28mm Scale Comparison Shot for Modern Wargaming

I hope this might be helpful- here are some caparison photos of some of the figures in my collection.
Scale is a weird thing, as many different manufacturers have different ideas f what a 28mm figure should look like- as you can see these minis are all roughly the same size, but the difference in sculpting style, bulk and weapons size makes the world of difference- at the end of the day it's just down to preference.

Spectre Miniatures Goes Live!

Just a quick heads up, the Spectre Miniatures Kick Starter went live today, and I am already a backer- I have pledged at Contractor level, but will be looking to increase this if more cash becomes available.

The prices are good, averaging about £2 per model, and that includes postage. The KS is set up so that you can order the number of packs you want, and not that you are tied in to buying any particular bundles, so if you only want say Special  Forces, PMC or CIA, then you can buy exactly what you want. This is sensible because their will be many collectors who don't need the African troops (obviously I do) then they can tailor the KS to their own needs.

There are a few stretch goals that look rather interesting too, and a KS exclusive mini called 'deniable asset' and anyone who pledge get a PDF version of the rules too- so that's handy.
