Ok I have a question to ask my esteemmed gaming community.

I have a large Battletech collection.  I don't do vehicles or convential infantry, so I only have Mechs and Battlearmor.

I want to create some nice terrian for my battles and I was wondering if I should be looking at 10mm terrian to truely macth the minis.

or is 6mm close enough for government work

Hi!

I had the understanding that BT was 7-8mm scale. SO I think 10mm terrain would be slightly large, but 6mm terrain slightly small and perhaps more appropriate.

Hi Luis,

For the regular line of Battletech figures, 6mm terrain is best.

Epic tends to look better with 6mm rather than 10mm terrain.

For the "Clickie Tech TM" minis, 10mm or N-scale terrain is better.

Although, like many models, some pieces should be evaluated individually. There's an N-scale refinery that looks amazing in 6mm. I think that Walthers makes it.

Shalom,
Maksim-Smelchak.

Also, you should consider if the battle armor troops should be too big to fit through the doors or small enough to go through
