I have recently gotten into a bit of Bolt Action in 15mm so decided to collect a couple of small forces, here are some pics of my first army, now completed:











and I have even made a start on my Germans:



Loads more pics and reviews of the three company's I ended buying from on my blog here: http://ablogofwar.blogspot.co.uk/2017/04/world-war-2-15mm-project-part-1-british.html

Great stuff and BA in 15mm is IMO a better game. It 'feels and looks' more WW2.

Thanks mellis1664, I agree it just looks and feels better at this scale, we don't change any of the ranges/distances in the book simply play as written.

Ultravanilasmurf, the single infantry are based on 1p pieces, team weapons etc on any bit of MDF base I had spare and that they fit on  Cheesy

Happymcclap we do exactly the same. We even use some FoW bases for ease of movement in bigger games. The figs like this work really well for CofC if you want a more in depth tactical ww2 game vs the lighter BA rules.

The only thing which can be done (especially in large games) is to doubling max range of all weapons. Short/effective range stays as is, but the max would be double that listed. That would not make much of a difference in normal games but in very large multi-player games it can.
