If I wanted 100 or more pre-painted WWII tanks that were GAME GENERIC(not affiliated with any game whatsoever), where would I turn?

What scale?

Game Models does pre-assembled, painted in one color vehicles, either green, grey or desert yellow, just wash and add decals. They are 15mm.

Not sure I have 100, but I do have a large surplus of superb, brand new, prepainted, 1/144th scale miniatures made by Takara, that are excellent for gaming.

You can supplement those with more of them in the same scale, from the same manufacturer, and/or with other, not-prepainted, metal minis, like I've done.

They're great, since they have all the excellent detailing of larger models, authentic camo jobs, but are small enough that they don't create a tread-to-tread, or road-wheel to road-wheel parking lot on the tabletop. They're also bigger than microarmor, so are more impressive than those little gems too.

Mine are from the Battle of the Bulge, and Kursk collections, plus some others too.

I've also got some 1/144th scale, preprinted, cardstock German houses, and some larger town/village buildings to go with them too. Haven't had a chance to take photos of the latter, but will do that tomorrow, of the plain, and half-timbered, two-story buildings. They'll go great with WWII, or Cold War era miniatures, for gaming in Germany.

Why do you care of they are "Game Generic?" A Sherman is a Sherman is a Sherman.

I think your best bet will be die-cast. Generally very nice models – usually much more than just spray painted green or gray. Camo, with some detailing.

Needing 100 tanks but no request for anything else – are you designing a pure tank on tank game?

Google: "axis and allies miniatures singles"
Roughly 1/144 scale (I think), pre painted plastic. Finding 100 at one place will be tough, though.

Board game replacement pieces:
Not pretty, green plastic, not really painted, but you should be able to get bunches.

Most important: scale?
