When first bitten by the 79 bug I approached Eureka Miniatures with the idea of doing a small range. Although Nic probably thought I was mad he agreed. What I wanted was British Infantry in light kit suitable for IS duties. I also wanted a figure in riot gear. Originally I had requested variants wearing the Para steel pot as I thought they would make great shock troops or another faction. But decided against it due to cost. Nic brought in Mike Broadbent as sculptor, I sent off some pics and sat back and waited. Earlier this month while talking to Nic about something else he mentioned that the figs were almost ready and were about to be sent out. I got home last night and there they were. I have attached some poor pics.
