One of the latest new comers to the period and already sporting an impressive range, with monthly new releases. 28mm figures sculpted by Paul Hicks, lately with help by Adam Dechande. Vehicles by Simon Bargery, Olaf Meys and Nigel Higgins. The range includes Poles, with infantry, cavalry and a TKS tankette.

2. Black Tree Designs

One of the most comprehensive 28mm WWII ranges to date, the BTD figures range from brilliant to mediocre. A small Polish range was recently added, consisting of riflemen in summer uniform and winter uniform (greatcoats) and a 75mm cannon.

3. Alpha miniatures

Alpha Miniatures produced a 28mm WWII range with some interesting models that aren't available elsewhere. Sadly, the range is now discontinued and the company is looking to sell the moulds. A small amount of stock is still available for order. For Poland, the range includes 1939 infantry with backpacks, cavalry and dismounted cavalry.

- Polish cavalry:

4. Eureka Miniatures

Although never officially released, Eureka miniatures produced a pack of 28mm WWII Chinese riflemen. While these figures aren't currently available from the catalog, Nic Robson of Eureka miniatures is a very helpful person and it never hurts to drop him a line to find out whether there are any copies of the figures left.
