And I have discovered it was Bob from Mad Bob, not Bob Connor (the real) who did the conversions. He used mostly Artizan Winter Germans which are figures in parkas. I still intend to use the WLG plastic Winter Germans with varied headgear. Support troops will be various WLG MMGs and suchlike.

Ham and Jam, the colours I used for the greatcoat and cap was a mix of vallejo Field Blue 964 and German Field Grey 830. There will be a step by step guide for converting and painting the figures along with all of the terrain in the supplement when it gets released.

Pat, do you have an anticipated publication date?

Did you find a file for the Norwegian flags?

Morning Poiter50,
Without putting myself under any pressure, a couple of months should do it. I have most of the material gathered, notes made and photos taken but it then needs to be put into a chronological format before the graphic design, proof reading and then printers or PDF route.
No luck with the flags but the Norwegian flag is a straight forward design, so I may just hand paint straight onto the patrol markers and JOP's.
Cheers,
Pat.

Thanks, Pat, I shall await further advice. In the meantime, I will continue reading Vol 2 of Setting the Scene. I'm going to go back to Vol 1 after that and think about more snow bound terrain.
