Have put some comments about Skytrex 1/200 on the WW2 6mm Board No pics…but what I am engaged in in this scale.
Part Time Gamer: The 'old ' 1970s GHQ did have horribly 'bendy' or breakable barrels…as did CinC 1/285. More recent GHQ are MUCH more durable, much more accurate and have an incredible level of detailing 'cast on'…ready to paint!
However, they are SMALL and unless turret pinned/glued on…and based…they are easy to 'lose'! As a 'small' experiment, I bought some 1/200 Skytrex…
1/200 is approx 8mm…(and maybe a bit!). 10mm is a totally different scene…much more akin to 15mm, but smaller…so allowing more space on table, but with equivalent levels of detail.
Many of the older Pendraken vehicles are about 1/150, however they are revamping many pieces and are becoming more compatible with 1/144 and the lovely pre-painted ,(OOP, but still available), Takara/World Tank Museum 1/144,…or Dragon 1/144.. (Shop around on ebay! Some stuff is way overpriced…some suppliers MUCH cheaper!)…and the very new range of 1/144 from Victrix!
Pendraken Infantry, being excellent, 'chunky' and durable sculpts work great in 1/144. Softskin vehicles, guns, etc. from Pendraken still work fine…in this sort of scale, differences in size are not really appreciable unless mixing same vehicle/gun in same unit. BUT…there is growing competition with 1/144 stuff from other manufacturers…the new Victrix, Butlers Printed Models, Arrowhead…
I already have MASSES of 1/144…but have NOW got MASSES of 1/200! Have a good look and make a choice!!! lol.
I would say, that for ACCURACY and DETAIL either GHQ 1/285 OR 1/144 from various sources would be great choices. Skytrex 1/200 need work…maybe, quite a lot to be near comparable. BUT, I have developed a definite liking for them…just like the size!
