The models got a lot of similar weapons scouts can use (Bolters, shotguns, bad looking Bolter revolvers, and sniper rifles)

And they seem to be smaller than mk4 Marines (betrayal at calth marines) but bigger than chaos cultists.

Thoughts?

Yep - I’d like to hear folks thoughts as well. The official scout models are rather underwhelming.

I think they'd be great as Scouts.

They are great, but they are bigger than mk4 calth marines. Use them as truscale scouts

Open for Comissions, just PM me. The Wardens of Light were like golden blades, cutting down their enemies scarring the darkness.

Or Primaris Scouts who've already gone on the path of getting swole(r than normal marines already are)?

This was my plan, but after building a few they just don't work as space marines for me. They are tiny, they just stand out as humans.

Can we get a size comparison shot?

Calth marines kinda got that transitional stance between New Tactical squads and Deathwatch and the Older Tactical Squad box.

I'll see what I can do insofar as a comparison shot.

All the Necromunda models are bigger than the traditional 40k line, they're totally doable as scouts if you paint them like your chapter. 

 

I was considering Enforcers as Inquisitorial henchmen...then I got the female gang whose name I can't remember to make Death Cult assassins for my Inquisitor and they're so much taller happy.png

I really don't see them in that way. They are a lot closer to my DKK in scale than my space marines. I don't think that's good advice that you've just given. The Goliath gang are huge because they are steroid ridden, and the Escher have some kind of Amazonian thing going on.

Well I bought a bunch of Necromunda stuff and even their hands are bigger as GW model scale is creeping up to fit 32mm bases.

Orlock and Cawdor are the exact same size as the current Chaos Cultist models.

 

The Necromunda gangs seem to have scale all over the place because they're actually properly-done humans who have more height variance than GW has ever represented in their models.

If he likes the look of the Enforcers they're fine for scouts if painted the chapter colors, that's my point.  My Deathwing army has the 4th edition Terminator plastic bodies, the old metal Terminator captain (who looks like someone's little brother biggrin.png ), little Lysander with LCs as Belial who can no longer take LCs, and the new plastic Terminator captain who stands at least a head taller than the old one.   I even have an old Terminator Inquisitor who's positively puny when standing next to his GK allies.  While I'd love for everything to be right it's just a matter of when I bought it.

 

In the end model aesthetic choice is up to the people buying the models and the scale is the scale. I think Orlocks look like linebackers compared to regular 40k infantry and SM transport models are like half the size they should be. The official art has a Carnifex being the size of a Rhino.
