Minor Axis Army Pieces


  • Customizer

    I know that some German fighters and Stukas were used in Spain during their civil war, but did any of the Axis Minor countries really have much of an air force?  I know the Finns had some – American built Brewster Buffalos believe it or not – but I don’t remember hearing much of a Bulgarian, Romanian or Hungarian air force.  I thought those countries mainly relied on German air support.



  • The Finns also used Fokker DXXI’s, and the NEI forces also used Brewster Buffalos… which means that the Finns and the NEI forces were both using both Buffalos and DXXI’s for opposite sides in the war: boy they sure knew how to pick 'em, those Finns!

    But anyway…

    …so either the Buffalo or the Fokker DXXI could be made in the white version of the Dutch/Neutral set and serve for Finnland without it being in this set.  If you also run the neutrals set in yellow and green, (which would be cool, as the Dutch infantry used Romanian helmets, or rather the other way around) then you could use any of the Dutch aircraft or ships for Axis neutrals if a situation occurs where it makes sense…

    Which makes me think, you should consider adding the Fokker G I to the Dutch/ Neutral set for a tac bomber

    If you do those two things (1. add Romanian yellow & Bulgarian green to the Dutch/ Neutral color run & 2. add Tac Bomber to Dutch/ Neutral set) then the Axis minors have anything air or naval that they might need covered by either the Dutch or the German air/naval set, and the Axis minors set can safely stick with land units.  (This is, of course assuming that the Axis minors will never be able to afford something as expensive as a heavy bomber, battleship or aircraft carrier… but I’d say that’s a pretty solid assumption… :-D)

    Hey coach, I was just looking at your list for the Axis Minors set and it says there will only be 2 Panzer IIIs per set.  About a week or so back, I could have sworn it said 4 Panzer IIIs.  I take it you decided to put in more of one of the other units?
    I was wondering, when you get these pieces going, will you be selling them individually as well as in sets?

    I am playing with the numbers and sculpts right now.
    It is not always what I want in a mold but comes down to money. I will sell these as sets but will offer them for sale on individual pieces after a couple months. At least that is the plan. You might even see it in another set of German pieces.
