I have waited for them for quite some time ! and I am not disapointed. 5 days after ordering on eureka miniatures USA I received my parcel filled with 72 small russian soldiers.

there are 3 different kinds, sphera, regular helmet and sphera+maska.

Very little flash, most guns are a bit bent but not a single one broke when I had to straigthen them, even the long PKM and SVD. I lost one flash hider on a AK though.

Eureka / flytrap / eureka / khurasan / eureka / CP models

they are a bit small compared to other companies … sad cause I love the maska ones !

Are those 15 ro 20mm?
Nice looking figs though.

15's. Nice looking range, a wee bit small but not enough to prevent me picking some up.

When you say a bit small, how much? Would they fit well with Pendraken or GFI? or are they still too big for that?

Another way of looking at it are that Flytrap, Khurasan and CP models are too big to fit comfortably with Peter Pig, Renegade, Old Glory and Eureka.

I personnally do not mind a bit of a difference and happily use all the manufacturers' offerings, however I have found that Flytrap figures work better if you file down their rather thick bases, while Khurasan figures vary considerably between different ranges and some match up better than others.

The figs themselves are fantastic. The detail is really good, weapons are of realistic proportions…but they are small. I have about 60 based on pennies and painted in drab greens and browns to represent low tech near future rebel/militia troops if anyone is interested in them.

Eureka are "true" 15mm, the other are more 18mm I would say

figures are really nice and won't look bad on a board with the other brands. I am painting one quickly to have a comparison shot.

Nicely done! Good looking troops and bases! I got my first 4 man fireteam painted up this weekend.
