Hello, 15mm gamers!
« on: June 20, 2019, 06:40:17 AM »
Hello, fellow Lead-Adventurers!
How do they say? "I'm a long time reader, but a first time writer."
I just wanted to say hi and show some of my stuff. Having played tabletop and miniature board games since the mid 90s, I had quite a normal wargamer career until early 2018, when I decided to sell all my old stuff and to begin anew in 15mm scale. Since then I finished lots of projects that I allready started but couldn't bring to an end in 28mm. 15mm was the solution for all my space and time problems and I'm more than happy with my choice. Here's some impressions from my blog:

Until next time and thank you for all the good inspiration I drew from this forum!

Hi, Skullhamma!

I've been following your blog for a while, it's very interesting! I do enjoy it spanning fantasy, modern, zombie and sci-fi. Excellent stuff!

Wish I was brave enough to sell off the 28mm mob and just start all over again at 15mm. I've been flirting with the idea for years but can't ever seem to pull the trigger. Your pics make it mighty tempting though. That first one with the greenskins is magic, looks like it could be 25-28mm.

Nice looking tables and figures  :'(

I went the other way selling my 15mm and moving to 28mm. A mate persuaded me to do Dark Ages in 28mm to start with. Once I started painting them I got so used to the scale and them being so much easier to paint with age affecting my eye sight I sold off the 15mm.

The trick with 28s is not to have too many projects. Horses for courses though. 28s are best for Bolt Action and skirmish games but 15mm is better for large battles unless you have a lot of space and time for painting IMHO.

Current and forecast unpainted leadpile - 526 figures. Painted 2020 - 0

Welcome.  I'm a guy who began with a focus on 15mm military and historical figures, but about 15 years ago I decided to divide my time between 15mm military and 28mm Pulp/Adventure/Victorian/Space etc.  Doing both has work well for me.  Again welcome.
