PostSubject: Model dimensions database   Sun Apr 22 2018, 17:28

Hey all,

I want a place where I can quickly look up a model's dimensions for kitbashing / conversion purposes--since that apparently doesn't exist, let's take matters into our own hands!

A solid first milestone might be to compile Drukhari specs first (of course). From there, we could expand to other armies, be it Ynnari, Daughters of Khaine, whatever. I have plenty of Vampire Counts models that would be great for Drukhari conversions, for example.


The Template


I'd like to propose a standardized template. A template would essentially prompt contributors to be a little more granular--and without a template, users might only post overall dimensions--or worse, interpret "height" differently (ie some users include flying base, others do not, etc.). I hope this reasoning makes sense. I'm happy to revise the template itself if anyone has feedback!

Please post measurements in both millimeters and inches, if possible.

Name: (and note version, if applicable--see examples below)
Manufacturer:
Game:
Faction:
Material:
Base Type / Size:
Total Height:
Height (base to underside of model):
Height (underside of model to top):
Total Width:
Width (Wingspan):
Width (Body / Vessel):
Total Length:
Length (Tail):
Length (Body):
Dimensions of Notable Features / Weapons / Items:


I hope folks find this useful! I'll begin to contribute too, of course. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or feedback.

I like this idea very much. I do have a piece of feedback: units of measurement should probably be standardised. The only discrepency is with the base type/size that is done in milimeters. This is understandable because that is how GW measures the bases.

I hope this takes off Smile

Thank you! I had to run out the door and forgot to call out that measurements should ideally be in both millimeters and inches.

I think an image database would be even more to the point, although I think it would be much less likely to see completion. How nice would a template  like this be?

(I'm also sort of shoring up the first few posts in case we want to add the Drukhari submissions on the first page--preventing users from having to sift through the entire thread.)

(Like, for example, this post could be for a compilation of Drukhari vehicles. Maybe the one above is where Wych Cult models will go, etc.)
