Indeed.  :D

Okay poll added and stickied. I've tried to keep them in a rough chronological order, but any other additions will have to be added after the current list, as otherwise it will wipe the poll completely. If you want to change your vote you can, but you'll have to re-do the entire poll selections from scratch. You can choose as many or as few as you like though and the limit will be changed if, or as, new selections are suggested.

Post '85 one will be done presently.  :)

We're all going to agree to disagree :)

Does anyone already make 28mm miniatures in tropical dress? Actually, has anyone scratch built the Dr. No flame-throwing armoured tractor?

It's a very diverse period as far as appearance of troops goes. Post-'85 armies appear (to me anyway as a casual observer) far less variable in the main, with only subtle differences in weapon or helmet choice being the main distinctions. That's probably an over-simplification on my part perhaps though.

I've added the DDR/BRD Border Troops here too, as they looked out of place and somewhat lonely on the post '85 Poll with all that Ultramodern stuff.  ::)

a lot of the 20mm UN and African troops could be made already with our multi head option figs, we have a lot of different head options and they are armed with fn weapons and the range included mg's mortars, and art crews.

Sorry only just noticed this thread.

I'd like to add Vietnam era US Sailors. I don't suppose that there would be much demand but there seems to be a gap in the market.
