After many years of wandering the wilderness of 28mm gaming, I am now finally back to where I started.
Well nearly ( Like many of us I started with the old Airfix 20mm stuff) but my first foray into metals was way back in the late 70's and in 15mm.
Many factors have contributed to this.
The main one is gaming space, since I moved house and lost my gaming cabin.
The loss of my 10 x 6 games table is one of the main reasons for down scaling.
My new games room with it's meagre 6 x 5 table cannot accommodate large 28mm gaming.
We tried it and it does not work.
We even reduced everything to 50% and it still did not look right or work.
So! all the 28mm stuff has gone.
The 15mm collection is steadily growing, most periods are now covered.
Although a mammoth re-basing schedule is proving to be difficult.
We have also now replaced all the terrain for 15mm and the table is looking better already.
Here are a few pics from last Thursdays Naps game.
Andy's Russians vs My French and Bavarians.
Big game, so we could see how things look and test the water.
It looked great and played brilliantly (Black Powder).

We have been using these to mark Casualties and Disorder.
We have been busy creating new ways to show this without the need to fill the table with Dice etc.
We now have Hex's with a casualty figure on and single figures for disorder.
Check out the last pic in the far right upper corner.
We are hoping to add these touch to all the periods we play.
It looks a lot better.
I'll pop a few pics of the markers on here in the near future.
