Looks interesting.

I look forward to seeing them in the plastic.

Good to hear.

Would like to know more about the rules and how they work - dice conventions, unit sizes intended for (seems like company level, based upon the offerings and units, but I guess it could be for battalions as well), general idea of how the rules work, perhaps even a Battle Report of a game they've been used for, etc..

Would also like to see more photos of the models themselves, and the troops, too.

Wish American M60A1 or M60A3 tanks, M113s, and West German armor were for sale, too.

Yes to other nations' stuff being available, but why is it so hard to get French vehicles?
Although (in theory) the same size (1/200th) all the samples I have ordered (from
different manufacturers) are different sizes!

Because no game makers realise (or possibly would admit) that the French secretly had plans to assist the defence of Europe?

The USP is this is Norhag and so the headline forces are BAOR followed by Dutch, Belgian and Germans, with Frrench and US as follow up. I hope that the range will follow that.

Good morning all,
Do we know whether or not the miniatures as shown on the box art are the production figures or are they prototypes?  They seem sort of 'soft' and at least one pic I saw of the BTRs looked as if the space between the wheels was filled in.  This has left me a little cold on the figures.  I had originally thought about doing this in 6mm but the cost of shipping of just the rule book had me looking at the starter sets.
All the best,
Mike

Can't wait to see the figures, especially.

Ah that gets my interest level up a bit :)
I have quite a bit of the PSC 15mm stuff and it is fantastic so I was a tad underwhelmed by the pics of the 10mm stuff. 
Thank you
Mike
