With every release DOW makes me so GLAD that I signed on to this game. The support it gets is unparalled in my experience. To have these aditional units that can be used in so many ways.... I can't say enough good stuff about Richard Borg and his highly talented crew.
I hope a "Thank you" and (purchasing multiples of each expansion) will be enough to keep them going for many years to come Smile

You guys, and the guys here on these boards rock the house IMHO Wink

If you're painting the figures one color, then you don't need to worry about the historic colors of the nation (which by World War II were all fairly similar) because you want to figures to look different than all the others.

So instead of using a color table, you can simply pick a color you like that represents the nation in your mind...and that will be easily distinguishable from the other units that are in the other expansions. Smile

I like this idea, If I paint mine at all, I might just paint the French troops and the Polish troops.

The LongTom was the most disappointing miniature of the bunch.
Looks like it was sculpted by a 3rd grader compared to what it should have been.

GFI Minifigs (no longer in business) made a great n-scale LongTom

I too enjoy the expansions and the support DoW has given M'44 ... However, I do feel for the folks joining the party late.

Having recently met Richard I've gained a new appreciation for the C&C systems.

When I was a kid I put a model of a Longtom cannon to gether. It 6 wheels. I think the kit was by Revell. None of these minis look like, or come close. In the picture on the box, which mini is it?

That part "it 6 wheels" should have read "it had 6 wheels."

Thanks guys.

The more you look for german camo patterns (and other designs) the more you have to admit they realy had a lot of feeling for the visual.

Very nice attention to detail -- the Germans went to that "spotted" camouflage late in the war when the Allies had air superiority/supremacy because from the air, it created the same visual effect that sunlight filtering through a forest canopy does.

Nicely done.

With Belgian taxes on labor, that could become an expensive project Laughing
