Ok so I had to share my thought on this...

http://www.hawkwargames.com/collections/resistance

I am really hoping the vehicles and aircraft scale anywhere close the Epic Ork models in my collection.

I also think the M9 Hannibal would be a great Imperial Guard (or what ever they are called these days) Leman Russ replacement.

To whom ever get them first please send out the proxie pictures when you get them.

Interesting range of wagons. Shame the battle bus has a gun crew that might betray the scale.

Having seen mikeT's DZC infantry up close they arent massively different scale wise to the GW epic models.... I reckon the trucks will be perfect for orks and latd.... personally this range blew my socks off and I'm planning to jump in to DZC with them :)

I've spotted a few vehicles for conversion to Epic in this range.

I reckon they'd make excellent Genestealer cult trucks too. Just remove the gunner so the scale doesn't show.

Oooo. That Jackson is a very pretty proxy cult Limo. Wonder how off the scale will be, though.

I don't like the game (mostly 'cause it's 10mm) but have to admit the models get better all the time. Will try some of the resistance vehicles with Gene-cult

The Breaching drill would be awesome for the Squats too. Anyone else think the Hannibal looks like a Merkava?

I agree ... most of those vehicles would work ... and IMO, much better than some GHQ which in my experience are too small. These Resistance vehicles as noted would be great for Stealer and Chaos Cultists and Orks too ... may have to invest in some of these ... :-\

Not if you use them as aliens like Ogryn types ... The Galaxy is a Big place ... not all life forms would be 6-8mm tall ... per se ...

In all honesty they could pass for 6mm infantry if you based em appropriately.... epic is definitely on the larger end of 6mm scale and it seems to me that DZC is quite true scale 10mm

It would probably be less apparent than the massive scale difference between some of the warmaster ranges.... and in game you probably wouldn't notice.....

I agree. Certainly I've been eyeing up the shaltari braves as cc wraithguard and they are very similar size. The shaltari are a good head taller than the dzc humans.
