|The basis of my force- plus T34 "scenery"|
When deciding to step down to 20mm (1:72 / 1:76) I was a little concerned about the availability of hard plastic or metal "cold-weather" infantry figures. I had forgotten completely the two packs of Chiltern Miniatures' winter clad troops that I obtained at "Colours 2009". These chaps are large but will "do the job" nicely. I am not sure if they are still available following Chiltern's sale of metal ranges to SHQ. If you are interested, I recommend calling the latter - hopefully they will have improved their service since my last dealings with them 3 years back!

The commander will ride in an Airfix Kübelwagen backed up by two Armourfast SPWs containing the infantry. Then comes the armour - either StuGs or Panzers. In order to keep the project achievable, that's the extent of my planning thus far. I will try to resist the temptation to let it grow!
Ironically, if I go for 42/43 as the setting - my smart little chap in the Panzer III N turret and his shoulders become moot as he is wearing an M43 cap - Murphy's Law strikes again...
