Default 15mm Deck Plan Collection

If anyone is interested, I've taken all my deck plans to date and reformatted them for 15mm figure use (18"x24") and made a few additions/revisions. They are all included in a single PDF that can be downloaded from my blog here: Traveller 15mm Deck Plan Collection

The reformatting was done for purely selfish reasons. Most of my Traveller miniatures are 15mm and the smaller sheet size is less expensive to print. Just hoping someone else might get some use out of them.

Thanks, downloading now.

I never did the mini thing, counters good enough, but we do have mini fiends that will appreciate having them, so I have been looking to get into a 'good enough' collection of them.

Which brings up a point- what is the preferred size, 10mm 15mm or 25mm?

I was under the impression that 25mm was preferred by people that like detail and personality to their figures, 15mm was a good Striker outside fight size with vehicles, and 10mm is moreso but with a lot less choices.

If I had my druthers I would go 10mm as that happens to be 1:161 and that's N scale, which means one can use existing people, vehicles and structures, but the selection strikes me as paltry. So I'm leaning 15mm at the moment.

I was never into minis too much either, but others in my gaming group were. One of my friends had a large collection of well detailed 25mm Traveller figures, so we typically used those. Deck plans were usually drawn on a dry erase battlemap.

I liked the 15mm figures because they are smaller/cheaper and fit the deck plans which were included in the Snapshot game.

I consider my 15mm Traveller collection a "good enough" set.

I still have my 25mm Marines and a few of my 15mm adventurers. I do like the detail of the 25's, but usually used the 15's. Excellent stuff Beerfume!

It is much more than "good enough". It is quality work, thanks for sharing it with us.

They're...simply...awesome.

Thank you.

Question: What's position "C" on the bridge of the Hammer class merchant? I'm guessing the other three are: N = Navigation, P = Pilot, G = Gunner.

C = Computer?
