Just as a matter of interest, do gamers put tank crew figures in the hatches of tanks for wargaming, or do they just represent them closed down? Any thoughts?

Both. I tend to consider the ones with the crew showing to be command tanks.

Both. Though Russian tanks tend to be buttoned up.

Both – like the Colonel ones with a crewman are command tanks

Always have open hatches and commanders.
For me it makes them look "lived in" and provides a focus.

That seems very conclusive. Thanks everyone.

Both, although as noted by others, I often use the unbuttoned ones to denote command vehicles.
