I am currently running a ADnD 2 edition game and trying to use mini's and terrain, but I'm having a hard time calculating distances and scale. I found a web page for converting scale and set up an Microsoft Excell document to figure it for me as I enter either inches to feetyards. I am using Reaper Legends minis.

The web site is.

Using 1:28 scale to calculate from. The problem I'm having is that my short ranges (less than 20 yards) seems accurate enough but, the more the range increases I get huge results in inches.

Here is a list of some standard ranges scaled down to inches.

10ft = 4.23 in

10yd = 12 in

25ft = 10.7

25yd = 32

50 ft = 21in

50 yd = 64

100 ft = 42.8

100 yd = 128.5

Even though my math seems to be correct, I can't help but think that this is way off.

I can email my excel 2003 document to anyone willing to take a look at it, and see if they can findfix where I went wrong. Just send me an email at

Any help or ideas would be appreciated.
