I got some of the wave 2 figures as extras in an Ebay purchase and I'm wondering if anybody knows what scale they are as they are tiny compared to even the other sedition wars figures which are on the small side. I've been reading that there was a problem with shrinkage but some seem to be to small even compared to 25mm figures.

I'll update this topic when I take some comparison photos.

I did find this featuring a couple of the Wave 2 with a vanguard.

Nice looking figs. I especially like the one in the middle.

I'm interested in purchasing that one, if anyone else has one to sell.

I've heard that miniatures that are cast can shrink by about 3% 4%, depending upon the models and materials being used.

You can measure them from sole of foot to eyes in order to determine the scale of these.

I wouldn't be surprised to see that the two females on the left will be small, since women generally are shorter and smaller than men.

I have most of the special miniatures and I was hugely disappointed with them. The scale was all over the place with the resin miniatures

Officially they were all true scale 28mm.

They are a touch smaller than 25mm. I have the Firefly, not Jane, Mal, Zoe and River minis Measuring from the top of the head to the bottom of the foot, Jane comes in exactly 25mm. Mal is just fractionally smaller. Zoe is 24mm and River is 23mm.

They are tiny, River for instance would fit very easily as a tall woman with 20mm figures as she seems to be scaled very similar to a Modern Caeser miniature I found. That is my main problem with them at the moment they mostly seem to be in scale with 20mm figures in heads, hands etc but are to tall to easily use with other 20mm figures and to tiny to use even with 25mm GZG.

They are some nice sculpts, but have just ended up weirdly scaled and don't even fit in very well even with the other Sedition Wars figures.

Oh well, on the plus side they are very much a free add on I received as part of a Sedition Wars box that was itself so absurdly cheap that I felt bad for the Ebay seller, so at least I'm not in the same boat as those who got these as part of a Kickstarter.

I'd call them True-scale 28s.

notRiver is tiny, but that's not unreasonable, the actresses playing her are like 5'4" tall!

All of the firefly figures are really small as is the BSG one, its just River being small anyway makes that even more obvious since she is very close to 20mm and I'd probably have no problem using her in 20mm zombie games without it being obvious she is in a different scale.

Its not just the height that is the problem for me, its the heads, hands, weapons etc which are essentially closest to 20mm than anything else I own. The rest vary in height and bulk until you get up to the Firebrand commander who is probably usable, the aphid loader who features a smaller version of Barker(who being big guy in wave 1 is in scale as just a smaller guy) and the Kara Black tech com figure is similar in size to the wave 1 version.

Personally I'd say that they are probably vary between true scale 25mm to 28mm, with some of them pushing up to the true scale 28mm of the wave 1 Vanguard and some like the Riddick or Dead Space guy somewhere in between.

Having glued a few to bases, in height they are probably more in the true 28mm scale for most of them, its the spindly nature that is throwing me off a little in judging their scale.

So looking at them again I think there are couple that I could straight up just use as humanoid aliens (one in a survival suit and the other is the dead space guy) without any issue. The rest may need more thought, but since I use my own setting I could just go all star trek and paint them a strange colour and call them aliens as well or replace the heads with an alien option.
