20mm Figure Sizing Differences

From a Newsgroup Article by Robert Burke (2003).

A quick summary of his findings using the measurement of bottom of foot gear to eyes (Tobey Barrett measurement system):

True 20mm figures

Manufacturer Boots-to-Eyes measurement
RSM 20mm
Batallienfeur 21mm
Newline (UK) 20mm
The Complete Brigadier 20mm
Ultimate Miniatures (Scruby 20mm) 20mm

Large (English) 20mm figures

Manufacturer Boots-to-Eyes measurement
Hinton Hunt (Der Kriegspielers) 23mm
Kennington (UK) 23mm
Qualiticast (UK) 23mm
It Figures (UK) 21mm
Ultimate Miniatures (Scruby 25mm) 23mm

1/72 scale is also considered (large) 20mm if measured from bottom of footgear to "assumed" top of head. 1/72 means 1 inch equals 6 feet, and 1 inch is 25.4mm. This assumes a 6-footer which, for most men of the Napoleonic period, is "over-size".
