Surely that would make him larger than he appears in fact... The further back he is, the smaller he should be. So bring that guardsman level with Thiel and he's even taller.

What i'm getting at is the angle. It looks off to me. So to me, that could be makes him look taller. That or his is just a tall guardsman.

Its computer generated artwork. It is how the author wants it to look. So sue me...

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

This is how they should appear in comparison to humans:
And yet in the Unremembered Empire pic, the humans look too small, next to Primarchs though they be, and the regular Marines look on a par with the Primarchs in size.

You are right but this scale is also wrong those are primarchs are the same as marines in comparison to human, but marines in comparison to demigods

I don't see how either of you think the Space Marines are the same size-wise to the Primarchs in the UE picture. They reach their waists max.
