I bought the Bolt Action rule book and Armies of the US supplement today. Amazon had a great sale, and I am definitely interested in the possibilities of a smaller unit WW II game. Now I will have the difficult task of deciding on a miniatures scale. With Blitzkrieg Commander as another interest, I have placed myself in a trap of sorts.
28mm - Bolt Action is designed for 28mm. The game looks awesome at this scale. I will have the chance to try my painting hand at a new scale, too. Even though 28mm figures are much more expensive, the total number of figures needed is low. I have already learned, though, that I will likely end up with more than the minimum. Playing BKC II at 28mm is not really an option. The cost and table size would be ridiculous.
15mm - I could reuse vehicles for both Bolt Action and BKC II. Cost of entry will be much lower. I can reuse my existing terrain in some cases. This scale would also allow me to play Flames of War if I ever have that desire.
10mm - BKC II looks great in 10mm scale, and I am interested in this size following my paint test last summer. Bolt Action would not work.
6mm - I could split my effort, doing Bolt Action in 28mm and BKC II in 6mm. BKC in the micro-scale which would paint up quickly at low cost.
I won't rush into this, but it may be hard to keep trudging along with my Nap figures for Lasalle once the new rules arrive!
