Never seen or owned any edition of Space Hulk unfortunately, but at a guess probably about an inch. You can likely find more information - or a better way to estimate the sizes - from the Space Hulk BoardGameGeek page, where there are plenty of images, video reviews, etc. Not sure if the sizes may vary between the editions. I'd assume not, but you never know!
Thanks gents. I found a clear picture from the net of a Terminator on a tile. I know the Terminators have 40 mm bases, so, I estimated the size of the grid to be a bit smaller than 40 mm -> 30 mm. Grid highlighted in green.
So, I have made mine 30 mm. At the moment, I have crammed several tiles onto one piece of A4, but if I have enough white space around them, they cam be scaleable. Here's the basic corridor: Corridor 6x2 30mm.pdf (23.2 KB) (PDF file)

Nice looking set there. When I get the chance, I'll post some pics that I did of a Space Hulk set in 15mm scale. I have a whole tackle box filled with parts that I scaled in GIMP and glued onto some sticky-backed foam. I made the models of the SM and Genestealers from a game that I can't quite remember right off the top of my head, but you will be able to see them when I post them.
Edit: Going back through the threads, I found that I had already posted pics of it here.
Here is the link to take a look at the pics I did way back then.
2nd Edit: You can also make the grid any size you want to. If you want to stay true to the actual game format, I think the size is 40mm. I've done various attempts at anywhere from 15mm to 52mm sizes.

There's no such thing as sanity, and that's the sanest fact.
Before, when I googled space hulk tiles, I think most o what I found were people's own made ones - many had 2x2 squares, like mine, and so were quite elaborate.
But seeing Parduz's and regoogling 1st edition, I see they are quite basic.
While I do have GW's WH40k First Strike started set (with very unfinished figures...), I'm using Don Glewwe's Beer & Pretzels Space Marines rules for an intro in to wargaming for my kids and to get back into the WH40K feeling. Years ago, when I was given a bunch of space marine figures, I was planning on a Soviet Space Infantry theme, and painted them read. I then took a shine to the Blood Angels chapter and bought some Tyranids for them to fight against. I had originally used my son's Gormiti figures and a handful of Moomins. It was well after I got the Tyranins, that I saw that the original Space Hulk game had Blood Angels vs Tyranids.
Next, I'll see how well I can make them interlocking...
 I found a length of corridor on the net, from first edition, and have been playing around a bit - I found a way to add detail, like the stains, though I need to make them more opaque, as they print up lighter than they look on the screen.

As usual, my project progress is pretty glacial. A while back, I printed up several different tile sets, made with different applications and printed on different printers, on different paper types (including CD disc labels!), so they all look, you guessed it, different...
The beastie figures, I made flatter, (2,1D?), as they are easier for me to build and pack away flat.
I have also just started having a bash at making them interlocking. I haven't stuck the paper to any card yet:
For this one, I used KolorPaint, so it's quite pixelly. I usually use LibreOffice draw, but I used KolorPaint for speed.
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)

chiefasaur: Sweet tutorial! Now I know how to make paper minis ;P

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.
