With our attention being taken towards other pressing real-life problems, we have allowed this project to get away from us. Consequently, we are extending the deadline until the end of May.

The Pathe News newsreel which brought about this idea can be found here.

Home Guard

We can also now announce that our agents in the U.K. – https://www.eurekaminuk.com – and U.S.A. – https://eurekaminusa.com – can accept pre-orders for these figures, which will mean that postage will be much cheaper. Just send Nick and Rob an email and they should be able to help you.

IJA Rifle

The figures will be 28mm and sculpted by Kosta Heristanidis, and will be perfect to fight against our forthcoming 28mm WWII Japanese. Also check out our Facebook page for a preview of two IJA Snipers Kosta has just brought us.

Our proposed list is below. The number in brackets will be the number of variants. Price will be $2.95 AUD per figure (plus GST if purchased in Australia). The Vickers gun and two crew will be $11.00 AUD (plus GST if purchased in Australia).

  1. Home Guard/Ex-diggers with Rifles (6)
  2. Home Guard/Ex-digger Lewis Gun and Loader (2)
  3. Home Guard/Ex-digger Vickers with crew (1)
  4. Home Guard/Ex-diggers with beer bottle bombs (4)
  5. Home Guard/Ex-diggers in hessian sack "ghillie" suits with rifles (4)

Please contact us by email at nicr@eurekamin.com.au with your pre-orders. Our target is to reach $3,000.00 AUD in order to complete the project. If we achieve over $3,000.00 AUD, we might even scrounge up a dummy tank. This offer is extended until 31 May 2020.
