I'm actually with this Jason guy who will appear again in 2020 which is a pity because he speaks his mind.
So i would also delete the 47 range as it is neither here or there, its not ww2 and not close to being called modern a mickey mouse range.
To help out in some way to people already collecting the above range (i'm not heartless) i would send then to an "Adjustment Program" to wipe away all memories of said range ever existing.
But as for WW1 the only way i see it ever working would be in 10mm scale because you could put more detail into infantry and cav as this would be the prominent pieces on the table.
Also the armored vehicles would look cool in that scale.... like rolling beasts going over trenches and the firing ranges which would be much shorter then WW2 would allow a game being played on 4x4 table.
And finally biplanes would look nice in this scale.

Well Gents... as always that's my 2 cents worth.

There's already good WW1 cover in 10mm and of course that crosses into Railway N Gauge and 1/144 scale where aircraft cover is very good. There's also a great existing range of 10mm dinosaurs so you can have even more fun!

[quote="Fireball"]I did make the same suggestion few months ago but unlike this post it was not well received
I guess its not the subject but the author.
As to ww1 it would be better in 10mm like napleonics as its mostly infantry with armoured vehicles and field guns sprinkled in

FB[/quote]

I suggested WW1 years before so that the anniversary dates could be hyped - Cambrai 1917 being the first large use of tanks, for example, and the 1918 Armistice anniversary. Nada. Nothing. No one cared.

Aircraft in this scale would be brilliant. 6mm not 10mm.

I know there are other ranges but no one GHQed WW1 yet, no one made it to the standards of GHQ.
And Cama maybe they (GHQ) will go with the ww1 range and we can have our biplanes in 10mm?
So stand fast and don't quit

I suppose a WW I line would compel me to build a heavy and a light IS tank battalion. The post-war NO 8 would be fun, too. Might as well cover the interest period, which might lead to interesting war games.

I see you warming to the idea Panzegator.
I had a look at the old internet and to my surprise there are tons of tanks and armoured vehicles some really weird looking in a good way,
You have the:
Bussing A5P german car
Putilov-Garford russian armoured car
and you should really check out the canadian armoured autocar, its actually called an infantry support vehicle Very Happy
And that's just armoured cars
But it has to be in 10mm or i'm not biting, the models would be maybe 1/3 bigger then the modern vehicles and GHQ could sell them 2 per pack.

I see Panzergator warming to the idea of playing games. I assume his account has been hacked! At this rate the impostor will be talking of imaginations and other blasphemies.

Fireball,

You are right. There is a surprising variety of armor for WWI. All the more interesting for the lack of familiarity...

You will not see me gaming. Don't have the patience and my mind is not agile enough to work the rules. But I see nice additions to the collection, if I live that long and the Social Security holds.

That's lt exactly. we all know the look of panthers. tigers, t-34 inside out but to me this is all new, its like discovering the hobby again.
Now only to convince GHQ.

The amount of cavalry action in WW1 is also surprising; the action of the Canadian Cavalry Brigade at Moreuil Wood on 30 March 1918 is said to have stopped the German Spring Offensive.

Equally impressive was the charge of the Fort Garry Horse at Cambrai in 1917 - it has been described as the most successful charge during the trench warfare period and resulted in the awarding of the Victoria Cross to Lt. Harcus Strachan.

That's why we need the range in 10mm to do justice to units like cavalry and infantry Cama, you know like the pointy german helmets and such.

I must admit the only reason I'd want it in 6mm is to make it consistent with my other figures and extend my armies which are (almost) 1941-present all the way back to WWI with some nice interwar vehicles perchance for what if scenarios.

Can't use anything that isn't 1/285. Can't support any other scale.

I would still prefer 10mm but you both might be right in the sense that if GHQ ever decided to do this range it would be in 285 or 6mm because this is the scale they do best and have everything geared up towards this scale.
In any case it would be great in whatever scale.
See what i did here "great" as in great war
Very Happy
