what is the best scale of models to use for making conversions and finding add-on bitz that are not GW. i am looking to use some SMs for minis in my shadowrun game and want to make some cool setting stuff. i also have ideas for vehicles i want to make for my SMs but GW just does not have what i am looking for. thank you for your time and any help.
Most Gw models are 28mm. I don't know what this is in terms of a ratio but I THINK its about 33:1.

i have seen some weapon packs set at 1/35th scale that looked close. has anyone tried working with that scale? i have also been told there is not hard and true "scale" conversion for most of the 40K vehicles in relation to the troops themselves, is this true? should i just bite the bullet and pick up something cheep to see what works?
Plastic card and patience are the best method to scratch build in my experience.
I don't understand what your trying to do but if it's "true scale" marines you want it requires a steady knife & file hand and terminator legs.
I'm TRYING to help.
i am looking more for a scale that fits true to the size of the minis as they are. moding the marines is kind of going the wrong direction from what i am trying to do, but thank you for the suggestion and that sounds like a fun project to work on. the goal is to find say a car that a space marine as is would look right driving or at least standing next to it.
Hmmm...sounds like my assumption was right (somewhat) try warseer.com that's where i went for Pre-Heresy World Eater ideas and there's a thread called Pre-Heresy World Eaters ZOMG!
It's an entire "true scale" marine army, he talks about how he did it as well. If i missed the point though, i'd still go to that thread and ask the guy the same question.
Just trying to help.
If I am understanding correcting the scale question is for the vehicles not for the marines.
Are you trying for vehicles that are to scale with marines? or simply vehicles that are to scale with exhisting 40k universe vehicles?
looking for in scale with the marines themselves more then anything but fitting in with other vehicles would be nice too. i think i found a good answer to to my question at this link here:
if anyone have better info or can back this info up from personal experience that would be most helpful. thanks you all again for the help.
