Saw this on TTGN this morning - Sails of Glory

Granted, it's not until summer 2012, but I wonder if the ships will match size-wise.

For those who've seen the DreadFleet game, any estimate on the scale of the pieces?. Sails of Glory are going for 1:1200, which matches the Langton pieces. It would be nice if GW was the same, but history suggests otherwise  :'(

Gw gave me the idea that it was too small for epic, nearer 6mm, so 1/300?

Epic IS 1/300-ish, isnt it?

Yo, Pops, I imagine you're so old that you used to play with those Hairficks figures back in the day.

Must be hard to see all those young people have kids, age, go grey, forget they already have troops for that game and increase their figure size from 10mm to 28mm because they can't see them.   :'(

I'll let you know if it happens to me.  :o

Oh oh.  I started with 25/28mm figures.  This could be bad...

Got my copy today.  You can say what you like about GW policies and practices but when it comes down to it, they really have upped the ante on plastic miniatures.  The details on the models really have to be seen to be appreciated, the mat is beautiful and the rulebook and cards are first class productions.  No idea how it'll play but I'll definitely give them high marks for presentation.
