Eureka Miniatures

Australia


Turkish Soldier, as delivered
As Delivered

























Barrett Scale: 26L.
Mixes best with: Still working on that, although I suspect that they will match most of the others pretty well.
Long Review: The four figures I received consist of 100HBC10- 1 of 9 variants of Turkish infantry, 100HBC02- 1 of 4 Gurkhas, 100HBC04- 1 of 8 British infantry, and a pre-release German standard-bearer in full dress uniform.
For some reason, the Gurkhas seem to be on slotted bases, while all the others are on cast-on bases.The poses are all very natural,and will provide a very life-like army. The German standard-bearer is very stiff (as he should be), standing to attention at a pre-war parade.
The attention to detail is very obvious, and the style of sculpting will allow the figures to fit in with most of the others- it is a very clean, neat style which should take to painting easily.
Of the four figures, the British infantryman must be my favourite- looking at the breech of his rifle as he's working the bolt.
Commentary: Very nice, crisp figures, and once I get to this arena, I will definitely be getting Eureka Miniatures' figures.
Historical Accuracy: Four Good.
Pose Quality: Five Average
Sculpting: Five Average.
Casting: Four Average.
Sources: I sent off a request for samples. Nic kindly offered to let me choose which figures I wanted, but I declined, preferring to let him choose the actual figures. I felt it would be a more un-biased way for me to proceed, as I could not be accused of expanding my own collection for free ;-).
Sculptors: Palestine range: Mike Broadbent. German standard-bearer: Alan Marsh.
