    I like the preview from MOM Miniatures and the new minis for Frostgave are really characterful… but… Skullduggery Press… will you stop with turning out these 15mm previews that look totally, utterly amazing. It’s 15mm for flip sake! That level of character and detail is insane.

    • finbikkifin

      After a great deal of back and forth and soul-searching, I eventually decided that 28mm was the scale for me, for both skirmishes and larger games (with only occasional journeys into 3mm and 10mm for certain kinds of mass combat).

      There are many 15mm lines that make this a hard decision to uphold.

      North Star are still doing amazing stuff with Frostgrave miniatures. If there’s ever a second edition, I half expect them to come out with a new line of Wizards & Apprentices for all the magic schools, and I’ll probably want them all.

      • euansmith

        I’ve spoken to people who do 10mm modern skirmish games, as this allows for almost realistic ranges for weapons.

        • finbikkifin

          I’ve done skirmishes in 6mm too, it’s great fun in no space at all. Haven’t quite got around to it in 3mm. As far as realistic ranges go, eh, ground scales and figure scales are always decoupled. Some skirmish rulesets I’ve played just don’t use weapon ranges outside of thrown weapons, just LOS.

          For modern/WW2 skirmishes I’d pick 15mm over 10mm any day just due to the available miniatures, although Pendraken do some great stuff. They do VBCW, too.

          I just really like 28mm, especially after a few years of fiddling with terrain styles and finding out what sorts of detail and abstraction I like.
