Does anyone know of any suitable figures for the Vulcan VIB? I am thinking of early war figures or possibly desert campaign settings. Any help would be most appreciated

They've done a driver and commander in resin. They are early war, more BEF than desert.
Available throught the Lion Marc website.

Battledress, greatcoats etc were seen in the desert, especially during the winter as nights were very cold. (I seem to remember John Sandars portaying Western desert force figures wrapped in Greatcoats in Airfix Magazine in the 70s...that dates me)

The Box of course being the new Bronco Bofors Crew. They are in Battledress with Respirators and no webbing. Perfect for BEF figures. You can paint them black for the RTR ones. The Miniart Jeep and Armoured Car crew set may be useful for the Western Desert/Med
