Found these by coincidence - and I like them a lot! Fits right into a modern or superheroic city setting. Check them out for yourselves (maybe they have already been posted here, but I looked and didn't see them anywhere).

Good question. According to Google translate, they are 135 mm tall for a 10 story building model, which I guess places them close to 6mm scale. Whether they can be enlarged without getting too blurry remains to be seen. I may buy one or more, just because I think they look cool. Maybe some of our Polish members can enlighten us?

Wow! Great find Cardstock Dane. And a blast from the past for some of us... aah sweet childhood!
These buildings show examples not only from Warsaw but also from Poznan (Miasto Blok-how series) modernism housing of 1970-to-80s. The textures were based on images from late 80s or ealy 90s, judging from the number of satellite dishes.
There is no info regarding scale on their site, but average 10 story housing building of that era was 30-35m high (2,7m per housing flat, almost all buildings were made with elements precast in the same standard across the country ). As you wrote it would be 1:300 so = ~6mm.
As a curiosity I can add that most of these buildings look much different now when EU standards enforced thermomodernsation. Most of them were plastered with Styrofoam and acrylic plaster and painted in hideous pastel colours in an attempt to "humanize block districts". Instead of grim and dominating feel they had most of these blocks look now just silly.

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.
