G'day folks,

just looking at adding somrthing to scenario play and looking for models in the same scale.

My best half measured/guestimation is that star wars minis are about 1:54 scale of there abouts.

anyone got a more definitive answer? anyone else using store bought model that are close to correct scale?

let us know.

Cheers.

the scale is subjective...especially when you include the tie crawler or desert skiff into the mix...really difficult to get a good scale when the makers of the original models didnt do that good of a job all the time.

Not to mention the fact that sculpts of the same character are often wildly inconsistent. (Examples: Vader Unleashed, CotF Sandtrooper, IE Bespin Guard, etc.)

A long discussion was made about this on the WotC boards, and there may still be a member or two there that can help you with scale issues.

Try:

or message Imperator58 there, he knows a lot about scales.

Yep, he's the scale-guru :D

That thread was a lot of fun, might have to update it soon.
