Figure Scale

Where Used

* using "eye height" as the rule for height scale

Theoretical Equivalent*

1/1200th

Mainly used for naval, air or starship miniatures, especially for pre-20th century ships.

1.34mm

2mm

At this scale, each miniature often represents an entire unit (a group of men, squadron of cavalry, battery of artillery). Recommended for those who want to depict large, epic battles in a limited table space, or who have less time for painting. Historical and science fiction.

1/805

6mm

Equivalent to 1/285 scale and 1/300 scales. Miniatures in this scale have the advantage of being inexpensive. The small size also means there is less visible detail to paint. In this scale, it is possible to put armies on the tabletop which give the impression of masses of infantry. Figures available for fantasy, historical, and science fiction.

1/268

10mm

Relatively new scale, used for fantasy, historical and science fiction. Some think this will be the popular scale of the future, larger enough to show detail but small enough to fit a large army on a tabletop.

1/161

15mm

The most popular scale for pre-20th Century Wargaming. Also used for fantasy, science fiction, and 20th Century "skirmish-level" games.

1/107

20mm

Becoming popular for skirmish-level 20th Century Wargaming. Also, used for science fiction.

1/80.5

25mm

Traditionally popular for pre-20th Century Wargaming, though most historical gamers have now switched to 15mm. Excellent scale for display games. Continues to be popular for fantasy Wargaming, historical skirmish-level games, science fiction, and for use with role-playing games. Same as railroad S gauge.

1/64

28mm

These "large" 25mm figures are sometimes listed as being 28mm.

1/58
