Hello, everyone! I'm working on a conversion of 02813: Reaper - War's.

 

03197_G.jpg02813_G.jpg

 

War looks pretty big though, and I don't want the axe look ridiculously out of scale. If it's a little big, that's fine, because Thelgar's going to represent a barbarian PC in our weekly game.

 

Is War to scale with other Dark Haven minis? Thanks!

War's a bit larger than your average 28mm mini, but not that much bigger than Thelgar. I don't happen to have War around to make an accurate comparison.

Although the head of War's axe is probably about the same size as the head of Thelgar's axe, the haft of the weapon isn't going to be nearly as long - are you going to put it in just one of Thelgar's hands or both? The haft of War's axe isn't going to be long enough to fit into both of Thelgar's hands. You could, however, swap out the axe heads.

 

EDIT: Sounds like War's axe might be a bit too big....

Thanks, guys!

 

Haldir, I get an error message when I click on your photos. It looksl like they're there, but I can't get to them. I'd like to take a look, 'cause I think they'd answer my question. I have a Dropbox account, but my inner Luddite is acting up.

 

I am planning to put it in just his right hand, but probably add a different haft anyway, or combine a longer haft with the one on War's axe. What I have in mind is a "big honker of a great axe", but big within the realm of still looking somewhat reasonable, even considering the enormous relative sizes of the weapons most minis are packin'.

I got an Error 403 on both of those links Haldir.

 

I don't own either mini, but it might work if you're simply changing axe heads (ie: Thelgar to War).

Yep. I'm planning to lose the two-handed grip and put the axe in his right hand only, with his hand just below the head. Even though a great axe is a two-handed weapon in Pathfinder, I'm not worried about the pose reflecting that.

 

Looking at the Boneyard pics, which I didn't think of doing before (thanks, Brother Jim), I think the size will be just fine.

 

Thanks, everyone!

Someone thought it would be cute to host those via dropbox :p you have to log into drop box to view so I would suggest against this method of hosting images.

Actually I measured Thelgar's axe & forgot to put that up. It's about half the size of War's axe. So take that in consideration.

 

 

Try this:

(suppose to be the axe with mm ruler)

 

& this is the axe/arm & Thelgar next to each other (sorry for the angle ha ha)

      Goal
       
      The purpose of this thread is to gather in one place all the visual answers to the oft recurring question, “How big is Reaper miniature __ __ __ __ __ ?”
       
      That question comes up about once a week; but always about different models. This thread is meant to serve as a place for those foolish kind souls who decide to answer in detail with a photograph to post their work. 
       
       
      Guidelines for such photographs
       
      “...Posed in front of an inch or centimeter grid, and / or with a ruler laid out in front of, above, or behind them, and / or next to other Miniatures for comparison...” Comparison pics are the most useful because the numerical height of a model doesn't always tell you how bulky it is, or how exaggerated the features might be. Common objects like paint dropper bottles, figure bases, and specific Miniatures like Sir Forscale (76543) can acquaint the viewer with size of a new Mini, especially while standing on a grid. The best comparison shots are like police line-ups: several miniatures side-by-side in front of an easily-read scale.
       
      @Pingo @redambrosia and @lowlylowlycook contributed most of the wording in the preceding paragraph (which I edited a bit).

      Greetings,
       
      I was wondering if anyone might be able to give me some advice, please? I have a friend who is playing Tomb Kings in Warhammer Fantasy Battle, and was hoping to field some Sepulchral Stalkers:
       
      https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/warhammerfb/images/4/4e/Sepulchral_Stalkers_Tomb_Kings_8th_Edition_Miniatures.jpg
       
      However, he has been unable to obtain the original figures, since GW discontinued the TK line, so we have been discussing how I might create some, and are currently thinking of using the following:
       
      Body: http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/bones%20snake/sku-down/77321
       
      Tops:
       
      http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/egypt%20bones/sku-down/77339
       
      http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/egypt%20bones/sku-down/77340
       
      Before I go buying these and then hacking them apart, is there anyone out there who has all three and might be willing to post a photo of how they match up next to each other for scale, please? I'm also open to suggestions for other sources of snake bodies if the size match is better. I've contemplated the following, for example, but again am not sure how the sizes would match up:
       
      http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/bones%20snake/sku-down/77393
       
      http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/bones%20snake/sku-down/77117
       
      http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/bones%20snake/sku-down/77153
       
      Thank you very much!

      This is a scale question. Specifically on the big guys in the back. When I had started roughing out the wireform and slapping a little base putty on them, I had the idea of Trolls in armor. Now that I'm looking at them compared to some reaper conversions, I'm thinking they might end up having to be giants, demons, or something else. What do you think would fit for those figs at the scale they are? Prefer DnD themes if you think Troll wouldnt work. Also, open to weird fantasy creatures as long as they fit the scale and are tall and wirey.    These aren't for any game/encounter in particular, I just enjoy making stuff. L to R,
      - WIP necromancer and ghouls I'd started scratchbuilding before they got shelved. Looking forward to getting back into those.
      - Big guys in back are undecided
      - An old barbarian conversion WIP from a reaper bones
      - Recent child scratchbuild - My warg rider conversion WIP from a Reaper Bones (which has it's own post here)
      - and I believe this was a Warhammer Chaos figure that I had added tentacles to an painted about a decade ago.

      Okay gang, 
       
      Need to know if someone can help me out. I have had to settle for making paper mini's for my DnD campaign until I can get some money together and start buying more mini's from reaper. I have a scale I use for smaller figures, but I need one I can use for bigger ones. 
       
      Does anyone know the measurement of  03137: Nor'Okk, Ettin  minus the base. That way it will help me in scaling my minis for larger figures. Actually just need his height.

       
       
      Thanks
