Re: 15mm measurement

We always have used 1/72, it works well with the rules as is. 15mm will work as well, I am sure! :)

Re: Anti tank guns anyone?

I just downloaded the mag, the rules are much more detailed than the ones I worked out, and share many of the ideas I had!

The magazine is well worth a look at...Go Buy! :)
