Just decided to do some size comparisons to show what some different scales of minis. actually look like side by side.

Star Wars Legion is indeed bigger than 28mm. I'd put it between 32mm and 35mm or thereabouts.

Here you can see the Star Wars Legion troopers along side some Games Workshop Age of Sigmar minis. and Warhammer minis. from different eras of the gaming company.

I also did just for fun a size comparison of the AT-ST Imperial Walker model with the Age of Sigmar Nurgle Great Unclean One. The Great Unclean One is a huge model in 28mm so for it to be dwarfed by the AT-ST shows that Star Wars Legion is indeed a bigger scale. I think that if the AT-ST was in 28mm scale the AT-ST and GUO would be pretty close to being the same height, at least much closer than this.

Interesting to see these scales side by side. I actually thought that the rebel and Imperial troopers would be even bigger next to the Warhammer stuff, but not so much.

Thank you for the size comparisons. A huge deciding factor for me is whether I have the ability to use my existing terrain collection with any given scale/size of miniatures. Most of my terrain is for WH40K/Infinity and the Legion figures look like they won't look too out of place with them.

Edit: I also noticed in your pictures that the Legion bases appear to be thicker than the GW bases, seeing as how I'm not interested in using FFG's rules re-basing might cut the size issue down even more.

Yeah, I would agree with you. I think that most of your WH40k/Infinity stuff would work just fine with Star Wars Legion. Certain things like some doorways on some 28mm buildings might be a tad small but I don't think on a tabletop as a whole it would look out of place.

I bought a bunch of 3D-printed terrain for SWL and there are vendors out there who are trying to ride the line between 28mm and 32mm and are kind of making buildings and other scatter terrain to suit both scales. Other vendors are making true 32mm sci-fi buildings.

When you see a 32mm scale sci-fi bunker or some other type of structure, you can visually see side by side that it's a bigger scale than 28mm terrain, particularly as I said with things like doorways and windows.

But for generic terrain features like boulders, craters, rocks, water, that stuff totally flexible between two scales of minis.
