I still have some 28mm warhammer guys sitting about, but I generally don't play anything bigger than 1/72

Personal logo The Beast Rampant Supporting Member of TMP15 Feb 2016 1:38 p.m. PST

I have considered 54mm for a period, but nothing ever came of it. So 'heroic 28/30/whatever mm' is as big as I've gone.

Black Hat Miniatures15 Feb 2016 1:53 p.m. PST

54mm :

North west frontier
Little Wars

I do have some 54 Brtians but they are too fragile to play with.

John Armatys15 Feb 2016 3:56 p.m. PST

28mm for horse and musket. Never going larger. Not gonna happen. 15mm for almost everything else.

I'll play anything, largest I collect is 15mm and even then I am not buying anything new.

Cmde Perry15 Feb 2016 6:17 p.m. PST

80mm (eye to top of base) nutcrackers to fend off the hordes of mice that invade at Christmastime. Since I have dozens of nutcrackers and only a handful of mice, the usual battle is nutcracker civil war.
