Cold War era manufacturers in 3mm
« on: February 08, 2017, 02:53:27 AM »
I only know of two - Picoarmor and Tumbling Dice.

Anyone know of other 3mm manufacturers for post WW2 Aircraft, AFVs, Infantry, and naval units?

Thanks in Advance.

If you're willing to go to 1/700 there's a bit with Trumpter in naval aircraft, etc.

Only if it doesn't exist in 1/600th, then acceptable.

Did a more in-depth search - apart from O8/Picoarmor and Tumbling Dice there's maybe Magister Militum (but site is currently down so hard to check what is available).

Magister Militum have the O8 range.

You may want to look at Irregular Miniatures' range listed as 2mm. I had some of their WW2 stuff a long time ago and it is probably best described as "impressionist" rather than "precise", but each to his/her/its own:

My  smaller scale Cold War stuff is all Irregular 2mm, some the sculpts are very nice indeed (Chieftain,  BMP,)  and some are just sort of generic (trucks and jeeps).  They are all a fair bit smaller than 3mm though,  with some curious gaps in the ranges.  It takes quite a while to file down an Sdkfz  222 so it looks like a BRDM,  but it is fairly quick to cut down a Warrior into a Scimitar.

I'm happy enough with them though,  they multiple base up fine  and tbh from 2 feet away they are all only tiny green blobs anyway.

Oddzial Osmy = O8. But yes, that's another source.
