Well, I have no idea why, but when PSC put out Americans (at least quite a bit of them) and Germans, for some reason I just had to get some. I know we're still getting to know each other, but here's a bit of history on old Jack. I only started wargaming a couple years ago (mid-2009, to be exact), and one of my first projects was 15mm for Crossfire using nothing but Old Glory's Command Decision line. I quickly rang up several hundred dollars in shiny new metal, then set to slavishly painting and basing these things. I got a few games in with my Old Man before getting rid of them.
This is not an indictment of 15mm, but for me they are just too big. I don't like the way they look on my 6' x 4' tabletop, it doesn't look like I want my (particularly) WW2 games to look. I'm talking about a stand equals a squad, a vehicle's a vehicle, a gun a gun, no arty on table, etc... Just too much stuff in too small an area. As I'm looking at it I can't help but think "they need some interval, some dispersion, and they should be able to shoot across the whole table, longways." Now, in scale, that probably holds true in 10mm also, but, to my eye, 10mm is more visually pleasing.
So, what did I do? To make a long story short, I pretty much just gave them away, then spent the past couple years amassing considerable forces in 10mm (see my initial post where I lay out an inventory). And then I bought some more... Here's some pics:
