How high are the triangles?

16 posts in this topic

I realise the answer to this question is probably staring me in the face somewhere, but how high are the triangles on the pics in the gallery?

 

Couldn't find the answer on the Reaper site anywhere or in the various FAQ's.

 

(Specifically I'm trying to figure out the height and base diameter of 03395: Ghostly Summons)

.5 & 1 inch are the increments. Seems like the answer for this one should go into the stickies, as there was similar question just last week.

 

ReaperBryan is in the process of adding all of those to the inventory

 

Ghostly Summons, I picked this one up at ReaperCon this year & I will say is pretty tall. At least 2 normal DHL humans tall perhaps, if not bigger??

I would suggest a note to this effect at the top of the gallery pages in the store, as we seem to get this question every week...

Thanks very much (I did do a forum search for "Triangle" but didn't turn up anything relevant).

 

(Edit: I realised that a search for "Triangle" doesn't find the word "Triangles" ...)

I don't know that we get the question How high are the triangles every week, but it does seem like we get a how tall is miniature x every week.

 

So I agree - a note somewhere obvious in the store/gallery.

I also believe that they started out as bryangles which kind of explains why you can't find 'em with either triangle or triangles...

Correction: Bryangles™. Pronounced bryanglesTee-em. :devil:

Even if it's stickied, the friendly folks here will usually help someone out with questions of height, width, weight, etc. for a Reaper model.

Actually, I think you are wrong. According to your statement, this miniature should be 1.5 " or 3.8cm to the top of its head (without the bun). I own this miniature and it is 3cm high or 1 3/16 ", as would be expected if the measure indicated full centimeters, not half inches. Can you clarify this, as someone obviously uses a European measure, not an Imperial one.

They are set every 1/2". You can only get an approximate feel for the size of the miniature using the briangles. Look closely at where the briangles are in the picture and where the miniature is in the picture. Since they are not sitting next to each other the measurement is going to be slightly off. You also need to take in account the height of the base.

I took the base into account (otherwise the measure would be non-linear), but 1.5 inches is far above the bun in any case, whatever perspective and misplacement of the measure could explain (even if it would only be poor placement of the measure, it would not be helpful to the customers). Please make a personal test.

 

Otherwise all Reaper miniatures would be 38mm scale and not compatible with most other miniature ranges, and this is clearly not the case.

A little Photoshop may be helpful.

Using the space between the two points as a base, measuring 1/2 inch, the figure stands approximately 1.25 inches tall to the top of her head. 1.5" to the topknot.

and 1.25" is pretty close to the 1.1875 (1 3/16) -- only .075 inches. 75/1000's of an inch....

 

thus the Bryangles/Triangles offer a pretty good *estimate* of how tall a figure really is. It's not precise to the mm, but it was intended only to help serve as a guide.
