Got these sprayed up the other day. Sizewise, most of them are between 20-25mm from bottom of foot to top of head. Eg the frog/ toad is 22mm.

Re: Moving into difficult terrain

When moving comes down to such minuscule amounts do you find arguments break out over a few mms as they become all the more important when seeing if close combat happens?

Re: Increased Playing Area

when you decide to play with those combined actions (from the optional rules), a sort of spontaneous coherency will establish itself. and who knows, maybe they're even a bit expanded in the full rules ;) One of the ideas that Carl and I have frequently discussed is the sort of rules that encourage ...
