DPS will provide all the Austrian and French figures for the game and they are available for sale after the game. Members of the Society will have member discount for the purchase. Besides, I have reached agreement with Herbert Wong of DPS that 5% of the discounted price will be donated to the Society to fund its operations in light of the support of DPS by the Society's members at the first Nov meeting.
