This is a short one. It might be useful though. Just a couple of days ago, Ghoul posted a link to a web store carrying model figures of various kinds and scales. I’m not sure whether theses are primarily produced, to people diaoramas and other model scenery, they apparently make great gaming miniatures and seem to be rather cheap when compared to those that are marketed as proper gaming minis.
So here’s the link: https://plastic-models-store.com/. I like the 13-12th Century Sea People for example. Scales are given as usual for scale models, i.e. 1/72, 1/100 and so on, not in those mm scales, gamers are more used to. So here are some handy conversions:
|Gaming Figure Size||Scale Model Size||Model Railway Gauge|
|15 mm||1:100||roughly TT Scale|
|28 mm||1:64||S Scale, Matchbox and Hot Wheels Cars|

If you think something is missing from this list, just add a comment. I guess, I’ll add to this post now and then, anyway.
Scales in general
Wikipedia has two interesting pages about model scales:
