Nic Robson at Eureka Miniatures is inviting expressions of interest (and pre-orders) in a proposed 15mm Sumerian range, modeled after Eureka's excellent 25mm range, which you can peruse on-line at: link

Tentative plans call for the 15mm Sumerian range to consist of 9 codes a Command pack with Gilgamesh, officers and Royal Guards, plus codes for spearmen, axemen, archers, slingers and javelinmen with mixed poses, and codes for Sumerian battlecarts and straddlecarts….plus an option for Akkadian archers. The final list, including any possible additions to the above, will depend on the level of interest.

Nic advises advances orders cumulatively totaling approximately 5000 miniatures (estimated at AUD$4000) would be sufficient to launch the project.

Eureka is no longer using its 100/300 Club catalog mechanism to log advance orders, but Nic asks that anyone who is interested contact him directly at nicr (at) eurekamin.com.au

I have always liked the look of those Eureka-brand Sumerians and wished they were available in 15mm. Lets hope this catches on!

Nic Robson reports that we're about 25% of the way to the green light threshold for the proposed 15mm Eureka Sumerian range…so if anyone is thinking about getting their Gilgamesh on and is willing to help support creation of a good range of 15mm Sumerian figures, now's the time to let Nic know at nicr (at) eurekamin.com.au

Just sent my pre-order to Nic. He's a bit over halfway there so is happy to keep the project open for a while. So if you're interested but not committed yet please let him know. Who doesn't want DBA army I/1? Nic also said that if he gets more support he may look at expanding the sculpts to include options for Guti/Lullubi and Akkadians. If the 28mm are the inspiration I suspect the models will be spectacular! So if you have a Bronze Age itch that needs to be scratched then please join in.

Nic Robson advises that he's got enough interest to cover 60% of the project and is going to leave the window open until the end of the year. So if you are interested in the proposed range of 15mm Eureka Early (Gilgamesh-period) Sumerians…and haven't already responded…contact Nic to confirm your interest before its too late.

Latest update from Nic has this project 75% funded. So if you've been waiting to see if there was significant interest before committing, now is the time. Everybody is entitled to a small, self-indulgent present at this time of year! If a toy soldier voucher happened to end up in your stocking from a Mr S Claus…
