Really nice work.  I am tossing up on 6mm or 10mm for GWSH, and had all but decided to go down the Baccus route, and now you have me rethinking...

Thanks  :)

Go with 10mm it's great!!!

More usefully - some (many) years back when I was looking at small scale figures I was trying to decide between 6mm and 10mm and 15mm, and the main reason I went with 10mm was that the infantry and big enough to see and spot what weapons they have, and that the tanks aren't so huge that they take up loads of space on the table.

Having subsequently played with a mates 6mm collection I'm sure I made the right decision. Because while the 6mm tanks are lovely detailed models, the infantry aren't. They really do get lost in their bases.

The Pendraken WWI range is pretty wide, covering most theatres, and it has  lots of depth for the main protagonists.

A bit of thread necromancy here.  ;) Excellent work with those figures and models, Fred. My interest in the Great War revived recently and I'm undecided between Pendraken 10mm or Peter Pig 15mm. Having seen the photos in your posts, they have me leaning toward Pendraken.

Glad that the pictures tipped you in the direction of 10mm - its a great scale, especially when you have infantry, cavalry and tanks on the same battlefield.

I like 15mm infantry but the vehicles start to get large.

I do really need to get on with more stuff for these forces.

I can share this captured Mk IV which I did a while ago, but forgot to post

Those are nice, I like the effect of the torn up earth you've created.

I have Pendraken ECW armies, and like 'em just fine. 10mm would be a manageable scale for Great War gaming on my part as well. Costs and space considerations mean it'll take less cost and less space than 15mm and up.

Thanks - I've gone heavy on the mud. I do struggle a bit seeing late war WWI games were there is lots of grass.

Skoda 30.5cm Morser M11

This is a great model from Pendraken - only got as far as assembling it so far. Don't exactly need it, but one of the best things about 10mm is being able to get really big guns!

Wow!  :o Yes, those are nice.

I've been browsing the Pendraken catalogue in between house-hunting trips with my wife, and found myself wondering about the feasibility of getting 60 pounders and 105mm howitzers on the table.  ;)

Grass and equivalent was the norm in 1918, even when the fighting took place across the mid-war battlefields like the Somme.

By 'equivalent' I am referring to the chest-high fields of wheat in the 2nd Battle of Soissons for example. In other words, terrain that is not necessarily grass but is not mud.

Very nice indeed.  If I hadn't already "invested" in 15mm I would consider Pendraken's 10mm.
