    As the title says: What gaming period do you do in the most scales?

    Fantasy and scifi count as a period here.

    Note that it needs to be scales within the same area (land/air/sea/space)). Obviously your skirmish infantry games and naval battles are different scales (or are they??) so that doesn’t count 🙂

    WW2 Land: 6mm, 15mm and 28mm. Not impossible that 20mm and 54mm will be added to that.

    Science Fiction: 3mm, 6mm, 12mm, 15mm, 28mm.

    WW2 Land – 2mm, 3mm, 6mm, 10mm, 15mm, 20mm, 28mm

    WW1, 6,15 and 20mm. Until last year it would have been WW2,, but I sold or gave away most of my 20mm and 54mm WW2 stuff,, leaving just 6 and 15mm. I do have a few 20s left for nostalgia sake.

    At some point I’ll rationalise WW1 down to just 6mm and 15mm as well.

    I generally only do 1 period and scale/size at any given time.
    However like some sort of deranged oddball I am doing fantasy in both 12mm and 28mm…
    Same rules of course, lets not get too carried away.

    I think I may be an outlier here- every single period I do is in one scale only- 25-28mm/1:56. I point-plank refuse to consider any other scale of figure. My interests are pretty simple, though.

    • Late Dark Ages/Early Medieval (so basically from about 900 AD to 1250-ish AD) which can also be used for Fantasy
    • Fantasy
    • Colonial (1879-ish NW Frontier)
    • Early 20th Century, so from the Boxer Rebellion & Anglo-Boer War to the end of WW2 (Bolt Action), which all feeds into:
    • Alternate History/Sci-Fi (VBCW or 1946/Operation Unthinkable)

    Napoleonics. 2, 6, 15 and 28mm. Plus some in between…

    Depends on what you classify as a ‘Period’. Mostly I do a single scale/size for a period but some of the rules I use stretch over a few centuries and overlap others timewise. Not sure I’d agree with ‘Colonial’ being a period – I hardly see Conquistadors & Zulu or Boer Wars as the same period.

    Even with that I doubt I do any in more than 2 scales/sizes.

    WW2 in 3mm (1 base = company) & VBCW in 20mm (1 base = section)

    I have a Pirate/Buccaneer/Cimarron force in 10mm for Irregular Wars rules (used for anything around the Caribbean 1600-1800) and a 1: 1 skirmish collection in 28mm. Very different games.

    Zulu Wars in 6mm & Conquistadors/Mesoamericans & early Colonial Americas/First Nations in 10mm (Irregular Wars again).

    I was going to say WW2 land with 6mm, 20mm and 54mm but realise I have small collections of SF land stuff in 6mm, 15mm, 20mm and 28mm.
