Heresy Era Iron Hands - Sicaran size comparison shots

I've been asked by a couple people how big the Sicaran is in comparison to a Land Raider, so while I was working on finishing up the paint scheme on 'em, I snapped a couple comparison shots with it and a 'modern day' Land Raider. It's big!

The main hull is about 3/4ths of an inch shorter than the Land Raider, but the turret makes it a bit taller. It's also about an inch narrower overall.

The Land Raider is about an inch and a half longer, and the overall hull is significantly more substantial, which makes sense as it's a troop carrier.

Overall the Sicaran is much more svelte but I was surprised at just how big it really was when set side-by-side! Since these pictures were taken, the Sicarans have been completed, pics to follow soon!


  1. That is pretty impressive in size. Thanks for the pics.

  2. Don't want to suggest I've been out of the loop, but I honestly had no idea that these tanks existed!

    Nice work, mate!

  3. @TheAmbit: I was honestly surprised when I sat them next to each other!

    @jugger: Indeed! It's a pretty solid piece, too - definitely has some heft to it!

    @Admiral Drax: Hah! This is the first marine vehicle I've seen in a long while where I thought "Yes. I need to build and paint one of those!" :)

  4. I think the size of the turret made me think it was going to be bigger when compared to the Land Raider. It's like some sort of optical illusion... if the enemy squints their eyes just right, it looks 3d... like it's coming right at them! Oh wait, it is.

  5. I am of course, imagining that I can see common design features... arn't I ?

  6. @The Inner Geek: Indeed! It's a bit of an Escher model. :)

    @Zzzzzz: Well spotted! It really has a lot in common with the FW Proteus, they look very natural next to one another. I'll get some army pics sorted out soon!
