Okay, adious muchachos to the New Years resolutions and good intentions, the flesh is weak, and all that kind of stuff, Vandenbrande, just don`t, don`t say anything...
I know I`m getting more and more hooked to a new scale for gaming after having been drooling over some additions that should enter the LPL later on this month. The scale is 15mm, the era I don`t care.
I actually like the overall feel of these littler fellas. The detail is good enough to work with (as 10mm and 6mm are really to tiny to do some small details on) yet small enough to get away with not painting that most horrific thing on a model... the eyes.
Now I admit, I have had a sizeable 15mm force before. Flames of War Italians to be precise, and a serious bunch of models it was
I departed with them years ago when the game ran dry at the Tin Soldiers, but I still have my boxes for my Villers-Bocage british Cromwell force, so I might actually be going to break them open once all planned annual progress is done (see blog sidebar).
But there is more. Years ago, when a store called The Lonely Mountain still existed in Antwerp and the Euro wasn`t even thought of (ECU anyone?) there always where those blister packs of a french game called Demonworld, that intrigued me. Couldn`t use them though in Warhammer (only miniature game I knew back then... so yeah, that long ago) so I never bought them.
Now however, Ral Partha Europe has re-released them and is expanding on them, so I`m starting to turn an eye in that direction again.
And it looks like a great scale to finally start assembling those historic AWI british I always wanted.
Apart from that, they have started actual 15mm sci-fi gaming over at TSA these days as I stated in the previous post, with the Tomorrow`s War rules, and if there is one market 15mm seems to offer a LOT of oddities in it`s that part.
But what are the pro and cons for myself to start doing this scale some more?
+ Storage: I can put more bases in my KR trays then with 28mm
+ Volume: You get on average 3 models for 1 model in 28mm so a force is bulked out faster
- Opponents: never saw te scale really played that much at my local club, whom consist mainly of 28+ gamers.
Decisions decisions... buying!
