Hi I am looking to expand my tank collection for BA. I need recommendations on nice models from other companies other than Warlords for a little variety. Any suggestions? Around same price level or lower. Thanks.

What scale are you looking for?

Blitzkrieg have a good range in 1/56 resin, Rubicon produce a nice range in kit from.

I second Rubicon. Not only their vehicles but their kits of alternate builds is excellent.

I've used Blitzkrieg and like them.

JTFM and Army Group North are both excellent.

Rubicon plastics. Usually you have multiple build options for variants in a kit. Prices in line with WL. I find Co. B to be more expensive.

If you are in the US here is a good source:

Do the Rubicon vehicles come with decals?

Vigilant13 Jan 2019 8:50 a.m. PST

Rubicon do come with decals, but you have to research what they are and where they go as they don't provide any details. You do get lots though!

Some, like me, use 1/48th vehicles too.

Lots of discussions on the pros/cons of that vs. 1/56th scale on TMP.

Use a separate search engine to check into those.

Blitzkrieg vehicles do not come with decals (at least the ones I received).

Big Red Supporting Member of TMP13 Jan 2019 4:56 p.m. PST

Schogun, you are correct, decals and paint were not included :)

For Resin I like
JTFM (if you can wait long enough)
Mad Bobs

Company B have not seen first hand and are a bit more expensive if in UK

If in US then these also might be of interest 1/50th scale

I am just getting started with vehicles for my Bolt Action forces, so this is good info. So far I just assembled 1 Stuart tank, from Warlord Games. I did not realize when I purchased it that it did not come with any decals. I assumed those were included, but now I know to purchase standalone. So appreciate this info. Thanks.
