Picture from Partizan

A picture of the toys at Partizan yesterday.   Never have time to actualy play as we get the Vistors to have a little play or end up chatting on any thing from DBM to3D printing.  The questions are getting much more informed nowdays.  Can't get the image to post up.

Some interesting terrain, to 1:144 scale?

Just to show my ignorance, what's the Russian vehicle with the dozer blade and other engineering tools?

The Russian engineering vehicle is an IMR 2.  All the stuff is 1/144 sometimes, called 12mm and even 10 mm.   We use the term 1/144 as the models are as exact as possible this scale.  Most are AOTRS Shipyards on Shapeways.  Basic terrain is Hexon 2 and the buildings are Maneouver Group, print your own images.     The IMR 2 was commissioned by Maneouver  Group (me and Paul).  Slip shipyards £50 and he will do a vehicle image for you provided he can sell it in his shop.  It's the only way to get some vehicles that are not really commercially viable.

OK, thanks. I've always thought of 10mm as 1:200 (that's the scale of my Skytrex WW2 stuff) and 12mm as being around 1:144, but some models do seem to 'creep' in size.

Re: Picture from Partizan

Lots of 10 mm figures turned out to be 12 mm tall so some lines now seem to have "become" 12mm.  We stick rigidly to 1/144 as we expect some creep when 12mm figures become nearer 15mm :-).  For us 1/144 is perfect.  6 mm is too small to effectively do small vehicles with move able weapons and 15mm to close to plastic 1/72 to offer significant gains in terms of groundscale.   1/72 and up is really for folk who spend more time building and painting than playing.
