Greetings!

I have some US M8 and M20 armored utility cars from the Old Glory Command Decision 15mm range; none have crews at the moment. Can anybody suggest some figures to crew these vehicles? Perhaps a commander and/or gunner?

I am trying to build a few forces for me and my 6-12 year old sons to begin battling it out on the dinner table. We are all new to the miniatures hobby, so our figures/forces are being compiled without odds, ends, bits and leftovers from prior builds. In addition to being new to the hobby, we all have a Stephen Ambrose/Saving Private Ryan/The Longest Day/A Bridge Too Far/various-and-sundry-documentaries understanding of WW2, so it is proving a challenge to find items to flesh out our forces unless they come in packaged/bundled deals.

I appreciate any insight this wonderful community can offer!

To fill out your motorized units I would checkout gamodls.com as they are cheap with a wide range for starting out youngsters.

You can frequently find small lots on ebay or here where people are selling random figures which commonly contain crew figs and leftover.

Often artillery crew figures can be modified (mangled and dismembered) for use as vehicle crews. How many do you need? I have might have some extras.

Thank you all for the suggestions. I have a pack of AT gun crews on the way already, perhaps it will have a useful figure in it. If not, I will pick up some artillery crews to man the vehicles.

Thanks again!!
