Purveyors of 15mm scenery - who am I missing?
« on: December 01, 2018, 09:58:18 AM »
I'm going to do an article on available 15mm scenery for the first issue of Martin's "15 Mill" ezine.

Before I launch into writing, I'd like to check I've not missed out any major 15mm / 1:100 supplier. My criteria for inclusion are (generally, I've maybe not been 100% consistent) that these are still being sold; are ready-made or kit forms of buildings, fortifications and the like, or ready-made terrain; that they're suitable for historical games. I'm conscious that there's probably a UK bias, but I'm happy to remedy that if folk can provide details of other manufacturers.

My list so far is:

Peter Pig
TimeCast
Arcane Scenery
Ironclad
Baueda
4Ground
Hovels
Battlefront
Kerr & King
Blotz
S&A Scenics
The Scene
Model Scenery Supplies
GCMINI
Old Glory Miniatures
Total Battle Miniatures
Tiger Terrain
Sally 4th
Oshiro

So, clearly a thriving scale to be playing in!

In my article, I plan to include contact details for each manufacturer, a brief summary of their respective ranges, and - where applicable - some comments on their models and anything of particular interest to RFCM rules.

Do please let me know where I've forgotten firms!

A couple I have never heard of there Simon.

One to add is TT Combat, aka The Troll Trader. They sell mainly through eBay and do a small but cheap range of MDF 15mm buildings suitable for 20th century games.

 QRF/Friekorps have a suprisingingly large range of 15mm buildings. Indeed I'm thinking of getting some of there timber framed buildings for my Pirate Raid game.

Empire at War do lovely MDF Spanish buildings. I have the tower and its really nice.

Master Militum stock the JR Miniatures range. A bit pricey though.

 Supreme Littleness Designs have a small range. Interestingly they advertise bases to make islands for Hammerin Iroń.

Some I can think of:

Great Escape Games have some MDF French style buildings and lots of groundwork tufts, grass etc.

Pendraken, although a 10mm company, stock a range of MDF 15mm sci-fi buildings, plus groundwork material, through their Minibits  arm.

The Baggage Train has a range of resin buildings, plus scenic items in a wide range of scales including 15mm.

Stewart's also pointed me to The Square and Grubby Tanks - I think we're all learning about new shiny things here!

Maybe a Top 10 most used companies might make it a more manageable task 😁
