The Slammers games I do (Slammers the Crucible) are what I’d term ‘mostly’ in scale. Buildings are 15mm or thereabouts (some are model railway ‘N guage’: see below) but not chosen for foot print but merely for availability and convienience of purchasing options.

Ground scale is ‘mostly’ 1/100th: shooting HMGs (or the equivalent) down the length of a 36ft table at Salute raised some eyebrows a few years ago (and you really did need a laser pointer!) but it works.

Other games? Well, if I’m playing Star Fleet Battles (though it’s been a decade or so) or Silent Death, say, no one expects the ‘ground scale’ for a space ship to be realistic, do they?
