6mm for the best massed armies look.

robert piepenbrink Supporting Member of TMP25 Aug 2023 1:38 p.m. PST

I've got 10's, 6's and 2's. Tens work nicely with a number of commercial rules, and I use them for small battles. Sixes are geared for Altar of Freedom and should let me do pretty much all the big battles. Twos are my vacation army, fitting (with board, rules and terrain) in a laptop carrier.

The 54's in the garage are a hedge against failing eyesight.
