I recently ordered some 3D printed old west miniatures at 28mm scale. When I hold them up to Knuckleduster minis, they seem just a bit small.

Anyone recommend 32mm size? I can order the same minis 3D printed in 32mm.

Are old west miniatures more commonly sized at 28mm or 32mm?

Let me know?

Black Scorpion are 30mm but I think they are more like 32mm.
Most Old West are 28mmmm but 30mm-40mm are used as well.

Most of my 'Old West' stuff is a mixture of classic Wargames Foundry & Old Glory Gunfighters (…probably purchased in the last millenium to be fair!!)
However, they are substantially smaller than Black Scorpion miniatures, and indeed most of the more modern ranges…

There are some nice printed Old West miniatures available on Ebay which would probably be a good match for Black Scorpion at 'heroic' scale (or 32mm) – but they would need to rescale them to 25mm to match the Foundry range.

Wargames manufacturers differing scales is a constant source of annoyance!!

I refuse to stock 32mm since they have poor sales.
