Some day in the far distant future, we're going to do a mousling campaign. Right now I have all the mouslings availble from reaper, as well as the LJC minis, so I know how they all scale to each other. But I'm thinking that in this far off campaign we'll need other critters.


Darksword makes cool critters (seaturtle pirate!). However, darksword doesn't have anything in their pictures to indicate scale. Aside from one picture that compares the big badger to a fox. Not that helpful when you don't know how big the fox is in the first place.


Anyway, does anyone here have some of the Darksword critters and could maybe post pictures with some reaper minis (mouslings would be best) so I can get an idea of how big they are?


I'm specifically wanting any of their turtles, the owl mage  :wub: , possum, guinea pigs, squirrel, or mice. I have a frog, so I don't need those so much.


Soooo much cuteness~  :blush:

I'm going to try to post some pics, but last time I tried that it was a fail.  First of all I suck at camera, secondly I couldn't get them linked.  But I do have some of the DarkSword stuff, mostly random odd critters, and all you want is an idea of scale, so hopefully this will do.  All of the minis I have are still packaged, so I'll sandwich them in between Lara Kraft and the Easter mouseling to give some perspective.  As Girot says most of them are larger, but to me their scale is kind of random.  I did a photo with two of the frogs, and you can see that though overall they are roughly the same size with the extra bits, the heads aren't the same size.  It's kinda close, but not quite.

I can't get the pics to work. I've tried using the image and the link tool, when the window comes up and I paste my stuff it does nothing. Then When I try to x out it says something about how options have changed. Then I'm stuck and have to reload the forums.

In the process of putting a order for DS anthros for my mouseling-Hommlet @ ReaperCon adventure.




I've got the pirate cat & she sizes up quite well with the mouselings. Pretty much a Tom to the Jerrys, you might say ::):

I love the Darksword line, I opened up my Owl Mage and placed her next to Madam Gorgonzola for a scale shot for you. Please excuse the iphone picture. The only ones I painted I placed in the photo as well my Frog Jester which is on a block so hard to tell scale and the goat necromancer (Gencon speed paint). I was going to open the Sea Pirate Turtle for you but he would require assembly.  


Hope this helps, I would recommend the Dark Sword Critters as they are wonderfully detailed and a joy to paint. Can't wait to see how you paint them if you decided to get them.

I like that.  I actually think that works better for a game designed for kids.  The larger animals would identify better as the "adults" of the adventure.


Okay I am soooooo doing a kid's adventure module now.

Thank you Marsya! And thank you to Matbar for dueling the new options to try to post picts  ^_^


That picture is very helpful for me. I think I'll get the owl and turtles first  ::D:


You know you wanna play Mouseling in Hommlet @ RCon now ::):

Just sayin.....

As if I wasn't sad enough that I can't go to Reapercon... you go and make me sadder :lol:

I was just going through Darksword making a birthday wish list and a couple more questions occurred to me:


Are the mouses and hamster the same size as the cats? And are the foxes the same size as the cats?


This picture shows that the squirrel is the same size as the fox (very disappointing, squirrels need to be smaller than the cats and foxes).



There's a few of the foxes I might like if they're the same size as the cats. And I was thinking of making their mouses rats, since they're pointier of nose than the mouslings. So it wouldn't be bad if they were bigger than the mouslings, but I wouldn't want them to be as big as the foxes and cats.

      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).

      Aftermath is a dungeon crawler board game that is the heir to both Mice and Mystics and Stuffed Fables.
      The game takes place in a post apocalyptic world where rodents have formed colonies to scrounge resources for survival, cobbling together the things they need.
      For the set, I went with a lot of textures and a lot of wear and tear. Nothing these mice have is brand new, and I really wanted to express that.

      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.
