Just got the stores demo set and am painting them for play.  Have been asked by a couple customers how the  miniatures compare to the old Wiz Kids figures and the Imperial Assault Miniatures. These guys are pretty bulky and substantial!

Not WizKids, it was WOTC. If WizKids did make them, they would have been substantially better. 

And I love the base height - much easier to pick up.

Sure about that? Attack Wing doesn't shine a bright light on WizKids...

WOTC ran Star Wars minis from 2004-2010, during that time WizKids put out some great sculpts and paint. Yes, early MageKnight was alittle rough but that was because WizKids practically invented the pre-painted minis format and MageKnight ran from 2001-2005. 

So, yea if WizKids had the Star Wars license during the same time period WOTC did, I really think they would have done awesome.

Did someone expect the size of the legion model to change when it got painted?

:P

I was doing this post foremost for the store I work at. Wanted people to know that they did not come pre painted. And they are a few smidgens of a millimeter bigger with primer, paint and 2 coats of lacquer......

If they were on the same style base I’d have no problem mixing the IA stormies in.

You could always re-base them. I could see someone home brewing a version of Legion using their Imperial Assault miniatures.

I have been making 3D skirmish maps for Imperial Assault and have always wanted to take the "Grid" out of the game. "Home Ruling" the characters using the Legion movement tools is the perfect solution.

Honestly, I feel if you mounted the IA model - base and all - fully on a Legion base... overall height would be close to a match... plus you have the benefit of having the proper base size for the maneuver tool...

... of course, I can’t really try it and compare until I can replicate  the Legion Bases...

if its 34mm, thats basically around 1/48 scale (i'm not that good at converting scales).

meaning while the Falcon to scale would be just under a meter (724mm)...not even small enough to be a piece of terrain but you could probably have a skirmish INSIDE of it lol.
Xwings would be ~266mm or 10.5 inches. Doable as a mini, better as terrain though.

And now i feel compelled to make a bunch of ruined ship terrain :P i cant even prime my models because its impossibly windy out and im trying to find MORE work? wtf is wrong with me?
