I got some questions before I can start:

How tall should a Slaneesh Daemon knight be?

How tall should a Slaness Scout Titan be?

What are the dimensions of a Defiler?

THX in advance!

Herow!

So a Slaaneshi Knight should be around the size of a normal knight IMO, so about the size of a tacmarine.

I'm currently making a warhound, and I think them and subjugators are around the same size, so you could use a termy as the base, although an eldar or dark eldar may be better.

Looking forward to seeing what you do! Be sure to post pics here! ;)

That is what i was guessing....the legs about the size of the legs of an 28mm miniature. I was thinking about the legs of daemonettes...maybe necrons, but the warrior legs don not have a good walking position. What about the legs of a genestealer? Might work to....

I think those may be too small, but you could always try!

this may be a good reference for a defiler conversion :) most parts are easy to pick up affordably on ebay or are lingering around in people's bits boxes ;)

Actually they scale up well next to the old forumware defiler models, I could do you a picture tomorrow if you like.

I've ordered a pack of those warcrabs to use as yet more defiliers Chris. I'm thinking they'll be about the same size as the 8 forumware ones I've already got.

Here's a picture showing the relative size of those defilers to some other EA units.
