greetings and salutations one and all
i was wondering if anyone who has a rackham mini (mainly the wolfen or devoureurs) could post a pick for me showing the size difference between rackham and gw sized mini's.

human gw miniatures are a (rackham) head smaller than rackham human miniatures (generally, because even the humans among rackhams own line, esp. some older ones are not always consistent.).
ofcourse with wolfen and devourers it would make very little difference (the benefits of unique races.) they'd just be bigger in a gw evoriment than they're in a rackham envoriment but wouldnt look out of scale.
now Ive never really had a wolfen next to an gw mini (the latter were all long sold when I eventually got back in miniatures a few years back.) but they are generally a little bigger than one and a half a rackham human I believe , so that makes them probably double size a gw human being.
sorry no picts but I hope this helps a little ? what are you planning ?

question to you, how do privateerpress minis (humans) compare to gw minis ? (so I can compare them to rackham minis ;))

Rackham minis are generally a bit taller than both GW and PP minis, I'd say. I don't have any pics, since I'm at work now, but if noone has posted any pics when I get home I can take some.

I just finished a Rackham Wolfen (Fighter 3) and have some GW BB Humans, but no camera. So I went with the old measuring tape:
Rackham Wolfen: 47 mm
GW Human BB Catcher: 28 mm
(foot to eye, excluding base)

Hmm...I seem to remember a website somewhere that posted a bunch of different minis together so you could get a visual on size...anyone remember the website?

This one does....
but no rackham that I could find.

I used to have a Wolfen. I think they were similar to the Dragyri, which do appear on that site.

I had no idea the Dragryi were so large! those things are monsterous. MUST GET SOME!

thanks for all the help. luckily for me the rackham distributor for aus came into work this morning and gave me a "kalyar the awakened" to paint.
as for what im planning, i am now planning on doing a beastman minotaur army with wolfen and devourers, if the mini's were small enough i was going to do a chaos warrior army with them.
