Bot War and Wizkids Transformers scale?
« on: March 03, 2021, 01:27:34 PM »
I'm really excited a buddy and I ordered some Bot War stuff to get started. I got the Beast Lords (dinobots!) and he got some Deceivers. Then I remembered the Wizkids Transformers minis, does anyone know how they scale together? Could you use them together?

Also I'm obsessively looking at N Scale railroad buildings and terrain. I hear they scale a little big for 10mm but they're pretty awesome. Bot War also has some nice cardboard terrain, but my friend might have the Dropzone Commander card buildings stashed away somewhere.

For buildings in that scale, check out Japanese Railroad stuff; N is the most popular scale over there, and I got me some pretty cool buildings from there.

Also, check Ali Express, as they have some very affordable flat-packed polystyrene buildings in different scales. I've got a lot of those, for use with 10mm and 15mm armies, and they tend to work with both (if you squeeze your eyes a bit ;) ).

I have the entire not-Transformers line form Botwars, before they stopped doing them in anticipation of the Wizkids minis, and they're pretty small. Indeed roughly 10mm.

From what I hear though, the Wizkids ones might just be slightly larger. but then again, with G1 scales/dimensions all over the place, even in the cartoons, I'm sure they will combine just fine...

Yeah I've been checking out the N Scale buildings by Outlands, good stuff.

I might pick up the Wizkids autobots as they're pretty cheap and maybe I could use them to ally with my Beastlords.

Scale is screwy with the Wizkids models.  They look great.  However, Bumblebee is almost the same size as Prime as Megatron.  Which throws off scale completely.

About the size of an ogre from the Wizkids line, give or take.

Oh, well that's a little disappointing.
