One is for the simple look of the figures on the table. One can marvel at the detail without the need to squint or bend down as though trying to make oneself better understood to a 4 year old child. Even with the 18mm AB figures I struggle to see what is what. Large formations of 28mm figures would require a table of gigantic proportions and frankly I think the overall look of 28mm can appear a little ridiculous. A little like those budget war movies made in the early 1980s where a battalion of infantry was represented by about two dozen extras. Just doesn't work.
It remains to be seen if the French 2nd Hussars and Polish Krakus Cossacks (from Art Miniaturen) will be a match for the Austrian Cuirassiers. (also Art Miniaturen) Campaign map also shown.
