just been in to a model shop in Norwich and they have a 1/48 scale helicopter, 2 landrovers and box of 8 modern infantry all British, a long with afgan buildings. they also have a battle set including most of the items.
anybody heard of these before or have they snicked them out ?

yes some of these have been anounced for over a year.
and some have been out for a while
they do look good, but a little large for 28mm imho!

Has anyone compared the size with eureka miniatures?

I don't have any Eureka minis but they match Empress in height.
However, they have different proportions. Much slimmer than what we are used to. Very long legs.
Still nice figures. And so far the only multipart hardplastic moderns available. My pre-ordered Landrover should arrive tomorrow and the Jackal soon after I hope.
Guess they will fit in perfectly with my Empress figures.

I just ordered the 8 man infantry patrol (A03701) and 2x landrover pack (A06301) from here.


Note some of the sets have paints included. The codes above are the basic kits without paints.
