These are 28mm WW1 figures from a number of ranges. They represent British, German, Austrian Bulgarian, Greek, Italian, Russian and Turkish troops who fought on the Salonika front in WW1. In particular the more open warfare on the Struma front where skirmish actions took place throughout the campaign.

The Warhammer Historical Great War rules are ideal for these actions. However, I am now using Bolt Action. Here is my basic army list for Austro-Hungary and another for Serbia.

Austrian early war Hussars are the latest addition.

Further Reading
