G'day all

I have been looking into purchasing a modern Australian force from GHQ for a Soviet vs Aussies match-up. However I am having difficulty selecting comparable Australian Infantry, Does anyone know if there is any 6mm Aussies with Styers? or a suitable alternative that may work?

I am currently making some that will be available through Slave 2 Games. Drop Drew a line and he will let you know when they are released.

Hi Cavosi,

I am going to try and get a Bushmaster done too

There will be ten poses of Infantry, I am working on poses 7 & 8 now.

Sounds awesome mate, which era are you basing them, f-88? or EF88? :D I am sure at 6mm they are not much different!

I was thinking of making an M1A1AIM armoured regiment, ASLAV for Recce, M113AS4 with some light infantry platoons, and using bushmasters as command and support vehicles (perhaps some UNIMOGs too).

I was thinking about bushmasters role in a conventional conflict and I think armour would limit its use as a battle-bus, and its height limiting as recce, seems to be more rear echelon?

Have you thought about doing a Hawkei mini at all?

Thanks again

Ordered some Hawkei!

Sorry for my ignorance but will the figures be available with boonie hats and helmets (two sets) or just one or the other? Google searching has led me to pictures with both in various theaters.

Hi Stephen,

At this stage they are all in helmets.

Bushmaster is made. ASLAVs started!

I hope that you like the Hawkei's Cavosi
