What scale tanks is best suited for TFL's quick and fun tank-versus-tank game "What a Tanker!" in your humble opinion?

Depends on the size of the area you wish to play and your budget.

If I were doing it, 15mm.

We play 28mm because so many already have 28mm tanks from playing Bolt Action and Chain of Command. The tanks are very impressive on the table.

However, 15mm looks great, too. And if your group is going to do the campaign tree where you're "leveling up" into a new tank, 15mm is a LOT more affordable.

I tried WaT in 10/12mm and it was just too small.

We use 20mm models. Works very nicely.

We play in 10mm 'cos we have 10mm tanks.

We use 20mm/ 1/72, as we have more of these than any other scale, I would happily play in other scales though!

I use 1/72. I had a go with 1/48 (28mm) as I had some tanks already but it looked too crowded on a 6x4. There are plenty of inexpensive model kits and pre painted models to use e.g. Armourfast, and I also pinched terrain bits from model railway stuff.

1/144th seems as if it would permit a lot more maneuvering room, but I guess any scale vehicles you have should work.

15mm on a 6'x4' table works great.

1/144th, 15 and 20mm seems best to me. Just remember what ever scale you use the turrets need to be able to turn!

GGouveia05 Feb 2019 2:57 p.m. PST

15mm for sure.

TunnelRat07 Feb 2019 3:52 a.m. PST

20mm for me as that is what I have already. Use what you have.
