    Stoffy did super sculpt for Chris Macca!
    Thanks for sharing & liking your style in this one for sure.
    You’ve given him a look of a real veteran, seen it all & not to be messed with.

    Hi all and many thanks to Macca for his lovely post and the positive reviews!

    I’m the owner of Eclectic Miniatures which is a new and very modest endeavour aimed at creating some unusual or neglected subjects.

    I’ve been in this hobby most of my life and thought why not have some fun and work with very talented people to create something different that others might also enjoy painting as much as I do?

    Currently there are 2 releases, the ALH trooper bust pictured here and a WW2 US Marine 90mm figure. Both are sculpted by the very talented Chris Sorby of Ybrossculpts.

    A third release is planned, also an ALH WWI subject but this time a dismounted officer and is a 90mm figure.

    I must confess a special interest in the Light Horse. My Grandfather served in the NSW regiment during the Great War in Palestine before transferring to the artillery and serving as an officer in France and Belgium.

    I’m still getting packaging, etc organised but if your interested please feel free to contact me on my email:


    Thanks again to everyone for their interest and also a special thanks to Mike “The Kiwi” Butler for his assistance and advice on the uniform of the ALH bust!

    Hi Nap

    I actually live in France!

    Postage to the UK is not as cheap as it once was but thankfully not as extortionate as it is to the US!

    I’ll post some pictures of the Marine shortly. It’s also a subject very close to my heart as my Father was in the Second Marine Division and fought in Saipan and Okinawa. He remained a very proud Marine all his life. I learnt very early in life there is a very big difference between the army and the Marine Corps!

    Best regards and thanks for your post.

    Morning/Evening fellow modellers!
    I’ve finally sorted myself out and just wanted to let those of you who were interested and following this thread that this ALH bust of Trooper Wright is now available from me for £32 or €35 (plus postage).
    My email is eclecticminiatures@gmail.com or you can contact me via PM. I’m very happy to take PayPal!
    I’ll make an formal announcement on the PF web page shortly. FYI I’ve only cast limited numbers of this one (a few are already gone) so if your interested please let me know!
    I’ll be following this up with a 90mm USMC from WW2.
    Kindest regards to you all and wishing everyone a happy and safe 2023,
