15mm and 28mm Fanatik23 Jun 2019 12:52 p.m. PST

The award-winning 2005 PC tactical RTS is finally being adapted into a miniature board game using 15mm (1/120) minis: link

Sadly, 1/120 is smaller than 15mm, closer to 10mm/144th So these will be like 12/13mm, assuming they are even to scale and not just "box scale"

Models look acceptable but to my eye bit less than they could be. Barrels are over scale but am guessing a nod to being more robust since they will get handled a lot. The scale is set, I believe, to make folks dependent on the company for further vehicles. Several good lines out there in 1/144th scale for example but then players could come up with their own vehicles and not have to buy them from this company. Guess, especially if not too picky, could do that anyway.

Over all, however, looks like it could be a fun game and perfect for filling in between "serious" sessions at one of the cons or for a late night, beer and pretzel game.

Unique scale:

Pros: Your customers are stuck with buying future expansions from you.

Cons: Lose customers who would buy your product to use with their other minis.

Reality: People will buy your game (if it is good) and replace the minis with minis in a more standardized scale (I did this with Tide of Iron). They will then be upset at the waste.

Looks OK but these 'single game mini use' board games eat up space, less attractive for me than when the figures can be used elsewhere but I guess the lock in mentioned above is the reason for that.
