Not to be mean, but Cromwells were the worst pick for a generic British tank. The good old Sherman tank can be used for Late War Brits, Mid War Brits, Late War Americans, Mid War Americans, and Soviet Emchas.
When we first started FOW, my buddies and I just used appropriately sized pieces of cardboard with the unit description written on the front. It was great for getting a few test games in before committing to purchasing the miniatures.
As to Emund’s comment, I have to point something out. Yes, compared to Familia Gladiatoria, FOW is expensive. But compared to 40k, FOW is about the same. Finding a place to get cheap 15mm vehicles (like trucks and jeeps) helps a lot. I have had good success with Old Glory Miniatures.
The more novels I read about Space Marines, the more I am convinced that they are simply undersized Ogryn with better armor saves.
