Plastic Soldier Company moderns are listed at 10mm. As we all know that means different things to different people. Anyone know what these actually scale out to? Their website seems to say 1/144th. Anyone care to comment on this line? I realize this is the WW II board but thought topic would get lost on the moderns forum.

Marc,

I wish I could add something of value here, but the only modern infantry I've worked with are those Pegasus figs.

Well hoping for a review of their vehicles. Have a friend who is interested in perhaps doing modern (60s-80s primarily). Also interested in any other lines which may match the PSC vehicles in scale.

Just what I need, another period!

:))) For sure!

Hey, and there's the Timecast Cold War '84 line too (maybe more pricey, crispy metal/resin cast combos).

I've got another story (it all comes along with aging I think :))) when back in those Cold War days, 'modern' gaming was much the rage. I looked at it being just "hypothetical" (and largely "unmeasurable"), and would only go for doing a little collection for Middle East conflicts, that as being "historical".

Now come decades later, a few of the old Cold War Warriors of the tabletop have gotten into WW2 collections recently around my area…..hmmmmm. ;)

Marc, looks like you might be bucking the trend!

Funny thing about that. Talk about bucking the trend. The modern craze hit being driven in part by GHQ getting a government contract to produce "modern" vehicles which basically paid for their molds. Lots of rules with various data on both sides. I was doing WW2 but was "persuaded" to get into Cold War stuff. I did buy much too much "modern" micro armor (which I mainly got rid of a few years ago) but found I couldnt play the rules. I was an intelligence officer (as opposed to an intelligent one) and too much of the data and performance for Pact forces was just dead wrong. Couldnt play and bite my tongue :)

Now looking to get in for the 60-80s (maybe 90s) and seems like 1/144th may do it for me. Forgot about the Timecast range! How do they measure/compare to the PSC vehicles?

That's a story with some legitimate nuts & bolts to it.

Have you found that rule set now that comes close to your expectations?

(wish I could give you some feedback on these moderns here, but I've never had any of the Timecast or PSC minis)

I did spot this pic on the 10mm Facebook page of someone's WIP using PSC's minis -

Thanks for the pics.

Just dipping my toe back in the era. Good friend of mine has a few recommendations for modern rules and will follow up with you.

Meanwhile can "console" myself with a rather robust 1/144th scale WW2 collection. Right now decent Russian, US and German armies. I still have quite the collection of 15mm mind you. And of course I have your excellent pictures and reports to live vicariously when not playing myself.
