Updated: 2020.01.23

Knowing the size and proportions of a miniature is important if you have an established collection you'd like to expand. Determining niniature size and miniature scale is often hard, as even the producing companies use confusing scale references.

While browsing through websites of companies that produce miniatures I often run into articles that are either trying to explain miniature scales the wrong way or complain that their customers demand to know what scale and size their products are.

In wargames the miniatures depict the people who fight battles. It depends on your philosophy how do they appear on the table.

The appearance of the miniature will be most important if the character you are trying to paint wears uniform or camouflage.

Appearance - Uniform & camouflage

Appearance - Gun barrels
