The Scale of 40k: Learning Illustrator
Eventually I want to make an animation where it starts zoomed in on a human, and slowly zooms out all the way to an imperial battlecruiser! I'm also planning to do some for xenos races as well.
The way I have been determining the scale was by following the diagram in the back of the Imperial Armour books. I'll have to use some other methods of finding the size of the things that aren't in there (xenos stuff) but that shouldn't be too hard if I use the models as a guide, or any other references that I can find. Since the models aren't to scale, I only use them as a starting point.
So what do you think? The Land Raider and Rhino actually look like they would be able to transport the amount of troops that the rules say, boltguns are huge, and a powerfist is the size of a human torso! This really helps me to get an idea of just how big things are in 40k. Make sure to view the photo full size, and let me know what you think, or anything specific you'd like to see sized up against everything. Thanks for reading!
