Has anyone ever did proper measurements for the following in TRUESCALE EPIC: ? :-\ :sos
1) Leviathan
2) Capital Imperialis
3) Ordinatus Majoris of the Adeptus Mechanicus

How would we? There aren't any established sizes, as far as I know. All we could do is estimate that they need to be twice the length of the old Epic models, or 1.5x.

For one and two I'd say the very very rare forumware hungry whale and WMN Capital Imperialis proxies would probably fit the bill. I've got both stashed away in boxes still so perhaps someone else with one could drop the measurements on us?

Since there's nothing official size wise for an ordinatis but having seen the TMG conveyer, it's about right sized for one I feel. Again, someone else can bust out a ruler.

Truescale Capitol Imperialis would be around 20cm tall at a rough guess. I found this online:

Not really practical to produce a model that big, I think.

Why that? Would be very interesting to encounter such a monster on a field.

Casting would cost a lot, so it'd be expensive to produce, and I suspect it'd have a low sale rate.

Seen this way, you are eventually right.

I reckon you'd be better off converting your own using something like a 40k land raider as a basis....

Hi!

I own WMN's custom Capitol Imperialis. Its larger, but no where near what that diagram above says it should be.

As already mentioned the limitations on size are purely "techical" as in materials and cost.

Give it some time though, once my queue thins out I may tackle this topic. ;)
