Size matters

One of my earlier posts talked about the importance of estimating range, and some techniques to help you guess distances on the fly.  Naturally I’m not the first nor the last person to have considered this part of the game, and I thought it might be useful to share some of the better articles I’ve seen on the topic.  Hopefully you can find an approach in the mix below that will help you on the field of battle:

A further piece of work on my ‘to do’ list is to publish the dimensions of some fairly standard tabletop stuff.  This will help by giving some references on the board that you can use to estimate distance.  I’ve started here with standard base sizes:

When I get the opportunity I’ll add the dimensions of some common vehicles, e.g. Rhino, Landraider, Chimera etc and put them all up in a single document in my Resource section.

That’s all for now; I’ve been travelling round the world for the past while, but that should calm down from this October onward – so hopefully I can get back to a more regular update schedule!

PS if anyone has the time and inclination, then please do post up any vehicle dimensions that you know in the comment section, and I’ll collate them.
