To go with large or medium scale, you will need 3" (9" square) bases for each tank and for an industrial complex. Aircraft will need 2.5" bases (which is pushing it for Bombers that really should have 3" bases at large scale). Infantry will need 1.5" bases, which is 2.25" square (which is also pushing it for large stands like figures crouching or prone). Still, fitting one of each like tiles you need 32.75" square, about 5.7" x 5.7." To triple the space for 3 of each unit, that's 98.25," or about 9.9" x 9.9", Allowing another 32.75" square, so that the area looks like the representation of a country rather than a parking lot, that's 131 square inches, or about 11.5" x 11.5" That's just Germany. Assume Britan, Southern Europe, Western Europe, and Ukraine will all need at least that much area, and that Spain/Portugal will have to look proportionate, that's 786" square for Europe, or 28" x 28". Assume North America, the North Atlantic, South America, the South Atlantic, and Africa are each the area of Europe, that's 4,716 square, or about 68" x 68". Assume Asia and the Pacific are each three times the area of Europe, and that a sea zone equal to Europe's size goes under asia, that's 10,218 square inches, an area of 101" x 101," or roughly 8' x 8'. Make that a rectangle and it's 4' x 12'.
Thanks for any input!
I figure on a 5 x 12 foot board, cut into six sections 2.5 by 4 for transportation. I was just wondering if my general sizing calculations are right, given the base sizes I'm using.
