I know several lines were put on hiatus in order to focus on mid- and late-war supply issues. Any rumors on when or whether EW and/or Pacific will resume production and sales?

Why just Battlefront? Nearly everything is available from other sources.

I know they are overpriced, bla, bla, and bla but I like Battlefront Early War French vehicles. A lot.

I also am disappointed by the lack of Battlefront Early War French Vehicles. However recently I discovered a range of 1/100 early way French vehicles made by Zedrano in Russia. I purchased many from The prices were good and the postal service was also good. Now all I have to do is to make the kits up and paint them.

Its a shame, they release and then withdraw figures when they aren't in their current focus period. I am trying to get hold of some of their Indian army figures and British 'Mediterranean' troops in shirtsleeves, both of which they have now discontinued.

Their factory in Malaysia is not working at fully capacity because the plague is pretty nasty there at the moment.

Add in the state of International Shipping and you might really want to look to 'local' sources like Old Glory

I recently bought some Peter Pig French tanks, R-35's and H-39's and they are quite nice. Or, I've bought some resin printed trucks from here and they are beautiful, they have lots of French vehicles: link

Came here just to post this question. I have the new FOW rulebook and have never played. I guess I bought it before I realized that early war stuff wasn't "current."

I'm really not interested in late war. I want to play early war against Poles, French and eventually Soviets – maybe even Soviets vs. Finns.

What's a newbie to do? Can you use the old books with the new rules with little fuss? Do I use another rules set?
