I am getting back into 15mm World War II gaming after many years. I plan on using Peter Pig for infantry but who makes the best armor/vehicles?

Ideally I would buy all the armor/vehicles from one manufacturer so they are all compatible and I favor metal. I could be convinced to go in the resin/plastic direction if necessary

Plastic Soldier Company does some great plastic kits in 15mm. Not sure if you can get everything you need. Zvesda also does great 15mm stuff and it is dirt cheap.

I'd be surprised if you could get everything from one manufacturer, although Skytrex have a large (and expensive) range.

I've gone big time into the plastic kits from Zvezda and Plastic Soldier Company as they are lovely little models, very good value and easy to convert. Otherwise it is all the usual suspects – Battlefront, Peter Pig, QRF, Skytrex/Old Glory, Forged in Battle etc.

In 15mm stuff tends to be more compatible than in 20mm, although some of the older Skytrex stuff is 1/106th, as is Quality Castings (which used to be '15mm' scale) – most stuff is 1/100th now. My PP Panthers look bigger than my Zvezda ones just because the metal gun barrels are so thick – the chassis are identical in size.

Are you more model builder or 'get it on the table' gamer?

If a modeler, the PSC and BF

Otherwise Skytrex/Old Glory. these are fewer pieces to assemble and are good gaming pieces

Take a look at Gaming Models, gamodls.com. Nicely done resin Wargame pieces. You can get them base colored. Cost per vehicle is $5.00 USD! In fact, if you check the WWII land marketplace, you will find that I have a bunch for,sale.

Why not use the armor and vehicles from Peter Pig?
