(About a year ago I decided to go down the 15mm route. Partly this was because of my disillusionment with GW who I had been a staunch fan of for years but mostly because everything about 15mm is so cool. For starters you can get a lot of model for your money and the scale is still big enough for you to be able to paint sensibly. Secondly, there are so many different manufacturers out there offering such a wide range of models that you're really only limited by your imagination. But lastly there is a really strong community around it with lots of like minded people who love to share their passion and knowledge for it. This is something I personally feel has been lost from the more mainstream wargaming and was one of the things that got my doing it in the first place.)
It's interesting reading some of these old ones back and seeing how things change. For starters I've grown a set since then and realised that my boo hiss views views of GW were a bit childish really. They're a business and they do what they've gotta do. Plus they still make awesome miniatures and I've even started working on some GW stuff again just because its fun.
Anyway moving back to 15mm. I've been sorting through some of my lead pile and have come across allsorts.
Primarily these awesome models from Brigade models which I had originally intended for some sci-fi funkiness.
Gear Krieg is a weird world war 2 game in 15mm which has always appealled to me but it's never progressed further than that really. Anyway these Brigade minis seemed like the perfect fit to me 'Nazi armoured suits'!! Painted up properly they would be ace. Now here is the prototype all painted up ready. Im trying out some different bases as techniques which I've borrowed form the awesome SpaceJacker over at Tiny Solitary Soldiers
