On 17th my webhost contacted me to say all had been fixed but still, I and others couldn’t access the site.
After contacted the webhost and a lot of detective work myself I finally resolved the problem. One of the 568 files which was on the server and was only 1kb in size had been corrupted when their server crashed. This totally blocked out the whole site.
As you can imagine it was difficult finding this problem but all is safe and well again now.

I don't want to go as big as 15mm or 20mm scale so my options are:
Not a great deal of coverage here. The Germans are well catered for, but only Char 1 and H35 available for the French, the British are worse with only the Matilda II.
These are a lovely range of figures and the detail for 3mm is amazing. Both the French and Germans are extremely well catered for. No British yet.
Heroic and Ros
Good coverage from this mainstay of manufacturers, I have lots of their 1944-45 figures already.
Some vehicles missing from the French (R35, H39) and the British (A10, A13 and Matilda I). The sculpts are not as nice as Heroic and Ros.
These are very reasonably priced too again a few missing vehicles for both the French H39) and the British (A10, A13, Matilda II).
Skytrex Action 200
These figures have been around a long time and some of the moulds show it. But all the vehicles are available.
One of my favourite manufacturers for 10mm, however, they have only recently started WW2. The only French tank they do at the moment is S35 and the only British one for the period is the Matilda 2.
A relatively new company they have an extensive range of vehicles for this period. They are a little pricier than the other 10mm.
I'm still undecided whether to go for 3mm with 3-5 tanks on a base representing a Platoon or for 10mm. The later figures look better on the table so I'm swaying that way.....
Maybe I should look at rules first?
The Gutenberg Project of Australia has released all of Robert E Howards Conan books as free downloads from their site.
I’m slowly ploughing my way through them now. If you want a good e-book reader for your computer I recommend Tom’s eTextReader which makes reading these books on the PC much easier.

I have been very busy of late with plenty of chores at home for Mrs Freewargamesrules.
This has stopped me from updating my blog, although I have been able to keep on top of the freewargamesrules website updates.
Hopefully things will be back to normal in the next couple of days!
