From FranL - 15mm Modern Australian Platoon with Bushmasters (104 Points)

........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.



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......... 




Nice work Fran - will these be taking on the insurgents of the Republican Australian Youth Maoist-Orthodox Nature Defenders?That looks to be 40 foot figures and the four vehicles, which will score you 104 points.

  3. Great work. And I do find the terrorist group Tamsin mentioned to be rather ominous...

    1. I think "Nature Defenders" was an auto-correct of "Nandos Devourers"

  4. I hope these see active service in Franonia soon repelling the dastardly forces of Rayanistan! They will do well keeping the pure an noble people of Fanonia safe well and prosperous.

    Nice job mate. I see what you are painting and just wish you lived closer!

    1. I believe these ones emit a radio signal to disrupt IEDs but the real one is pushed out front of the vehicles!

  7. Very nice job on these at such a small scale. One of my favourite things about the challenge is seeing ranges I had no idea even existed.
