I have placed my order for French Late War (Brigade games and Scarab) and "Through the mud" rules.

I am contemplating the purchase of a second army for Late War (either Austro-Hungarians or Germans).

Do you have any way to describe the differences between Scarab and Great War sculpts?

thank you

let me summarize my findings:

For bulk and size both brands appear to be similar.

Scarab tends to be more on the cartoonish side with lots of character while Great War is more on the realistic side. Only slight nuances in the approach to the sculpt.

In terms of pose, Scarab is a bit more on the dynamic side while Great War would be a little more rigid. Again, these features are not exaggerated in one way or the other, it is just the direction the sculptors have taken.

All in all, both are compatible with very subtile artistic differences that are not significantly pushing in one way or the other. I ended up buying both.

I hope it is helpful to someone.
