ANYSCALE MODELS

QUICK GUIDE TO SCALE

Here are the 4 main scales we work in.

1:100 for 15 mm wargames figs.

1:72 for 20 mm wargames figs.

1:76 for OO railways.

1:56 for 28 mm wargames figs.

 

WARGAMES

There are hundreds of manufacturers out there producing all sorts of cool things.

Some figure companys have a wide variance in the actual height of figures produced compared to the size they say they are. It is worth while remembering this when purchasing vehicles, buildings and scenery.

Particularly vehicles. If you were to place 2 identical vehicle types produced by 2 different manufacturers side by side you might well see a marked difference. Whereas each vehicle on its own next to figures might look right. The way round this is never to position the same type of vehicle together from different manufacturers.

However with some items like our packing crates for instance. Some small crates for 28 mm figs can be used as large crates for 20 mm figs. Or large 20mm crates can work as small 28mm ones. Its always worth having a look.

 

RAILWAYS

For wargamers some latitude in sizes is acceptable and quite normal but the purist railway modeler working in 4 mm to the foot will be more demanding in their choice. After all you are trying to create a very realistic and accurate model and for this reason we dont make locos or rolling stock. We focus on Accessories and buildings in 1/76 scale. However some of our 1/72 scale wargames models will still work very well in many settings

Many of our items will even look good on an HO (1:87) layout. It just depends on positioning in relation to other models that are close by.

Dimensions for all our models are included on the website under each listing. This allows you to check that the model you are wanting is right for your project before you buy.

This simple table shows the scale/ratio next to the actual mm to the foot size for some of the more popular models around.
