|Cinematic, realistic, dramatic... 28mm wargaming all over.|
How did you start collecting 2mm?
My main motivation for collecting and painting models is for the visual effect on the board. I want my armies to look realistic - like a shot from a film, where possible. Clearly, the biggest reason I started in 28mm was that it's the dominant scale for all wargaming, thanks to GW. But they're also a good balance between detail and collectability, and every model I paint in 28mm improves my skill at that level and reinforces the preference.
I've always resisted wargames that aren't 1:1 scale - that is, games where one figure on the board doesn't represent one man in real life. These games can still look great on the board, but for me there's just something not right about putting down ten models with a flag and calling it a 'regiment'. It just chips away at my suspension of disbelief.
