Zvezda Art of Tactic Blitzkrieg 1940

While on the subject of Zvezda - I presume the reason why they produce 1/100 vehicles are for this board game based on the Germans v British in 1940. These games are ok - I bought the Samurai one for my son one Christmas.

Zvezda 1/100 scale snap together tanks and vehicles

These are pretty damn good. Go here to see what is available. Bought these from Frome Model Centre. If you don't have a model shop try Ebay. Most of the range is German and Soviet but they do some British products. They fit together really nicely and they cost under a fiver for most of the models. So can you game with them? There is quite a bit of stuff available for 15mm which is compatible - the Plastic Soldier company has a range of 15mm vehicles and figures. In metal and resin there's Peter Pig.
