Horus Heresy Space Marines miniatures size comparisonsThe new Horus Heresy Beakie Armor Space Marines miniatures are definitely bigger than we thought-  check out the size comparisons!

Tons of hobbyists showed up at Warhammer World for the Horus Heresy open on May 7th, 2022, and now we can see the true size of the new MKVI Corvus, aka Beakie Armor Space Marines Legionnaires.

We’ll start with the Horus Heresy Starter Preview, then jump into the new Space Marines miniatures size comparisons.

Horus Heresy Starter Boxset Has Been Revealed!

It’s time to get excited! Even though we don’t have an exact release date, it’s a good time to be playing Horus Heresy for sure!

Horus Heresy Starter 2

This is a complete game for two players in a box that’s packed with incredible new miniatures. If you don’t feel like sharing, it’s a fantastic way to start or expand a new Warhammer: The Horus Heresy army! The miniatures are all plastic and much easier to build, making the game more accessible than ever before. (Who are we kidding, you’re not going to share it…)

Horus Heresy StarterWe’ve been waiting on this new Horus Heresy box for so long now, and seeing it finally confirmed by Games Workshop at Warhammer Fest is quite nice.

So we know what is inside the box, and the value.  You will get 40 Mark VI Space Marines and the Cataphractii Terminators that were revealed to be the current plastic kit that we have seen for a while now, which is cool too!

But the big question on everyone’s minds seems to be how big are the new Horus Heresy Space Marines miniatures size and what are the comparisons to current models?

So let’s check out how big these new models will actually be.

While we’re here for the new sizing, after seeing the backpack, we’re not 100% sold on that element quite yet. Maybe getting a good look at the sprues will help with that some?

Regardless, while it looks like there is a bit of scale creep from the existing Horus Heresy Space Marines miniatures, it’s nothing that isn’t in line with the current trend for plastic Chaos Space Marines Legions and, of course, the larger Primaris as well.
