On the warlord site they show the minis as 38mm tall, but that is bottom of base to top of head. How does that size up against 28mm minis? Anybody have them to compare?

I am using foundry and old glory pirates, and dont really need giant whos roaming about.

They are tall, I think they work out at 1/48th Scale.

Crap. Why did they pick an off the wall scale?

what is so annoying about that, if they fit my other stuff I would buy them. But I an not interested in thier game, so I wont. And of the masny gamers I know, they will lose way more sales than they gain by this approach.

I think it would be a license issue. Maybe because black tree designs are still selling 28mm. Also warlord sell 28mm figures. Like how GW changed to a smaller scale (initially) for lord of the rings films.

For example bolt action may have soldiers that could be used for unit or the curse of fenric. If people bought these figures to use in their warlord/bbc doctor who game, where does the bbc get any money? Or how is that promoting the bbc figures to assist in the longevity of the game?

If lotr were war hammer scale, why buy lotr figures? Then GW would lose sales and try to exit the license ASAP. Same deal.
