Miniature Games Construction Yard

In this blog I'll talk about various miniature games. Custom miniatures and minor conversions are my favorite pastime. I'll cover scenery making and painting too. The WIP you'll see here is all about Necromunda, Epic 40,000, Warhammer Fantasy 5th Edition, Warmaster and Warhammer 40K 3rd Edition.

You probably have noticed it too. Latest releases by Games Workshop Ltd. include miniatures larger than usual. You will notice this in 40K with the new Primaris Space Marines, the Primarchs and others. In Fantasy Battle they have these giant Chaos Marauders and the Sigmarines. I don't like it. See following picture for the size difference. This change in scale is getting out of hand.



I wish they didn't do this. It's probably a commercial move to make old players ditch their small mini's in favour of the new releases. But for reasons of compatibility I'll need to start buying mini's from other brands and forget GW's new releases.

I have a solution to make (older) smaller miniatures appear to be bigger. But the reverse is not quite possible.
