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




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)

      My first figure 2021. I started painting about 2 years and took a year+ off from it. I decided to get back into and got some new paints and brushes for Xmas. Still working on my technique and would like to hear your opinion.

      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).

      Can you please tell me the scale for this mini?
      I caught the ninja unsuccessfully attempting invisibility from the partially painted merchant's henchmen ( RMI 02548) for size comparison.

      Wanted to pick up the decent board game because of the miniatures but I wasn't sure about their scale, I've heard they where 1/72 scale and I've also heard that they where a bit on the bigger side so I was wondering if anyone could post some pics so I can see the size comparison between the decent minis and other lines of miniatures.

      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:
      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
      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:
      Thank you very much!
