They do make nice stuff, and are planning on releasing a lot more Cold War armor. Hopefully, some more infantry to go with them as well, though you can get troops from Minifigs too.

There's a pretty good selection of Cold War tanks available as prepainted plastics for decent prices. Some stuff goes for crazy prices too, so I usually try to avoid the latter.

Wish someone would produce a Cold War, Bundeswehr, Marder 1, 1A1, and/or 1A2. You can get the 1A3s from a couple of sources, but they weren't produced until after the Cold War ended, sadly.

The release of the early West German M47s and HS-30s in plastic for a very reasonable price is encouraging. You can field whole companies of them for just a few dollars, and a platoon is even more affordable, even at 1:1 ratio of minis to real vehicles on the tabletop.

A pretty simple poll question, are you a 1:144th scale (or 10mm to 12mm) Cold War gamer (19461989)?

Feel free, if yes, to elaborate on which theaters and periods you game in, or are interested in gaming in, after you answer the poll.

For me, the answer is yes.

Primarily the hypothetical Cold War in Europe, though I have interests in other theaters as well, e.g. Arab-Israeli Wars, Vietnam, Korean War, etc.

I'm working on forces for the U.S., West Germans, Soviets/Warsaw Pact, Swedes, Finns, etc. Also interested in creating forces for the British, Danes and Norwegians too.
