Kind of a simple question that I'm sure gets asked a lot, but what is the scale of 40K models so that I can possibly use other models to use along with my GW ones?

1:48 is closest. Unfortunately that's a common scale for model airplanes but not land vehicles.

In WFB and WH40k, heads, arms, and weapons are done on a larger scale closer to 1:35.

In terms of pure measurements, GW 'infantry' are around 1/56 or so.
The problem with this is that it is not a scale used by anyone else for anything. Not planes, automobiles or trains.
1/48 vehicles are closest, but hard to find (and you want modern stuff as ww2 1/48 is still small). 1/35 ww2 stuff works for some vehicles (but usually, 1/35 modern stuff is big enough for a superheavy).

Die-cast (metal) vehicles are often available in 1/43 scale (which is generally because this does equate to a model railway scale), mainly civilian vehicles, though there are the occaisional military stuff done in this scale.
