    I would like to introduce myself. I am John Olsen, President of Black Tree Design. This is my first time on The Wargames Website.

    I have been actively involved in the Miniatures Business for over 30 years (ouch!) and have recently taken over the reins at BTD. We have an enormous range of Miniatures and are looking to the future. We are planning a great deal of expansion in 2015 and I would like your help. We have a hefty WWII Range, what should we add? Anything particular you would really like to see? Your thoughts and suggestions would be really appreciated.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    John Olsen

    Hi Mike,

    Hi John:

    I’m not really a 28mm gamer as I prefer 15mm minis. But having looked at your WW II range I would say the areas where you could expand which would also complement what you have already got are:

    Soviet Partisans.***

    Soviet Regular Late War Cavalry with SMG’s. **

    Some Soviet Cossack Cavalry. *

    Finish Infantry. **

    Early War British. **

    Expand your Early War French.**

    Japanese. **

    American Early War Infantry. *

    Cheers and welcome aboard!

    Standard squaddies, command, Vickers and crew, Boys anti-tank and crew, light mortar and crew and medium mortar and crew would be great (I have a plan to do Operation Sealion, I have your early war Fallschirmjager already so early war British from you would go with them so well 🙂 ).

    Hi, I’ll raise a long shot suggestion of Hungarians or Romanians.

    Hi John.

    BTD was not always easy to order from in the past, it’s great news if it’s working well again.

    I’ll share your question around me, but IMO the most important thing for new additions would be compatibility with other popular 28mm ranges?

    Hi

     

    Great to hear that someone is looking to breathe new life into what is a very extensive range, with some very nice figures in it.

    My personal favourite is the foraging Soviet character, complete with liberated fascist chicken… 🙂

    My own personal preference would be for Soviet cavalry, as this arm of the Red Army is represented by just two figures…

    Compatibility wise I think you nailed it for the figures.  Vehicles wise my own preference is for 1/56 but I know that others prefer the 1/48 look..

    Hope things go well!

    I would like more Italians in European uniform. Even more riflemen poses as it was a very rifle-heavy army. Also some support weapons, mortars and stuff!
