I’ve bought quite a bit of miniatures for Stargrave through creating that list and creating this YouTube series. I wanted to do a scale comparison for a while, as it was a much-requested feature. Painting all these minis is turning about to be quite the project, so I apologize that not all the minis shown below are painted, based, etc.
Let’s get to the Sci-Fi & Stargrave Miniature Size & Scale Comparison!
Each Mini will contain (links included):
Game (where applicable)
All pictures also include a Space Marine (not Primaris) for size reference, as we mini painters have most likely handled at least one during our journey. Space Marines are 28mm Heroic scale.
Bases are not all the same; I used what I had, or what the minis came with.
The first size & scale comparison consists of (left to right):
This gets a little interesting. The Alien Fomor, and Orc have huge heads, but that’s expected for their design. The Chronoscope mini is 25mm Heroic, and is quite big compared to everything else we’ve seen so far. He’d easily fit in that Space Marine armor. More with him, later. Note that the Einherjar is small because he is a Space Dwarf.
The Core Space minis work great with everything. Diehard Miniatures say they are 28mm, but they are HUGE. Large heads and long bodies. Take a look below.
As you can see, the Diehard Miniatures, and Reaper Chronoscope are both much larger than the Rogue Stars, and Stargrave Crew. I think the Chronoscope can blend decently with everything else, but the Diehard Miniatures mini, unfortunately, does not. You can see Lillith if standing up straight, would be as tall or taller than the Space Marine., Her head is pretty gigantic.
More with Diehard Miniatures and Reaper Chronoscope to emphasize my point; I think Chronoscope works, but Diehard doesn’t if size & scale matter to you. Not to say, I won’t paint, and use my Diehard Miniatures in:
Five Parsecs From Home
& other mini agnostic, Sci-Fi Games
Diehard Miniatures will stand out, because they have large, exaggerated features. I’m still going to use them because they are some of my favorite mini sculpts out there. But, you have been warned.
I hope this size & scale comparison helped you decide what sci-fi miniatures to buy for Stargrave, and other Sci-Fi miniature games!
