The Sealion supplement for Bolt Action has rekindled my interest in putting together a force for VBCW – ideally a civilian militia bolstered by a section or two of regulars.

So, what are my options, figures-wise? I'm not averse to using First World War models, as I quite like the look of the peaked caps.

So far I've looked at:
Mutton Chop
Woodbine Design
Footsore
Great War Miniatures
Warlord Games (BEF)

Are there any others I've missed? Any particular goodies I should be on the lookout for?

Cheers.

Crusader Miniatures cover early war quite well for most nationalities:

Perry's mounted and dismounted Yeomanry for your cavalry elements.

Also worth checking out is the SCW range on the Empress site as it was the original go to range when the vBCW concept began a few years back.

Check the Jazz Age room as well for some very interesting vehicles as well as Mutton Chop.

Infact have a good look around as there is a huge amount of relevant stuff as we are into the Interwar period : )

Another vote for Crusader; most of SWMBO's early war Canadians/Brits are Crusader and they've got buckets of character.
