A Good Word For Eureka Miniatures

I just got my order (in under two weeks from Australia no
less!) of 15mm WWI Italians from Eureka Miniatures. These
are great little minis, the machine-gun stands are minor
works of art! Very nicely done and as always a breeze to deal

This is what the past year of hits looks like from a geographical origin perspective (click for a bigger version)
This will now be archived and a new one started - many thanks to the kind souls who contributed to all those red dots!

Bloodaxe Minis!

I just got my order of 15mm WWI Russians and inter war Soviets,
I must say their sculpting is excellent! The figures compare in
size with those from Peter Pig but have I think a nicer animation.
The price on Bloodaxe miniatures is also far better for we
American customers since there is no exchange rate or high
shipping costs to deal with.

I bought one of their 1914 Russian Infantry Regiment WWI
UNIT PACKS for $14.95, this one was a particular good value
it is based around the Spearhead system and contained 50 infantry
2 officers and 4 machine gun teams. I'll be getting another of these
soon along with their German WWI pack.

I also got some of their interwar period Soviet infantry in Budenka
Cap, very nice figs!

This is a very new company that seems to have allot going
for it and great future lines soon going to be released like
FIRST ITALO-ETHIOPIAN WAR. I do highly recommend
this one guys, they are fast and communicate with their customers
every step of the way. I'm really looking forward to more from this

HMCS Redoubt

Bill Witthans, creator of the fine Prussian steam-powered landship posted to WWS previously, has kindly sent me pics of another of his wonderful conveyances- the HMCS REDOUBT!

Bill created this from the Scheltrum Miniatures "Jules Verne Class French Aerial Torpedo Destroyer" kit you can find here: (thanks for the information Ironmammoth!)
Great stuff Bill- many thanks indeed for sharing your great creation!
