Eastern Front
28mm skirmisH resources
Gaming the Eastern Front in 28mm
Greetings All,
Im thrilled and honored to have been the author for Two Hour Wargames
NUTS Eastern Front WW2 supplement book. This particular theatre of the war
has fascinated me for the last decade, and most of my 28mm WW2 skirmish
gaming activities center around the Eastern Front. I know a lot of people game
the Eastern Front in 15mm and microarmor, but since those arent really scales
for which I have a broad knowledge base, Ive decided to list a few places you
can go to get the 28mm figures and terrain you need for skirmish gaming the
Eastern Front. My collection includes products from most of these companies.

Information About the Eastern Front
In addition to figures and terrain, there is a large amount of information out
there about the Eastern Front but David Glantz and Stephen Zaloga are two
historians who have covered this theatre of the war prolifically and in detail.
Here are some great starter resources for understanding the Eastern Front. Each
of these authors have more in-depth looks at specific campaigns, Glantz in particular is the current master historian of all things Eastern Front.
