PostSubject: Model scales? 28mm v 32mm   Tue 21 Apr 2015 - 3:47

Hi guys, I'm looking at some alternative models to go with some of my GW Chaos figures (Sorcerer Lord, Nurgle Chaos Lord & Gutrot Spume) and noticed that some are marked as 32mm. Is there much of a difference in the scales? I've measured the ones I've got but they seem oversized anyway. I believe that GW is classed as 28mm, but are they exactly that height in general?

Cheers,

Jed

GW models are 28mm Heroic scale. In my experience its better to compare the actual models together from different manufacturers visually to see the scale differences, than by just what they list the scale at. Reaper Warlord is listed as 25mm Heroic but they are actually a larger model than GW. This works in some cases. I think a Chaos type would be fine slightly larger if you are ok with that. If you search on Lead Adventure forum Fantasy section you can find some nice size comparison posts about different manufacturers.

As far as I can tell miniature size is a deception game and nothing else. 32mm miniatures are obviously smaller in scale than 28mm and no one company produces a consistent line anyway. GW has gone to hero models being bigger and more heroic in scale than rank and file for years. With Reaper it really depends on the individual sculptor (as it probably does with GW, but they no longer advertise the sculptor). As Mike says Lead Adventure is an excellent resource for photographic scale comparisons.

Hopefully this can give you an idea... But it does vary depending on the sculptor, as already mentioned.
