In search of BoB 28mm vehicle drivers
« on: July 19, 2021, 03:27:30 AM »
Greeting folks, I've gotten my hands on some of those wonderful models of yesteryear cars and trucks that ever populate 28mm ole timey games and I need to crew them.
I'm trying to find some Chinese drivers and passengers for these cars to properly fit my warlord and nationalist project armies. If anyone could point me in the right direction I can promise you a position of respect in my far away province..

Thanks!

Reiver Casting has several driver sets in their 20th century lines:

Warbases carries them as well and has them grouped together:

FFS, someone send them some photos so they can get them on their websites.  :-[ :-[ That annoys me no end in this digital age.

Oh man, reiver castings..  I'm sure I'll get some flak for this but... well I ordered some reiver castings miniatures once, they were by far the worst quality miniatures I ever got.

Some of these might help https://www.empressminiatures.com/veh10-vehicle-crew-1271-p.asp   Very geared to SCW but some may be useable (or work with head swaps)

Company B has a selection of vehicle crews.  Most are WWII but there are some interwar figures available, too.

Rafm has some interwar drivers and passengers in their call of Cthulhu - classic miniatures set.  These are small compared to modern 28mm figures, but that might be a bonus when trying to fit them into whatever vehicles you have!

1st Corps has some drivers and passengers as well, WWI, interwar and WWII.
