This is my review of Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi movie, a futuristic fantasy adventure movie from 2017. It's about the Resistance rebels defending against the First Order rebels. It's a visually nice movie, with great action scenes, without any substantial story or logic behind it. I was somewhat disappointed by the The Last Jedi film, but even I have to admit that Disney keeps the stories very even in quality.

Miniatures - A question of size and scale - Explaining miniature size and miniature scale
Zombie figures of different miniature scales

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.

Contents:

Miniature scales

Relative scale

Absolute scale

Relative "absolute" scale

Miniature proportions

Realistic proportions

Heroic scale proportions

Top-down proportions

Chibi proportions

Power proportions

Matching miniatures and scenery

Vehicle sizes and miniatures with bases

Miniature size & scales - Resources
