We've talked endlessly about this many times before...	there's probably
lots in the list archives about it.
FWIW, my rules of thumb are:
15mm figs with 1/87 or 1/100 vehicles.
20mm figs with 1/72 or 1/76 vehicles.
"True" 25mm figs (eg: our stuff) with 1/60 vehicles
"Big" (GW) 25/28mm figures with 1/48 vehicles.
However, it's all SF, so you can be flexible - use whatever looks good!

They'll look a bit small.
