Gents,

I may have over-complicated this.

When gaming in 28mm scale , do players generally use what the rules stae and multiply the U by 1.5 cm or do they simply replace cm for inches.  Thus instead of LC moving 12cm in 15mm scale it is now 12 inches in 28mm (instead of 18cm)?

Calculating everything by 1.5 whilst umpiring five players was/is doing my head in!

Cheers

Carlo

We just use inches in 28mm instead of centimeters

One U is 2 cms in 28mm Australian competition.

That is an oddly complex sentence.


Of course, the easy way is to buy a dedicated Impetus ruler as from Aetherworks

Aetherworks Impetus products

You can even personalise them.

We moved from a U=1" a few years back to U=2cm. It does make a difference in the way the game plays on the table as it shrinks everything by 20%.

I remember that discussion Gaius a few years back. Makes quiet a difference especially when playing on 6x4 tables in 28mm.
Yep 1U=2cm is the way to go Carlo.

I'm still jealous of your gladii and your VIP status, Richard. The Cursus Honorum on this forum is a Via Dolorosa for me.

One day, I hope be issued with a spear, at least.

Wow! Ask and ye shall receive. I've just been bumped up to VBU 3. My hundredth post and I hadn't noticed.

I now have enough VBU to ride with my Turkomen CL. I still have a nil reputation. They obviously know my abilities.
