I was looking at these and wondering if anyone uses them as an pro elf or dark elf blood bowl team. I am worried that they may be too large in comparison to other miniatures. They come with the fancier 30mm rounded bases, but the actual scale isn't listed. Any advise?

Not sure on those particular figures, but PP human(-iods) seem to be a little bigger than the equivalent GW race, but not by a lot.

And these ones seem to be a bit hunched over too, so maybe that will help give a better impression of scale.

Always thought they would make perfect vamps

I thought of Vamps too, but they all have masks on.... They have the right feel, but for whatever reason, I feel like they should have fast fang access! I'd be curious to see what they would look like next to any of the existing Thrall minis that are out there.

Me too!
Love how dynamic they look (AG 4 all over), and considering using them as Vamps, it wouldn't really bug me if they felt a tad bigger than their thralls, after all they are ST 4.

I ordered these for a vamps team but found they are massive compared to a lot of other BB models. I didn't end up using them.

They are nice looking miniatures and would look great in a team but just too big for me.

Ah - there we have it then! I like the miniatures, but this confirms my worry. Thanks!

I have them as well and had the same idea for thralls.

Both sets of miniatures are "Gaming Scale" and will look just fine together. The official scale on Privateer Press miniatures is 30mm- as opposed to the official scale of GW minis at 28mm.

Privateer Press' line has been subject to scalecreep for less than a quarter of the time GW has been scale creeping their minis, so they've ended up around the same size. Some PP humanoids are going to be a bit larger than some GW minis, but ultimately they fit just fine together (I've mixed the ranges for RPGs quite often.

As for the bases- those are 30mm bases, but the flat part on top is about 25mm across, so they'll fit on 25mm bases just fine. The only concern I'd have about that is when you're working with metal minis, they might be a bit top-heavy, so consider weighing down your bases a bit (I find that inserting nickles under 25mm bases is perfect for this).

No they don't work for me. But thanks for the suggestion
