A race that uses genetic manipulation to the extent the Cusaltreen do can be hard to classify but certain life forms seem more numerous than others. Although clearly part of the elite caste system, the 'Standard' Cusaltreen trooper is seen in enough numbers that it can be concluded they are a fairly common species type in the Cusaltreen hierarchy.
This is 1/48 scale? Yes... and no.
At true 1/48 scale many of the human limbs print at 1mm or less and this makes for super fragile figures. All of the prototype figures printed needed me to sculpt a layer of epoxy putty around the wrists(which is a good preventative fix btw). So I was forced to make all of the womens limbs thicker and a good few of the thinner men. Likewise for all weapons- at scale they are often 0.5mm or less. Will that print? Yes. Will it make a miniature that you can handle- NOPE.
Aside from the above compromises I have used 1/48 scale to set the height of my figures. I chose this scale as it actually covers a fairly wide range of heights. Because I am doing character models their heights will vary:
Measuring from toe to top of head (because thats how we do it with miniatures at scale)
a 25mm figure is 4 scale feet high a 30mm figure is 4 foot 9 inches at scale a 32mm figure is 5 scale feet high a 36mm figure is about 5 feet 6 inches (close enough) a 38mm figure is 6 scale feet high etc
