Ten-mil, or not ten-mil..?


That is the question I've puzzled over since looking at the early war Western Desert CoC lists put out by the Too Fat Lardies. They have a number of vehicles and weapon options for 8th Army and DAK, both for the core force and support units. Given this diversity, I'm beginning to think it'll be easier and cheaper to go the 10mm route as more seems available in this size. 

I think I'll buy the CoC rules set and try a few games using my current VBCW 10mm figures. If they work I'll get a couple of platoons and supports for both sides.

Can't really help you out on this, but I would think smaller scale is more economical and in the event you don't like it, you haven't blown too much for the effort. Dean

True. I haven't got a whole lot of storage space, so a smaller scale will help.

10mm is perfect for WWII... 6mm are just board game counters (!), and 15mm are a tad too big for scale... my WWII Desert uses the Minifigs N range figures... superb range, competitively priced, and very nice sculpts....

Thanks for the heads-up, Steve. I'll look at Minifigs.
