Any chance of cheaper shipping for book only orders to Australia? 17 quid is pretty steep!

Okay, I've been studiously ignoring this on the basis that its 10mm and not my preferred scale for WWII onwards which is 1:144 but the pop-up on the link says '10mm (1:144)'. Can anyone comment on the scaling?

Its bad enough trying to ignore the Timecast adds….

Interesting deal with Sovs in BTR-60PB vs BAOR, 3SA was equipped with BMP, the one army in GSFG so equipped,

Tally Ho!

I'm the same with ROUWetPatchBehindTheSofa, is it 10mm(1/200) or is it really 1/144 scale? Also I find it interesting that PSC sold off their 15mm Armies Army cold war rage and now starting up this new cold war range.

I thought that 10mm was 1/160 (railroad N gauge), Armaments in Miniature calls 1/200 scale 9mm. 12mm is 1/144.

PSC chose 1/144 as the vehicle scale for their BG Northag 10mm game because it's close enough. Railroad scales are not Wargame scales and we never see wargame manufacturers make models in railroad scales (1/48, 1/87, 1/160).

Having previously owned a Skytrex Action 200 Vietnam collection – the figures measured in only fractionally shorter than 10mm though notably smaller and thinner in proportion to 10mm ranges. And definitely a lot smaller than 12mm, which will sit reasonably comfortably with some 10mm ranges. Having owned all three vehicle scales, 1:200, 1:150 (10mm) and 1:144 (12mm) defiantly a very noticeable difference between them. I wonder if they'll expand this scale into WWII or early Cold War? Personally I'd like to do early Cold War since I've got a lot of late WWII Soviet armour kicking about.

Victrix's new offshoot company are releasing 1:144 late war WW2 range in the New Year…

Just Googled them v. v. nice and in plastic. Is 1:144/12mm becoming the new 15mm?
