This is why I went to 15mm.

You mean true 15mm or 18mm or 15/18mm?

This is kind of a Old Fart vs Young Whippersnapper question.

What do you call that "scale"?

I came into The Hobby&tm; in 1974, roughly. No Scrubys. No Airfix. I jumped into the deep end with Minifigs, Lamming, Hinchliffe, Garrison, etc.

We didn't have none of them fancy 28mm figures. We recognized that some ranges, like Essex, SKT, even some new Hinchliffe and so on, were a leetle bit larger, but we still called them "25mm".

Then, in 1986 came my ten-year marital hiatus from wargaming. When I came back, I was surprised to hear and see talk of "28mm" figures. To me, it meant that they did not fit on WRG Ancients bases, despite the sputtering denials on PB, et al. It also meant that if I wanted to buy the fancy new AWI figures, I would have to rethink my basing scheme, based on 1776 and The Complete Brigadier.

Now that everything is rebased (with a lot of scar tissue on my thumbs), I happily play withj 25mm and 28mm on the same table. What? Ya gotta problem with that?

Anyway, to me that scale will always be 25mm. What do you call "that scale"?
