They both do/will do some vehicles (Empress has some nice US vehicles that could be captured kit?*) but you might also want to check out Company B for Toyotas and older Soviet stuff (http://www.companyb.biz/. (*Sloppy Jaloppy also has some M113s http://sloppyjalopy.com/)
which period gets the most love, 70s, early 80s, late 80s? I’m having uniform headaches…
I’m looking forward to what is coming out for it in 28mm – may even join in myself and jump on/try to create the bandwagon. (Currently looking at some proposals for Dutch troops, oddly enough.)
If TFL come through with their non-Afghan modern variant of CoC, that’d generate more love for the genre too.
This may be me projecting my own aspirations, but some modern gaming that isn’t assymetric advance-to-ambush should be popular.

Cameraman is now up, with a group shot below and detailed pic on the blog link above.
Paul – I should think the AU guys will be up to a dozen or so poses – a couple of leaders, some G3 armed guys, an RPG and a PKM I think. Certainly enough to do a 10 man section* of unique poses and a few figures for a platoon HQ. The plan is to have swappable heads for more variety/usefulness. I’ll probably also do some vehicle crew, as Sloppy Jalopy has a nice looking BMP2 that would suit Uganda’s AMISOM operations.
I’d like to do more African troops and some militias – the 2nd Congo War appeals given the variety of participants and kit. Eg I’d like to bring out something like the Cascavel and a few Zimbabwean troops, but they may be a little way down the pecking order. I’ll probably also do some early Ugandans (ie for Entebbe) next year when we release our 1980s IDF.
However I’m conscious that there’s already quite a few manufacturers doing African figures so I’ve got to make sure I don’t blow our budget on ranges that only I would buy
(*I’m assuming 10 man sections, need to dig deeper to work out their platoon TOE)
Earther: Thanks and noted. Lets see what Santa brings
And the third reporter is now shown on the left of this group shot… TV cameraman to follow.
