I'd be doing something platoon scale, but with multiple models per base - preferably one per actual real tank in the platoon. If I was doing yet another project I won't get finished, which I'm not Cheesy even if they look really nice...

I'm doing 3mm WW2 NW Europe and intending to use BKC.

I'm basing platoon sized elements on 40x20mm bases with a roughly 1:1 number of models per base.

Works for me, so far.

Chap on this blog (James) has used 3mm Oddsial Osmy moderns for Team Yankee rules. Quite the number of photos and written info if you scroll through the earlier posts on the 3mm thread.

My local club (that I'm not a member of) did this modern 3mm display game that did the rounds last year. Here are some pics from their website if you are interested.

I have a slow burning 3mm modern project.

They two forces will represent imaginations set in the Middle East, one Soviet equipped and the other western, Chieftains,  AMX30s etc.

I aim on using CWC.

I use FOW style medium sized bases for the standard unit which represents a platoon, with the correct number of vehicles on it.

I've attached a couple of pictures of my T64s and BMP1s
