Thank you so much, everyone!

The stories in 28mm scale (which is Wargaming scale) I usually make 3 inches, although if it was scaled to real life, they should be 2 inches. The problem with that is that it never looks quite right next to figures, so a common practice in making miniature terrain is to build 3 inch stories for buildings.

The bricks are that age old technique of egg carton containers painted to look like brick - easy peasy but time consuming - not as time consuming as the roof, though! haha

So what is the 28mm equal to?  For instance, in 1" scale, 1 inch = 1 foot

And I routinely make ceilings much higher in 1" scale, too; otherwise it seems cramped, and you can't see the back of the room.  I suspect it's something to do with eye level.

I believe (and don't quote me here - lol) that it's around 1:58 scale

thanks, Arachnea!
I got even vague-er info by googling:  Wikipedia says "opinion on the actual scale of 28mm range from 1:48 to 1:64."

But I think what they mean by 28 mm is the figures are that tall.  Sort of.   The TMP forum says "the 28mm usually measures foot to eye not the whole figure height. Then the figure is on a base, another couple of mm, then probably another base for gaming."

Sheesh!  In real miniatures  Wink , we call that "ish" scale.  As in, "Quarter inch-ish."
