If you own Daleks, which scale are they?

War Drone01 Nov 2017 3:44 p.m. PST

I don't have any (so Off-Topic, sorry :-))

But there have been some fantastic "collections/armies" posted here in recent years! And not all of them were "wargaming miniatures" … IIRC, a certain boardgame is a pretty good source?

Some are 28mm "heroic", used with 25mm & 28 mm minis.


Some are 15mm and 20mm.

I own a variety of the old 28mm Daleks from Halequin.

I have a Pop vinyl Dalek which is just under 4 inches tall.

These plastic models are 25mm tall. Using the height of 1583 mm specified in the Doctor Who Technical Manual by Mark Harris (published in 1983), this gives a scale of about 1/63.

28mm, nearly all old GW plastics (and Cybermen from the same box).

gavandjosh0201 Nov 2017 8:54 p.m. PST

old GW – 25s/28s + Black Tree/Harlequin 28s.

I got 60 or so plastic daleks (the ones that came from the front of kids magazines!) that are about 30mm tall painted in the colour schemes inspired by the 2nd empire comic strip.

They are undefeated in battle, having annhialated everything and everyone theyve ever met.

Legion 402 Nov 2017 7:21 a.m. PST

Someone makes them in 6mm too … forget who … old fart

TMPWargamerabbit02 Nov 2017 8:00 a.m. PST

I have one… someplace, possibly lost to the times of storage…. All I can remember he/she/it was about 1" tall.

Crow Bait02 Nov 2017 9:01 a.m. PST

Both 28mm (Black Tree, I think) and 6mm from Irregular Miniatures.
