Can anyone tell me if these two companies will mix well together?

Irish Marine,
Caution. Most of my ECW are made up of Redoubt figures. I do have a few Foundry and about three regiments of Warlord plastics. So from that small sample I would say that height wise the two are fairly close. In terms of meat on the bone the Warlord figures are a little bit thinner. My tolerances keep Warlord away from Redoubt in their respective units. But since my Foundry tend to be individual snipers and medical teams I feel okay with them next to Redoubt. So to sum up I would think the two could mix well. While I doubt this was all that helpful its the best I could come up with. H

Hey thanks very much

The few Foundry command figures that I have are significantly smaller than my Redoubt figures and the Warlord figures fall somewhere in between although their cavalry seems smaller than their foot.

Clearly, I mix all three – and Bicorne and Renegade – on the same table but Warlord foot are a closer match to those than to either Foundry or Redoubt.

I have mixed Foundry and Essex which work fine. I bought a single Warlord figure which I felt was much larger than the other ranges.

Warlord figures can vary quite extensively in size. Their newer figures tend to be bigger than their older ones in ancients at least – I'm not sure how this translates across to ECW figures but I wouldn't be surprised if the same applies.

That said I think Foundry and Warlord generally tend to mix well. That probably shouldn't be surprising: I think there's been a degree of sculptor overlap, at least in the past. Certainly the Perry twins have done work for both companies.

Old Glory figures match perfect with Foundry, are beautiful sculpt, made in the US by US hands and are economicalled.

…economicalled

What's that?

That's called auto correct -- which I despise.

The old rough guide is Bicorne/Redoubt at the big end of the scale, and Perry/OG/Foundry at the small end, and they don't really go together to well. Warlord and Empress can go either way, either being slightly larger but fine with Perry, et al., or slightly smaller but fine with Bicorne/Redoubt.

There are a bunch of comparison pictures out there on the web of these ranges with each other if you go looking.
