I know this exists out there somewhere, but my GoogleFu is weak this morning.

I'm about ready to start the process of stripping an old incomplete army to revamp it to fit the current rules and my improved paint skills, but before I do I'd like to figure out the best uses for a bunch of the models. My impression is that the sizes of both Power Armor and Terminator armor have increased over the years to a sufficient amount that old-model Terminators might just be the right size to use for particularly ornate power armor. If anyone has some general photos comparing such things over time, I would appreciate sharing the images or links.

The specific models I have in mind are the old Inquisitor in Terminator Armor (I have the one on the right, with the bionic leg) and Grey Knights. I'm thinking that with a little bit of tweaking (though it will pain me to chop up these old models) they will make for rather nice power armored/artificer armored figs.

Your impressions, Dakka?

i happen to have some ancient chaos termies and a few new ones. their tiny. so small its hard to imagine that a marine would even fit inside it.
personally id be carefull using them as ornate powerarmor since you end up with an army of children in hunched armor....

Old school termies are smaller. They can just about pass as being the same as modern termies with elevated bases.

Not so important when it's the INQUISITOR in terminator armour that he mentioned.

Not many inquisitors are 8' tall, psycho-indoctrinated holy-warrior killing machines - so a slightly smaller model for him is fine.

I have some of both the really old metals, some of the newer metals and the plastics - the old metals are definitely shorter and narrower than the newer plastics - by a quarter inch at a guess.
