Scale Comparison: 10mm Ogres from Black Gate as 15mm Brutes

I’m sure everyone likes it when a hunch, a calculated guess or even a gut reaction, turns out to be what you had thought. Such is the case from the new 10mm Ogres from Black Gate Miniatures currently running on Kickstarter with only a few days left.

Anyone who have seen the 10mm Ogres from Games Workshop for Warmaster will see how these fellas would make for an excellent addition to such a force. However, that’s not my main interest. Mine is from the 15mm perspective. I’ve even posted regards said miniatures before and their suitability as ‘uglies’ or thug types in a 15mm environment (though at the time I did not make any scale comparison shots to prove the point, duh).

My gut told me these were the same. After sending a couple of question to Black Gate regards scale Barry offered to send me a few early test casts to prove/illustrate the usefulness of these particular models with other 15mm miniatures on the market today. They have arrived, and I can happily say that I WAS RIGHT! (That feels quite good).

As a small return for a few free minis, I thought I’d post a few comparative scale shots with other manufactures in the market so that you lot can see for yourself.

First off, the casts sent to me, by themselves, tacked to washers that I normally use on 15s so that their height is adjusted accordingly when next to others.

Secondly, next to a GW Warmaster ogre and troll for the 10mm gallery so you can see how they tie in with those miniatures. Continue reading Scale Comparison: 10mm Ogres from Black Gate as 15mm Brutes

Mini Update: Flexi-scale Fanticide mounted brownies

If I had planned ahead I’d have taken some scale comparison shots of these 2 next to 15mm and 28mm brethren. As it is you’ll need to take my word for it that the brownies themselves are scale-wise the same as Splintered Light Miniatures sprites and fawns (which is really quite small) so these scale perfectly well with 10mm upwards in my opinion.

I bought these as a pack from Northstar during a sale though they come from Oz in the first place – Eureka Miniatures – as 10mm woodland creatures.

Scale Adventures: Mix and Matching scales (again)

Never one to be happy being force fed ‘miniature lines’ and ‘must use’ scales or particular models, I do like to experiment a little.

For example, here we have some rather excellent 10mm Hobbits from Copplestone Castings. The detail and character captured at this scale is amazing.

Now, you’d think 10mm Hobbits next to other scales would be ridiculous. Hobbits are already tiny. Well, perspective is all in the eye of the beholder. Continue reading Scale Adventures: Mix and Matching scales (again)
