Victrix 13mm & 1/144th figures and models

Has anyone bought any of these ? I’m thinking specifically of ‘O’ group. They look beautiful models but my painting talent falls far short of those shown in the mail shots. For a size comparison I have some Heritage Napoleonics and old strip mini.figs and although sold as 15mm figures they appear mu...

Re: Battalion level WW2 Now called "O" Group or the story of "Oooooh"

It does help. Many thanks Dave. I have to buy a smaller property which is going to limit me to a smaller game table. Probably 6x4.
As long as I don’t have to put my figures on half pay 😕

Re: Battalion level WW2 Now called "O" Group or the story of "Oooooh"

The problem older wargamers face is that many modern rules say base size doesn’t matter, but it does. If you have a ground scale of 1 : 1000 there are guide lines in tactical manuals that lay down how much frontage tactical units should occupy, so that when a General tells his brigadiers that he wan...

Re: Battalion level WW2 Now called "O" Group or the story of "Oooooh"

O group seems to be what I’ve been looking for. Just a few questions. The table you are using with Richard :- A). What size is the table ? B). What scale are the figures, tanks and buildings.? C). Compared to Flames of war are there more figures in a battalion ? How does it compare in detail of the ...

Re: 1/300 Scale Ships

Isn’t it a pity that the warlord games black seas ships are 1/700th. I have Prussian, Austrian and French armies in 10mm Pendraken and a good number of books on WAS. I just like the larger cuffs and turn backs. As with all wargaming the cost of accessories is often prohibitive in the larger scales (...

Re: Battalion level WW2 Now called "O" Group or the story of "Oooooh"

There’ a good range of armour in 10mm (Pendraken), but anyone with IABSM in 15mm then from the look of it a section would be a platoon so in effect a company would become a battalion. However some of the bases wouldn’t be present because they are organic to the rifle platoons so it appears, no Bren ...

Re: French Bicorne Styles?

I’m not sure if the French infantry wore the large plumes on campaign. As I use the British army for gaming, but the French that I’ve faced across the table have been the parade ground uniform with bearskins for the grenadier companies, the voltigeurs with long floppy plumes and even plumes for the ...

Re: Corps Blimey

Thanks ArchDuke I was hoping it would be a corp level game for IABSM with multi players & PBEM, but given the changes in coms. software it could easily don with a staff player sending orders to a corps player who ...... ad so on until Odets were allocated to the Lt. Col. commanding his battalion who...
