Some new comparison photos on the blog featuring Offensive Miniatures Napoleonic figures…

Thanks for this review. The photos of the painted examples at your blog are really helpful. You're right, the plastic figures are much larger. Can you compare Offensive to Front Rank and Foundry?

Can you compare Offensive to Front Rank and Foundry?

My experience is that Offensive mix very well with Foundry, size and style-wise. I believe Mark Sims used to work for Foundry (?), so he has their style down. They work even better with Crusader minis, since those were also done by Mark Sims, apparently using the same dollies he used for the Offensive ones (can anyone verify/deny this?).

Forget using them with Front Ranks. They'll look like boys compared to FR's (admittedly well-sculpted) giants.

I just received two packs of Offensive Miniatures 95th Riflemen. They are noticeably smaller than my Perry 95th Riflemen (painted as 60th Rifles). However, they are going to be based in their own unit so wont be a problem. I have Hostspur units in my army – and they are true 25s. One may look good as a Rifleman Perkins next to a Giant Harper:)

Where did the Hotspur Napoleonics go to?

Has anyone done a comparison between the Warlord plastics and Front Rank? They look comparable and the plastics need fleshing out with figures such as skirmishers, NCOs, etc.
