1920 Cthulhu mythos size comparison

 I am a part of "Eldritch" group on facebook where I was asked for size comparison photos of BCB miniatures. I've added some others in the mix and decided I'll make a post out of it. I can also proudly say I am painting something as we speak so next post will be proper post again!

I have decided to show mostly humans, as showing monsters doesn't really make much sense, but I could do that if needed.


I will keep it short, below every picture manufacturers will be listed left to right.
 BCB (Black Cat Bases), Artizan, BCB, EM4, BCB werewolf, Mantic, Artizan, BCB
 BCB, Artizan, BCB, EM4 (smaller)
 BCB, Mantic, Artizan, BCB

 BCB, GW Ungor, Dixon (larger), BCB
 Dixon (smaller), BCB, EM4, BCB
 BCB, Artizan, EM4, BCB

Hope it proves useful,
Mathyoo

  1. Nice comparison photo. It might also help to remind people how physically tall your lantern guy is or have a ruler or something in one of the shots. It makes it more concrete that way.

    1. Ruler is actually a very good idea, got to keep that in mind for the next one. Good point!

  2. Good shots, but missing the all important baseline ruler.

    1. I don't care much about the height differences myself, but it is interesting how Dixon, for example, has them in two very different sizes.

  4. I quite like some variation in figure sizes in 28mm figures. After all not everyone is 6 feet tall exactly. Nicely done Mathyoo. always good to see some comparison shots as it indicates not only scale, but also sculpting style.

    1. I agree, but for some, it presents quite a problem. As far as I am concerned, I think it isn't even noticeable when they're put on a board with terrain, painted and not put right next to each other. It all blends in.

  5. Thanks for the comparison, that's most helpful. Scale diagrams were actually something we were discussing on another forum recently and is something I want to try and do for each manufacturer I paint something for.

    I have cunning plans ;)
