15mm Tanks - Germans and Russians

Hi All, Just wanting to show off some 15mm tanks I completed for a game of What a Tanker! I intended to play in 28mm scale but my play area wasn't big enough. I must say there is something very satisfying about 15mm scale, particularly the vehicles. https://curiajulia.blogspot.com/2020/01/15mm-tanks...

Re: 15mm measurement

Thanks for the reply - I was just concerned as I have 28mm tanks which I hear were too big for a 4ft x 4ft area. So when I saw that you all play 15mm with no change to the measurement distances I was concerned that 4ft x 4ft still would not be big enough for 2-4 tanks.

Re: 15mm measurement

I am going from 28mm to 15mm as I have a 4 x 4 play area. Do you recommend that I still do not chance the distances?

Re: Making simple culverts

Looks great. Are the resin water effects that hard to use? I have never tried and the only people who have seem to have an artistic confidence that alludes me.

Re: Taking the Italians for a spin in Chain of Command

The Italians are great, using the original list they are a big clunking fist. I played a solo game with my Italians recently ( https://toofatlardies.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=12614 ) and changed the MMG's to automatic rifles (changing the points costs) - I think this small change gives a much...

Re: World War 2 Italian Terrain

Thanks Doug - I will try and get some better pictures in the new year. I use a couple of citadel dry paints (Sylvaneth Bark and Eldar Flesh) that I use to get a dusty effect. It's a bit subtle on the Sherman but you could definitely use more to make it more dusty or you could combine it with some mu...
