Hey folks, I understand that Minifigs/GFI ran into trouble some years back, but does anyone know of any good sources for WW2 units in that rough size range these days?

Pendraken is in that neighborhood at 10mm.

Oh thanks, Mark. I've been away from the hobby for a few years. How are things going with you and yours?

Pendraken and Minifigs are good.

Arrowhead also.

All are based in the UK.

Sadly, no US suppliers currently.

There are some 1/144th and 1/160th scale plastics available in the USA, though chasing some of those down can be a challenge, and they're primarily armored vehicles.

I bought some of the CanDo, Pegasus, and Takara minis back in the day. I fill in where needed with metal vehicles and troops.

I can 3d print most WW2 vehicles in 1/160 scale.
The last square carries the perrin 10mm line, Pendraken as has been mentioned by others. Minifigs are N scale which is more like 1/144. This is not WW2 but a more modern Unimog but you can see what is possible with 3d printing. 1/160 scale model.

Perrin are the smallest of the bunch, from what I've read, e.g. more like 1/180th scale, I think (don't know for sure, but seem to recall reading that from others).

Try Lineside Models for true N gauge vehicles:
linesidemodels.com Scroll down to the 2900 series to see their military vehicles but lots of useful stuff in 1/160th. And have some rather interesting kits like an M4A1 with dozer blde.

Minifigs 12mm still available in UK, part of the Caliver Books empire. My favourite 20WW2 figures in this scale.

Minifigs and Arrowhead are 1/144th, and scale nicely with the plastic vehicles out there from various sources.
