Hey guys, just had an idea and want some feedback.
Since I picked up the starter box for the game, I’ve been a little hesitant towards actually getting some more models. I really didn’t care for the paint jobs, the bafflingly bad scale between men and tanks, and the low quality of the plastic. I am interested in the game as it seems fast playing and the unique unit rules would allow for a lot of strategy, but the minis are a definite turn-off, as is the “collectible” (ie, expensive) nature of the models.
So, does anyone know any other good mini manufacturers who make models that would be roughly the right scale? I’ve been looking at the Flames of War range as an alternative, it seems quite good actually, and comparatively affordable. It would require a set amount, like 50 or so bucks, for a faction, but then you’d have several of the units you wanted, and no useless doubles. Finding the cards shouldn’t be hard, I found a unit summary on a site yesterday.
Anyone else have some ideas for models or alternative solutions? Thanks guys.
