Anyone do 20mm ACW???

Post by Admin Fella » Tue Oct 23, 2007 5:40 pm

I was wondeirng if anyone does 20mm ACW? I have these miniatures from SHQ and i think they are very nice. I am forming the opinion that 20mm might be better than 15mm, but 15mm seems much more established in this era.

Any thoughts?

20mm sure do! My favourite scale for ACW. If you are not aware of them, check out Musket Miniatures in USA. An extensive range of metal figures and a good range of resin buildings and the scale matches to 20mm plastics. The people there are excellent to deal with.

SHQ do ECW in 20mm. Same sort of proportions. I believe Simon grabbed some off me a while back. he may be able to show you them. Nice figures. They do Napoleonics, Crusades, Romans and few other odds and ends. All nice figures. :)

Good to know. I have 1/2 and army with the SHQ miniatures and they are nice. They are on the very long "to do" list i have. :)

Would the AB civil war figures stand up ok ? they seem to be pushing the upper scale of "15mm" they look more 18mm +

Our group has done 15mm for years now although we seem to be in a bit of a slump concentrating on WW1 and WW2 now almost exclusively.

I am an old Minifigs man from way back, probably just sloth on my part and my ultra conservative nature (and a hugh stockpile of unpainted lead dating back to before I was married and had money to spend on hobbies).

The figures look nice Cardinal but probably not shown to their best so close up (even at 20mm).

Hi
I assume you mean in metal as zillions of companies do ACW in 20mm in plastic from Airfix to Zvedza.

Cheers

We use 20mm plastics here. This is what I have so far, painted several years ago, really need to finish them off one day.

More a convenience thing here. Metals we need to send away for, plastics we can get from the LHS.

Fair enough mate.

I have had an urge for quite some time to do my own ACW figures. Might have to be a project for 2011.............
