Anyone know how the Baccus 6mm compare in size to GHQ?

Many more opinions available if you look.

It appears Baccus is clsoer to 1/250. Every comparison I've seen shows a quite noticeable difference.

Yes, the Baccus vehicles are huge, they dwarf all other '6mm' ranges.

Bigger than GHQ 1:285?

Hmmm! See what you mean. Very chunky. Shame was hoping they would mix well.

As noted above, Baccus are around 1/250. Not what most people would regard as 6mm at all.

1/250th Scale converts to 7.2mm size. (Assuming 6 feet of real measurement)

1/285th scale converts to 6.32mm size.

1/300th scale converts to 6.00 mm size.

Baccus figures match their vehicles. Warlord Epic scale is 13mm size. So "scale" is not always consistent as it depends on who the sculptor/designer is. AFAIK, there is no one single sculptor/designer doing them all. So either you stick with your favorite producer of SIZE and accept what that maker offers or else accept the size difference in your collection.

+1 @Dye4minis,

And definitely worth considering in that context that no manufacturer of WW2 6mm miniatures does it all, so even if you pick one manufacturer only for size consistency, you are going to be proxying and/or not playing scenarios you would otherwise like to. You have to compromise somewhere.
