Re: Brother Against Brother 28mm Figure Sabots - WIP

Hey Stu, The circles aren't quite perfect, I tried a flange type drill and a hole saw both were too powerful for the styrene even though I ran the drill as slow as possible so I used my no name Dremel tool worked just fine. Also above thicknesses are wrong the base sheet is 0.5mm thick and the layer...

Re: Brother Against Brother 28mm Figure Sabots - WIP

Hi All, The sabots are done (even a test four figure one) now I just to make 50 more and to get the figures sorted. These figures I bought prepainted and I need to weather them a bit to dull them down and flock the bases to match the sabots. I do like they are mounted on washers it makes them very s...

Trees - 6mm Scale Games

Hi All, I picked up another batch of 6mm scale trees and these will all be based on 9cm square bases (toyed with hexagons!). This will help with setup time and tree movement when figures plough through woods. I can use my separately based trees to add shape to woods placing them around the multi bas...

Hey Dropbear, Thanks if you can let me know the size you use it would be great and a couple of pictures would be very helpful. I reckon I am taking advantage of the same slave labour in China As I have about 350 39mm trees which suit the 6mm figures perfectly and these small ones are super cheap! Ch...

Trees - 28mm Scale Games - pictures of my 'forest' added

Hi All,

Just preparing to set up a Brother Against Brother in 28mm scale skirmish (something different to 6mm Longstreet :D ) and just wondering what height others make/buy trees for this scale for a good look (in scale would be huge!)?

ACW Basing Options - Two Types Opinions Welcome

Hi All, Toying with rebasing some of my 6mm ACW troops below are the options I'm looking at, they'll be a mixture of 30mm x 30mm and 60mm x 30mm sized bases any opinions on which looks best would be welcome. They'll be used with several sets of rules. Option 1 http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e393/...

Hi Fanai, These figures looks great, especially the cavalry! Very well painted. Nothing better than masses of well painted 28mm figures. Makes my 28mm ACW and Napoleonic ones look lame. But 28mm is not my favoured wargaming scale except for skirmish games, figures look out of scale when placed for l...
