Eureka Miniatures


Some of you may remember Realm - Fantasy Battles by Serious Lemon. It was a fantasy miniatures game that they produced. Then the game went away for a while. Well, it's back and now being made under the Creative Commons. The core of the rules has been pulled out, reworked, and turned into Full Command.

Eureka Miniatures has released two sets of Afghan National Police minis in 28mm scale.



Source

From the release:

Kosta has chosen to model the Afghan National Police rather than the Afghan National Army (ANA) because the latter are armed with American weapons, whereas the ANP are armed with Soviet-style weapons. We have had quite a few requests for troops wearing kevlar helmets and flak jackets AND armed with Soviet weapons, so the ANP fit the bill very neatly, as well as being an important addition to our Afghanistan ranges. The helmeted figures can very easily be used to represent any number of modern Arab armies and so Kosta has painted some in cammo uniforms to represent how versatile they are.

Most of the figures are armed with Kalashnikov assault rifles - in this case the Hungarian version, known as the AMD-65.

Eureka Miniatures has some new Aurochs cattle available over in their webshop.
I've had some friends looking for livestock minis lately, hope this helps 'em out.

From the website:

For centuries a man's wealth was measured in cattle. Owning the biggest herd as well as the strongest bull was the Old World's equivalent to owning a trophy wife and a red Ferrari. Paupers that we are and facing that mid-life crisis, we commissioned Alan Marsh to make the finest cattle known to Europeans, sized for 28mm figures.

The aurochs are the ancestors of all current cattle breeds, but bigger, meaner and smarter. They were highly prized in Roman gladiatorial combat as well as by Rome's tribal enemies. I myself am using them for Bronze Age Crete as well as for SAGA dark age cattle raids and a skirmish based on the Cattle Raid Of Cooley using our Cu Chulain figure.


Eureka Miniatures expands their historicals line with some new WFR Austrian Hussars.

From the release:

Troopers come with and without pelisse and, in keeping with our standard format, in both passive and charging poses.

These are available, in keeping with our previous 20mm releases, in handy squad packs. Speaking of packs, Mike has additionally made a pack of packs (backpacks that is) to help variate the already multitudinous number of poses.

Eureka Miniatures has new French Revolution Horse-drawn Artillery and Limbers available over in their webshop.



From the website:

We have both four and six horse teams available in walking and running poses as well as separate limbers. All limber teams were crewed by civilians, something which did cause problems at the time as the spirit of the drivers did not always match that of the gunners.

All of these items can be also be used with our previously released foot artillery figures.

Eureka Miniatures posted up some preview photos of some Modern Somalis they've been working on and will have available soon.



From the preview:

A sneak preview of some of the new Somali figures we will have with us at CANCON and SALUTE this year.

From Kosta:
"The first group of Somalis are finished, and in fact already dropped off at Eureka Miniatures so that Nic can work his magic and make the mould.... hooray! The Somalis have been on my workbench for a few months, first building the dollies (which are basic figures, just a torso, legs and head) then creating what you see in these photographs. I intend adding a second set which will be basically the same except that they will have scarves covering their faces."


Eureka Miniatures has some new Dark Ages (as in the time, not in the game) minis they're testing out over on their website. The ones that get purchased a lot will see more designs for them.



From the website:

As previously announced, Alan Marsh has made "Sampler" 28mm Dark Age figures for us. Here are some pictures of them as painted by Kosta Heristanidis. More images will follow when we have chance to photograph the rest.

We have mounted and dismounted versions of the same figure as well as a variety of archers. Our intention is to monitor their sales closely, and those that are most popular will be expanded.

So far, though our shop, it looks as though we will have to make more of all of them, as all purchasers so far have bought equal numbers of all of them. Come and see us at HISTORICON and tell us which are your favourites.


Eureka Miniatures has some new German Infantry for their Jurassic Reich line. They'll be available for everyone soon, but those going to Historicon even sooner.



From the update:

Sculpted and painted by Kosta Hersitanidis, these 28mm figures are shown in two styles. 100PLP41 are in their historical colours and based for gaming.

With the illustrated MP40 set, Kosta has made an homage to Britains Deetail figures of the 1970's. For those who would like to follow his example, the bases to achieve this result are also for sale.

100BAS34 is a set of ten 24mm x 14mm , recessed Homage bases.

Eureka Miniatures have released a set of 28mm S.E.A.L Team 6 figures. 28mm SEAL Team 6 From their website:
Our set of six 28mm figures have been depicted with M4 carbines, tricked out with the usual array of infra-red aiming lights, Aimpoint and/or EoTech sights, so often seen on modern military firearms. It is possible that the SEALs involved in Operation Neptune Spear carried H&K 416 carbines, which are externally quite similar to the more familiar M4. One figure is armed with a modified M249 Para-SAW. Helmet recording systems and night-vision goggles are known to have been used during the mission and are thus depicted. (You can order the night-vision goggles separately should wish to kit out other miniatures in your collection)
Eureka Miniatures have released two 28mm 1980’s Soviet and Afghan Heavy Weapons - a 12.7mm Dshk MG and an 82mm mortar. 28mm Afghan Dshk From their website:
Both weapons come supplied with a two person 28mm crew, or can be ordered separately to supplement your existing collections. (They are fully compatible with any other make of modern 28mm miniatures). The Dushka looks especially fine mounted in the back of a 4x4 truck! Customers might also wish to consider our New Release Special Offers which allow you to buy both weapons with either Soviet NBC suited crew and Afghan crew at a discounted price. As an added bonus we could not resist including in the Afghan deal the previously released Type 63 rocket launcher, with its accessories and crew figures.
Eureka Miniatures have posted an update on their 28mm Wars of the Revolution miniature project. French Lt Inf Command From their website:
Just in case you were starting to think we had gone a little quiet concerning our 28mm Wars of the French Revolution project (we have not had a new release since February) we thought we should give you a quick up-date and a few pictures. Work steadily continues to conclude all the remaining basic French Line Infantry codes – covering both regulation and ragged campaign uniforms; helmets, bicornes, and bearskins; grenadiers and fusiliers. All the march-attack figures are finished with just a few advancing and firing & loading grenadier conversations to complete. Meanwhile we have been quietly working away at the French Light Infantry to accompany the Line, and we are pleased to report these are also just about ready, covering the Revolutionary Wars from 1792 up to around c.1800. A selection of the forthcoming French Light Infantry 28mm figures are pictured here.
Check out their site for full details.
Martian Fighting MachineEuraka Miniatures have released a 28mm Martian Fighting Machine and Martian Cephalopod. From their website:
We are pleased to welcome a new range to Eureka Miniatures from our associates at Ozbattler – who are entering the world of miniature gaming with their first range of models. Victorian Science Fiction is a weird and wonderful mix of 19th century Victorian history and strange science, where steam powered flying machines and landships battle with evil invaders from another world. Ozbattler’s first release is their iconic Martian Fighting Machine. This is a huge resin and metal model kit that when completed stands around 440mm / 16 inches high – towering over the battlefield, dealing death and destruction with its heat ray, or smashing man, beast, and steam tank with its whip like tentacles.
Euraka Miniatures have released several new packs of 28mm Italian Wars Gendarme archer figures. 28mm Gendarme Archers From their announcement:
As with our Gendarme figures, collectors can order their Archers with either their helmet visors open or visors closed. All Archer figures are supplied with a separate lance carrying arm or an open handed arm which will accommodate one of several alternative hand weapons (swords, maces, battleaxes and horseman’s picks - supplied randomly with each figure). Both lance arms and hand weapon arms can be attached to the figure torso at a variety of angles to make all your Archers different in appearance. Riders and horses are interchangeable allowing for further variety. We are considering producing other miniatures for this colourful period of European warfare (c.1450-1530) if there is enough customer interest and support for them.
Eurkea Miniatures are having a fire sale on their stock of GZG 28mm resin vehicles. From their announcement:
The new owners of the 28mm GZG resin range, Daemonscape, have decided that having production in two places is redundant, and consequently we will no longer be manufacturing under licence. We do have quite a lot of stock on hand and must get rid of it before April 30th 2011. We are therefore pleased to announce a 30% discount on all our current stocks of GZG 28mm resin vehicles. Quantities are limited, and as we sell out of them, they will be removed from our on line store.
Eureka Miniatures have released a series of figures representing the various sides involved in the Rhodesian conflict. 28mm ZANLA figures From their announcement:
Although under international arms embargo, Rhodesia nonetheless received support from South Africa, Portugal, and Israel. The basic rifle was the SLR (actually the South African version, known as the R1) with FN MAG light machine-guns as the support weapon. With these sturdy arms, and MG151 20mm cannon armed Alouette helicopters (known as K-cars) in the air above, the RLI became a ruthlessly effective fighting force. The size of the RLI 'stick' of four men was determined by how many men could deploy from an Alouette helicopter. For their part, the guerrilla groups received backing from China, North Korea and the Soviet Union, and this is reflected in their weaponry. A wide range of weapons were supplied to the guerrillas; AK-47’s, RPD light machine-guns and RPG-2’s being indicative of a well supplied unit. Photos of the guerrillas show a surprising amount of uniformity, with various types of tan shirt and trousers very commonly worn, often in combination with Rhodesian or Portuguese issue camouflage items.
