Green Blood and Red Blood for Mars

Found this interesting tidbit today...from the wonderfully named "Deep Fried Happy Mice: The World’s First Online Miniatures Restaurant (Please Wait To Be Seated)"

"Green Blood and Red Blood for Mars was originally published to cover tactical mass warfare on Mars during the Victorian Science Fiction Era of the late 1800s. Units with twenty men as well as those with 500 men can be represented on the board.

Scales
One casting = 10 men
One turn = one minute
20mm+ castings : One inch = ten yards OR One centimeter = 5 yards
15mm /6mm castings : One inch = twenty yards OR One centimeter = 10 yards."

Hmmm....Blue, Green and Yellow Martians, 6 and 8 legged natives beasts...I wonder how they would go with a conversion for 2mm?
