I love how they include William the Conqueror.

Patton had balls. ;)

No doubt.

Between that and the Devil's Brigade I might just have to get into some US equipment...

That might be cool to just buy, paint up and put on my desk.

For a different point of view, Patton's dog, Willie I think, was at first a worry to Georgie.  He feared that Willie was not aggressive enough, and started to train him.
He realised that Willie was sufficiently aggressive, when he tried to take off the fender of a halftrack.
That would be a neat diorama.

Thanks. Just what I need - another hobby. But it's on the list. Apparently there are still plenty of Devil's Brigade boxes available. I guess it's not a hot seller, even though it's been discontinued. So I have some time.
