I just had a quick question for anybody who has the new Tactical Marines, or to anybody who has seen them. Do the new marines stand a bit taller than the old ones? The images on the GW site look as if they are a bit taller looking, but there is nothing to compare them to.

Thanks!

They are the same height as the old kit. They look taller because the armour is slightly more proportional. Example being the legs are slightly slimmer as are the arms. I am building my first tactical squad as I type this, just waiting for the glue on the base to dry.

I have a feeling (hope) they are a bit taller, in line with the Forge World sets. I believe this will be due to the bend of the legs in the old (and CSM) set vs the more straight and natural look of this new kit.

I may even pick up a box for conversion fodder.

IIRC the legs are more upright, but the overall proportions (excluding maybe thickness) are identical to the old set.

Hmm, that sounds interesting. I never liked the odd sizing of the old marines. You wouldn't happen to have any pictures to compare the two, would you? :D

I'm debating doing the same thing for my CSM!
