After a couple of weeks of, for me, careful deliberation and experimentation (including painting up some samples) I have finally settled of the scale I intend to use for my armies. In making this decision I have considered a number of factors but it is safe to say that he key one was the relative ease with which the chosen figures can be painted - especially important considering the painting technique I intend employing.
The scale I am opting to use (and the first small order will be on its way to Pendraken very shortly) is 10mm/N Gauge/1:150th. Aside from the painting aspect I considered the following:
- Cost - they are pretty cheap
- Choice - the range available is very extensive
- Size - large enough to paint but small enough to do quickly
- Ease of storage.
