ok, well im thinking of kitbashing(or watever its called) some vehicles(mainly tanks and aircraft) for the vehicles im told that 1/35 scale is the norm for most kits, but is this too big for 40K???? and for planes 1/48th seems to be the most common size but how does this look against normal figures(infantry)? is this too small/large???? i dont want this too look so screwed up etc. with the mismatched sizes, thanks
I think 1/48 is a bit big for planes. So somewhere between 1/48 and 1/72 for planes, but i have no idea for armour :confused:

Do you have uber micro...????
i want the sizes to be as close to warhammer scale as possible, keep in mind that there are peeps inside the cokpits of the planes and they gotta look similar in size to warhammer scale.
1/72 is too small. And 1/48 can look too large (but is often the only/best choice).
Your best best is to find something in 1/54 or 1/56 scale (which doesn't really exist). Some miniatures/model makers have been using (and by "using" I mean "starting to make stuff in" ) these uncommon scales because they look better with the 28-30mm miniatures like WH and WH40k.
I'd recommend getting a cheap 1/48 kit and see what you think. You may even be able to find someone in your local gaming group or at your nearest hobby store with some models so you can compare the sizes.
hmmmmmm....... well thats unfortunate, as ive found an awesome alternative to the basilisk, but its 1/35th scale i believe..... its called the as-90 by trumpeter, and i love the way the model looks in pics as opposed to the basilisk, but i would hate to have such a large oversize vehicle in my armored co. altthough i could come up with a fluff reason for it
I bought a load of battlefield accesories today, like fuel cans, jerry cans etc., and they were 1/35 scale, and the same size as the GW accessories
If you are doing it for orks, then it doesnt really matter what size you use- 1/35 would be a good scale for it, IMO
nah, im doing it for my imperial armored company that im working on, its about a foot long, i think it was 12.96 but i could be wrong, how long is the standard leman russ and basilisks?
I 'kitbashed' two 1/48 scale aeroplanes to make a fighter-bomber for my imperial guard army. The scale was perfect, although i have never actually seen any forgeworld aeroplanes, it seemed in proportion enough. It also had room for a sentinel pilot in the ****pit, without it looking stupid. I'll post some pics for you if you want.

I've converted my IG with 1/35 models. I have a photo of a scout track under the members miniatures gallery.
My blast template of S10 AP2 will toast all terminators.
cpt shortcut - hey that looks pretty good, what tank is that based off of? because depending on the vehicles actual real life size, the model could be more or less proportionate.... i came up with teh fluff reason for the oversized basilisks(in the event that they are) and hats because of theyre shooting power and necessary bulk, but how long is the average gw tank? you know like a leman russ' dimensions
colonel kilgore - do u have any pics? also what kind of plane were they based off of?
