With all the new lines of larger 15mm figures coming out has anyone considered using those guns for 20mm Plastic/ 1/72nd scale figures? Specifically looking for ACW guns or Napoleonic use.

That James is probably part of their evil conspiracy plan.

If it works for you,then do it.If you asked me to sit down to a game using your stuff,I wouldnt care a bit if the guns arent exact.I'm more interested in having fun than anything else.

They would be too small. Most plastics are 22-25mm not 18mm.

There is a noticeable difference between the plastic 1/72 scale stuff and the 15/18mm metal guns.

Unless you're scrounging Irregular's Really Useful Guns (scaled about 1/87, so a bit big for 1/100 minis (15mm), a bit small for 1/76 minis (20mm)).

some of the older airfix models are on the smaller side, but most others are indeed larger.

Size apart. Kinda expensive; currently £2.50 GBP for an Essex 15mm crewless 12pdr as opposed to £4.42 GBP for the HaT Wurttembergers with four pretty decent guns and crew.
