Does anybody know what they are? It seems it'd be easy to find, but it definitely isn't. I mostly want to know for purposes of using other models in different game systems. Specifically, I'm looking for these:

Warhammer 40k - 28mm
Warhammer - 28mm
Confrontation - ?
AD&D - ?
Mage Knight - ?
Starship Troopers - ?
Lord of the Rings tabletop game - ?
Star Wars Miniature game - ?
Heroscape - ?

Thanks for any help you can give me

I pretty sure that Confrontation uses a 30mm scale and I think AD&D uses a varying scale (25-28mm?). LotR should be 25mm?

According to my measurements the average human Mage Knight figure is just about 30mm from base of foot to eye mounted on a 3.5mm thick combat dial giving the average human figure a total height of around 40mm.

Going by a few pics ive seen of the Heroscape figs they would be about the same size (30-40mm).

That link pretty much answers it. Cheers Brim!

Confrontation webiste says their average size is 32mm, but that includes Ogres and Goblins...

Glad to see they picked some good Confrontation miniatures for the scale comparison.

Holy crap I have some mage Knight Rebellion miniatures. They are much cheaper than GW minis but crappy paint jobs lol. But they still look cool. I dunno what the scale is. But the base is like 30 mm in diameter while WH40k minis base is 25 mm in diamter.

I'm surprised you didn't ask for Crocodile Games Wargods scale too (it's 28mm).

So what size will the Hordes Miniature Range be?
I'm especially interested in those guys , they seem to be close to Confrontation.

Perry Brothers 28mm. Not as bulked out, normal sized hands too.
Old Glory 25mm. When glued onto a certain type:D of base, they stand eyeball to eyeball to Empire foot. The cav aren't as big as GW's.

I am using OG's pikes for my DoW.
