Whats your choice for figures and vehicles range for 20mm WWII N.Africa Campaign Italians ,Germans and British ?

Early War Miniatures for well, early war North Africa. You'll find Africa Korps and an ever expanding Italian range. There are "desert rat" British but they are not on the website yet but available at shows.

Grubby Tanks and Britannia

AB offers some Italian tank crews, a few Africa Korps figures and tank crews as well as several British artillery/at crews and tankers. The Dingo crew set is very nice.

I use pretty much every thing from old Airfix to SHQ. For armor, I like PSC and EarlyWarMiniatures best. For figures, probably Brittania. Hät and Zyvezda make the best guns.

Xan Miniatures has a couple of references:

PSC have a range of DAK and 8th Army ( due out soon) figures in metal and lots of suitable vehicles.

Outstanding! For years I've been wondering what I'm going to use to convert figs to use as Dubats. Not any longer. These look great, I will have to get enough for a Rapid Fire or Command Decision Batt.

SgtGuinness,are you referring to the Early War Miniatures Dubats? Gene

SgtGuinness13 Dec 2017 12:24 p.m. PST

Gene, yes sir, I am! Perfect from the research I've done.

Mark, yeah right buddy?!?!?? I'm so psyched about running that early war WWII western desert 20mm Rapid Fire game for our club in February! It's been way too long since that collection has seen action.

What forces are you thinking of building?

This week AB Figures announced the release of a full range of DAK. Painted samples were posted on The Guild. Availability was estimated to be sometime in April. AB also already had some DAK crewman available.

WarTime Miniatures has DAK, British, Italians and Australians.

Been running some Tunisian games with the Combat Command group. So slightly off topic: but does anyone know of a good source for Lees? Got plenty of Grants.

Good suggestions re NA INF. I've been using mostly plastics (even some old ESCI). Spiced up with a few Britanias but they are pretty bulky next to more human sized plastics.
