    @Rapossu:

    They need a Jagdpanther in the late war german set, coolest unit ever.

    I love the Jagdpanther but it looks very similar to the Panther.
    Since I did a Stug III tank destroyer I needed a later war and since the Elefant is so iconic , I decided to go with it.
    Trust me, there will be another German set in late 2012.
    I need a heavy tank so the tiger I was a perfect choice, used even by the Afrika Korps.
    Tiger II was used in a limited role.

    Very true. The Tiger I saw action in Tunisia. U.S. forces were first exposed to the Tiger in Tunisia.

    FMG is making two armor sculpts for the German set and they chose the Tiger 1 and the Tiger II.  Personally, I think they should have made one of them a light/medium tank, but looking forward to them none the less.

    That’s cool.  We can always have more Tiger Is.  Now Germany will get extra Heavy tanks.  Bwah ha ha ha ha

    Hey Everybody.  I got my Axis Minors in yesterday.  I must say, I am really impressed with these pieces.  Excellent detail.  Really looking forward to working them into my game.
    I got 5 sets each of black, dark grey and light grey, 2 sets each of yellow and ivory.  I think I’m going to be getting more.
    A while back, some of you were concerned about whether or not HBG’s pieces would match FMG’s pieces in color.  Well, FMG said their grey Germans will match the color of their German Combat Dice.  I set some of HBG’s dark grey pieces by some German Combat dice and as you can see, they match up perfectly.  These pieces should blend in very well with the FMG German units when we get them.

    The truck and the armored car. I would like to thank coach for the excellent job that he has done with the pieces, plus the shipping was amazingly fast. Job well done. FMGs Italian pieces are next.
