2mm Armies possible?

Post by kodiakblair »

I'd like to know if there would be any problems using my 2mm armies.

For the last few years I've been building quite large armies in this scale.
Think 1:2 or 1:4 figure ratios so 240 figures on a 60x15mm base would be a
cohort.

All my troops are based like this on 60mm wide bases from 4 elephants a base to
480 pikemen.

I don't mind some book keeping or counters to keep track of casualties and such
as I only play solo.

Hope to hear some feedback.

I've never thought of using 2mm armies, but there's no reason why it shouldn't work. We don't usually use casualty removal; we use micro-dice to record 'casualties' instead, so that shouldn't be an issue.

I hope this helps,
Phil

Thanks Phil I'd been thinking of getting those wee dice and dice stands from
Leo at Pendraken so this gives me an excuse.

I appreciate the quick reply and I'll get a copy of your rules pronto.

2mm is the way to go, well I'm kinda biased but as the years have pasted I just can't do the abstract any more.I put 300 Hun Light Horse on the table one day, this was in 6mm, but it just looked like a small raiding party.The illusion was worse with terrain, 5 trees a forest do not make.

Thanks again

Well that's the rules downloaded and a quick look at the army guide
reveals I've troops done for every army except the desert dwellers.

How handy is that.

Will have a read over the weekend Phil.

Back when Phil was developing the rules I did all my solo test games with 6mm with each unit represented by one base so there's no reason why 2mm figures wont work.
