Scale 25mm and 28mm question 4 Years, 10 Months ago  
Hi friends, I've read some about this issue, but I'm not still sure so I will ask here, any help would be much appreciated.

I'm starting using reaper miniatures from Dark Heaven Legends (25mm as the state in the web site), and then I've found this dark sword miniatures masterworks from elmore pics. They say they are 28mm. I order online, so I don't have the chance to see them in person before purchasing.

I'm not really sure if there is a way to know if these minis will look good together or some may look overscaled. I plan use them all "human sized". So far I know it depends really because in every scale (28 or 25) there are many heights or constitutions for minis, and while some of them may look good mixed, some may not.

Do somebody have any experience with these or can give me some useful info to use to decide about this 28mm-25mm compatibility matter? I could give you some examples of minis just in case someone have them.

Thank you in advance, and greetings,
arsthein

I don't know if this will help or not, but I remembered seeing this on Wikipedia a while ago:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miniature_figure_(gaming)#Scales

There's a multitude of other links on that page that might lead to some useful info.

Ok, that link isn't showing up right. The "(gaming)#Scales" needs to be part of the link.

I have found that the darksword minis i have work with reaper but only for petite females and elves. This might just be true of the specific ones I have (a few darksword and a ton of reaper) but reaper minis are not consistent at all.

Thank you so much for the tips guys! the miniature in which I'm interested is a female, so I think based on what shadbelly said I shouldn't have problems, anyway here I post a link to the mini, perhaps you can confirm it probably will be ok:

www.darkswordminiatures.com/gallery/e_1162_Femalearcher.htm

What do you think? should she usually look ok between other females from Reaper?.

Unfortunately, the picture doesn't have any sort of reference for scale/size, so it is impossible to say how it will look alongside another mini. On its own merits it's a great figure, so it should look good with other quality minis, but that's really as far as I can go advice-wise.

Even though it is sculpted to 28mm scale, that only means that a 6 foot figure would be 28mm. If the sculptor wanted it shorter because it's a woman, then it might be 25mm tall at the top of the head. Throw in the difficulty that it is an elvish archer -- where snooty elves are up to 7 feet tall, and tree-hugging elves might be as short as 4 feet -- and there is no telling what size the figure might be.

It would be nice if somebody started an industry standard of photographing all minis next to a ruler.
