How big are... -- Blackstone Fortress Miniatures -- Size comparisons

Hi all,

time for another episode in my "series", "How big are..."!

This time, the fantastic miniatures from Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress:


Let's start with the impressive and cunning Rogue Trader Janus Draik:
The (certainly) centuries of rejuvenation therapy (and maybe the long time spend at low gravity?) made this guy really tall! A whole head taller than the average Imperial soldier (which you have to imagine to be like Arnold Schwarzenegger!), just a bit shy of a Primaris. Most impressive! Well, I love this guy, and maybe this is simply the new "heroic" scale of GW! 

Next up, the Ministorum Priest Taddeus the Purifier:
 Good old Tad, is quite massive too. Certainly he did not have to fast on his crusade!

Here another comparison shot with the elderly Arch-confessor and Redemptor  Kyrinov

Looks like Tad definitely had an idol to inspire him (pose- and cloth-wise ;-). But certainly, he "outgrew" his old master.

Then, there is Missionary Zealot Pious Vorne:

Also Vorne steps into the footsteps of a previous great but anonymous Eviscerator Priest

Next up is Imperial Navigator Espern Locarno:
Well, Navigators are tall, fluff-wise I think? Also, as far as I know, there has been no other Navigator model yet, to compare to?

And, the unique (?): Imperial Robot UR-025:
First time in 40k that we encounter an artificial intelligence. Not much is known about this supposedly extinguished "race". I guess he could come in any size? 

Kroot Tracker Dahyak Grekh:
Unfortunately (shame on me), I have no Kroot model for comparison but he seems quite a big specimen as well (heroic).

Amallyn Shadowguide, Asuryani Ranger
Also no older ranger for comparison, sorry!

Ratling Twins, Rein and Raus:
 I have to admit, I really do not like ratlings! They remind me way too much of Hobbits, which I also do not like, sorry!!

Denizens of the Blackstone Fortress

The brave explorers encounter some nasty denizens:

Traiter Guardsmen:

Interestingly,  the Traitor Guardsmen are indeed the same size as Cadians. Soo much to a size creep in GW models...

Negavolt Cultists:

Chaos Beatmen:


Spindle Drones:

Black Legion Chaos Space Marines:

Rogue Psykers:
Hard to compare these guys of course, floating around like balloons.

And finally, Obsidius Mallex:
