Yes I was wondering if there are any new 6mm Sci-Fi infantry figure comparison photos. Especially interested in Defeat in Detail's new 6mm figures. Does anybody have pics of these figures with other 6mm figures. Any info would be helpful. Future thanks.

I don't have any good comparison pictures but vanguards new defeat in detail infantry match perfectly with the old Epic 40k, and are a good fit with DRM, Microworld, and CNC as well. There on lots of pictures on the Tactical Command web forum, you should be able to find comparisons there.

Onslaught have some new items out and their scale pictures are very helpful.

Yes, check out Tac Cmd … But generally many of the newer 6mm Sic-fi models are very compatible. I.e. are in scale with each other and some of the older models generally … E.g. as noted DRM, Microworld, CinC, Vanguard plus HLS/EX and Onslaught. All work well with most of the older Epic models and GZG as well.

As above, however the Vanguard Marines are really 8mm in size and thus a lot bigger than the old GW Marine figures. although their regular troopers fit in with the other ranges. This I prefer anyway as it gives you the right look for genetically produced super soldiers.

Also Vanguard's vehicles are also what you call "true scale" so are generally bigger than old GW vehicles, but mix well with DRM/Exodus/Onslaught.

Yes, having started with Epic in '90 … the size of Epic figures varied from when they released AT/SM1 thru the other 3 iterations somewhat. Then when FW started to do Epic, you got another set of "scales". I.e. scale creep was in effect. But generally they all worked well together.

That being said, e.g. the Epic Titan was 1/500th scale where the rest of Epic was generally 6mm; 1/285 ; 1/300 …
