All but the elhiem ones have arrived along with a pack of beret heads from Adler

They are something else and on a par with AB, will definitely be getting some of their Germans

As for the others I think I'm going to stick with AB, fill one or two spots with the Simon stuff and see if I can convert some regular AB bits with the Adler heads

Whether I need to sort the bergens for all I will have to do a bit if research

It's a shame the battlefield/blitz stuff is no more they seem to have some nice options

So final plan will be a mix of AB and simons soldiers, 1 pack of elhiem also works, shame they only have riflemen

The remainder will be AB with Adler beret heads

Although I might try and convert pack or two of kelly's heroes

My only other dilemma is the packs

Bergens all round or able to get away with a few p37 packs?

Only been able to find one picture of a commando with a p37 pack, not even sure it's in theatre.

Distinct lack of support options requires conversions
