    I don’t understand the degree to which people worry about the comparative heights of figures. Don’t they ever look at people in the street? Human adult males that could conceivably be in a fight vary from 5 feet tall or less to 7 feet tall and from 9 stone to 20 stone in weight. What matters more is the different sculpts of standardized weaponry – different makers produce SMLEs that look very different for example. In dark age or ancient gaming the more we get away from 5 foot 9 inch tall clones carrying identical swords the better. I love mixing manufacturers it makes the painting much more interesting.
