So, when building Mordheim ruined houses and suchlike, approximately how tall do folks make a "floor"? IN other words, from the ground to the ceiling, how tall is each level of the houses you make? I've been experimenting with some crude buildings, but have been told my scale is off.

We use 3" as a standard height between floors. Looks okay and is quite playable. We always have a mini handy when making terrain (we call him "Barry") to make sure things look right.

I agree with the 3''. I've got a building that has space between 2 floors that isn't that high and it is very cramped looking. 3'' gives you plenty of room to play with and not look out of place/scale.

Thanks for the guideline. Off to make a blasted out house.
