I think one of the first conversations I ever had with Nix was about scale size. There are numerous scale sizes, ranging from the very small (Z-scale 1: 220) to the larger scale of 1:24 G-Scale (German Scale). I made my miniatures in varying sizes, starting out with HO scale, which is 1:87, meaning a human figure would be three-fourths of an inch high. This is a common train hobbyist size, which is very small, and also very affordable. When I told Nix about my small scale sizes, so they fit on my desk, she thought I was crazy. She works in a much larger scale for her miniatures, and her sets can be as large as six feet wide and four feet high. Often she bases her scales around the objects contained within the picture; in her picture titled "Majestic" there is a miniature piano, which dictated the scale.
