Wondering what the market place is like these days for 15mm Armies in this scale? I'm moving to 6mm forces and using Bloody Big Battles and have used my 15mm in the past. Is this market still vibrant and is there a demand?

Depends what you've got and how much you're asking.

I'm looking at the FPW with the 150th coming up.

So that's one.

I am also a potential buyer, but I think that you need to provide some more information if you want to be able to gauge the level of interest.

I was always hoping that Kallistra would do FPW/APW in their large '10mm' style like their ACW range.

I put some Austrians on ebay recently with NIL interest, well painted and based on 60x30mm MDF. I asked a fair price for painted minis. I'm not a supporting member so need to be careful I don't overstep the rules here.

150th Anniversary sounds promising next year, I'll be doing this in 6mm with BBB rules. I also hang out on the BBB I might post some images there.

Bloody Big BATTLES!

I'm happy to be corrected, but I don't think that you would be breaking rules by saying what you've got and posting some pictures. Any negotiations could be done directly.

Our club decided to use 10mm FPW figures even though a couple of members already had 15mm FPW figures. I think they struggled to get a decent price for their 15mm figures.

10mm from Pendraken are an excellent choice.

I like Bruce Weigle's 1871 rules. Get all of Bruce's rules 1859 to 1871.

For those interested my 15mm chaps cover French, German, Italian and Austrian that can be used between 1859 and 1871. I have some minor German states for the 1866 Seven Weeks War. There is a conversation happening in the BBB IO group …
