Weekender: Gaming At Different Scales & Are You The WWX Big Winner?



🔥 Save on Flames of War! 🔥

Wow, that was a big week. Not only did we have a lot of things going on behind the scenes with filming but we also had one packed with Wild West Exodus, just in case you hadn’t noticed!

Wild West Exodus Week
We’ll be announcing the winner of the Town Marshal Pledge for the Wild West Exodus Kickstarter beginning on Monday AND you can still comment to win two more $30 Vouchers for their webstore over the weekend.

Bolt Action
As well as that goodness we’re talking about Bolt Action and the upcoming Boot Camp while also taking a look at another cool plastic kit from Warlord with their Tiger Boxed Set.

We’re also talking about gaming at different scales, using Flames of War as a gateway, and also talking about Vesper-On’s new game, Room Raiders.

Have a great weekend of gaming!

  • This may very well have been one of my favorites.

  • Battlegroup Kursk in 15mm is great looking.  I think I would enjoy Bolt Action at 15mm as well.  I don't like Bolt Action in 28mm scale because the figure scale to terrain scale is terrible.  It basically says infantry weapons can only shoot 24" or so is around 40 yards, I'm terrible with the actual math.  Take Chain of Command for example, their scale has an infantry man shooting 40 yards for every 12 inches.  This means soldiers can shoot the long way of a 6' table easily.  That changes the tactics from a see how close you can get to enemy troops and still be out of "range", to a game of maneuver in which you need to focus on moving from cover to cover.

    So thank you guys for taking the time to explore other scale options.

  • Hey guys! I`m quite new to tabletop gamming. For many reasons, including price, as far as I know, there`s no big scene here in Brazil. And price is one of the reasons that took me to 6mm. With a couple hundred dollars, if that much, i got myself some 60 vehicles (i`m in modern, MBTs, APCs, hummers, technicals…) and, well, roughly 300 infantry. I played a urban skirmish, with regulars x irregulars on a 1:1 scale and it was fun, although squad level is better. With my models I can do Black Hawk Down-ish battles and I plan to get some sci-fi models and do Battle:LA stuff. With some patience you can get a good amount of details on your models, for instance, my talibans have beards on them. And I can get all of my models stored on a chocolate box. For me, this is a very nice scale. Just 2 cents from someone who was not yet tried other scales

  • Room Raiders sounds amazing. I think the basic concept has been done before with fairy meat though http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/650/fairy-meat

  • Great "almost pre electric era" show. As soon as I get some money I will get a Backstager pass, because what you guys (and girls) do for gaming at BoW has no price. Great job as always.

  • I much prefer 15mm over 28mm.  Not only does it let you try strategic level rather than tactical level warfare, you can also play skirmish-style games in a much smaller space!  Just use centimetres instead of inches and you're good to go.  If you get FoW minis and base them individually you can play 15mm Bolt Action no problem (and for really cheap)

  • Great to see John back. He's my painting sempai. 🙂

    Also, on the scale issue, Planetfall is 10mm (although some say it feels more like 15mm) sci-fi and works really well (I would say that!). I'm also a big fan of historical 10mm using the War & Conquest rules. It's a 28mm game, but simply swap inches for centimetres and it works beautifully.

  • Scale Jump…. Hmm it would have to be a really engaging backstory to hook me. I loved Epic but no longer have any of the mini's. Roomraiders does look good though.

  • There are quite a few players of the old Space Marine game (pre-Epic Armageddon)… rules etc are free online, just google Net Epic and you'll find what you need… its an excellent system, far better than the game which followed and killed off the Epic scale for 40k.

  • I play Black Powder in 15mm. Just do CM instead of inches. When it says 12 inch range, its just 12 cm. Easy

  • The one thing I don't like about 15mm (and FoW in general) is the fact that infantry squads are all on one base. I know it would be a pain to move all of those little guys on their own bases, but something about it just feels off to me :/

  • Room Raiders figure looks awesome, but it reminded me of a wicked game Kenzer & Company have using 1:1 scale, it's Fairy Meat (don't let the name fool you, not a kids game), you play war bands of Fairies that kill & eat each other for power, good twisted fun. You can use any miniatures you have by printing out copies of the wing page & tape/glue them onto your miniatures. I haven't played it in years.
    I'll check out Room Raiders, really like the miniature you guys showed. & see if it's not as weird & twisted as Fairy Meat.

  • Glad you guys are talking about the smaller scales of gaming more ( yes though Dropzone Commander has been very well covered on your channel so defiantly great to see their). They are really the best way to do strategic scaled combat ( you cant really do it in 28mm the battle scale is far too small in scope) DBA is a perfect example ( though their is a 28mm version that works well , however unlike GWs warhammer the bases are smaller and small multi based amounts of units which allows the game scale too still work well) you can maneuver your force around and pick the terrain types you want too fight on. Dropzone Commander and Planet fall have the right idea and I hope too see more growth into this market scale sooner than later!

  • I play Bolt Action and Chain of Command in 20mm. I would try battle group kursk in 20mm as well. Plastic Soldier Company and Zvezda miniatures make this very cheap and easy. Not to mention the huge plastics/die cast range.
    I've always encouraged my flames buddies to try these rule sets with their 15mm. Its a good ground scale, I just don't think flames of war is my favourite rules set.
    Facing the facts, it's a lot easier painting one or two sets of miniatures for multiple rulesets. I'm a father and the gaming budget isn't massive right now.

  • Kenzer company, the makers of knights of the dinner table did a light wargame called fairy meat…. Years back. It was a 1:1 scale using fairy miniatures and yard gnomes. It was a about a war between psychopathic cannibal fairies warbands slaughtering each other and then devouring the bodies in order to gain powers. Very light hearted…. Lol. So yeah its been done before.

  • Lloyd in particular should look into smaller-scale games for ancients…he can still play Hail Caesar, but try it in 10 or 6mm ranges, and he'll get his armies together much faster. I'm going to take the plunge on 6mm myself (while working on my 28mm Romans as well). Nice episode!

  • 15mm is a great scale.

  • Have you considered using micro machines star wars action fleet figures and vehicles
    for your hoth table??? They really hold up detail wise.

  • Epic scale is a much better way to enjoy the 40k universe. I played the first edition quite a lot back in the day.
