I'd always wanted to do SG2 in 15mm, the only reason I bought 25mm
figures originally was because there were no 15mm ones at that time. The
main reasons are space - as Andy says, 15mm feels less cramped; price -
an SG2 squad costs around the same as 3 25mm figures; and also the fact
that I have a large amount of scratchbuilt 15mm SF scenery I built some
years ago (in the days before marriage and kids, when I actually had
some spare time !). The main problem has always been figure
availability, which as far as I'm concerned Jon has entirely solved with
the new 15mm SG2 figures.
