Hello all,
Over a year ago I decided to launch a Cold War/Modern 15mm project. I just love the current suite of military vehicles. I am sure this related to me being a kid during the eighties. Over the last year or two, I have purchased, assembled, but not painted, a large mortar pool of 15mm modern vehicles.

I recall that finding quality pictures of the models was difficult. I often found myself depending on reviews and post from other gamers. The information posted by other gamers was very useful and I wanted to return the favor by sharing pictures of these miniatures.

Over the next week I will post on separate threads, images of the unpainted miniatures of 34 15mm vehicles. My hope is to use this thread to link to those other individual threads. I did not think it was wise to post 140 pictures in one location. I hope other modern gamers will find this a useful visual library.

The manufactures represented are Skytrex/OldGlory, QRF, and Irishserb. I also had additional miniatures from Quality Castings and even more vehicles from the manufactures shown. So you can ask questions about QRF's T-72s, M113s, M109s, and Skytrex's T-72s.

Thanks

You should have done this to start instead of Spamming the board. Sorry to complain, but really.

Louie N Supporting Member of TMP13 Aug 2012 1:15 p.m. PST

I apologize.

In my excitement I didn't think the mechanics through completely. It was not my intent to spam and I didn't realize what the consequence until John pointed it out.

I will space out the remaining post over several days, with no more than one a day.

Thank you

I know I over-advertise a little occasionally, but this was nothing to do with me. :-)

I think Louie's links only work about because they are lissted already, otherwise he couldn't post this one to link back to them so doing this to start with wouldn't work.

Sorry Geoff, but I surrender:

It reaaly has nothing to do with me (other than making all the nice toys)

Well, we are very happy for that.

As long as you are producing nice stuff, and making it available for sale, I say SPAM on, since that's what I come here for, e.g. to see and learn about new miniatures, and/or older ranges that I may be interested in.

Very happy to see clear photos of these, from all of the various angles.

Thanks for the photos, Louie.

Have you considered a blog to track your project's progress?

Also, would you consider some sort of scale in your pictures- either a common object or a ruler or lined cutting board etc?

Nice work!

I am just checking to see if the coast is clear. It looks like things have quieted down. Well if that is the case back to the miniatures.

Tonight I will post the next review, and the only one for today. It will feature the Skytrex/Old Glory Challenger I tank and Warrior IFV.

Just as a note, I am not associated nor have I ever met anyone from QRF, Irishserb, or Skytrex.

When you are in the market for 15mm modern vehicles between 1980-2000 you will be focused on those companies.

Also if anyone has a particular request for a comparison shot or for measurements, please feel free to ask. I might not be able to get to it quickly, but I will try to make it happen.

Excellent thread.

Louie, you did ABSOLUTELY nothing wrong. Thank you very much for your informative posts. The funny thing is that I don't recall the head moaners ever producing posts even half as informative or useful as yours.

Separate posts also make it FAR easier to find later for reference.

The f-wits moaning about/to you can frankly shove it where the sun doesn't shine. And I'm not talking about Fishguard.
