I'm posting this question here and not in the 'Tigers in the Snow' section, because I hope it'll catch more viewers here.

Since it's becoming impossible to get a hold of the Tigers in the Snow expansion and since all but one of the scenarios from that expansion are now available on the DOW website (see this thread: http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/746727/3-of-the-4-scenarios-...)and since a few scenarios in the Breakthrough expansion and the Campaign Book Volume 2 use them as well, I have been thinking about a way to represent the tiger units.

At first I wanted to just use one German tank from the base game, with one of te badges from the Terrain Pack to show it's a Tiger. But then I started thinking about buying a few (5 seems the most needed for standard scenarios) Tiger figures online. But I'm a bit stuck on scale now.

So here's my question: what scale is the most like the tanks in Memoir '44? Is the scale used for Flames of War too big? I have been considering buying five of these Tiger I figures by Pendraken Miniatures: http://www.pendraken.co.uk/GR84-p4368/. Does anyone here know if these are the right scale to be used with Memoir?

I use Tigers from the Axis & Allies collectable range. You can pick them up on Ebay.

I find that Axis & Allies Miniatures fit nicely, although a bit pricey.

Tanks & Artillery: 1/160, or N scale, or 10mm (Perrin, Pendraken, etc)

So Pendraken should be OK!

Thank you, Filip.
I just bought "Tigers in the Snow" from them.
It seems they still have some.

Jacques.
