Looking to do more late war scenarios that include using Hitler Youth. Strange request, but does anyone make these type of troops in 15mm?

I can't think of any specifically sold as such. If close counts, though, Peter Pig is probably your best bet. They have a massive range, including some Volkssturm, and their sculpts tend to be less bulky than other ranges. I have used some of their civilian figures as young teens alongside bulkier 15/18mm figures, so mixing them with, for example, Battlefront/Flames of War Volkssturm may work.

Battlefront also have a "Partizans and Polizei" set with a number of armed civilians, who, although billed as russians, could easily pass as inhabitants of rural germany or any number of other places.

You could possibly even look for 10/12mm figures and use those.

Edit: Well, hmm, can't add the photo of the mixed base I did with mixed 15mm/18mm figures.

Dis you end up getting the figures?

What scenarios did you have in mind?

I have seen one LW EF one in one of the specials.
One with a railway station will see if I can find it.

May have trouble locating this one as it's been withdrawn whilst BF reinvent late war.

Typical!
I have lived through three 70's revivals (and the real thing) 40 years and four reinventions of LW by BF in 10 years.
