Size Matters Not

Thanks, Yoda.  One of the great things about MFZ is that we are not limited to a particular scale by the playing pieces (Can we really call them miniatures?) that we use.  There is a continuum across which we can express our preference for play.  All that matters is that the playing pieces be distinct and sturdy enough to stand up to the rigors of play.  While the main choices seem to be 4P and 7P, the latter of which is the nominal scale for the game as published, I've seen battle reports from people who play at 2P scale though!

All of which is a long way of introducing one of my latest creations, the Nano Frame.  I'm declaring this guy to be 1P scale.  Which means that it's 54 feet tall in scale.  Not bad for something three bricks tall.

I have photos of alternate viewing angles at my Brickshelf gallery.

While the Frame designs provided with the MFZ rulebook are 7P scale, maybe it's time to start looking at some of the other scales and seeing how they might look on the gaming table.  I know I use the microfig a lot as a size reference as that's an easy way to establish a 6P scale.  Take a crack at it and see what you come up with.

    1. I wouldn't call a sum total of one frame a cult. :-)
