I submitted 28mm Rhodesians to Eureka's "100 club"....
« on: January 27, 2010, 07:50:53 AM »
As some of you already know proper miniatures for the Rhodesian Bush War is a void that no 28mm manufacturer to date has filled. In fact the only actual Rhodesian miniatures out there right now are the Liberation Miniatures 20mm range. Thus a few weeks back I submitted a request to Eureka Miniature's "100 club" program for a set of Rhodesian Light Infantry figures. (The terrorist forces for that war are not a problem, really. Many lines out there have rag tag guys with AKs that would work nicely)

I got a reply from Eureka soon after submitting the request. Interestingly in this email I was informed that one of their sculptors was "very keen" to work on the project. I'm not sure if this is just something that Eureka tells all those who make "100 club" submissions, but it at least sounds promising. I'm also pretty excited that some person or persons have bumped the "requested number" to 50.

Surely there are enough folks on the various forums  who are interested enough to commit to to buying a few of these things. I'm going to submit my own commitment for about 50 of them (more than I would really need, but what the hell) this weekend. So who is with me in making this happen? We need to push the requested number to at least 150 and get at least 10 distinct orders to get them started.  I recently contacted Eureka and was told the registered buyers are sitting at five.  We are half way there!

Hi, I noticed the entry on the 100 club last week and put in my order then.  I am definitely looking forward to RLI in 28mm!  It'll give my Somalis a new lease on life as guerillas. C'ya, Charles

I'm very tempted. I'll probably never game with them, but I'd like some to do the snazzy camouflage, which has always been one of my favourites.

I'll study my finances.

Hello,

I am rather interested in this, but was wondering how muh of  a brief you can suggest to the Eureka designers?

I would love to see some wearing the short shorts, which were commonly worn by Rhodesian Troopers but that are just not available else where. It would also be handy if they scaled closly enough with Gripping beast Mo Fo and Mongrel Mini ranges to work on the table.

Can you provide any more info about what you asked for?

Thanks and a great idea for a range :)
