Request for a favor (measurements)

Postby Big Bene » Wednesday December 7th, 2016 6:34am

This is to all of you who own Greed Workshop's skeleton minis and a caliper.
If so, you can do me a great favor by taking some measurements.

By skeletons I mean the standard troopers, both the old ones = Tomb Kings and the new ones = Vampire counts.
I use a Vernier caliper to take measurements on miniatures and related objects - and I'm sure I'm not the only one. It's cheap as dirt and extremely useful.

I'm currently overworking my own sekeltons, mainly rescaling them (well, this is euphemistic. Currently, I don't have time to work on the hobby at all). To make them look good in an army made mainly of minis by the market leader, I would need to get the measurements of these for reference. Just now, I can't afford to buy any models (I have some of the "old" skeletons), so perhaps you could provide me with some information. The more, the better, so I can calculate averages.

I would need:
Height of skull (plus information if the jaw is open or closed, and if it wears a helmet)
Width of skull
Height and width of ribcage
Width and (if possible) height of pelvis bone
If possible, height of lumbar curve (the "free" part of the spine between pelvis and ribcage)
length of both upper arms (please mark the measurements as "left" and "right")
length of left and right lower arms
length of left and right femurs (thig bones)
length of left and right lower legs
overall height of skeleton, from foot to tip of skull.

Please also give info, which model you used for measurement.
For the new skeletons, you may use the following reference:

For the old ones, as much as I know there are three principle varieties:
with left leg heavily bent, with right leg heavily bent, and with both legs bent equally and less strongly, plus the rider.

Thank you very much in advance!
Have a look ;)

I have updated the image (link was broken).
Will take the measurements of two minis myself today, but would still be grateful for input.

Thanx
Have a look ;)
