and 1/72?, no way, thats tiny, guardsmen are taller than my 1/72 Jadgpather, heck taller than my 1/72 ChallengerII model WITH base

Actually Red the true scale of the new Baneblade is 1:61. You heated my blood so I did some calculations. At any rate this would make a real one about the size of my house. When is the last time you seen a tank as big as a standard house? I suggest you visit a model shop to see a 1:72 scale kit, and compare it to any GW vehicle.

Don't get so worked up.Actually Red the true scale of the new Baneblade is 1:61. You heated my blood so I did some calculations. At any rate this would make a real one about the size of my house.

1 - a Baneblade is, firstly, not real, and secondly,

2 - 15mill is still not 1:72

3 - I've been visiting model shops for many many years now, and I know the difference between 1:72, 1:48, 1:35, 1:32, HO/OO, 15mil, 25mil and GW's bastard 'Heroic 28mm' scales. Changes nowt. GW models are not 'realistic representations'.

In practical terms, the height and bulk of WH models (for bulk, compare them to the LotR models, much more 'true' to scale) mean that 1:35 scale kit from eg Tamiya looks about right. But that doesn't mean that WH actually 'is' 1:35 or any other scale. It 'is' 1:72, because 6 feet in the game is still equal to 1 inch on the table, 1/72 of the original.
