WFB 2nd or 3rd ed/P&S using 10mm figs
« on: February 26, 2016, 01:19:37 PM »
Hi Peeps,

i know i'm not re-inventing the wheel but thought i'd share.

I'm basing up my 10mm figs for Warhammer 2nd or 3rd ed, and also Pike and Shotte. all on magnetic sheet, steel 20mm x 40mm bases.
I tried this with 8th ed WFB.  basically it was no fun (3 books required, too much cross referencing)  tried to teach my "Historical biased" mate, hard task, lots of befuddled stares.  looked at 9th for a bit = more of the same.

so I have 2nd and 3rd ed WFB, probably going to go with one, the other or a mix of both.  I really like
a dice per man and the weapon being meaningful. 
 
using 1/2 ground scale.  we are using cm instead of inches, WYSIWYG, and markers to signify
special weapon upgrades etc that can't be shown on the model, and command where not included in with the models (bofa) 

 in 10mm a unit of 48 haliberdiers or 12 Reiksguard Knights isn't so daunting from a cost, painting or storage point of view. 

to make sense of  using 4cm by 2cm Warmaster sized bases with troops varying from 8 to 14 a base, 4 to 7 men frontage, i have made up base converters (initially in card-> moving to steel in the future ) so that the frontage of say 5 men is 5cm, and 7 men (bofa) is 7cm.  this isn't beautiful but workable. cav are on 12.5 per model frontage base converters. so an ogre will be on a 2cm square base. 

so far we have had a few games in 8th ed,  Empire v High Elves with troops, magic and cav. its works quite well.  friendliness is required with the scale conversion!  Artillery, light cav, skirmishers, Monsters to be added as we go. then Orks and Chaos :0)  going to try 2nd or 3rd ed soon.

i'm steadily collecting up 10mm proxies for every WFB army list and option, including the  WFB extinct list entries, as far as i'm concerned if it existed once in WFB, it still does  ( Empire War Waggon)   (C Dwarf centaur mangler pushing dudes)  Halflings...  scratch builds where needed.

lead mountain includes:
 Eureka chaos dwarf army , Chaos Evil Men kickstarter,   Pendraken League of Augsburg (P&S), orcs, tomb kings, vampire counts, high elves, wood elves, dow, empire, ogre kingdoms, some lizardmen...

warmaster Knights on 12.5 by 25mm bases, magnetised to a 50mm steel paper base, with pick up stick.  makes me happy, for 10mm WFB or Warmster games

BoFA Wood elf spear, on 70mm base converter. to keep the 10mm per fig frontage, not pretty but it works.
