The rules sound intriguing, the layout is attractive and the game sounded interesting. Just curious, what is the scale?

Not to jump in here CAPTAIN, but I believe that those are 15mm Outpost miniatures.

Splendid looking game, btw.

CAPTAIN, I just realized that you may have meant ground scale or unit representation. I apologize if I just complicated your question.

nope 15mm sounds good.

@Paul Collins is correct. Those are 15mm figures from Outpost. As for figure/ground scale, each base is 100-150 men (so 4 bases = 1 battalion), and 3" = c250yards.

Thanks for the compliments on the look of the game. The area concerned, which is a representation of the nitrate mining area of the Atacama, is very open and flat, so it is easy to represent, but not so easy to make it look interesting. Hence the llamas and pampas grass counters.
