In the film The Dark Crystal (1982), how much taller were those vulture-like Skeksis guys, compared to the little human-like Gelflings people?

PS. Would these "Nekharu" heads (Crocodile Games, 28mm?) work for the vulture guys?

I thought the heads work… if the size head to body works

Maybe the Gelflings could be represented by these Eureka 18mm elves:

IIRC, at least twice the height of the Gelflings.

Twice? Wow, so maybe there's some way to make a couple without too much effort. I guess I'd need to start with a hunched "28mm" figure, perhaps from among those "Nekharus".

Or some reptilian biped from Reaper Bones, that I could do a head swap on and add "robes" to.

Try the Powys troops from Mierce Miniatures: link


That's a 50mm round base.

How Big Would SKEKSIS Be If The Gelflings Were 15mm Tall?

Based on this image the Gelfling is 242px tall and the Skeksis is about 370px tall (max height is bend of neck).
15mm/242px = X/370px gives you about 23mm

Or the Skeksis is about half as tall again ( 1.5*) the Gelf.

I've always wished there were miniatures for the film (though in 28mmn, not 15).

Excellent extrapolation!

Huh, not anywhere near as big as I remembered!

I used DyeHard's picture to find other similar ones.

Wow, I had no idea that Grenadier Models (Pinnacle Products) had released TWO SETS of Dark Crystal minis:

And, if someone really needs to have some in 25-28mm, no matter the price …
