Ahhh ... really? Pretty sure people are aware that Eureka exist at this point, especially after what seems like about 90 previous versions of this thread ( I might be exaggerating a bit there). It feels like this has gone beyond gentle persuasion and into berating if I'm honest.

Personally I don't like to mix styles that are so clearly different on a single project. The proportions are completely different to my eye. YMMV of course and more power to you if so.

I also prefer the Empress figures but I'm hugely biased so would say that  :)

No, the initial response was provided solely to alert another poster that there were more modern French out there than the initial Eureka release.   He doesn't like them, fair enough, as I said horses for courses and no skin off my nose. I'm not making a quid out of any of this and people are free to buy and play with what they like.

Not sure if I'm one of the people being referred to. If I am, I can promise that I am in no way fired up about anything, just putting out my opinion based off of what I've seen. I don't hate Eureka figs, I just feel that their older figs aren't as proportionally accurate as their new stuff, which is exactly what was going on in the rest of the market at the time too. This is in no way an attack on the market, more just like a dislike of a style of mini that has been surpassed by sculpting quality and casting abilities. I've seen what moderns CAN look like, now I don't think I can go back.

Just to reiterate, not fired up or upset.  :D
