So I was looking through the '08 catalogue today for terminator captains as I need one model to complete a fifth squad of deathwing.
I saw two models, that would do the trick a metal Terminator captain and a metal Deathwing Terminator Captain.
Does anyone know how these models are size wise compared to the current plastic terminators? Are they the same size or a bit smaller?

Is the metal terminator captain the one swinging a huge sword ? Then he scales fine to the current plastic terminators.
The Deathwing one is the older metal one, back when the termies were smaller.

It is exactly the same as the Assault On Black Reach Terminator Captain.

cheers guys, yeah I figured the deathwing one might be a little small (not the prettiest model either!). So the normal one it is then.

The regular "Terminator Captain" is smaller than current Terminators. The Deathwing Sergeant I have no experience with, but he looks cool.

That guy is smaller than current Terminators. A friend of mine bought him for his Blood Angels and he comes up small. Smaller than a Tactical Marine even.

The details on his grieves are nice.

Actually I think you will find that the current metal terminator captain (the one pointing a storm bolter with a big power sword in his other hand) is also a bit undersized compared to the plastic terminators.

??? There's no such model....

Argastes my friend, you had exactly the same reaction as I did.

Now that I see what model was referred to, I can say from experience that the metal Deathwing Sergeant is also noticeably smaller than the current plastic terminators (he's the same size as all the other old metal terminators). It's a shame in both cases because the metal DW sergeant and the metal termie captain are both very cool models.
