Of course I think the established rule for any public Subbuteo game post 1980s is that at least one player should be wearing a Dukla Prague away kit.  ;)

It's already on my Xmas list.

Many thanks to all who replied - especially Carlos - one or two surprises among the manufacturers, and one or two "mainstays".  I'm looking primarily for late war British/Germans, on the basis that even the sort of ANZAC nutters who play Aussie Rules would still be wearing tin lids in action.

No plan survives first contact with the dice.

Wargames Atlantic are coming out with some plastic late war Brits in plastic. Not sure when but presumably in the not too distant. I have their Germans and French and they  are quite decent.

I noticed the Wargames Atlantic products, too - if/when the British come out, I think I shall give them a go.  Any more lead and my office floor will collapse.....

Pruned to remove gratuitous offensive language and sport talk - which has nothing to do with wargaming.
Please refresh your acquaintance with the forum rules and keep to the topic.

I think the Atlantic French are excellent (fine choice of weapons too - includes Chauchat, rifle grenades, bombers).  To my eye, the Germans suffer a bit from some dodgy anatomy around the shoulders and upper arms (proportions corrected in the French set, which came later).

Glad you said this. I had high hopes for the WA WW1 Germans, but on assembling a few they just didn’t look right. Thought it was my dodgy modelling skills  :)

For late war Germans, the Great War Miniatures can't be beat but can be supplemented with Brigade Games (stick to Great War for the heavy machine guns though; Brigade Games's are just a bit too thick).  Tsuba (sold through Empress Miniatures) has a very nice German Revolution range, which contains some Freikorps packs which are readily useable (and very well sculpted) for late war Germans.  The Tsuba figures fit nicely next to Great War and Brigade Games (Tsuba may be a tad smaller and more slender, but very well within the normal range of human sizes).  Wargames Atlantic French fit nicely alongside the three aformentioned ranges. Unfortunately Foundry's WW1 figures are too small to fit comfortably with any of these (Foundry are older, "true 25mm").

Eugene Smichnik produces a wide range of Russian WW1 and RCW figures as STL files for 3D printing. There is an example here:

His entire range of figures (including modern and WW2) is here:
