Chadwick, F.  Command Decision More detail than NQM,  1 Km ~ 20cm. Excellent, particularly for the "Bathtub Barbarossa" Campaign. I used their Hex Map for my own Eastern Front Campaign. [Last Accessed on ]

Horn C. (2007) Charlie Horn's Wooden Warriors Site.  54mm Plastic Soldiers with Wooden Tanks. Charlie has captured the 1950-60's era Hollywood idea of how WWII was fought perfectly in his outdoor dioramas. He has had a whale of a time doing it too. If I find myself getting too pompous about Wargaming, this site is the perfect cure. [Last Accessed on 25th May 2007]

 Sheil, T. The Army Men homepage is another site from across The Pond which is at once impressive and comforting if you like to do things your own way without much regard for convention. If you care about uniform details, you won't like it. Here is a quote from its Author, Thor:

"You don't have to read the associated comic books to understand who's on which side with Army men. It's simple - one side is green and the other is another color." [Last Accessed on 25th May 2007]

Shulman, P. (2007)  Peter  Shulman's War is  for wargamers who dream about gaming in the garden with 54mm soldiers, but don't have their own private Wood to do it in. (Thanks to Don Maddox for pointing me towards the site). [Last Accessed on 25th May 2007]

Murphy, T. (2007) Divide by Zero  § is  a page containing some super fonts - I found "Tom's new Roman" there (a different Tom - Tom Murphy), and Tombats. [Last Accessed on 25th May 2007]

 If you want to see tombats on this website in all their glory, you will need to download all of them from Tom's site. They are fun enough to download for their own sake. They are free, and take up little space, just drop Tom an email to say "thanks". If not, you will just see some large numbers on a few pages - it's no big deal. (Thanks to Bob Cordery for spotting that one)
