Does anybody know what each line in this scale represents (http://resources.cmon.com/Scale_Big.png)? Does each line represent one inch, or 10mm etc? I'm trying to gauge how tall and/or big the miniatures will be and it would be really helpful to find the actual height of them. I apologize if this has already been discussed, but I can't seem to find the answer anywhere. Thank you!

Also, does anybody know the latest estimated shipping date that it will arrive on our doorstep?

I'll preface by saying that I honestly don't know so please take this with a grain of salt.

With that out of the way - my educated guess is that the lines represent inches. With the usual scale in miniature gaming being around 25-28mm, it could very represent MD minis next to the "typical mini".

Maybe someone else has better source or info. Anyway - can't wait for the game whistle

My highly sophisticated "post-it-note held up to the monitor" measuring system indicates that the increments are the same size as the human mini's base diameter. Since the human-sized minis are on 1-inch bases, I'm going to agree that the lines are probably inches.

Would a good guess be that the brown miniature on the left is between 25-28mm tall then?

It's fairly likely that it's 25mm to the eyes.

Yes, the figures are supposed to be in line with the Zombicide figs, and so the brown figure will be about 1 1/4" tall.

Some online stores are posting an August release date for retail. If that's an indicator (and it might not be) I'd expect around the summer by the looks of it. I'd just wait for an official response because it's all just speculation at this point.
