Does anyone know how Tin Soldier's UK 15 mm figures are size wise when compared to other makers like Peter Pig, Essex, Old Glory or Minifigs 15 mm figures? Can you mix them?

Here are some comparisons:

Here is a side-by-side with an Old Glory figure:

I have mixed Minifigs and Tin Soldier with no issues.

I found the Tin Soldier Boers to be a bit bigger than Minifigs and a lot bigger than Irregular and Naismith.
The poses are very nice.
The horses are sturdier and bigger than Minifigs.
I have Minifigs, Irregular, Naismith and Tin Soldiers Boers (I don't think as a matter of personal taste, that the Essex figures mixes with the other styles)
I tend to use the prone figures happily, but from biggest to smallest I use Tin Soldier with Minifigs and then Minifigs with Naismith and Irregular. Naismith I don't have based with Tin Soldier as the size difference is too much for me.
Hope this makes sense.
