Yes I would fight them "here or there, I would fight them anywhere."

Apologies to Dr Seuss.

To be honest typically I like a mix, in the early days at 1/72 you have little option but to do urban terrain . If the ground scale is to far out, fields supposed to be 600m and only 1 ft on the board looks daft to me with 1/72 tanks. With 1/144 minis you can get a field to look like a field not a pen and get both tanks and infantry in if the terrain is reasonable.

I would love to try a mountain pass but those sort of elevations are not really possible without very specialist terrain and its not worth the effort as far as I am concerned.

I am also a 1/72 guy, although mostly horse and musket – so no tanks. once you wrap your head around the fact that 18 men represent 600 then the scale is better.

COL Scott ret to be honest Horse and Musket rules do better, the terrain is more open, in most places. Its only in Broitain that the |Light infantry was born as by then the UK was getting to "busy" to deploy large numbers of traditional line troops. Unfortunately some tank games dont seem to grasp such basics.
