Review - Alien vs Predator: The Hunt Begins Ed1 board game base set from Prodos Games

The production company says the miniatures are 28mm scale models. The marine models are 33mm high to the top of their helmets in a combat pose, so they would be probably 35mm high if they were standing upright. If we assume they are 180-185cm high in combat boots and helmet, it makes them 1/52-1/53 scale models, closer to 1/50 than 1/56. I suppose the Xenomorph and Predator models are in scale with the humans.
