I always enjoy visiting Eureka Miniatures, there is always something new to have a look at, often just before it appears on the web. Nic has a lovely way of getting you to walk away with more than you meant to when you walked in. The team create some lovely, quirky and characterful miniatures. A nice example is the Pulpitations range by the crazy talent of Kosta Heristandis. I picked up a unit of the Rocketeers back in August last year:
Some of the rocketeers prior to clean-up; there isn’t a lot to do, some minimal flash and mould lines
Other projects were in the queue, so they joined the rest of my US army in the cupboard:
Eventually these guys will get to invade Italy
So, with a vague idea that I won’t buy anything new until I paint the stuff I have – hah, like we all know how well that works! – I did make a start on the Rocketeers:
In part I used it as an opportunity to test some green colours for the US. (Or is that green color, when you do the USA?) I bought a selection of women with caps and helmets. All of the figures come with either.
They are nearly done, the bases mostly, but I think the US need to come forward in the queue so I can have an excuse to get these girls on the table. K-47 has jump troops, so I think they will work nicely to add a touch of weird science to what I intend to be mostly a Bolt Action force:
Just noticed googles and some other bits and pieces still to do. So, nearly there, but not quite
Catch you around the battle fields of 1947 one day.
