In 2017 a friend had a great idea, play Warhammer (or Ninth Age) with 10mm mini’s using halved measurements. We gathered a small group of enthousiastic gamers, ordered some nice mini’s and Minihammer was born.
I started with a Halfling army because mini Halflings sounded way too cute. I built some models and painted a small army, but then someone offered me a Warmaster Orc army for a nice price so I had to start an Orc & Goblin army. This is the result:
I love building mini armies, and I hope to print off some of @LordKrell s mini’s soon!
@MichaelX Mini hammer plays great. you only need a 1/4 of the table so you can almost play anywhere. We had some 1/2 inc rules printed to make the game measurement a little easier and maybe you should avoid moving single heroes on foot on their own but in all its great. and there is a amazing collection of 10mm miniatures out there and you can paint one army in a month and it will look stunning.
(May be I should post my army too)
Well it isn’t just you. I’ve been looking into Minihammer a bit and I saw another European group doing the same. Actually…it was another Dutch guy, but playing somewhere ‘up north’.
I seem to remember everything I ever bought in Belgium was in English. Did they ever do anything Warhammer in Dutch? I guess if they did, they’d have already converted it to cm. I wonder if in Italy or Spain, where they did have rules in their languages whether it was in inches or cm.
One thing I always said, was that 28mm was the wrong scale for wargaming. That there was plenty of detail on 20mm/1/72 scale figures. And that, that would have been a much better scale to go with, for a wargame.
However, looking at these new resin 10mm figures… holy hairy bat balls those things are amazing! It’s like before was playing tennis with a cricket ball and being then handed a tennis ball. I guess, my old adage about 20mm being the right scale is double the size wrong!
I was watching a painting guide on this scale on youtube. They said that you have to make it brighter for the little guys to stand out. And to add some vibrant detail. I can see you’ve done that with the bright purples and such. Very clever, and such a beautiful army. If you have any more 10mm, I’d love to see it!
Is there a tangible reason why? I mean, I know where you’re coming from…I was always a metal man, when plastics started to become the norm. More character…a nicer feel when moving…and just a quality to them that plastics can’t achieve.
However, these resins…seem to have much more detail, buckets of character and at 10mm, I doubt you feel a different of weight in your hand. So genuinely interested on your opinion on the matter.
Ok, I’m off to peruse your lovely perversions (slaanesh).
I think it’s also a collecting thing. The challenge of getting the minis together for an army. There is only an X amount of metal Epic 40k Greater Daemons of Slaanesh in existance, and I can always print more digital sculpts.
