We shouldn't be so afraid of a small difference in heigth or width of a model.

 

Some examples from real life:

I remembered seeing a photo of "The Mountain" with his father & grandfather:

I just find it kind of hilarious to see all these photos of ordinary townsfolk next to Sir Forscale (presumably a standard warrior, so I'd expect him to be anything but *short* compared to the norm), and the beggar and the lady with the broom are nearly as tall as he is, while the friar and the milkmaid look slightly TALLER, and "Nope!  Don't see a problem here!"  :D 

 

Sure, Sir Forscale looks perfectly fine, if you're willing to accept him as a slightly-shorter-than-the-local-milk-maid-but-still-heroic sort of guy, but then I think he's a bit off in his role as Sir "Forscale."

The funny thing is, most people view Vikings as tall muscular warriors, when actually they were lean and usually a head shorter than the English monks they were slaying.

Even The Best Bounty Hunter In The Galaxy wasn’t very big.9BF0477D-ACFE-46A9-991A-2644EBA1D438.thumb.jpeg.ceeb316bd9c05d5d13f6123e756d18aa.jpeg

At the time of filming Jeremy Bulloch was only about 5’11 and 160 lbs.

 

Sir Forscale is just an average sized guy trying to keep a crazy mixed up world in scale.

"Only" 5'11"?  That's just one inch shy of 6 feet.  In other words, if what you're saying is true, Jeremy Bulloch was either pretty darned close to the perfect height for those who define mm scale by "height of a 6-foot-tall man," or maybe even on the tall side of that range if one claims that an "average" person for purposes of defining 25mm, 32mm, etc., is shorter than that.

And in any case, if Sir Forscale is an "average-sized guy," it's still suspicious to me if he's shorter than the local milkmaid.

mistyped "size" for "side"

He's also leaning and bent kneed.

Milkmaids were well known to have excellent health.  Mainly it was they never got the Pox because the got immunity from Cow Pox.

Good point, but in that case ... maybe a better scale sample would be if we had a "Sir Forscale" who is *not* leaning and bent-kneed.  (I know, I know ... too late for that now, since he's well-established through 4 Kickstarters as a standard.)

I saw the Bones 3 Crusaders as the updated Sir Forscale, as they seemed to be a new version of the Warlord unit he was originally from in metal:

As said before in the thread, I agree Sir Forscale is getting a bit long in the tooth...he was always oddly thin for a knight in full plate, and on the shorter end of Reaper's human sculpts to begin with.
