Strategia e Tattica is an Italian company specialising in 28mm Italian soldiers through the ages. Between the WWII and the RSI range, this company is the most comprehensive stop you'll find covering the Italian forces. The figures were sculpted by Francesco Marchesini and include Mussolini and General staff figures, infantry and support, cavalry, paratroopers, Italian SS, Alpini, Bersaglieri, Italian stormtroopers, militia, casualties, guns and vehicles. If you're looking to build a WW2 Italian force, this range has it all.

3. Black Tree Designs
One of the most comprehensive 28mm WWII ranges to date, the BTD figures range from brilliant to mediocre. The Italian subrange is rather limited and offers Italian infantry with rifles, SMG's or baretta's.
4. Bolt Action Miniatures
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, Adam Dechande and Richard Ansell. Vehicles by Simon Bargery, Olaf Meys and Nigel Higgins. There are currently two ranges for WW2 Italians: Paratroopers, sculpted by Paul and Italian army infantry, sculpted by Richard.

5. West Wind Productions
West Wind Productions has quite a comprehensive range of 28mm figures and vehicles for WWII, called 'Berlin or Bust'. The Italian range however, is rather limited, with some officers and infantry. The WW2 figures are a smallish 28mm.
One of the first manufacturers of 25mm WWII miniatures, their range is still one of the most comprehensive available to this day. The figures are 25mm and a bit on the small side by current standards. The Italian range includes European theatre infantry and support, North Africa infantry and support, Bersaglieri and Alpini. Sadly, there are no pictures.
