DP,

Great looking set up.  I also go for 6mm buildings with 10mm units for exactly the same reasons.  However, that said, I would agree that the closer you get to a 1:1 figure to man ratio, the stronger the argument becomes for the use of 10mm buildings.  At present my APW figures are at about 1:20.  For certain scenarios I may go to 1:10, and may then have to rethink the building scale.

With Horse and Musket armies 6mm buildings seem to look right - they are taller than the troops, and you can get a few in the right area for the troops.

Yep, but most of these buildings were scratchbuilt.

Looks great Dour Puritan! Cool

Does anyway have some 10mm building with troops like Dour's to give a comparison?

Actually built by a mate of mine who is an architectural model-maker by profession. And it shows!

Get's my vote. Great sense of scale. Good one, Ray!

To come back on this - a town in SYW period seems to work best in 6mm (also use this scale for C19th as well). That said I use 10mm buildings with my Dux Britanniarum figures as there are generally fewer figures used in those games, even where three 10mm figures represent one 28mm figure.

Is the link to the Batrep for my Nachod game with Paperterrain 6mm buildings.  As per the many previous post, I think it depends on the scale of your game.  This was 1 stand equals 300 men and 1" equals 100 yards so 1 - 10mm building would have been huge.

I have some of those buildings too - looks like you actually folded up the chimneys too! I must admit I gave up on that...  Embarrassed

With my Late Romans I'll go with 10mm as I think it will work just right for that. If and when I do anything with horse and musket I think 6mm will be the right way to go.

Great looking board Tom! Cool
