Looks great! Now we just need links for where to get such minis (^_-)v
Absolutely. These particular minis are from Peter Pig (UK) Range 8.
Flames of War by Battlefront and even Axis and Allies Miniatures would also work.
Miniatures are definitely an investment- they're not cheap. Then you have to paint them (or pay someone to do it). But what's cool about them besides the stunning look on the tabletop is that once you have them- you can use them for more games than you could play in a lifetime.
