Has any one here ordered from Onslaught Miniatures? I was wondering if that company's 6mm miniatures are in scale with the old Epic Space Marine miniatures or a little bit bigger? I look forward to your help.

I have some infantry from Onslaught Miniatures, but not old Epic minis to compare them.

Yep Onslaught, and e.g. Vanguard DiD, GZG, and most others work fine with the Epic. I have pretty much have all of them.

Now now note GW Epic had a scale creep situation, over the years even way before the new 8mm Titans.

E.g. Mk.VI SM is a little smaller than the Mk.VII. SM Scouts and newer leaders/characters[i.e. Medic, Tech, etc.] are bigger than both.

Eldar come in 3 sizes as do Orks and even Chaos SMs … sizes grew as time went on … With the different Epic releases, i.e. AT1/SM1, SM2/TL, E40K, and finally E:A[It uses mostly the larger models from SM1/SM2, & E40K].

But I don't have a problem with it, it is what it is and GW is what it is … Been doing Epic since '90. For better or worse …

What Legion 4 said.

Onslaught match very well with the infantry figures for Epic40K/Epic Armageddon, so are bigger than the ones for 1st ed Space Marine (the plastics, anyway, not the much heftier metal marine sculpts).

I would highly recommend Onslaught. Really clean castings, and my orders have arrived very quickly.

Vanguard are excellent too, and match well with Onslaught. I also like the Bradley miniatures vehicles that you can get through Alternative Armies (I don't have any of the infantry so can't comment on them).
