Does anyone have any idea how well the Vanguard 3mm figs scale with the Dystopian Wars terrain? I have a pile of it and was curious if it would work for Dominion

Dystopian Wars is 1:1200 scale right?

No clue really. I’m sure it’s not the exact scale. I just wanted to know if anyone had used 9r seen it with the figs. Sometimes things work even if they aren’t the correct mathematical scale

They feel about 2mm scale to me. They’re going to scale small against Vanguard figures if you’re aiming for 1:1 realism.

That is my suspicion as well. Probably would have to base the terrain on the same MDF in any case

If you want buildings that scale "true" against Vanguard 3mm, I recommend the Vanguard/Gegster's Lab buildings, or Bigade 6mm scale. For ruins I recommend Gamecraft Miniatures at 6mm scale. They'll be closer to "real" scale.

That said, a lot of the Dystopian Wars stuff works great if you like your urban terrain to scale small, more like a tabletop texture than an accurate building-for-building replica of a city. For that DW and Brigade 2mm will do you a better job.

I'd think they'd work together well generally ...

Actually I though of that when first receiving the prototype castings.

How's this.
