Game Scale...???

I'm a newbie around here, so if this as been asked & answered my apologies (I tried to find the answer with the SEARCH function but was unsuccessful).

What is the HS game scale (1/144; 25mm; 38mm)
Does Hasbro list an official 'scale' for the game
(If they do I haven't been able to find it. )

And how does that match up to other miniture games

And how close is it to the HO train scale

The reason I ask, is because I've been looking online at miniture accessories to liven up my setup's but I'm not sure just what scale to purchase them in.

I think I've read that it is 32mm. At any rate, you might enjoy this thread: http://www.heroscapers.com/community...read.php?t=132

Ahhhh, thanks Aldin.

BTW, thank you very much for the hearty welcome in the other thread.

I meant to reply there but ran out of time earlier tonight (Fri) cause of a dinner date with the GF.

Anyway... BLTN,

A Hearty Hi-Ho Silver to you Aldin.

OK, thanks to Aldin I've done some more fine-tuned internet searching and a fair amount of internet reading about "Scale" and minitures in general & have come to the conclusion that the HS figures are in a scale approximately equal to 25mm to 30mm (1/72 to 1/64 scale).

This equals about 1 to 1.5 inches, which seems to be the average standard size range of most of the 'Medium' size HUMAN figures in the game.

I measured about 25 of the MEDIUM HS Human Figures from the bottom of their feet (the flat surface of the base) to the top of their heads (not to upraised arms or tips of weapons held up, nor any figures that were hunched over.) & they were between 1" & 1 1/2".

I found this web page which was very informative & pretty much locked it down for me.

http://www.thortrains.net/scale1.htm

Thanks again, Aldin.

(BTW: HO Scale is = to 20mm or about 3/4 of an inch which = 1/87 scale.)

This was just discussed less than a week ago - ref: http://www.heroscapers.com/community...603&highlight=

Last week I sent them to this tread
http://www.heroscapers.com/community...ighlight=scale because there was some debate about 28 & 30 mm.

Re: Game Scale...???

What size are the hexes? I'm trying to print hex base map to use with/under my heroscape terrain, and I cannot get the hex measurements right so that the terrain fits nicely over the base-map.
