3mm, World War 2

Adventures in 3mm

I recently got some 3mm WW2 figures to try out on a bit of an impulse. I wanted to do some jungle-type bases in a similar style to my 6mm WW2 Eastern Front bases. While I had done some such bases in 15mm, this really only amounted to putting a load of foliage on the… Continue reading Adventures in 3mm

Company level WW2 got a bit of a boost at… Continue reading Bush-ido. Making jungle bases for 15mm WW2 Japanese

So, after a few weeks, we finally got around to trying it out. The action was a pretty straightforward one, basically being the usual unimaginative 'meeting… Continue reading Boshin War with Combat Patrol
