Peter Pig 15mm figures Peter Pig is one of the world's leading 15mm figure manufacturers. We make 5500 different figures and models. These are distilled into 1800 (15mm) packs. Every range has an associated set of rules. Also, there are related 15mm scenery ranges to accompany the figure ranges. In these days of wandering measures of sizes into 18mm, 12mm and other sizes close to 15mm; Peter Pig has remained true to the 15mm ideal. These other sizes are often an attempt by a manufacturer to create a market for just their peculiar size. It is also used by sculptors who cannot work well with the 15mm size restriction and so need extra size in order to create acceptable sculpts. Peter Pig will continue to do 15mm wargame figures. We will also constantly return to each range in order to carry out updates and additions. Thus we have 15mm ranges with longevity and future potential.
Sherman Variants By Peter Pig
Here are the details of the PP 15mm Sherman series. It is quite complicated but worth a read.
18. Sherman. The basic Sherman with welded hull, 75gun and no extra armour.
237. Sherman Firefly 17pdr. This has the lengthened hull and tracks peculiar to British Shermans (often called Sherman Five) Has the 17pdr gun and modified hatch arrangement for fireflies. Fireflys were 1 per troop. This means 1 firefly and 3 normal Shermans.
242. Sherman DD with skirt down. This is the Duplex Drive (DD) The screen is folded down as if the tank has just landed.
246. Sherman M4A4 75mm British This is the standard British Sherman with lengthened racks and lengthened hull with new engine deck.
248. M10 Achilles 17pdr. British This is an open turreted tank destroyer mounting the 17pdr AT gun.
231. Sherman M4+Applique armour This is the standard US Sherman with 75mm gun. Extra pieces of armour are welded over the armour bins and vulnerable parts of the turret. These bits of armour are welded over the existing armour.
232. Sherman M4+Applique+Stowage Same as 231 but covered in a pile of bits and pieces , ready to drive through Europe.
233. Sherman M4A3 75mm Newer US hull with steeper front and new engine deck. Uses existing Sherman 75mm turret.

All Peter Pig 15mm WW2 Shermans come with open and closed hatches.
All the Peter Pig 15mm WW2 Shermans have interchangeable turrets.
Peter Pig 15mm WW2 Shermans can be supplied with the widened tracks (Duck bill)/grousers extensions to allow for softer ground thus increasing the track area.
Most 15mm WW2 companies use the same track unit for their British and US Shermans. They are in fact different. The British track units are longer with a bigger spacing between the bogie wheels.
