Lovely photo report! We'll done Robin.
Well I recognised the German infantry, as Airfix, and well painted too! But I didn't recognise the Russians? I am out of touch with many plastic ranges which have expanded so greatly since my start with Airfix!
Like the use of 20mm figures as game counters, but smaller scale buildings for the village markers. Kind of mixing up of scales, that I like to do so buildings footprint don't become too large for game scale.

The Russians are HaT figures... the Airfix Germans (as you rightly identify) are indeed a classic (that grenade thrower eh? LOL). The figures are so old the plastic has become very brittle. There are now several that have simple snapped at the ankles ..

Thanks for the kind comments.
Robin
