Eureka always does pre-releases at shows. Usually a long, long, long time before you can get them on the website.

To compliment our 28mm modern U.S. Marine range, Kosta Heristanidis has sculpted these fine new sets, comprising Marine specialists and heavy weapons.

While elite units like the Seals and Force Recon often receive the glory, it is the humble Marine who is called upon to take and hold the objective. After 16 years of near-continuous action, they have become very proficient at molding themselves to their task. Consequently, the weapons and equipment of these frontline troops are, by necessity, constantly changing and evolving.

US Marine EOD

Kosta has attempted to capture a look that best represents the widest spread of time over this long-running conflict.

28mm U.S. Marines

100MOD171 – U.S. Marine with M32 Grenade Launcher (2)
100MOD172 – U.S. Marine.50cal HMG Team – 2 figures (1)
100MOD173 – U.S. Marine EOD Team – (EOD Robot and Operator, K9 and Handler with mine detector, Technician wearing Bomb Suit)
100MOD174 – U.S. Marine Scout Sniper team with Barrett rifle – 2 figs (1)
100MOD175 – U.S. Marine Corpsman with casualty – 2 figs (1)

And speaking of time, to further enhance this release, we present a collection of civilian sets that, while fitting perfectly into the same modern theater as the Marines, can also, in most cases, be used for a large variety of other time periods. These sets – sculpted by Alan Marsh (with some very useful additions from Kosta) – are designed to give your modern scenarios just the right touch of local color.


28mm Civilians

100CIV45 – Goat herders – six goats, two shepherds (1)
100CIV46 – Goat Cart with load and driver (1)
100CIV47 – Flatbed mule Cart with Oil Drums and driver (1)
