How do Pendraken, Plank Road and Cracker Line minis match up in size ?

Extremely well, and I designed them to do so.

I posted the above some time ago on TMP. The information is also on my site.

This should help.


Plank Road was formerly know as Starfort.

Is the OG figure standing on a hill? It looks like without that base it would be more like 8mm tall. I have never seen the figs so that is why I am asking.

The OG 10mm are on strips of 5 and the bases are very thick.

AIM are no longer available.

GHQ use very bendy metal and after their first outing the rifled muskets will be bent out of shape.

Pendraken are very nice figures.

The GHQ are very nice and very small. I started in 10mm ACW 25 years ago. 10 High was pretty much it. Much of my armies are made up of them along with Old Glory and AIM. I still have 400 Old Glory to finish. I have about 1600 figs already painted. I will be using Altar of Freedom for rules rather than my old favorite VnB.

That is a great comparison and very helpful. Thanks very much.

For 10mm ACW, have a look at the GHQ line of miniatures.

@HistoricalGamer. Let me know if you need more information

Nicely done. What are the dimensions of the grid behind them?

jaxenro09 Mar 2015 9:51 a.m. PST

Looks like inches divided into eighths making the figures about 1/2" tall to the top of their hats
