Re: Culture Shock

Sorry to disagree, but the model on the left (the larger one, yes?) looks perfectly adequate for this scale. It may not be completely accurate size-wise, but to my mind it does capture the look of the weapon when deployed. Provided the distortion has no implications for the rules you use I can't see...

Re: "Battle" rules CarlL seeking help with SV & DV

Re: Any other Modern gamers ?

Yes, the odd game here and there. Our recent club games in 1:300 have included Japanese fighting off a modern Russian Naval landing, and an untimely scuffle between the Iranian and Iraqi forces. I also play 15mm AK-47 (where the game sometimes get uncomfortably close to reality). In previous years w...
