Hmm? I have more trouble transporting the dirtside forces than I do 
the Star Grunt forces. 1/300 allows for sooo much more terrain and 
features as well as objectives. There is room for the city, factory 
complex, shuttle port, tank farm, agricultural areas and rivers on a 
table before you even start putting figures out. And lets not forget 

A good 25mm game can be fought with some trees and a few hills and 
fighting positions in a defensive engagement. The most you'll need is 
a light company of troops if you really get big. One case works for 
this. I've got a 12 companies worth of 1/285 and 1/300 scale stuff 
for good battles plus infantry.

1 cabinet does not hold an Army. Maybe an under strength battalion. 
But not an army. You make SUV comments when you can't even stop from 
using the GamesWork$hop terminology (50 figures does not an army 
make, 20 ships does not a fleet make)

So there! :-b
