And like any respectable gamer, I knew the only solution was to buy models in two scales--1/600 and 1/1200. I've posted a picture gallery here to compare the two scales. My 1/600 ships are gorgeous sculpts from Thoroughbred, while the much smaller 1/1200 models are Houston's ships, distributed by Stone Mountain. You're free to judge for yourself, but in a 6mm grand tactical game, I much prefer the size of the Houston ships. For exclusive Ironclad gaming (our club enjoys Peter Pig's "Hammerin' Iron" rules), we love using Thoroughbred. Click on any photo in the gallery below to expand into a larger image!
