I've been gradually building a collection of the 4Ground 10mm SF 'Jesserai' urban buildings and I was wondering how well they scale with 6mm SF miniatures – although I got them with Dropzone Commander in mind, I've been more recently looking at some of the stuff from Brigade and Darkest Star but I don't know if they would look stupidly small next to the buildings. Has anyone used them with 6mm models?

Not sure why it doubled up my message AND my post lol.

My theory is and Editor Bill doesn't agree its double tapping, and I try not to and it seems to be panning out, had a double post but that was because I tried to fix it and that didn't work.

But as to your OP, I like down a size to minimize the footprint of the building. Up 1 size in buildings I would think would be ok if just for the visual

Yeah, most 10mm buildings will just about work for 6mm figures. Doors and such look a little off to those of us with forms of OCD :D but otherwise OK.

Yep definitely works

I've got their District 1 Bank which I used for a 6mm scenario based om a throwaway paragraph in a Bolo story
Plenty of room on each floor for infantry to go toe to toe

14Bore I think you are correct about the double post.

I wait, sometimes seems to take a long time but it doesn't double.

And then I have had posts double when I edit a post

Using upscaled buildingscan create a cyclopean, Joel Schumaker-ish "Batman" kind of city.

Most 10-12mm structures work pretty with 6mm. Anything larger depending on it's design may need, e.g. smaller doors and windows, etc. But again not always based on what structure is. I've done it a few times. Converting 15mm and 25mm to 6mm …
