    In wargames in general what scale would you prefer to play with?

    I know most mainstream game are either in 15mm (Flames of War) 28mm (Warmachine/40k) and 25mm (Warhammer Fantasy)I've been looking at 20mm as a medium but isn't wholly popular these days in wargaming. 15mm maybe something I prefer in my own design yet it lacks the detial but ideal for larger games.I really like to know the reasons why people prefer a certian scale in the models in wargames.

    When I was stationed in Korea I almost got into Flames of War for two reasons:

    1. I love WW2
    2. Flames of War is close to HO scale

    But the single most reason I didn't get into it was because no English speaking people knew what the game was or what it was about. What was the point if I couldn't play with anyone? In retrospect, I should've picked up at least a set or something. I'd like to see how one of their deuce and a half trucks compares to HO scale... I'm trying to build a WW2 troop train.

    After re-reading the question, I realized I didn't answer your question. Honestly, I don't know since I've never played any of the above mentioned games. Many many moons ago I did play BrikWars, basically WarHammer but with Legos. You build ships and arm troops, then blow em up. Fun times.

    Enough outta me. What do I know about wargaming anyways? I normally live in the railroad section and play Army for reals. Kinda. I'm a mechanic. I don't kick in doors and do all the HOOAH schtuff. Just wrench on trucks and trailers. And ramble in Zealot forums.

    I prefer 25mm scale, from old D&D miniatures

    25mm. Interesting.

    I like 25mm because of the details and in Wargames they start taking up a lot of space when you try to play large games.

    Anyone know of high quality 15mm, 10mm and 6mm miniature manufacturers? I like to their models as references to guage the size and detial levels for my paper ones.
