What factions does everyone have?
« on: December 31, 2016, 12:10:30 AM »
I'm almost done with a full 100pt. West German army. Anyone else have a full force?

I have a 100 point Soviet Tank force, Scott McLaughlin has US Armour, and Pete Howard is also working on US Tanks.  But just to clarify, we play in 6mm using mostly GHQ mini's.
Look! We're not worried about the German army, we've got enough troubles of our own. To the right General Patton, to the left the British Army, to the rear our own goddamn artillery, and besides all that it's raining.

I have 100pts American in 6mm. I also have about 50 pts each American and Soviet in 15mm.

I probably have well over 100pts worth of Soviets (6mm). If I proxy my T-80s in for more T-72s I can probably hit 200. I have very little experience playing, though.

How much does a 100 point 6mm Team Yankee army cost approximately? I'd be interested to try the game out and I've been eyeing the "Iron Maiden" book. Nobody else is playing Brits?

I think, most of the 6mm players buy from GHQ.  http://www.ghqmodels.com/store/modern-micro-armour-united-kingdom.html

you get 5 vehicles in a pack for 11.95, or about 50 infantry, or a single aircraft.  I paid a bit more because Soviet forces get more for less points, but for Brits, I'd think you would probably could get everything you need for around $100.00

1/300 has several manufacturers, too. Most are a bit less detailed (and obviously a little bit smaller) but cheaper than GHQ. One example is C&C minis (http://www.pfc-cinc.com/page/page/295095.htm). I find their tanks a little meh (and the tank barrels very droopy/bendy) but their support vehicles (recon, Missile cars, BMPs, Arty, Air, etc.) quite good. And I could buy them by 3s and not 5s like GHQ.

Scotia, Grendel, and Heroics & Ros are others that I know of but do not have any personal experience with.

Jamie struck and I are diving into 6mm Team Yankee, he’s going Soviet while I’m investing in Marines!

A mess of Soviets is about right.  Now you can enjoy my pain
