Hey guys, can anyone post any scaled pictures comparing the miniatures in these to any others? Battlore/Battles of Westeros would be ideal

The perfect comparison would be with the Boromir model

Hallo Joe,
this is Boromir (from "War of the Ring" and two of the Normal Human Soldiers from "BATTLE LORE".

I think they do not compare very well for a "common" battle field - Boromir is considerably taller.

(Well - he might be, being a Numenorean, does't he? And the Men from Gondor and Arnor (Part of Northern Alliance) and the Beornings (descendants of Beorn) might be taller too, but the "Normal" Warriors fropm Rohan and Dale (Rest of Northern Alliance) are equally tall).

Greetings, Reinhard

Hallo Joe,

and here are some other folk:

Comparing figures from "War of the Ring" (WotR) and "Battle Lore" (BL)

From left to right:
ORC (WotR) & GOBLIN (BL)
WARG-RIDING ORC (WotR)& LIZARD(?)RIDING GOBLIN (BL)
GIMLI-DWARF (WoTR) & DWARF (BL)

As goblins are considered being smaller than orcs, and BL & WotR Dwarfs are about equal size - they might compare quite well on a common battle-field / table-top.

Greetings

Does anybody know how the Collector's edition figures compare to the 1st/2nd edition figures? I know the Collector's edition comes with a bigger map, does this mean the figures are larger as well? The 2nd edition figures are already pretty small.

They are the same figures, except for the Nazgul. The Nazgul figures were changed for the Collector's Edition, and those figures were carried over to the 2nd edition.

Darn, the figures are so small, I was hoping they made them a tad larger for the AR and CE editions.

That would defeat the purpose of offering a larger board.

One of the complaints with 1st edition was some key battleground regions (e.g. Osgiliath, Fords of Isen, just to name two) were very cramped. For the CE, the map was redrawn and several regions given more real estate than the old map. The 2nd edition map was a scaled down version of the CE, and thanks to the redesign, 'replacement tokens' were no longer part of the counter mix (they were meant to substitute for minis when you had large armies in a cramped region).
