Working my way through some lovely Eureka Miniatures 20mm US Marines for my Pacific project.

I have the Eureka Australians and Japanese and I think the Marines are the best of the bunch so far.

Terrific work. The helmet covers and fatigues are superb.

You did a great job, and while the Marine figures are good, I don't think they are as good as the WW1 US Army ones they have had out for a while- I assume a different sculptor?

I must then check the WWI figures, but I think these Marine sculptures are superb, while the painting is even better. That green is just right, with great shading and highlights, but then the helmets…… Then the webbing.

But above all the facial features, in this scale

Great credit to the maker and also to the artist who painted them.

These figures are 20mm and as far as I'm aware Eureka don't have any WWI figures in 20mm, so perhaps you're thinking of something in 28mm? Eureka ranges are sculpted by a number of different sculptors. I believe these particular figures were sculpted by Mike Broadbent.

They do look nice, haven't got these guys yet.
