VFM Figures are what? and go with..?

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.

    The 1/48-1/50 range of vehicles is by far the most versitaile which allows you to buy model kits and die-cast toys from numerous sources. Tamiya, Bandai, Verlinden, Quarter Kit, Solido, Sunstar, Verum, Classic Armor Depot and many more companies make excellent vehicles, conversions and decals in this range. The more options for your gaming the better.
