Hi i have been thinking of making some buildings (for the first time) until i get some models and need help with measurements for doors windows etc as i dont have anything to compare them to. Thank you in advance.

I did a quick measure on a building in progress: 60mm from floor to ceiling; doors: 40mm X 25mm; windows: 25mm X 10mm. I originally chose these dimensions simply because it look "right" with the minis. Have FUN with the modeling! I Need Measurements Fresse

My pleasure. If you'd like to check out a typical build [I did this one for matt], you can see one here: https://boringmordheimforum.forumieren.com/scenery-f13/building-by-deafnala-t1237.htm . You cn't really see the front door all that well, but you can get an idea how the minis match up size-wise with the window. I Need Measurements Fresse

I usually make mine somewhat smaller, but it depends on the models you're using I guess... I only use humanoids (no orcs or such) and therefore I gave my town a bit of a human feel to it.. so my floors are 2" high (which makes it great for climbing and jumping down without restraint)

For measurements I just position a model in the doorway I'm about to build, and see how it fits, then I build the rest of the building from there on... (of course, now I have my buildings ready, I don't need to measure every time...

you need to be very carefull if you are using models with raised weapons. I made a house using a more "relaxed" model and then found that my "dramaticly posed" models wouldnt fit!
