28mm in general, but I play that and 15mm depending on which of my figures I'm using. Mechanically it works fine with both. I just us cm instead of inches with 15mm.

Blame posting via phone on the train home after work and battling against intermittant signal.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Well, that might be technically true, but it doesn't really matter. Most people I know who switch between scales do this.

You could use 15mm figures and keep inches for measurement.

You could just change all the move rates and ranges to whatever you like.

Whatever keeps you happy.

Whilst you are absolutely correct and the above is a brilliant piece of deductive reasoning, you may be hard pressed to find a measuring tape marked off in 1.3951 cms.

And thus Jim says very succinctly what was going through my mind.

John,

Please forgive my irony but, as in all games it is a matter of the theoretical against the practical. I have a set of rules for Napoleonic warfare that has a scale of 2.25mm to one yard. They are otherwise my favourite set of rules but why, for Heaven's sake, didn't they just go for one inch = ten yards?

It all boils down to the old Engineer versus the Mathematican premise: they are given a task where they have to reach and make love to a beautiful woman by moving only half the distance towards her as they did in the previous move.

The Mathematician says that you would never reach her and the task is impossible whereas the Engineer says that within four or five moves you would be close enough for all practicable purposes.

All the best, my Friend,


Jim
