Oh, wow. Some of those are pretty creepy. Especially Sahaquiel. I think our scales are a little different though. in this scale a minifig as around an eighth of stud. its supposed to be the same scale as this.
At my microscale one stud is equivalent to eight and two ninths studs in fig scale, as measured by a comparison between the fig-scale and microscale models of my Trattorian frigate and Natalya's destroyer.
If you built to Tahthing's scale it may be approximate enough for your models to fit in Scythe scale.
My own scale isn't actually set to a minifig to stud ratio - I simply based it off of a natural progression of what a vehicles size should be.
For instance, a fighter is almost always a stud sized craft, bombers and other small craft about the same.
Corvettes are usually a four stud affair - same with gunboats and the like.
Frigates? 6 to 9 studs depending.
Destroyers are 10 to 14 studs.
Battleships/cruisers and other true capitol ships? the size rests with how imposing you want the vessel to be - My ship designs, Dilanski's ship designs, Warheads ship designs and a few others rest in "steched" hull sizes - long sleek ships bristled with weapons. Others are of varying shapes and size - I have seen 9 stud long "dreadnaughts" and 3 meter long "dreadnaughts" all and the same so having a uniform stud to fig scale is kind of moot.
In practice? go with what feels right, and if scales are utterly incompatible then work out a way to make them fit - I had to do this myself when I built Natalya's SONKS in micro as everyone elses scales where smaller than my own and didn't do the vessel justice. In building up from there I found an acceptable length for Cruiser, Battleship and Carrier class vessels.
In the future I may do this with other forum members micro stuff - In particular Brag's stuff could do with a significant size upgrade to match with my own, and I could do with a challenge.
