Caricature figures?

I saw pictures on the web somewhere of a new range of mid 18th century wargame figures that were catoonish/caricature  with exaggerated noses proportions etc.I can't for the life of me recall who made them I quite fancy painting a few..Can you help?
Thanks
Alan

There was a post on our blog a few months back;
http://warsofthesablehat.blogspot.com.au/2013/03/the-ideal-imagi-nations-miniatures.html

but a search of the Eureka site has failed to turn up any trace. Anyone know what happened?

The Cardinal had it right. It was Eureka, but SYW Follies, not Limpopo. The photos on Eureka's site aren't working for me but they can be seen here:

ooh, I really like those! If I were starting an ImagiNation today I would really be tempted to use those (and hope they expand the range). Heck, I'm tempted anyway.

Evening folks!
This is the email I got-
Hi Alan,


I don't intend holding stocks of them, but will obtain them to special order for customers. As far as I am aware, however, they have yet to be officially released, and have only been available as advance samples at Salute.


You are the only customer ever to ask about them. :-)


Best wishes,


Ian

I take that to mean you are the first in line at Fighting15's, Alan. ;-)

I picked up several packs from Rob at Eureka USA. He had a good supply of them at Historicon this year.

they might also have been part of the Shark'e Rifles of the Slaughterloo collections.

They did some of the Napoleonic era with elves as French, Orcs as British, undead and Zombies as Russians.
