I'm not model tank savvy but would like to know what scale GW tanks are if anyone knows. Thanks.

uhm.... 100% scale. Its not like the tanks have actually been made and are in use. Whens the last time youve seen a primitive triangle with treads and a cannon on it?

I remember a couple of years ago one of the designers (Adcock, maybe?) said the scale was closest to 1/43. Plenty will tell you otherwise but that does seem fairly accurate.

Threads about GW scale come up every 2 weeks, please have a search.

Short answer: GW models have no consistent scale (not even one miniature has a consistent scale, see hands and head). If you try to use modern or WW2 tanks for conversions, best look for 1/48 though, or use the wide collection of 28mm (1/56) tanks now available.
