Re: 15mm basing advice for Uk Coins + other stuff

Thanks for all the info :) In that Open Fire Box set you sure get a lot of tanks! I am still working through exactly what I am going to buy - I keep wanting to bring the cost down, but find myself adding more shiny things! On a seperate note, I noticed that there are three different types of panzerf...

Re: 15mm basing advice for Uk Coins + other stuff

Thanks again seret. Anyone know if any retailers in the UK do good deals on FOW and Plastic Soldier Company stuff (I presume to buy Peter Pig you have to do it direct off them)? Any discount coupons available at the moment etc? Also, I am planning on going to Salute for the first time. Do you get go...

Re: 15mm basing advice for Uk Coins + other stuff

Thanks again Seret :D What you say about forces makes sense. What I might do is limit myself to rounding out my US and just going for some standard Germans and some regular Brits, and ignore the elite units for now. At least that cuts down on my costs slightly. If i do that how many tanks do you rec...

Re: 15mm basing advice for Uk Coins + other stuff

Thanks Seret. At the moment I am planning on gaming in Normandy. I already have an old FOW US rifle platoon, to which I just need to add some BAR and Bazooka figures. I really want to do some Brits though, so I am aiming on buying some Brit Airborne and, maybe, some standard Brits (The Plastic Soldi...

Re: 15mm basing advice for Uk Coins + other stuff

Thanks John for the tip about those bases. The minibits bases look ideal, and the different shapes will help as well. I also like your idea for using figures with panzerfausts and then swapping them over when the panzerfaust has been used. I will have to see if this works in 15mm. I also updated the...

Re: 15mm basing advice for Uk Coins + other stuff

Thanks for all the replies. I have been going through the various manufacturers and trying to figure out what I should buy, with costs mounting steadily! Once I have a first list worked out I hope to run it by you guys to see if I have missed anything important or have too much of something etc. A f...

Looking through Peter Pig site, I cannot find any sniper figures - what do you use for snipers? Also, what base size?

Re: 15mm basing advice for Uk Coins + other stuff

Thank you Derek for the quick reply. I really appreciate it. I have just had a look at your site - some beautiful stuff! I was looking at your rebased paras - i presume, but want to check, that you were using 5p for the soldiers and 1p for the leaders, with the squad support weapons on 2p, as you st...

15mm basing advice for Uk Coins + other stuff

I am just about to go and buy some 15mm minis to have a go at CoC. I am going for 15mm mainly because of the cost, as I will be buying all the forces myself and also want to buy some buildings etc. Doing all this in 15mm is so much cheaper and quicker to paint up! Part of me just wants to say to hel...
