Minimate compatibility thread

Most of it doesn't because as Augie mentioned, it's too small.  However, I've found that some incidental stuff scales pretty alright - crates, oil drums, the occasional computer console -  so don't totally write the 40k stuff off.  I just bought some Reaper Miniatures spell effects and they look awesome.

PIC!!!

Somewhere in my stash I have a big Sentinel head that I bought from an US ebay seller ...bigger than the Legends item of which I have several ......somewhere :rolleyes: 

That doesn't help you . Check out what is on offer on US ebay when you tap in 'sentinel head ' , there seems to be a couple of options that might help.

I'd love one of those haslab items but maybe its good that its US buyers only :confused:

 

 

you actually helped a lot!  i found a file online that i had a friend print out and he already dropped it off.  Looks good too!  i have to sand and paint it but that can be fun.

Yeah dude, here's the assortment:

As you can see, the spell effects scale pretty nicely (I'm gonna use them for a Dr. Strange pic) where as the objects are close enough.  The Dumpster is a tad small, but works well enough and the concrete barrier works for what it needs to be.  Meanwhile, that big tombstone statue might be a little too small for it's own good, but I can still figure something out.

I got'em from Atomic Empire online, but they're all readily available at gaming stores so you got options if you want to dive in.

These are great! Funny enough the dumpsters look like apartment sized dumpsters for brownstones. So if you have any of those shots thought up that works. If you add the tombstone to another piece it could be taller and then work that way.

Man, with that Master Mold head and a handful of minimate sentinels, you'd have a very epic and pretty scale accurate scene.  Can't wait to see what you do with it. 

I hadn’t thought of that. Unfortunately the ML Sentinels don’t ship for another year.

But hey, I’ve already got a dozen or so Minimate sentinels to hold me over until then.

Crap! Someone did but I couldn’t find it with a scan. Maybe in the Ghost Busters thread?

I'm curious about the Back to the Future Delorean set. Wonder if it scales well.

Minimates are almost exactly the same height as a playmobil child. I use playmobil horses for my dollars trilogy mates. They're a little big but good enough for me. I think the vehicles would be too over scale personally. Furniture  is hit and miss.

Ikea is similar .

Seriously though .....each year I vacation to the same place in Crete ,it's maybe the only weeks of the year I forget about ...er..everything ... until I pass the toy shop in the nearby town with its real-life child -size Playmobil figure outside:huh:  If it were a Minimate I'd have had it away years ago & my annual pilgrimage holiday isn't complete until I've seen him it.

'Athens Times' Latest:  English kidnapper arrested at airport .....claims that he is insane.....everybody agrees
