Tabletop Gallery: “For the Emperor”

Time for a scale comparison gamers!

Enjoy. If you have an awesome wargames shot you think would make a great BoLS pic of the day, email us. We love spectacle and characterful shots so lets see what you budding photographers can do! Warhammer 40,000, Age of Sigmar, X-Wing, Warmachine/Hordes, Runewars, Bolt Action, Armada & Flames of War miniatures photos are welcome.

    Seeing the size comparison, I’m even more impressed with the pricing for both the starter set and the standalone AT-ST box.

    • euansmith

      I wonder if that is that FFG AT-ST or is it the Bandai one?

    • marxlives

      It is one thing seeing the Legion models but it is another seeing them next the 40k stuff. I almost feel bad for the Ultramarines. And when you look at the price point, man GW is a bunch of robbers.

      50 bucks for the AT-ST and 155 bucks for the Titan.

      I think we may see some price deflations in the future unless Legions becomes dominate miniature game on the market.

      • YetAnotherFacelessMan

        Granted, I imagine the AT-ST is a monopose model that can’t even be called a proper “kit”, whereas the titan is modular, has fully-functional joints, and spare options… but yeah, that big a model for that small a price (especially when you consider it comes in a $90 starter set) is REALLY impressive.

        • Two clarifications:

          1:) AT-ST is not in the starter set. It is a standalone kit that should be available at product launch.

          2:) AT-ST is fairly posable. The neck joint is ball and socket, and the leg joints can all be glued however you want. Not the differences in how we built the pose of ours in the top pic to how FFG built theirs a couple of comments up.

          • @bols2008:disqus – how hard would it be to magnetize (or maybe pin) the head? So I can turn it in the game?

          • It could be done, would need a larger beefy rare-earth magnet – due to the height and mass of the head. Look at our unboxing video here to get a better idea of the kit pieces:

          • Thanks for the link & info! 😀

          • YetAnotherFacelessMan

            Ah, I see now. 1 commander each, 2 units of troops each, one mounted trooper each.

            I was assuming the AT-ST and Snowspeeder were in the starter set since I kept seeing them in all the articles people were writing.

          • Starter box is a really solid deal. To buy all the included units a la carte adds up to nearly $200. Starter set is $90

        • marxlives

          Darn it and I wanted my AT-ST to break dance!

  • Emprah

    Smurfs are not tall and 40k doesn’t like big kits really big.

    This is how Warlord titans got halved in size from 60 meters Proximus to 30 meters Mars pattern.

  • Sleeplessknight

    Whoa, Those Legion models look big. Are they closer to 1:48 scale?

    • TenDM

      I think we’re just used to towering Imperial Knights being three Marines tall. It doesn’t look right to me but at the same time it matches the movie.

    • Fredddy

      More interesting to me is that the stormtrooper is taller than the Primaris. They are most likely actual 1/48. (Which is great because of there are many 1/48 SW vehicle kits out there from other manufacturers.)

      • I’m already looking at the U-wing and Falcon toys that came out with Rogue One at target and Wal-mart. The right scale and dirt cheap. Solid foundations for some big terrain pieces.

  • markdawg

    AT-ST is AWESOME! I can’t wait for Legion!

    • marxlives

      I feel you man.

  • georgelabour

    40k still wins because chainsaw hands on giant robots.

    Also , no Ewok or mandalorian armies yet.

    • I CAN’T wait for LEGION meta articles…

      “Ewok Hordes are OP”
      “Presenting Javapalooza”
      “In defense of Stormtrooper gunlines”

      🙂

      kidding, not kidding…

      • Emprah

        What about a pure gungan army? You know you want General Jar Jar Binks.

        • MY EYES! THE GOGGLES THEY DO NOTHING!

  • Marcus Clark

    Everyone knows GW scaling is way off, quite common.
    I am impressed with the AT ST. Can only imagine how big an At AT would be. I doubt we would see the model for it.

  • Sir Postalot

    Whoo, thx for showing me this. This opens some new conversion possibilities : D

  • orionburn III

    Oh. My. I had no idea that AT-ST would be that big. That’s pretty damned awesome.

    • marxlives

      Ya, and I think it was mentioned above already but considering the price point wholly smokes I am very excited about legion

  • ZeeLobby

    That AT-ST will be mine… Oh yes if will.

  • Fergie0044

    Is it just me, or does the airspeeder seem too small? I figured it would be the same size, if not bigger, as the AT-ST?

    • I also freaked out as I expected the speeder to to be bigger, but I think it’s correct according to canon.

      If you go back and look at the Hoth battle scenes the speeders are fairly small compared to the AT-ATs.

      As an example, much smaller than X-Wings. Basically A-wing sized.

  • dark-tadpole

    I didn’t realise the size of the Legion models, very impressed, more tempted now (not that size matters).
    I still want to see them in person though

  • dark-tadpole

    Does anyone know if these are a nice hard plastic that you can use plastic glue on or do you need super glue?

    • super glue

      • dark-tadpole

        Thanks, and what’s the quality of the plastic like?

  • Rafał Pytlak

    Holly sh…. Strormtroopers equally big as Primaris? That means your regular Blood Angels is a head shorter than your Emperor’s (Palpatine) finest…that’s huge).
    Also that At-St is georgaous! Now that would make a cool sentinel proxy making SM jealeous of the Astra Militarum boys. Heck, even the Mechanicum blokes would get a cyberdong hard on?
