    Bah.  1:10,000 (1″ hex = 250m) is the true Panzer Leader scale.  😀

    Oh, I forgot … those games are “silly.”

    for a man who came up with Darkstar that seems like a very large scale there Jim 🙂

    Oh God, I don’t even know what “scale” Darkstar would be.

    Eh … 1.5″ hexes (physical map) = 180 kilometers.

    39600 inches in a kilometer (approximating 3.3 feet per meter).

    26,400 hexes (1.5″ hexes) per km

    x180km per hex = 1:4.75 million.

    That is NOT QUITE 0.0004mm, less than 4/10,000 of one millimeter, or less than 0.4 microns.

    And yes, Darkstar is a tactical wargame.  Once you get into operational wargames, scale isn’t even an issue.
