TT, I already have some Papuans, some Aussies and a short 25 pdr. The Eureka Papuans are on their way as I type.

Those Eureka Australians look amazing! Anyone know if they are closer to Perry metals, Crusader or the Warlord Chindits in size as it looks like they will need a few things to supplement (2" Mortar, ATR, PIAT, Etc)?

TT, just one who has been formidable so far. Now I have some more Aussies, Papuans and a Buffalo coming from NZ.

Ed, WLG do the Pl HQ support weapons, 2", Pat & Boyes as well as a FT.

Gotcha - is there a difference between the Australian uniform and the Chindit uniform? The WLG Chindits are in slouch hats while their Australian figs are in a mix of helmets and slouch hats. Think I'm looking for straight slouch hat, but want to make sure I'm not screwing things up!

I have a platoon full of Eureka aussies, supports are supplemented by Warlord aussies and look fine side by side, they are very similar size-wise. Beautiful sculpts, have never had so much fun painting as with these guys!

Seconded.

Superb sculpts, and you've given them the artistry that they so richly deserve.

Agree with above, it’s enough to make me contemplate going to 28mm, although I shall resist.
