    I expect they will be not too hard to find in 15mm since I have old bookmarks for such 😉 but actually rather would like to do this (and it’s alt-VSF-history aspects) in 6mm 🤔 or at least something smaller than 15mm.  Call it a quirk of mine.  🤓

     

    Does anyone make figures for the Spanish-American War (SAW) in sizes like in the title smaller than 15mm?  😎

    Or figures where minor GS changes would be feasible?  😕

    Nope. 15mm is the smallest. List of manufacturers can be found on the SAW Yahoo group:

    At a glance, the O8 Civil War line is pretty close to the mark at 3mm scale. I’m not terribly familiar with the Spanish-American War, though, so purists might be galled at the idea.

    Not without some modification which would be easier at 6mm, sigh.

    It would be the leggings that would be noticeable.

     

    I suspect that with more skill I might be able cut lines suggesting them but I am far too imprecise for that.

    Once you are down to 6mm and smaller then ‘paint conversions’ should work very well.   For example, you could try Heroics and Ros, who make very nicely proportioned small 6mm figures (I say ‘small’ because they are considerably smaller than Adler and Baccus).  Using a combination of their ACW, Colonial and WWI ranges I think you would be able to create everything you need. http://www.heroicsandros.co.uk/heroics/pdf/webcat.pdf

    Indeed, but one could join as there is a good deal of info on that group, and the moderator approves new members rather quickly. 🙂

    No, thank you.  I will just keep working on projects that I can achieve – painting what I have, following my planned buying spreadsheet, giving away stuff I no longer have interests in, and just keeping an eye out for projects like this that are doable in a scale/size I want to have in retirement.

    I hope your eyes hold up, Glenn. I still play with my 15mm figures, but I paint more of the 28s, and I’m selling off boardgames that I can no longer read the tiny print on the counters…

    You'll shoot your eye out, kid!

    I hire younger eyes for some things and I expect I personally paint to a simpler standard than many.  Other than a small amount of DK and RP dwarf/goblins for unit fill I never expect to by any figures over 18mm in size again.  Unless certain molds are remade I may run out of planned figures to buy by mid-2017.  And even if they are I will have 100% of my planned figures by the start of 2018.

    The only things I see as changing that would be 15/18mm Soldados de Cuera and Presidials plus Indios armed for the 1680 to 1840 period (no revolvers or winchesters.)

    And possibly 6mm SAW figures or 3mm “lace wars” figures but that seems unlikely in the near future.

    Are you aware of the Magister Militum 3mm range? It includes lace wars armies.
