Yes, Barrie & Co have expanded the mid 1980s Cold War range with US infantry. The style is the same chunky exaggerated sculpts that will paint up well.  They are Marmite - you love them or hate them.

These chaps are in the Fritz style (PASGT) helmet that was appearing in NATO from 83/84.  It reinforces my belief that the fictional war that never was (Cold War Europe going hot), remains a very popular war game. Timecast have staked a claim to mid 80s.  That leaves the field open to Pendraken  for 1950s, 60s, 70s and early 80s. 

The Falklands ranges (Brit and Argentine) effectively provide infantry types from 1958 onwards. All we need is a complimentary WP and Soviet range.  Add the Korean types and we are good to go.

Is Cold War Europe a more popular game period than say Arab Israeli ?

Arab Israeli 73 for me to.

Everything Cold War Europe is fantasy I fear. If you have to have T62s bearing down on M60s go to the Sinai.

Interesting.  There is of course no correct answer here.  As Dave says, the reality of east v west AFV encounters was in the Middle East.  Against that every NATO staff college wargamed Hot War Europe to a very high level.

But its all useful market research so keep the choices and logic behind the choices coming.
