Hello all:

The rules for Trafalgar were written with 1/1200 scale in mind. In the rules, they indicate that if you are using 1/2400 scale, you should half all measurements. Alas, I happened to buy a bundle pack which gave me two 1/3000 scale fleets, which are not covered in the rules.

So my plan was to just go with 1/2400 scale measurements. Does that seem reasonable to you all? Seems reasonable to me.

Also, when they say half all measurments, I'm assuming they also mean the play area as well. So a 4' x 4' table at 1/1200 scale would be 2' x 2' at 1/2400 or 1/3000 scale. Is that an accurate assumption?

Thanks.

When playing with smaller figures than normal, you can take one of two approaches:

- Play with reduced table size, as you mention, or
- Stick with the original table size. For most miniatures games, the size of the model is quite exaggerated with respect to the ground scale. For example, 1/1200 is 1" = 100', 1/3000 is 1" = 250'. I'm not sure what the ground scale is in Trafalgar, but you might find that the 1/3000 are closer to the specified scale.

aren't the 'official' mini's that are actual Warhammer ship mini's in 1/3000 scale? I find that odd.
