Model Scale Comparison

All 3d printed, except for the 1/300 model which is from Heroics & Ros.
I've filled out a bit more of my range of scale comparison models to include one at 1/150 scale, which would be in the 12mm figure bracket  — that would cover about 1/120 to 1/160 scale, with the most common probably being 1/144. In truth, the Bishop probably wasn't the best vehicle to choose for something like this; I just sort of fell into it.

I'm pretty heavily committed to 1/100 (15mm) scale, and that's not very likely to change in the foreseeable future. I've got a whole bunch of 1/300 and 1/285 stuff as well, though I almost never use it these days.

If I was starting WWII wargaming again from scratch, I think I'd probably be going for 1/200. Big enough to see, small enough to store easily, and small enough to play satisfactory games on a relatively small table.

  1. Always interesting to see scale comparisons like this. If you have any interest in expanding this, a HO/ 1/87 addition would be interesting, as well as a 1/285 step between the 1/200 and 1/300 (since many treat that as being the same thing as 1/300)

    With Victrix coming out with 12mm WWII kits next year, interest in that scale may increase.

  2. Question. I too am committed to the 15mm scale. How are you doing the markings on armor/vehicles, unit symbols, weight, census numbers etc? Decals? hand painting or? if decals, where do you source yours if I may ask?

    Thanks for sharing all your great work!

    1. I hand-paint all my markings, for two reasons: first, because I don't have a ready supply of decals, and second, because even when I do have decals I'm terrible at manipulating them so they don't end up wonky.

  3. I'm here to testify about Mr John Blank ATM Cards which can withdraw money from any ATM machines around the world.. firstly I thought it was scam until I saw so many testimony about how Mr John sent them the ATM blank card and how it was used to withdraw money in any ATM machine and become rich so I decided to risk the opportunity I contacted him also and I applied for the Blank Card to my greatest surprise I have used it to get 10,000 dollars. maximum withdrawal daily $1,000, Mr John is giving out the card just to help the poor. Hack and take money directly from any ATM Machine Vault,If your interested kindly contact him directly on his email (johnlopez1945@gmail.com)
