    @Mr. Average

    But that makes perfect sense.

    I tried so hard not to mention weapon range. So many games uses 6″ move, 24″ standard weapon range…

     

    @Not Connard Sage

    I agree, embrace the fudge.

    I have my own issue with actual ground scale and using ‘meters’. I can’t imagine a unit of infantry or vehicle always being able to move at a specific speed every time through each type of terrain. Friction, command and control and all that made me move away from using any measurements at all. I like Crossfire’s solution or a few other games where I simply nominate a terrain feature and do a check to see if they made it there without interruption. I don’t care if my miniature troops get there by crawling, walking or running, I only need to know if they got shot along the way.

    Yep, the rules were all skirmish rules. I get the table size argument, but most of these rules gave the table size for 28mm but not a recommended size for 15mm, only offering change in measuring unit. Its weird to me with 15mm being over half the size of 28mm but ‘cm’ is recommended for it skewing the ground scale from 28mm even more. It could have been something as simple half all measurements which would give a closer approximatoin of the reduced size but no ‘cm’ was recommended. Maybe its for ease of maths, no need to half the numbers? But like I saw in the original post keeping all measurment units the same seems more representative.

    I was going to mention ASOBH measuring sticks, but wanted to keep it short.

    Yeah, weird that. Wargames is the only time I even use inche. Now you got me thinking about millimeters.

    “everyone she knows who plays these “wargames” never spends time with their family, and they take it to the “enth degree” and it all ends up bad.”

    I think this is going to be a self fulfilling prophecy. Making that kind of ultimatum will eventually means he’s going pursue the hobby in secret and spend less time with the family instead of the family engaging in it with him.

    Whoa, doesn’t look like foam at all I thought it was made from clay or even carved out of wood. Very nicely done.

    This looks very good. How did you make it? Is it heavy?

    Nice submarine. I like how you used several different shapes for it.

    I didn’t see many tracers from the bombers, almost thought they don’t shoot back. Nice damage on the last bomber though.

    I’m aways curious about TV shows about the other side when it came to Band of brothers and Masters of the Air, but I doube Spielberg adn Hank will ever do the German perspective.

    I’m intrigued at first by the campaign idea and maps, but then I spotted something incredible. Is that a 10mm chicken in Thule farm?

    Thanks, I like these little games more affordable and encourage conversion and scratch building.

    Thanks for the tip, Quest 2 is half the price and looks even more tempting.

    I got a new computer late last year for gaming, used it for less than a month so far. Not sure but I’m convince it should be able to handle VR.

    The thing about getting back into flight sims other that eh BR headset is all the controls and rudder pedels, although looks simple is crazy expensive.

    You vidoes are making VR very tempting. Seeing the price tag though saves me from a big spend so early in the year.

    Thanks for the explanation. Will check the free rules.

    A nice bunch of hits at around 8min. At first seeing the light white smoke trail I didn’t think it was much but the various reply shows quit a bit of damage.

    Did you find the canopy frame distracting at all? I keep focusing on all the nuts.

    Been hearing about this game on and off, any quick run down on how it play?

    Like that basilisk, the 4 eyes looks really good and set it apart from the usual monsters.

    Little Tiffany for a name?

    Cool, do you have the rules? I’m tempted to run a mini league.

    The only thing I can add is if you can find 6mm stl file of a figure, load it into the slicer along with the terrain, it’ll give a good idea of how the terrain will look next to minis. You can also offset the figure up by how many “mm” your base thickness is to get more accurate feel.

    If the 15mm is too thin you could could try scaling only the height to 60% while the horizontal dimensions could be larger to maintain wall thickness.
