I'm looking to add more miniatures to my Battle Cry game. I am curious as to what scale the original pieces are. If possible, I prefer to have the scale in both inches & mm. Any assistance is appreciated.

Thanks!

No rulers/scales in your house? I only have an engineering scale on hand in inches. The Infantry figure is 9/10 of an inch or 22.86 mm from the bottom of the base to the top of his head, not rifle or flag. I too am looking to add to my figures which I have recently just started to paint. If you find any, please let me know what to look for.

I believe the miniatures in Battle Cry are compatible with 1:72 scale plastic miniatures. The 22mm measurement certainly agree with this.

If you're looking for metal figures, you might try Musket Miniatures. They do a line of 22mm scale figures designed to be compatible with plastics.

Okay, this leads to a second question. Are the 1/72 miniatures offered by Eagle Games' The American Civil War compatible with Battle Cry?

Judge for yerself. 1/72 seems to be a bit larger than the stock minis but close enough for me.
