I've inherited a few Flames of War random miniatures from my brother who moved from to the states. Tried to shift them at the bring and buy, but couldn't label them well. Anyone on the forums play it? I'd love some help identifying them.

I don't play, but I feel quite confident to be able to identify at least some of the miniatures.

Cool, keep not getting to club, so I'll try pictures, hopefully clear enough.

I would post them here, but I seem to have issues getting the quality/file size correct.

They are Soviets by the looks of it with an SU-76 Antitank vehicle?

AT guns are too far away for me to tell what they are (my eyes are getting worse)

Ah, thank you. Yeah, with some of the bits and pieces being well, bits and pieces instead of assembled, doesn't help. It should be a mix of two forces, I believe. A friend was starting russians, and my brother ran hungarians, so they should be the leftover pieces of the two.

Ah could be.

I recognize a German\Romanian looking fellow in one of the bags but I can't tell much else on the individual figures.

Hi
The self- propelled gun is a SU76 Russian and the motor bike is German
The infantry looks to be mainly Russian, and the ant-tank guns are German 37 Pak 36 and/or Russian
45mm At and the one on the right is a 88mm Raketerwerfer 43. The wheel units (and wheels) are from a German 88mm Flak 18/36. In the 2nd photo, the figures on the left are German.
Hope this helps.
Tony

That helps a lot, thank you. Not going to be asking a lot for these fellows, but it's good to know I have roughly two piles to try and get rid of.

I'd have to check prices to see if I'm asking too much, but the current thought is $20 for the lot.

I'm happy to take them off your hands if you need a buyer or just link me to the trademe auction if your going that way.
