three Days: 
 From 24th December through 25th December and during 26th December this code will get you 15% off everything on the website. Enter code 'fifteen' as it appears here (without the ' ') during the checkout process on page two of the process (that is after you enter your payment details) on same page page as your postage choice in the DISCOUNT box and your product total will automatically reduce 15% on screen. This applies to all miniatures, all books, all vehicles, all pro-painted, all army packs. The code will work for these three days only. For full details on using codes see the last part of this PAGE on our website.

Festive Range Withdrawn: 
On Tuesday 6th January 2015 the Festive Range will be taken down and shelved until winter 2015. So if you want to purchase the SN01 Evil Snowmen and or the SN02 Killer Xmas Trees you have until then. When the range returns it is our intention to expand it again with another code as we did this season. Go to the Deals and Offers page until 06.01.15. 

Free Worldwide Shipping Week: 
 From Monday 12th January 2015 until Monday 19th January 2015 we will remove the postage for standard UK and International Airmail and replace them with FREE SHIPPING on all orders. Place an order as normal and select free postage during checkout and there you go! This applies to all orders of all values and as many orders as you like worldwide. 

Customer Monster Survey by Email:  
We are planning a major expansion of our HOT 15mm Fantasy Range next year with more than a dozen new packs and a part of this is the creation of new Monsters, Creatures and Behemoth codes. We are going to ask for our customers input in this directly. Almost all the releases in our HOT range are based on wargamers requests but this is a new thing for us to ask directly. We will make the top FOUR creatures a miniature reality in 2015. So if you are not on our Mailchimp list email us on sales@15mm.co.uk asking to be put on it. The survey will be sent out in January 2015 and all you will need to do is read it and then reply with your choices. 

So now that you know what is coming make your notes and your choices and plan your campaigns a new for the next season. Will it be festive before they leave for another year or will it be a saving off normal prices or will it be that most rare of things now...free shipping worldwide? 

Lastly there will be no further posts on our blog until January next year but we will be issuing reminders by email and on social media such as our Facebook page. 

So as we say here in Scotland “Hae yersel a merry Christmas an a guid new Year”!!!  See you all 2015!

Branch Face a free scenario for USEME


Hello USEME fans!

What a hoot we had last week with the free USEME micro scenario Cold Thing with hundreds of you checking out the Malamute Mercenaries and their struggle with the snow made men.  You can see and download this scenario HERE if you missed it.  So this week its the second of the linked scenarios and this time its Killer Xmas Trees in a lobby no one will forget.

Branch Face - A scenario for two players or solo play.  Out of the frying pan and into the...forest.  A diminished group of Malamute Mercenaries find themselves inside the AH Station in a lobby filled with trees...trees that have teeth and will bite back! 

CLICK HERE to download the scenario from our dropbox account for free as a PDF to your computer or device.  Its easy and great fun and will only need a handful of miniatures some dice and about half an hour of your time.  Excellent!


You can find the festive range on our Deals and Offers page until early January 2015.  You can find the whole USEME System on its own page.  We used UM001 USEME 15mm Science Fiction for this scenario.

Merry Christmas!

Galactic Knights to be expanded in 2015!


“The Senate must be protected from the psychic assaults of the Utlragaranians or its crystal walls will crumble and the galaxy will be exposed to the mind tearing death of civilisation. A duty of rescue falls to the Galactic Knights who with their swords drawn and cloaks aflutter in the starry breeze do the bidding of the forces of well meaning. Riding among the flow of space these warriors of truth and virtue will lay waste to the planets of the evil ones. Glittering beams and shining blades against tentacles and teeth amid a landscape of lava and blackened skies.”


Back in the middle of November 2014 I put up a blog post announcing that 15mm.co.uk was very near to the five hundred packs sold that would lead to the expansion of HOF105 Galactic Knights by another two or so pack codes in 2015.  If you missed this posting CLICK HERE to read it before continuing. Got it?  Good.  The response to the possible expansion was really nice with a lot of comments, emails and messages coming back to us with suggestions and other ideas based on the list of possible packs I had outlined from customers and gamers who had already been in touch.  The goal of five hundred packs was passed and so we move onto the expansion.

So what was the winning suggestion?  Well it turned out that the logic in the initial post was pretty much spot on with the most requested codes being a command pack with four poses and a support pack with four poses allowing the creation of a whole force or platoon of Galactic Knights.  Coming in behind those two was a light vehicle such as a bike and also the creation of characters to lead a force.  Running a long way behind were a dozen asks for a pack of 'Ultragaranians' the enemy of the Galactic Knights which is interesting as I have no idea who or what they are!

We have therefore committed to two more HOF pack codes for the Galactic Knights with a total of eight new poses from Command and Support.

A few of the suggestions were a little outlandish to be sure.  These included a comic book series, a video segment and a series of 54mm scale miniatures along with t-shirts and also some 'suggestive drawings' based on the female knight in the existing artwork.  None of these were ever going to happen to be honest but we might do a t-shirt in the future as a limited run.  You never know.

There will be news on this blog once the miniatures are made.  This will be in the first quarter of 2015.  2015...the far future...is now.

Merry Christmas!
