been searching high and low for WWII vehicles to go along with the 6mm figs on this sitte, but there dosent seem to be any.

so i must ask, where do i get those? ive heard of these microarmour, but im not sure thats the thing, or i need smaller than that, like 1/350 scale. what sites can you recomend and what scale is the correct one för 6mm figs?

I am also interested in getting some WW2 vehicles to go with baccus infantry. GHQ are too small compared to Baccus and so are most of the 6mm ranges. I thought about Pendraken but I dont see any comparison shots on the internet and would be glad of some if any have them.

 

Or an estimate of when the Baccus vehicles will be released, It seems like theyve been in development for awhile.

Have to agree. My GHQ and Heroics vehicles are too small alongside my US/German Baccus figures. From top of helmet and including the figures base some are between 8 to 9mm tall. Pendraken tanks are 10mm scale so I would expect the Baccus range to be similar in size to these. I don't have any so cannot say for sure they would be the right scale.

OK just had a Pendraken 10mm Tiger MkVI 1E in the post today. Ginormous compared to Baccus WWII Germans and Yanks. The hull alone is 40 x 30mm. I didn't even bother measuring the total length with the gun barrel. Here's waiting on your tanks Peter

I think Skytrex is 1/200 scale (so effectively 8mm) - these might work ok? Its been a while since I used them though - the infantry were awful!

I haven't bought with Skytrex for years.

Still think Peter will come up with some brilliant vehicle though.

Hi,

The links below may be of interest.

I'm looking forward to the new WWII vehicles as well.

I hope the barrels are less bendy then the GHQ stuff!
