Depends on how big you intend to make the range.

Eureka does modern Aussies, but doesnt make enemies such as Taliban (or even Indonesians for that matter... hint hint :lol: ).

Whilst I like 28mm, I would be interested to see how having both 20 and 28mm scales would affect sales.

I would be more than happy to have a range of other historical Aussies and enemies - Vietnam (plenty of scope there. Eureka did Aussies and VC, but didnt make a full range :( )

Also some Turks for your Light Horse would be good too.

I would also be interested in Boer war Aussies and Boers - if there was enough interest to generate sales.

The Boer War would be an interesting subject (i know we digress). I think in 28mm they would make a good range and if including Brits etc their appeal would be wide spread.

I am not sure if anyone does them already though?

For the Boer war most companies I have come across start the range, but never do it justice.

Wargames Foundry Started one... never finished.

Minifigs has one - fairly good (variety wise) but lacks decent 'Colonial' figures.

I was only looking for 28mm Boer war figures yesterday and was really coming up with a blank, thus why I kinda sorta hijacked the thread :oops:

And yes, if you put the British into a range you sell as well, I think it could do quite well.
