Guys, I need some input. I'm considering buying some figures from the Old Glory 15s site (Specifically from their FOG armies, Swifter Than Eagles list). However, there are no photos of the figures.

It's not the quality I'm concerned with. I've seen other figures they make and they look great. I just need to know if there are multiple poses in each pack or are they all the same? Multiple poses = good; one pose for everybody = bad.

Mycenaean has multiple poses. I would get the Magister Militum chariots though, as they are more accurate. Let me know a thursday you'll be down and I'll bring my army into GHG!

Mark Reed in San Antonio has a bunch of former Chariot bags. I think these were bought by MM? You can reach him through the LSHM main Yahoo Group. He was selling these for only $2 USD a bag. Not sure if he still has them. He bought out a store's inventory and had a shed load a while back.

All OG 15s are multiple pose bags across all ranges I have ever seen--and I own at least 10,000 figures across the ACW, AWI, SYW, ancient, and medieval ranges. In the 50-count bags, you used to see 5-7 poses of figures or so. I would think the 24-count would have at least 4 poses if not more, though one pose or two wil likely be more numerous than others (I haven't bought more than a few of the 24-count bags).

Have you looked at the standard bag page ratehr than the FoG packs link Most have pictures.
Sometimes it isn't straightforward to know which figures have been used to make up a FoG BG if there isn't a direct match but generally they are okay.

All the OG bags I've bought have been mixed though you do sometimes get rather more of one or two poses than the others.

I have heaps of the egyptian and all of them have multiple positions. Great figures. The chariots are really nice as well.

Put "the way back machine" into google and then enter the old website addy (oldglory15s.com) and you can navigate to find pictures.

Eg:

Used to be a lot cheaper then they than they are now. Wish I'd pulled the trigger on that cartload I had :(

Hope that helps.


*Edit: cancel that; it doesn't seem to have the pics archived after all, though you could change the date and try again*

Hi,

The most limited number of poses I've seen on some codes are 2. Most that I've seen (greek, successors, persians, mongols) have more.

Try the Viking Forge:

Every one of our 300 different ancients has a photo with this same quality.
