Sometimes I am asked, what scale are the VFM figures and what scale of model vehicles do I need? VFM Figures stand between 28- 32mm tall and are designed to go with 1/48 and 1/50 scale vehicles, and they are used in “28mm” gaming.
28mm is a reference to the type of gaming, as compared to 20mm, or 15mm gaming. It is not a scale, but a term that is useful to give a reference point to the size of figures and terrain needed, as well as the type of rules used.
So the figures are for 28mm gaming and go with 1/48 and 1/50 scale model vehicles, even though the figures are closer to 30mm tall. Confused? Thats okay, a 2×4 board at the lumber yard is not actually 2″ x 4″.
So if you need terrain or vehicles for your VFM game, use 1/48 or 1/50 scale and you will be doing fine.
