As the title states, my question is, "Are Old Glory 25's really 28's?" I have been resisting 28mm for a long time but am getting pushed closer to taking the plunge. Do they mix with Perry plastics?

They measure 26-27mm from base of foot to eye level.

And they actually 'mix' well with my old Scruby

Mixing plastics and metals always has some things that are a bit off. Especially the weapons metal castings tend to be super chunky to avoid being bendy.

Mix and match to taste. I tend to mix everything for the greater good of more pose variety!

They mix pretty well with Front Rank. I'm not sure I would put them in the same unit, but maybe. I had a unit of OG Russians standing next to a unit of Front Rank russians for awhile before I realized they weren't all Front Rank.

I have a mix of most in my Italian wars, WOTR, Polish and Ottoman Armies. It is not the size but more the sculpting style that precludes mixing in the same units, however different units in the same army work fine,

Tally Ho!

The second edition figures by Old Glory will fit with the Perry figures without much of a problem. Style and size they match up pretty nicely and a much lower cost than the Perry line of figures.
If I were building a large Napoleonic army I would use the second edition figures without hesitation. I believe there was some one who posted on TMP not to long ago about doing this, mixing Perry and Second Edition and the great cost savings by using the army card for the 40% off on the second edition figures.

The second edition AWI figures were excellent. I just wish that there were more poses available.

Can we expect any new sculpts?

Any Ideas when OG-2 will produce Poles? Really close to taken the plunge myself and Poles are the missing items from the club…. But LOVE the Perry's Austrians I have…

Possibly never. The new standard for 28mm Poles is Murawski Miniatures; check them out here:

Now, that's a strange thing to say. The fact that someone produces an exemplary range of figures has never stopped someone else from making them too.
