Starting to play more and I was wondering do all the box sets have the game pieces in the same scale?
The short answer is “mostly yes”.� The longer answer is a bit more complicated.� From game to game, A&A sculpts have generally been on the same scale when you compare units belonging to the same unit class; in other words, specific sculpt X will generally be the same size no matter which game it comes from.� Within each class, however, scales can vary; for instance, the Yamato and Iowa battleship sculpts are roughly the same size, even though in reality Yamato was much bigger than Iowa.� There’s even more variation between unit classes, the most extreme case being the scale of the infantry sculpts and the scale of the battleship / carrier sculpts.�
There have also been some cases of scale changes for specific units.� The British and German battleship sculpts became larger and more detailed when many of the sculpts were “refreshed” at one point.� The German 88mm sculpt went from being small (and mis-representing field artillery) to being large (and correctly representing an AAA gun), and the same thing happened to the Stuka (which originally mis-represented a fighter rather than a dive bomber).� And note that the ANZAC infantry sculpt is somewhat notorious for being rather large compared with other infantry units.
Reading the reply I see I should have asked the question better. I should not have used the term scale as the pieces are different scales compared to each others but you fully understood what I was trying to say so thank you.
I will point out I had never thought about the different types of planes and guns that the sculpts are until you pointed it out so now I will have to go thru my games and compare them all. :-D I know I’m helpless and get sidetracked very easy maybe a little ADD on my part, but what else would I do tomorrow?
