  • 28mm is 1:66
  • 29mm is 1:64, as well as rail modelling S-gauge and Micro-Scalextric.

28mm was introduced as a wargaming scale by Games Workshop, with many people believing it was done to make their figures incompatible with any other manufacturer’s figures, thereby tying GW gamers to just one manufacturer.

Unfortunately for GW, and for 25mm purist gamers, it did not take long for other companies to introduce “scale-drift” into their designs. It is a tribute to GW that the scale has become so popular today, despite the increased cost of figures and supporting models.

A fraction larger than 28mm wargaming scale is the far-older rail modelling S-Gauge, which at 1:64 is equivalent to a 29mm wargaming scale.

Another modelling system that uses the 1:64 size is Micro Scalextric, making the various hobbies’ components interchangeable and introducing some interesting scenarios – what would happen using AK-47 rules with a terrorist attack and kidnap attempt at a Formula event, being just one example where model cross-overs could increase gaming options.

Long Range Logistics 28mm Ranges

Long Range Logistics currently has no models specifically designed for 28mm scale. As with 20-25mm, several of our uniScale models do bridge this sizing, and generic pieces (such as our field walling system, 2-arch buttressed bridge, and 2-room ruined cottage) scale up to fit with 28mm.

We will be designing 28mm scale / 1:64 building ranges in the future, but do not yet have a start date for this. We’d like to hear from our customers about which styles, eras, genres, they would like us to look at producing in 28mm, so we can start compiling design lists.

One particular series we are thinking about is for 28mm Mordheim gaming.  Being in the Orient, we have plenty of inspiration for some more unusual room settings, for example from the ruins of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, or the Terracotta Army museum at Xi’an in China. Please let us know what you think about these ideas.
