Hi everyone. After a long pause from modelling, I took a decision. I decided to sell all my 28mm Bolt Action stuff and use my 6mm stuff instead. I like the Bolt Action but it’s too much time consuming to assemble and paint every soldier and vehicule.
So I ordered a wargame mat and I should receive it in a few weeks. During this time, I will try to build lot of trees, buildings, wall, roads, hills and rivers.
Getting the figure scale as close to the ground scale (for skirmish/1:1 ratios) is really helpful for gameplay by communicating to players a better picture of the action that is being modeled on the tabletop – especially for the ’empty battlefield’ of WW2, as well as allowing a better physical interaction between figures/terrain and the game’s distances (movement/firing).
The smaller scales hold up mainly due to their versatility. Modern casting and 3D printing and mastering have made them easy matches for quality to the larger scales, so with inflation being what it is, they’re holding their value very well for budget conscious gamers, like myself. And they also give you the chance to scale up very neatly, when you’re ready, so you can do large armies and battles very convincingly just as well as skirmishes.
