Sadly my first choice for Frenchmen, Blitz, is temporarily unavailable – ordering suspended until further notice. :(

May have to go with Pegasus or Caesar plastics instead. And while Lancer and Blitz may be compatible, I feel the ultra-thin Pegasus Frenchmen won't mix with their chubby Lancer compatriots.

Another recommendation for Early War Miniatures. If you want it they sell it. Nice crisp castings and excellent service. Haven't got any of their vehicles so can't speak of them.

Thanks!
I’m now mostly sorted for riflemen and other assorted squaddies. Still short of AT guns and a few heavy weapons. The EWM vehicles are sadly 1/76 and somewhat smaller than most of my current French vehicle park which is 1/72. ;)
