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. Being a vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, but how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the vampires creed today via email: Richvampirekindom@gmail.com

  3. 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!

I found the STLs for this on Thingiverse, but foolishly neglected to take note of exactly where. Hey-ho. This lot took about seven hours t...
