Heavy Jacks and dreadnoughts also match well, and I suspect Colossi can do as titan's, no idea where light jacks or battle engines stand though.
the models are great, the only problem I have is that everything is made of BEEPEN METAL! if not for that I would defintly be tempted to run trenchers as Kreig proxy's. There just awesome looking.
The light 'jacks are variable in size. They aren't always much shorter than the heavies, but are often smaller in terms of frame. They're probably ~1.5 to 2x the height of a typical 28mm infantryman. There isn't really much in the way of equivalent size in GW terms, maybe stuff like Kroxigor, Ushabti, Ogryns, Rat Ogres in terms of height and frame.
You should be pleased that some of the infantry are still metal. The PP plastic is appalling, and far inferior, as well as different in consistency to the GW stuff. In general, the mould lines are poorly positioned, the pieces do not come on sprues, leading to frequent bending and sometimes damage, and the material is an absolute ballache to clean up with a craft knife, as it has a slight rubbery consistency. It doesn't preserve detail very well, and does not take a file well AT ALL.
Just my experience, having desprued a bunch of PP plastic 'jacks and some of the Cinerators.
The PP metals on the other hand are often very detailed, though some of the older models do not necessarily fit together particularly flush (especially in the hordes range), and some of the really old ones lack detail as the mould has worn down.
