Anyone know best places for 20mm interwar to get involved with VBCW please

Are you after a list of kit and manufacturers? Or eye candy for inspiration? Most people doing VBCW seem to stick to 28mm which is where the specialist manufacturers. Which is a shame as there is plenty of interesting stuff in 20mm if you are prepared to look for it.

There is a guy who goes by Wingate who I'd say is the leading 20mm VBCW guy – his stuff is great.

This link should be a start

A list of any manufacturer who provides if possible… 28mm is expensive.. 20mm is just the right scale for me..

Check out Irregular. CP Models Carrie's TQD, which has gangsters and police. They also have WWII German police in plainclothes.

This site has 20mm figures for 1915/1920 along with the Bandera SCW figures. It's in England.

Early War Miniatures should be your first of call: link

Frontline Wargaming does excellent resin vehicles: link

They also do WWI figures: link

SHQ Miniatures has an excellent BEF range:

Their Dutch range also has a useful tankette:

FAA Miniatures has useful civilians and Home Guard types in their Britain Stands Alone range:

Elhiem Figures has pulpy stuff that may also be useful: link

Militia types are also available from Minairons, though a lot of them are in helmets unlikely to have made their way to Britain:

Shell Hole Scenics does WWI sailors: link

Sgt's Mess has odds and sods that would not look out of place:

They look like some great options cheers… There's just one extra thing I'm looking for… Russians… The civil war variety at a guess… Does anyone do em

Maha Bandula28 Jan 2019 10:44 p.m. PST

Frontline Wargaming has them: link

If you want chunkier figures, there's B&B Miniatures: link

Perfect ideas! I am also in the hunt for something like this. My idea was to use different 1/72 plastics, HAT and Strelets come to mind. But where to get civilians and personalities?

Early War Miniatures are great.

Birch gun and Independent if Resin are very useful

The info on here is great. I appreciate everyone's help…. That tinsoldier website… Is there a UK distributor.. Looks some nice random stuff on there I'd like

Fred, AFAIK Reviresco don't have a UK distributor.
