PSC 15mm US Tank Company


My proper birthday present this week is a Plastic Soldier Company US Tank Company boxed set, which I'm told is on the way to me in the post from Amazon. This was a bit of an afterthought by the other half, who asked me what I wanted and who I subsequently pointed in the direction of my Amazon Wishlist. I plan to use the set as the basis of a late war US army for I Ain't Been Shot Mum, alongside some 15mm US Winter Infantry from Battlefront, so that I can 'do' the Battle of the Bulge, Reichswald, Siegfried Line and so on at company level.

This will make good use of the multi scale Cigar Box Battle tundra terrain cloth that I haven't used enough of and it also fits nicely with my existing WW2 interests, namely the 28mm late war US platoon that I have used for skirmish gaming. I will now be re-deploying my existing 15mm WW2 lead pile of Peter Pig British and German figures for platoon level games using Chain of Command or even Disposable Heroes 2, so there will be no clash of interests or unnecessary waste. This means I can have the best of both worlds, with a decent multiple based company level army and a couple of single figure based platoon strength forces as well.

Happy Birthday to me!

  1. Doing it all in 15mm seems like the optimal solution :-)

    Do you know if that box comes with both 75 and 76mm guns as options?

  2. Yes I think it does..so loads of mix and match possible. I agree about 15mm..less expensive, loads of really good plastic afv's and hopefully quicker to paint? 😂

  3. They can be speed painted rather effectively

  4. Yes, the idea is to paint them up with a wet brush and dry brush approach followed by a wash...simple but hopefully fairly quick.
