Scaling the Heights, and Then Some
Stephen Loftus has completed a massive update to his Halo Scale Charts - the total number of pages has increased from 12 pages in the last version to 27 pages in this one! It contains a mountain of new items from previous games, plus most major vehicles from Reach and Halo Wars. Go take a look!
