Request: DFC/DZC side by side pic

PostSat Sep 02, 2017 5:00 pm

Hello,

I have the idea of using DZ minis as counters and tokens for DF, like the PHR Ares walkers and Sabre Tanks as armor tokens, and so on. However i have no idea how big they are because ppl don't play DZC over here, so can someone post some pics with the light tanks and infantry units next to DF models, so I can judge the size.
Bonus points if you have the sector tokens, a ruler or the good ol' common 23mm round base in there as well.
Thx.

Really cool idea! You could kind of go the Axis-Allies way with stacking chits with a model atop. Using regular 25mm bases should do the trick. I will try to remember this tomorow and get som pictures at the club

Way too big. Air(table)space at the sectors is already at a premium. the thought of having dozens of extra miniatures on the table is crazy.

The normal models are too big...

My advice would be to use DZC Infantry. There are also some nice acrylic bases out there with a dice sized recess.

That's my plan at least.

You could feasibly have a 20x20mm base with some microarmour glued to it. GHQ do a reasonable BTR-70.

Here you can check the scale, some are placed on 20mm Axis/Allies bases
