1) I already had a lot of figures, vehicles & most importantly scenery in that scale for IABSM.
2) It was bang-on for the ground scale as intended.
3) It would enable me to fight over whole villages & sections of town, which in larger scales wouldn't be either possible for space or cost......
One of the biggest issues in gaming in this scale, is that unless you go for overlarge buildings, many of the ranges do not have lift-off roofs & showing figures as "inside" can be problematic. I'm not a fan of putting figures behind or next to buildings to show their occupation & many of the games we play as a group are done so without an umpire so telling someone who's where is not always an option either. With the forthcoming Benouville game having so many buildings involved, I was keen to come up with a solution.
Each building was given a letter on the plan. I then photographed each one 'top-down' to give a plan view & photo-shopped the identification letter onto it.
