Eureka Soon To Add US Marine Specialists To Moderns Range

March 10, 2016 by brennon

Eureka Miniatures have shown off some previews of what’s coming for their US Marines range in 28mm. Here we have some Specialists who would be great for specific scenarios and vignette/diorama work…

US Marine Sniper

First up we have this Sniper Team who are setting up to take a shot at a target. I think this chap might want to steady that rifle on a wall or he might be whiffing his shot. I think this would be neat as a single team trying to take out a target deep in enemy territory.

You could have them trying to get the shot as the other player moves around their insurgents looking to get from point A to point B. He would be ‘unaware’ to begin with before the shooting starts or someone spots them in their hiding place.

Next up we have a Gunner Team who look like they are set up and ready to lay down some supporting fire.

I reckon that if you were looking for a good scenario here it would be a hold out in a town square somewhere. You could have the Marines trying to protect a building or other strategic location while the enemies pour in from all sides.

Last but not least, a Bomb Disposal Team. I think the scenario here would be that this team is out there clearing the roads while you have a few squads protecting them from ambush. Maybe they suddenly come under attack or an IED goes off causing panic and chaos?

I think that centring the attention around specific elements of your force can be a really good way to develop good scenarios. What would you plan out for these soldiers?

Let me know below…
