28mm Compared to 32mm - Picture examples

Recommended Posts

To give some idea on what the scale difference will look like between IA and Legion miniatures, I thought I'd throw up a couple of comparison shots of some IA minis next to known 32mm scale miniatures. In this instance, miniatures from the various Knight Models range. 

Attached is Vader with Cyclops and Batman. You can clearly see, that even with the resin base toppers, the 32mm are much much bigger than poor old Vader, who should tower over both of these. I thought this might prove useful to get a gauge on how the minis will compare once we have them in our hands.

The resin bases are pretty good match actually as the Legion bases are a lot bigger than the Imperial Assault one (they like a bit ridiculously big to be honest).

They look the same scale to me, but Imperial Assault were 32mm figures. I know because it was a point of discussion with the Descent community. We'll have to see how it works on the Legion figures.

It seems to me that those who want to see incompatibility are choosing to see incompatibility, while those who want to see compatibility are choosing to see that.

Being of the latter tribe, these pictures do not convince me that you can't use IA miniatures in Legion and vice versa.

Please don't misinterpret why I'm posting these pictures. It's for information only. I for one am happy with the larger scale of Legion.

When you hold them up next to each other with the tops of the bases level, the IA one comes up just over the shoulder of the legion one. The heightisn't the only thing, it's wider too. And the detail is much better thanks to the better plastic used now (latest descent, runewars).

Shame on FFG for this. Newcomers will be happy : good for them. For those who invested a lot in IA, this is disgusting.

You can still play IA with your investment tho; you've not lost anything.

SW:L is a different type of game and the bigger scale looks great.

I have painted all of my IA minis which includes multiple expansions.  If anyone would ever gripe about the larger scale models, it would be me.  However, I'm not!  I absolutely love the slightly larger scale.  It just means that you can imbue the minis with that much more detail and emphasis on the game table.  I couldn't be more excited!  I hereby declare that this is going to be the FFG game to own and the game to play in the near future.  :-)

Not a great picture, but an actual IA model next to an actual Legion model.

This is very frustrating.  I'd have been happy to get the newer, higher quality minis while filling in extra forces with IA stand-ins.

One thing GW understands is that all of their models should have a place on the table.  I don't see any reason why FFG couldn't keep the proportions similar while making them more modular.  The above won't be so bad, but I'm very concerned that any vehicle units added into the game will look extremely out of scale.

Here's a rough photoshop to try to compensate for the larger base of the Legion figure. I actually expected the base to make a bigger difference, but after making this there is actually a larger difference in the figures themselves than I first thought.

Thanks for coming through with the detail. Also, pretty sure I saw you photo bombing one of the demo vids. 

Lol, probably was me.

Was it the Team Covenant one with Alex?
