building scale
« on: January 19, 2015, 05:49:47 PM »
what is the actual scale of this game?  if I make some scenery islands and towns and ports etc. etc. what scale am I actually using?  I have seen a few pics on this forum and they are very attractive and I would love to try my hand at it.

thanks

1/900-1200ish, or 2-3mm.

so yeah, i cannot find anything on this scale  :(

the cliff hills and such are a no brainer but what was used to make those buildings? just carve your own squares from a material and glue them together in a form like a city?

I just saw and looked up a board game by milton bradley called "Conquest of the Empire" that someone was using those game pieces as statues for their "uncharted seas" terrain.  Does anyone else know of any board games like that?  that game is mostly roman so it would fit to much outside of those statues on the cliff setting

I missed pico armor, the other ones I saw but just didn't really like them.  Nothing spoke to me you know?  ha

I e-mailed a john at the pico armor website to find out how long the trenches are, I would love those for the warmaster game!  I will probably make a pretty good size order from them pretty soon!
