Re: Starting in 6mm (WW2)

Finished off the first batch of 6mm British troops. Completely forgot to order PIATs from Baccus so will be visiting them again soon! Four platoons, with 2in mortars (no PIATs yet) and Five Big men. https://nottherivercottage.blogspot.com/2019/09/6mm-part-2.html https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-VynM4U9nuv...

Re: Starting in 6mm (WW2)

The Baccus vehicles are a bit of a question mark for me, I'm not sure about committing to them and then having to wait for the variety to improve. I'm thinking I'll just go with GHQ vehicles, saves the wait.
2D6 stuff looks good but again - depends how quickly the range fills out.

Re: Starting in 6mm (WW2)

Thank you! I've got a few samples of napoleonics from Baccus so may well mix in some Adler cavalry, I've heard the Adler Cavalry is rather good!

Thanks for pointing out the 2D6 site - one to watch as the range expands!

Starting in 6mm (WW2)

Having been swayed (indirectly!) by various online personalities I have decided to plunge into 6mm IABSM. Got the first batch of troops from Baccus a wee while ago and finally got some time to start working on them. Still a work in progress, but so far they are nowhere near as tricky as I first imag...

Re: CoC 28mm Panzer IV

Lovely work, as always, and an even better introduction to the work! Gave me a chuckle on a tired Wednesday morning. Me being tired rather than the morning itself.

Re: Modern COC

In the 2014 Summer Special there is an article on "Big CoC in Africa" which I believe covers more modern equipment and could fit quite well with your cold war period. It may well need some tweaking to get exactly what you are looking for but is probably worth a look. They got all their info on rules...

Re: Advice on making 15mm ww2 scenery

Hello Dave, Not strictly any help on how to build for 15mm but I found this article quite useful for getting some ideas of suppliers. https://themodelwarrior.wordpress.com/2015/07/07/15mm-ww2-terrain-review/ there are also some tutorials on various builds. Also a few good posts here: https://dereksw...

Re: (CoC) 5 Platoon: Breaking Through to Frost at Arnhem (Updated 20 May 19)

Nice write up - I really felt for your Pak throwing shots at the jeep to no effect! On a side note from your overhead shots at the start it looked like the paras got a JOP further up on their left (in the wooded area) than looks possible from the triangle generated from what appear to be the closest...
