What scale are the figures. I'm Looking for 28mm scale. If your not sure what 28mm is by looking at it, then a picture of a figure next to a ruler would also work. I just can't find the measurements listed on this website.

28-30mm I believe. Here's a comparison with some popular lines, near the bottom of the page. http://fgminis.blogspot.com/2006/10/modern-day-zombies.html

They are appropriately proportinged in miniature scale to reflect their 4' tall appearance. Read the fluff.

Don't you have 2 20-amp circuits to go make love to, Josh?

Metaluna, if you give me an idea of the figures you want to mix them with I may have some I can photo the zombies with. Let me know.

Thanks headzombie; I want to mix them with Zombies!!! the RPG. I'm looking for both zombie, military, and survivors (all 28mm). I also found figures for the RPG Last Night On Earth. They didn't even give measurments.


Others include:


1st Responder Zombies & Survivors Set (not yet available)

Caesar Miniatures

Eureka

THE DEAD WALK

Crocodile Games

Last Night On Earth.

Hasslefree Miniatures (different figurine)

You are going to find it hard to find figures that much the little plastic guys from Zombies!!! they are 25mm scale, which may not sound much smaller than 28, but it is!
My figures will most likely mix in with the rest, might be a touch bigger.

I'm not sure but I think I saw a picture with Caesar Miniatures and Zombies!!! together somewhere. Also, Last Night On Earth website doesn't say what scale their game pieces are. I think I'm going to try emailing them.

The Shotgun pawns and the zombie pawns from the Zombies!!! game are both approx 1/72 scale iirc, which is roughly equivelent to 25/28mm. One thinl a lot of people forget to take in account when comparing miniatures liek the Zombiesmith ones to the ones from the game Zombies!!! is the base thickness. The round slot bases are actually thicker and raise the figures up higher then the bases of the Zombies!!! figures, iirc I dont have any of my miniatures right in front of me at the moment.

Now for 25/28mm (both these scales for miniatures actually are seem to be used interchangeably, and are actually fairly compatible due to the differences in human height), if you want to use models of vehicles, then 1/48th, 1/50th or even 1/72nd scale vehicles will work. If you want to take in account the bases the figures are mounted on then vehicle models in the 1/48th and the 1/50th scale do look a tad better then the 1/72nd scale vehicles.

There is also the problem with the proportions. Figures that are the same height can still appear awkward when used together.

Metaluna- True, but if you look at real life, individuals who are the same height are also proportionately different.

The main problem with miniatures are the different sculptors all have their own styles. I personally like the variety, as it makes it look a little more realistic (you dont have 100's of zombies that all look the same like you do if you use the figures from Zombies!!!).

I think those are worthless now. I see them at Good Will and Salvation Army all the time. Sometimes at yard sales they can go as low as $0.25 a-piece.

I have always collected Mighty Max toys when I was a kid; and I still think they're cool, but I never really cared much about the play-sets as much as the little figures. I have one or two that look fairly well next to the Zombies!!! pieces. One of them is a zombie that is just slightly larger in proportion to the zombies from the RPG. I also have a guy that looks as if he is in a hasemat suit. Unfortunately, most are too big and look ridiculous next to the zombies.

Would it be a good idea to look for train set people? I'm not sure what scale those come in. I think they are, in most cases, even smaller.
