When I decided to return to miniatures gaming after a long absence, I played with a number of different projects, most of which never really worked for me. As a part of that process I decided to look at WWII. Initially I was thinking 1:300 or so since that was the big scale here when I was last considering an army. I was diverted from that by a chance purchase of a stack of 1:144 Dragon Panzerkorps kits of Stugs. I was rapidly hooked. I found that my half-century old eyes could see the 10mm models about as well as my teenage eyes had been able to make out the 1:300 figures; and the figures are still cheap enough that I could afford both sides of a conflict.
I rapidly discovered that 10m (which is also described as 12mm), like most wargames "figure height masquerading as a scale" measurements, is a pretty vague term. Effectively, a single army when carefully assembled can include everything from largish 1:144 down to "American n-scale" 1:160. I generally describe the "scale" as 1:150±10.
As I post here I will try to illustrate some of what I have discovered, as well as providing links (where I have them) for the various manufacturers I use. I have just started organizing my models into units based on 1-stand = 1-platoon TOEs I have obtained from various sources, so the first few posts at least will feature "parade reviews" of those units I have organized completely.
