Nope.

IIRC Hasslefree is 25mm models not 28mm, so they will look silly, and they don't seem to be Heroic models either, so the proportion will be wrong.

Well, to me that screams female storm trooper.

Scale wise, women tend to be smaller; I'd have to see a side by side comparison. Remember Forge World Elysian drop troops are smaller scaled than Voystrons.

Do what you think looks cool.

Storm trooper was what I was thinking too. I want to know what to use the rail rifles for, i was thinking melta guns.

also, will 3 millimeters really be that much of a difference I mean the average man being what 5' 10" comparatively that's 5'2" so She's short but not unbelievably short. and i like HF proportions a lot more. I just wish they had some male Sci-fi Soldiers. but she's 26mm so it's more like shes 5'5"

That first batch of guns is... oddly familiar. I'm going to hope they're certified material and not knock-offs. :P

Anyway, I agree with Krumpa and Sun that she looks very Stormtrooper-ish. A little short isn't bad; women to tend to be a little smaller than, *ahem*, us big, burly men. :P

Maybe do a google search, someone may have already posted picks, side by side with GW figures. I seem to remember a website, armymen somethingish. They posted size comparisons to literally every whole in the wall caster.

Rail rifles as meltas is fine, as long as your opponent knows what they are and is uniformly modeled on all proxied squads.

I think it will look cool.

I'm ordering them tomorrow, and I'm going to have to convert guardsmen specially for this project. So it'll be a while. but by the time i'm done my guard will look like no other. Including manticores as proxy Leman Russes.

I have that same model as a standard trooper in my Elysian force. Once Hasslefree finish the rest of her squad i'm going to get them as veterans with shotguns.
