Re: VB Launchers

“I don't know enough about the French Army to know if the VB grenadiers of 1940 were equipped with carbines or rifles but I suspect they would have Lebel 1886 or MAS36 rifles“ As an aside, I haven’t seen carbines only rifles and from most of the pictures they’re lebels, although one or two mas36’s, ...

Re: Best accurate BEF 28mm, suggestions please.

(2) how "out of place" - if at all - 1st Corps 1/48 vehicles look beside everyone else's 1/56 vehicles (because they do stuff nobody else makes).....

Re: Best accurate BEF 28mm, suggestions please.

Hi Baron, thanks for your response, as I know very little about the British Army and BEF, I assumed the new BT British were more accurate than others as they at least have gas mask bags? Hi TT, thanks again, the 1/48 is a shame, but hey, there are other suppliers. 1st Corps also supply in CoC 1940 r...

Best accurate BEF 28mm, suggestions please.

It’s all there in the title, I’ve been looking at the new Black Tree figures (please don’t descend into problems with BT delivery, yadda, yadda).
