2mm VSF for Historicon: The British

In my last post I featured some example bases of the German VSF troops that I am preparing for my Historicon "Look, Sarge, It's Mars" game, using modified "Look, Sarge, No Charts: ACW" rules, Brigade Models Land Ironclads, and Irregular's 2mm troops. Today I am featuring examples from my British forces.
As before, all troop and vehicle stands are 3 inches by 1.5 inches, HQ and battery stands are 1.5 by 1.5 inches. I also wanted to expain that I purposely did not paint the windows on my ironclads. I feel that in battle they would have some sort of protective shutters on them, rather than expose the crew to lots of shattering glass.

Posting these now to show I once painted eyes on a 2mm figure:


  1. I've enjoyed checking-out your new Blog, particularly the inventive use of bits 'n' pieces for terrain. Your photo at the head of this page, showing the Aeronef refueling or docking points is very good. Keep up the good work.


  2. Some more nice work there, Chris, especially liking the dismounted Dragoon base - very effective - so what's next? What are you using for 2mm Martians? :-)

  3. Thanks for the compliments and encouraging words. I may have to write a piece in the future on how I made the Aeronef docks.
    I haven't given my Martians a lot of thought yet, as I've been concentrating on my European forces. I did order some assorted 2mm strips from Irregular to see what I could come up with for Matians but haven't gotten to them yet. I've also been puzzling over what to use for the big four-armed Martians...I thought maybe 6mm orcs, but figured the lack of a second pair of arms would be noticableat that scale...and I can't imagine doing a lot of conversions on that size figures.
