Supply Truck figure alternatives Fri, 13 May 2011 22:45
Since Hedgerow Hell is no longer available and may never be, I was curious if someone has found some supply truck miniature figures that could be used as a substitute.

There are 2 breakthrough scenarios that use supply trucks and my 10 year old son is a "purist" and won't play a scenario unless we have the appropriate figures. I suggested we use the half tracks or jeeps from Dieppe but that didn't fly. It's too bad DOW doesn't at least make the supply truck figures available. I'm sure there are others that would like to have the figures without the overlord maps.

Luckily I was able to able to snag a Tigers in the Snow off ebay (although a bit pricey) for the Tiger tanks! My son and I have decided we like breakthrough and overlord (2 player) scenarios the best. We're hoping the next thing from DOW is Campaign Book Vol. 2 with more breakthrough scenarios and Pacific theater action.

The scale will be off, but if I remember right, Axis & Allies: Battle of the Bulge had US and German supply trucks. Those might work.

Right now on ebay, someone is selling transport trucks from the game Tide of Iron. Here is the link: http://cgi.ebay.com/Tide-Iron-Game-Parts-3-Opel-Blitz-Transp ort-Trucks-/360362807934?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item 53e74c127e

This might be what you are looking for.

Thanks for the ebay link! I just snapped up the set of 6 supply trucks. Now I just hope my son will find them acceptable!

I managed to pick up the TOI trucks. They are bigger than the M44 ones but they fit the board hexes OK. The good thing about them is that you can pick up different ones for the different nations (British, US, German)

Hi there,
My first post on this forum, so much to find and read here!
I have a question:
I bought the Equipment pack, Great work! (it has 3 Supply Truck figures). When playing Breakthrough 'From Noville to Foy', you need 6 trucks (as how I read it), so not enough trucks. I got this punch board with TWO ST badges, ( forgot with what expansion it came with). So, one badge short?! Am I missing something?

Campaign Book #2 had two Supply Truck (ST) badges, presumably because the scenarios in the game only called for 2 trucks(?). The Campaign book rules may tell you what to do with the badges (e.g., "use standard armor units with a badge to indicate they are supply trucks". This is what is done for Half-Tracks in Winter Wars.

Thank you for your reply!
Yes, that should be it, CB #2 came along with a punchboard. But still short on one ST badge. Will look for ST figures on internet I guess.
Do you know if there been been winter hill tiles with roads printed on them? Now, I have to use green ones in 'From Noville to Foy' (Breakthrough)

You have enough badges to represent two units if you are willing to use 3 armor figures per unit with 1 badge. The other alternative is to use 1 Truck figure per unit with two infantry figures to represent a Truck unit. Just remove the infantry figures with the first 2 supply actions or hits.
