How tally-tall is everyone now?
« on: April 16, 2022, 01:19:14 AM »
Back for a quick post to ask for updated heights of the various races and "guestimates" of how tall they might be in their armour? Errr, for... reasons.

TIA!

Space Marines are around 7ft Tall, Primaris a head taller.

Custodes probably around 8ft tall.

Aeldari are about 7ft

Orks are taller than Humans, but due to their slouch are human height.

Hmmn. So nothing has really change that much then. Cool.

28mm + ~5mm/foot.

So for your list this would be (ish):

  • Victims Humans - 28mm
  • Space Marines - 33 mm (or 35-36 mm if you believe Philip Sibbering; 38mm if you believe many on the Interwebz)
  • Primaris/Custodes - 38 mm
  • Aeldari - 33 mm
  • Ork Boyz - 28 mm; bigger unz are, errr, bigger

Is that in armour, out of interest? Or do Eldar pointy heads given them a bit of extra height? So, could they be, say, 35mm?

Just asking for opinions. No reason whatsoever that I'm converting over to arbitrary units in millimetres.  ::)

Ah yes, the rule of cool "Big is 'ard" (fnar fnar).

Guess he had to have a glamour on him for 40,000 years?

Edit: Apparently so...

The idea of the Emperor as being Yhwh-condemneded FOURTEEN FEET TALL always struck me as hilarious rather than imposing.

I always felt that the emperor wasn't that tall, but due to his abilities appeared larger.

This is the genesis of my response above. The comparative size of beings in the 40k universe is basically ridiculous.

But, for the sake of discussion, surely we can get some basics down. Also interested for other models, too. Errr, again for no other reason than general intereste.  ::)
