Figure size comparisons

There are figures from quite a variety of manufacturers in my unpainted figures pile, so a wee while ago I took some photos to compare sizes, as it were, for my friend Mark in NZ.

You have to be a bit careful with using these as some manufacturers have quite different sized figures in their range – sometimes the sculptor changes, or they buy moulds from other manufacturers.

 I realised I’d forgotten a couple of lighter cavalry types, so here they are with a Magister Militum Breton for comparison.

Note the Museum Arab - compare him with the Knight in the previous pic.

See how the thickness of the base can have quite an effect on the height of a figure? A bit of cardboard under the figure or a bit of filing can go a long way to help different sized figures blend together.

  1. That’s really useful. You can see what a pony that Tabletop figure is on when you compare him to the Magister one, which is one of the smallest figures in the other picture. Scale’s one element of mixability; another is the style of the figure. I’ve yet to try mixing figures, so I’m not really sure how much a uniform paint job makes them go together.
