And 20mm is cheaper and quicker to paint.

So you could justify that Dutch army as well.

and the Luxembourg Gendarmerie, which you could probably do 1 for 1.

And for the huns you've got leg infantry, motorised Fallschirmjaeger.

Then on base Huns and Brits, you could add Norwegians.

And think of the vehicles.

But of course, you have just bought the book to improve your understanding of the early war.

20mm is the red haired step child of wargaming.

It’s either going to be FJ (a long held dream) or Blitzkrieg Jerry’s. I have the Brits already. Cheese eating surrender monkeys have never appealed to me Post 1815 and neither do any of the other continental German doormats, I mean continental WW2 nations.

I've finally managed to ID that mystery armoured car that I bought on Ebay before I went on holiday. It didn't look right for a Dingo but looked even less like any other British AC. The fact that it came with 2 Bren guns (1 on an AA pedestal) put me on the right track. It's an ACV India Pattern.
