Here's some figures from my Eureka Stockade Range which I commissioned several years ago now from renowned UK sculptor Alan Caton. Non Australian collectors may not be familiar with this particular conflict so in brief it occurred in 1854 on the gold fields at a place called Ballarat in the state of Victoria and involved several hundred gold miners rebelling against their treatment by the Government of the day. The miners armed themselves, built a large timber stockade and flew their own flag in defiance of the law. The stockade was attacked and overrun by a garrsion of British Soldiers from the 12th and 40th Regiments who were stationed in Australia at that time. The soldiers were supported by a contingent of mounted and foot police. The battle was brief but bloody and the rebellion was crushed. The figures I produce represent that particular moment when the army and police stormed the barricades of the Eureka Stockade.

Here's a few more pics of my Chinese Gate populated by a few of my Boxer Rebellion figures and a couple of plastic AIP Boxers which paint up quite nice. I've also included a couple of pics of a few finished WETS figures lined up and looking for good homes!
