Quarter scale is the stuff to go for

The quality of the match varies
More example poses are on my blog blackshawgaming.wordpress.com/2018/01/02/pulp-terrain-playing-with-dolls

Good Eye for scale:

Doll house furniture uses an old convention for "Scale" which is how many inches does to take to equal a foot.
This comes from architectural scale systems.
That is 1/4" would be 1/4" of model equals one foot of the prototype, or 1/48 scale, which happen to be fairly close to O gauge railroad scale as well.

For this old "Inch" scale system 1/8" would be 1/96 scale. Not bad for 15mm wargame figures.

This was something missed in the old TMP scale ref page: TMP link

This would make 20mm or 1/72 to be a 1/6" scale in this way of recording scale.

I tried joining a Quarter scale discussion group on Yahoo several years back. I wanted to see how much their hobby could be mined for neat stuff and, admittedly, I thought they might be interested in some of the miniatures I make, for use in dioramas and such.

After a week or so I was told that our kind, gaming miniatures people, weren't welcome on their discussion group as we would sully the vibe.

Perhaps they were right.

Bob: "We-all don' lak yer kahnd round 'chere."? Serves you right for insinuating yourself with your "betters".
Maybe if a bunch of us common gaming scum should join the group en masse and steer some of their threads away from the Holy Subject of Dollhouses, they might learn their lesson and be more neighborly?
