I do hope they do the early African campaign period, having the Pzr III they 'really' need some British Matilad's, Valentines to make that period complete (more or less).

They're certainly not what I'd call "inexpensive." But they're certainly not on par with "those other guys" and one or two would suffice for my current desires. That makes it an easier pill to swallow. If I "needed" to pick up three or more Shermans, I'd be a little miffed. But one will do nicely.

But I'm still anxious to see the stowage: oil/fuel drums, jerry cans, ammo crates, etc. There's just so much potential there.

Complete Agreement with you on the cost.
In fact I'd say if someone needed "more" than 3 tanks per side, IMHO they should seriously consider going to a smaller scale. As you mentioned, their cost is not unfair or unreasonable, but even 'fair & resonable" can become very expensive when the number needed increase, the dollars start adding up FAST.

In the few Bolt Action games I have played there is always at least "one" AFV per side, in one game two, a tank and a half track. With out asking, Im sure the cost for either pair was $40 or more at this scale. Personally thats a pretty good hit to the wallet, just for 'two' models.
