Warhammer in 10mm scale? (No Not Warmaster )
« on: June 02, 2011, 05:54:18 PM »

Wondering if anyone has given a though to playing Warhammer in 10mm.  Iím not talking about playing Warmaster here but actual Warhammer using Warmaster figures and models from the likes of pendraken miniatures.

Iím planning on giving it a go as I have some 10mm DBA and Epic scale greater daemons.  ( and with a 10K point army of brets from pendraken minatures costing about £85 the capital outlay is low).

We plan to play some large battles at this scale and simply measure all ranges in CM instead of inches.  Playing normal sized battles (Sub 3000pts) on 72 cm by 48cm boards.  Larger battles will take place on a standerd 6 foot by 4 foot board with deployment zones only 12cm onto the table.  Im hoping this would redress the cavalry balance as it will take 12 turns for the avarage infantry model to cross the table.  A few of my friends have warmaster armies and we will be using 3rd ed rules.

Am I mad  :Ohmy: or is this a cheep, fantastic and easy way of creating large battles  :happy:

Anyone have any thoughts?

Well, as long as you adjust the size of the terrain like houses and such. It sounds pretty damn workable!
Oh, and remember GW made it personal, not you!

  Sounds like a great idea as long as you work out the size and everything.  Good job.   :eusa_clap:

I already have quite a bit of 10mm Napoleonic buildings and N Gauge (which is about 11-12mm scale) Railway trees and stuff knocking about. I can to fill a 6 by 4 foot board with it all. 

Which at this scale a 6'x4' board equates to a scale 10 foot by 15 foot board.

 :::cheers::: Good for you sir...sound like a blast and a great way to play some truly EPIC battles.  The use of the 3ed. is great too...by far the most interesting and realistic set of Warhammer rules.  Please post some After Action Reports as you proceed I would love to see them.

Cheers,

Blue
