We are putting together a list of wargames companies on TWW.
You will be able to search across two fields; ‘scale’ and ‘period’.
For the purpose of the listing, scale will be things like 6mm, 15mm, 25mm, rules etc.
Period will be things like modern, ACW, fantasy, WWII, and non-scale specific things like paints, dice etc.
I appreciate that 6mm is not a scale, but a size, however it is a safe bet to assume that everyone will understand what is meant by scale.
The results display live as you type into the search box, so if you start typing ‘6mm’ you will see some results that would include Angel Barracks, Baccus, Irregular Miniatures, Plasmablast Games, Leven Miniatures, etc.
If you then add ‘sci-fi’ to the query then you will lose Leven and Baccus from the list leaving only the 6mm sci-fi companies.
Pretty simple and pretty basic, but if simple works…
So, here is the thing.
If you run/own a wargames company please e-mail me your details.
I need business name, website URL and the scales and genres you do by line, so something like this:
Bob’s Figures and Stuff
Don’t be too specific with your periods, Romans may not be found if people search ancients, rioters won’t be found if people search modern, etc, please try and use a term that encompasses the period rather than the actual range.
Please also share this post, the more people that know, the quicker the database will be built and the better a resource it will be.29/12/2014 at 16:44 #14544kyoteblueParticipant
Great idea !!!30/12/2014 at 21:10 #14613CerdicParticipant
Trying to define genres/periods is a nightmare though! When I was compiling my Directory of 28mm manufacturers this was the hardest part. I eventually settled on a few fairly broad periods, as can be seen here…..31/12/2014 at 10:32 #1465902/01/2015 at 19:14 #14808Rick InhoffParticipant
