You were asked – TMP link

What's the best scale for games centered around Mecha?

43% said "6mm"
7% (tie) said "10mm" OR "15mm"
6% said "3mm or smaller"

That's because most mechas in 1/285 scale is approximately 28mm tall.

6mm Rules !!!! Unless it's GW's … now it's 8mm … evil grin Which is more in scale with their original 6mm Inf, Tanks, etc. As the original Mechs/Titans was 1/500 with is more like 3mm … huh?
