As I'm moving more and more away from buying Citadel miniatures and moving more into scratch sculpting I seem to keep having to ask questions about heights of the different races, I'd really appreciate it if one/some of the more knowledgeable forumites could fill out this reference list of average heights in mm (to the eyes) of all the notable races i.e.

Human: 28 mm
Elf: ???
Dark Elf: 28mm
Dwarf: 22mm-24mm
Halfling: 18mm
Beastman: ???
Bestigor: 40-45mm
Minotaur: ???
Orc: 28mm
Goblin: 22mm-24mm
Snotling: ???
Troll: ???
Ogre: ???
Gnoblar: ???
Skaven: 18-24mm
Rat Ogre: ???
Skink: ???
Saurus: ???
Kroxigor: ???
Giant: 200mm

COOL! Your TOTAL SCUPT Skaven minis ROCK! It will be a blast to see you doing up more of the little suckers.
Do you measure your minis from the top of the base to the top of the head? A surprising large number of mini makers give measurements to either the eyes or the top of whatever headgear the mini is wearing. It DOES add a bit of confusion to purchasing stuff. Suspect

I'll measure up what Citadel stuff I have & let you know their heights. thumbsup

I've got a couple of things in the works that I think you'll appreciate deaf! (Don't expect any progress any time soon though) And yeah I measure to the eyes generally...

COOL! Creativity is not a thing to be rushed, & anticipation seasons the fruits of your labors. Although I'd like to point out that I'm REALLY OLD, so could you take your time in a hurry? Only kidding, kind of Suspect .

Halflings 18mm
Goblins & Dwarves 22mm to 24mm
Dark Elves 28mm
Orcs 28mm

More measurement are forth-coming. thumbsup

Oh no don't say that lol! What a burden to place on my shoulders Smile
Cheers for those, I've updated the list. I was really hoping that orcs were about the same size as hoomies...

If the Orcs stood up straight like their Mum told them to, they'd probably be a head or so taller than a human or elf, but being hunched over they are about eye level. Skaven seem to have the same posture problem. Suspect

River Trolls 35mm with their posture problem
Stone Troll [listemed to Mum Suspect ] 45mm

I think the Ogres are about the same height as the Stone Trolls. I'll check later, & if they're different, I'll post their height. thumbsup

I'll measure some up for you later. If memory serves the metal ogre-bodyguad is considerably shorter than the modern bulls, ironguts and leadbelchers. But ogres vary in height.

PS. Some Citadel humans vary by up to 50%.
