    HI All,
    new to this site and a returning figure painter

    I used to paint tabletop gaming figures, moved away from that to static modelling (planes and cars( and am now getting interested in going back into figure painting.

    I am mainly interested in Ancient and medieval figures.

    my question is this, I like to look of both the 54mm and 75mm scales, can someone please list the positives and negatives of both

    also is 54mm equal to 1/32 scale and 75mm equal to 1/24 scale

    any info you can provide will be most appreciated

    cheers

    Hi Gary

    A BIG WELCOME to PF

    Good to have you with us , look forward to your posts

    Feel free to ask anything ...someone will know !

    As for scales , I only paint busts but in both 54 and 75 there are great sculpts and with resin being mainly used casting is excellent

    My thought is some prefer either but as a bigger size allows painters to see better 75 is preferred

    Very much a personal preference

    Why not also ask the question in the Lounge part of PF as well

    Happy benchtime

    54mm or 1/32

    not equals in size
    54mm means thet all figures; all period are 54mm high from the sole to the eyes
    1/32 means that all actual size are reduced by 32 a guy of 1m80 reduced to 56,5mm from the sole to top of the head; a guy of 1m60 reduced to 46,87 mm, alas the vast majority of set makers in 1/32 believes thet all men are 1m80

    Hi Gaz,

    I still predominantly paint Wargame 28mm, but do venture into 54, 75mm and 200mm busts.

    It really depends upon what turns you in, the period you like, and how skilled you are at detail. The larger the scale the higher the detail.

    My two cents

    Cheers
