Quick Size Comparison

A while back I posted my 15mm sci-fi dwarf army which features a pair of heavy power armor troops.  The main force is composed of rebel miniatures with a few 15mm.co.uk figs for a command squad.  The power armor consists of Hasslefree's 15mm Grymn figures.  Now you can buy assault backpack weapons that make the things look even more...mechy?  Mechish?  Mech-like?

I'm not a big fan of the sprues.  They look a little over the top for my tastes.  And I'm not a big fan of using the Grymn figures for standard power armor.  The limbs are not proportioned right to fit a human sized trooper like armor, and the chest cavity looks like a tight fit for a guy curled up in the fetal position.  Some folks disagree, and in a bid to save them from the path of error, here's a quick shot proving that I'm right.

Naturally, this is a YMMV situation, but if this reference photo helps folks make up their minds one way or the other, it's worth it.  Here we can see that the Grymn figures tower over humans, standing somewhere between 12 and 15 feet high.
