Hi All

Have been away from the hobby for a long while and now thinking of coming back into a smaller scale (previously only played/painted 28mm).

Primarily interested in modern to future skirmish/battles.

I can see there are lots of WW2 and modern plastic sets in 1:72 scale (20mm?) and there seems to be a tremendous amount of 15mm (are these 1:100?) modern and scifi.

I am inclined to go for the plastic 20mm but there seems to be more variety in terms of scifi, zombies etc to be found in 15mm (am i wrong about this?).

With 28mm figures you can get quite a lot of off the shelf alternative heads for conversions, are there any similar products available for 20 or 15mm figures?

Any comments, feedback or links you can provide would be awesome.

Hello "thirsty man",

15mm Peter Pig Range has alternative heads in their range. Available in the UK, US, and Australia.
I have purchased their range (Vietnam and AK), and had no worries with them.
Happy New Year

Thanks Allan. Happy new year to you too.

Just realised there was a previous and similar thread…

…with links for Peter Pig, GZG and Astro Miniatures, who i have not heard of before.

I guess the question is, are there any other alternative heads available at this scale and is anything similar available for 20mm or can the same heads be used for 20mm plastics too?

I love the look of the GZG heads, and its a shame that there are not pictures of all the Peter Pig head sprues on the site as would like to check out the wolf and lizard head sprues.

The heads on 15mm metal and 20mm traditional plastic figures are about the same sort of size

Of course it is best to 'try before you buy' …
