Then here is some stuff for Warmachine/Hordes.

Like the Malifaux stuff, the small models are on a 30 mm base, the larger ones on a 50 mm base

If you have a tool and aren't aware of what it can do, its dangerous. A jedi can do amazing things with a lightsaber. A roomful of chimps with lightsabers... would get messy.

I would guess, that the woman, with the overly large sword, stands about 35mm tall.
Most of the figures I work with stand 17.5 mm, and I use a brush that has had all but three bristles removed.
I use a 5X Optivisor, to see a little better.

These "passengers" and "crew" are all 1:87 scale, and the "adults",stand at the average height of 17.5mm.
It helps that I have been working in this scale for close to 60 years now.
It is said that "practice makes perfect".
I would have to question that - - - even after all those years of "practice", I'm still a long way away from anything "perfect" :o ;) :) "Good enough ? " - - maybe. Perfect? :( NOT

This picture is part of a scene on one of the four modules I'll have at Trainfest, in Milwaukee, Nov. 8,9.
The lobster pots, are laser cut wood kits in 1:87 scale. I just finished two dozen more, for the pile on the dock, and another pile on the sloop.

I'm still trying to come up with a "visitor", that would look right in the 1:87 scale environment........I'm beginning to suspect that it will have to be "scratch build time" - - - or maybe "junk build time" ;) :twisted:
