Mil - French 1800s Cannon

A bit odd to start this new section with an exception, but the cause is simply lack of the correct measures for a Carolean cannon. This is instead a french cannon from the 1800s I found the measures for, to start with until I get the swedish ones. The..

Mil - Scale Trials

Napoleon was 169 cm long, or in mm  1.690. Since wargame figures are calculated from toe to eye, we need to take of about 10cm from the length to compensate for the upper half of the head. 1.590 / 28 makes a 28mm figure 1:56 scale ...
