NSV / Kord heavy machine gun would be nice. I mean, russians started phasing out Dshk in 70's, so NSV teams would be quite useful for any late cold war or modern scenario involving russians former ussr.

It would be great for some "British in Aden" (or any far flung post war outpost) type figures;
SLRs, no scrim helmets, short sleeves and or shorts, maybe gas masks for riot duties...

yes some brits in long trousers and shirt sleeves rolled up with SLR's would be great and so versatile

Vietnamese civilians would be great - farmers ploughing fields, threshing rice, sitting doing nothing, women & children. Civvies in peasant dress as well as more sophisticated dress for cities. Good for many things including pretending to not be VC.

Thanks for the additional West Germans - including all those police figures - excellent and fun to paint!

Was wondering if you'd be prepared to use your CW British seated figures and redo them as West Germans. I'm making a couple of Hueys to be used by my West German paras and would love to be able to have some seated Germans to go in the back. Just got some of your helo pilots for up the front.

A seated unarmed West German figure would be useful as well - to be used to crew a BW Bofors L40 AA gun - I'm sure it could have other uses as well.

Also need some West German mortar crew and a 120mm mortar with the funky triangular base as they used.

Thanks

Well, seeing the Cold War range continue to expand would be great. I believe you're doing more Russians, but seeing an expansion of the FN FAL guys with M1 helmets would be great, as would a Polish range to sit alongside the excellent NVA.

Hello,
I would like a rifleman with ammo box to assist the German cold war MG-gunner.
I know, it is a very special wish: For personal reasons German cold war fieldjäger (MP) with beret and uzi! ;)
