54mm is really closer to 1:32 scale, so 1:35 is a bit on the small side, but it is just about usable, particularly with a little conversion or a thick base.

I find both scales are reasonable for use in Inquisitor.
1/35 or 1/32 vehicles on the other hand are hit or miss.

Anyone grabbed this guy?
I'm debating whether or not to get one to convert into a kasrkin.

No, but a couple of us bought the Space Guard (Mordian soldier) model when it was first released. Casting quality is good. He's reasonably tall for 54mm as well as I recall.
It's all fun and games until someone shoots their own guy with a Graviton gun instead of the MASSIVE SPIDER.

Nice minis.
Maybe I'll have to grab a guardsman after all.
Thanks!

Artel W have just release another 54mm model, this time of their new Inquisitor. He looks pretty fab, but is limited edition (only 150) and $40/30.

Have a feeling I should probably get a model or two myself before posting this, but Chaosorc has a small selection of models at the moment.

May have to play around with it a little, but did just notice that heroforge has XL Plastic and XL Steel options, bringing their 30mm minis up to 1:30 (about 54mm) scale.

Yes. This has not been tested due to the price (a 1:30 mini from heroforge will cost about $60).
It should be noted, however, that the print quality is pretty damn good for their 30mm scale minis (at $30 for the good stuff (premium plastic) this is a little more tolerable to swallow), so a 1:30 model might be decent if it is available in XL Premium Plastic someday.

The normal plastic isn't bad, but seems to suffer from a loss of detail - or details are fuzzier than the premium plastic.
