Traders specials at Salute 2012 (9)

Eureka Miniatures – TE 03

28mm 1812 Saxon Heavy Cavalry and 15/18mm AB Figures 1792 Austrians – submit your pre-orders soon! As previously announced Eureka Miniatures will be traveling from Australia to attend and trade at Salute 2012.

Salute will mark the official launch of several new Eureka and AB Figures ranges, plus other show specials which can be pre-ordered for collection at the show (thus guaranteeing you get what you want, while avoiding all postage charges!)

Among the ranges on offer will be Eureka’s new 28mm Napoleonic Saxon Heavy Cavalry, representing both the Garde du Corps and Kürrassier-Regiment von Zastrow regiments at the moment of their finest hour – the storming of the Great Redoubt at the Battle of Borodino in 1812. Multiple variant poses are available in either dramatic charging, or more passive ‘at rest’ attitudes depending on the collectors whim.

The smaller scale Austrians (15/18mm) are a new addition to Tony Barton’s superb AB Figures Napoleonic range, suitable for the Wars of the French Revolution from 1792 to 1798 (and beyond to the Marengo campaign of 1800 thanks to the slow pace of Austrian uniform replenishment). They can also be fielded for campaigns against the Ottoman Turks before 1792. The range incorporates Austrian and Hungarian infantry, Grenzers (including Grenzer sharpshooters and Seressaners), Dragoons, Hussars, Artillery and a staff set.
