15mm Painted Modern Australians, Bushmasters and Bricks.........

.........from Eureka Minis.

The modern Australian army has seen action in recent years in Iraq and Afghanistan. With peace keeping duties in East Timor, Bouganville, Sinai and the Solomon Islands

A brick is 4 personnel.


2 Bricks make a section.


3 sections make a platoon.


Nice models but the metal Bushmasters have a mold line on the back that would make a grown man cry!







The Bushmasters are based on a design from an Irish company.......... 


The rods/poles at the front are IED protection............


A couple of extra personnel for the platoon, includes EOD team, K-9 unit, mine detector, Carl Gustav team etc........

  8. I liked these when I first saw them and still like them a couple of days later. But they do need to do some "Peace-keeping" in Rayanistan! The natives are getting restless.

  15. Splendid job Francis, they look amazing. The special units look extra nice - particularly the K-9 and EOD teams (reminded me of "The Hurt Locker"...) Cheers!

  16. Shame to hear about the moulding, but they look wonderful! I have a 20mm scale USMC force for Fallujah. Your post is really making me want to get them painted!

  19. These are really, really nice Fran! Great variety in figures (the K-9 unit is a real plus). You did a splendid job on those Bushmasters-that cammo is seriously good.

  23. They look great. They are Australian so you could hardly expect them to be perfect.

  28. This unit looks very good, but the vehicle paint-job is as good as many larger scales I've seen.

  29. So I was at Ray's blog earlier and I saw that you left him a nice comment and I thought, was that really you?

    Happy Weekend, Lurker.

  30. Hi Fran! I'm actually going to comment on your banner today - kick ass!

  31. I feel like I'm in math class again, being set up for something like this - "So how many bricks are in a platoon?"

    Great work on the figures, though!

  32. Love 'em Fran, camo work in this scale has to be a beast! The Bushmasters look like a great commuter vehicle. ;-)
