Anyone know who might make these in 28mm ? Other than Eureks which already forms the base of the tribe. Also interested in any sleds and moose, polar bears etc.

Good choices.

You know that 'Inuit' is essentially the same thing as 'Eskimo', right?

The second one is increasingly vanishing as being – possibly – pejorative (in the way that indigenous peoples get named by Europeans asking their enemies what they are called). It might have something to do with an Algoquin term for those who eat raw meat. Probably "Those scabby bandy-legged SOBs in the fur anoraks who eat raw meat", because that's how these things occur.

However, Wikipedia says that 'Eskimo' covers both the Inuit and their Alaskan/Siberian cousins, the Yupik.

Who makes Siberian Yupik? In what scale?

Bears Den Miniatures used to do them; they are sadly out of production now.

I cast up our sledge this week and it should be in the store (along with a bunch of other stuff) by the early next week. :-)
