…Wargames figures are a means to an end and as they aren’t display pieces, then good enough from two feet away is fine.
I’ll third(?) that.
The question/issue is simply a matter of ‘what are you modeling?’
If it is the game/battle, then the 2-foot rule works (though I use a 3-foot-and-around-a-corner rule myself in honor of an old shop dictate).
That said, if I get involved in a particular figure (no matter the scale) I’ll happily ‘go to town’ on it, and put up with the suffering of anyone around the table coerced into bending down and looking ‘really close!’ to admire the details.
