Hey All,

I originally posted this on the DRM forum while Epicomms was down.

I have started taking some size comparison photos for people. ?These will include comparison shots of various companies and within the DRM line.

First up we have the Pax Arcadian tanks. ?These are all on top of a 25mm wide x 40mm long base so you get a better idea of size.



This is comparing transports. ?The transports are on top of 20mm wide by 30mm long bases.



I wanted to point out how large the Verger and Velite walkers are. The Verger is on top of a 40mm wide x 20mm long base so it is at a similar base height as the dreadnought. ?The dreadnought is on a 20mm x 20mm base.



This shows the kraytonian tanks compared to each other. ?The Gara transport is not shown but it is on the same chassis as the Aurika. ?The 3 tanks on te left are on 20mm wide x 30mm long bases. ?The Arkalest is on a 25mm wide x 40mm long base.



I know most people are anxious to see infantry comparisons. ?They are coming you just have to wait a little. ?Plus other photos like the Majestic and Pax Arcadian Dropship. ?Basically I will be continuously updating this thread for a little while.

------------------Added 27.04.06----------------------

Well here is the infantry comparison photo. ?This has GZG, GW and DRM. ?I edited the photo shifting all of the figures up or down so they are approximately on the same "ground level" which is the red line. ?That way the comparison is based on the figure height alone, not the bases. ?In general I think all the companies figures work reasonably well with each other. ?Though some would not work if mixed together on the same stand. ?As for detail I think DRM ranks the best with GW second (though GW varies from being as good of detail to less so) and GZG last. ?Though I do not have as great a selection of GZG infantry. ?I just bought a couple of packs to check them out and I did not care for them. ?The GZG figures aren't labeled because I can remember which ones I bought, sorry. ?I hope this helps.



-Audrey

Hi Audrey,

Thanks for the great photos!

<< teacher mode on >>

As a side note, I beleive that chassis is spelled this way.

It's a French word and they have their own ways of writing and saying things that don't always match up with English language conventions.

<< teacher mode off >>

Shalom,
Maksim-Smelchak.

Hi!

All too true.

Then again Doug probably saw that the size should be similar if they were to be proxies.

Surprised at the tall profile of the APC.

Is it possible to get a comparison (just for me :) ) of the new SM Rhino and the Intruder and hammerjack?

That would be great, thanks!
