If you are 15mm gamer and have miniatures from different manufacturers, you may know about size difference in this scale. The matter is some manufacturers made true 15mm figures, and other 16mm, 17mm and even 18mm figs. Peter Pig is one of my favorite manufacturer, but his true 15mm figures looks a bit small in comparison to Blue Moon and Irregular Miniatures figs.
Here is size comparison shot of "Blue Moon" Wild West range civilian, "Peter Pig" Sudan range British soldier and "Irregular Miniatures" Colonial range Sepoy. As you can see true 15mm Peter Pig guy is on the smaller side.
But I found a solution how to deal with this size difference!!!!
You just need to use greenstuff or other material to uplift your true 15mm miniature from its base. When basing your bigger 15mm miniatures, try to cut their base to minimum and place figure inside the washer hole to make miniature look smaller. If you don't use washers but coins, just try to make your uplifted smaller figure heads to be on same lever as bigger 15mm guys.
Here is photo of uplifted Peter Pig figure, true 15mm Wild West figure with sanded base (sorry I haven't finished painting this guy) and bigger Blue Moon figure (with cutted base) placed in the washers hole.
Several mouths ago I found that if you use natural sand and Kommando Khaki (Karak Stone) paint for base sides and also you will have much better results!
Here is comparison photo of 4 miniatures based on 20mm washers. First figure is 80% painted Bornu from Irregular Miniatures with base sides painted with Desert Yellow, second figure is Peter Pig Egyptian Speaman with sand on its base and base sides painted with Desert Yellow, third figure is Irregular Miniatures Maasai Warrior with sanded base and base sides painted with Kommando Khaki, and fourth figure is Irregular Miniatures Settler from American Indian range with base sides painted with Kommando Khaki. As you can see figure bases on the left side look much better. Now I am going to repaint all my Desert Yellow base sides with Kommando Khaki
I used Citadel paint called Desert Yellow (Tallarn Sand in new Citadel paints range) for his base uniform color, then washed him using Gryphonne Sepia (Seraphim Sepia), then highlighted with Kommando Khaki (Karak Stone) and then small highlight with Bleached Bone (Ushabti Bone) :)
I found video battle report of Mount and Musker mod for Mount and Blade Warband.
This is online battle with REAL people fighting classical Napoleonic company battles with 3 ranks firing volleys. Unique experience to see what it was like to be in the company as ordinary musketeers. Interesting even if you don't play this mod. In this battle report French were to slow and first volley was made by Brits.
