Just looking for a few opinions about the Old Glory 10mm Grande Scale.
Infantry packs say 100 figures.
They look like 5 figures per strip, so I'm guessing there's about 20 strips?

How are they in terms of clean up and clarity…as in visual appeal?

Thanks,

Doug

I own their Acw and Ecw ranges. The figs are very clean and are 5 figs per strip. They are good castings. I really like the visual they provide. Their skirmish packs have individual figs. They are a good value at regular price. If you are an Old Glory member they are an OUTSTANDING value!

Thanks,

John

I love their ACW range! They are very nice figures and look great when painted up. I am considering doing Napoleonics from OG next.

I have two 10mm armies (English and French) for WSS, based for Maurice on 1"x1" square bases. The figures are delightful, and easy to paint. If they had been available when I started Miniatures in 1990, I would do all my H&M armies in 10mm Old Glory.

The purpose for the straps was two fold.
1. Ease of painting
2. Ease of basing
It gives a wonderful look of mass dense ranks of men without having to tediously fiddle with individual figures as you attempt to stand them up as the glue dries?
Where applicable, figures that would/could be used in skirmish formation, cavalry, artillery, generals are individual castings.

I have their Napoleonic and ACW ranges, excellent figures. Very crisp detail and surprisingly easy to paint. For the ACW, I actually cut my strips apart into clusters of 2-3 figures to make my lines a bit more ragged. Can't recommend them enough.

Sounds good guys. Thanks

Hi

I like these figures but having spent too much time painting H&R & Naismith Napoleonic's with sculpted flags I don't think I can go through that again…

How long are the strips? 1"

Check this blog (not mine) out to see the visual appeal of 10mm Old Glory Naps: link Really inspiring stuff. I've gone for Pendraken but there's so much to be said for the Old Glory.

Hopefully a related question and not a hijack of the thread, but what mixes with OG 10mm? The Lord Ashram OG 10mm Napoleonics are inspirational, but my one picky reservation is the absence of pose variation in a unit – or is it there up close?

Prince Alberts Revenge01 Jan 2018 6:07 p.m. PST

The Napoleonic figures seems to have less variation, the ACW stuff has quite a bit.

From my research in starting ACW 10mm, the OG is not animated so the NAp are most likely not either. Need to inquire closer with phone call or E-mail since web site is not always clear to that fact.
Pendraken is animated in both ACW and NAP.
The OG 15 are very animated and I have 1000s of them ( a good consideration/alternative).
Hopefully someone will jump in who can provide a link to a comparison made for NAps ( ACW is on the good ground miniatures website)that will guide to which mfg to best mix with the OG to give the variation, if at all.
For example I am mixing my Good ground ACW with the pendraken and MM to add to the variation. You could probably do something similar.
Unfortunately, this my limit since I just started 10s and in ACW only, plus the 10mm NAP blogs I have following are in pendraken only.

Good luck and plan well before investing.

Thanks MarshalGreg; good advice – except for the bit about planning well, which for me is how things start out before the cossack approach takes over :)…

Doug Eagle I remember reading somewhere, I think here on TMP, that the strips are not uniform in length, but that the variations were minimal. Thoroughly unhelpful I know, but it suggests you should leave a margin for error when making basing decisions (oops non-cossack planning muscling in).
Kurtus Brown (I think his name is) has a youtube posting labled 'Black powder challenge under his 'A dash of elan – wargaming' lable. He bases all his OG 10mm on 30mmx 20mm bases, and does a full OG variety of units, primarily french and russian, so this should be some indication of the basing size needed, if that helps.
I have ordered GHQ, mystery ebay purchase, flashing blade, and will sample Pendragon MM and hopefully Bent Sinister which (coming from 20mm or 1/72 which I think does superbly sculpted figs) I think has a lot of elegance. But these things are all in the eye of the beholder, and one person's elegance is another's stick insect…
So very glad you started this thread DE, and look forward to seeking what choices you make.

@ Lets Party with Cossacks – MM do a good range, but the figures are quite bulky compared to Flashing Blade or even Pendraken. The Bend Sinister range are close to Flashing Blade (I think the earlier Bend Sinister were just renamed Flashing Blades figures). I have gamed with units from all of these on the table, looks fine, but not mixed in same unit. Never seen any OG, but I am thinking about getting their cavalry, as they do the early Peninsular War British cavalry.

I am considering OG 10mm to complement my Pendraken, mostly in order to give a bit of variety in poses. Can I ask whether OG can be mixed, a) on the same base, or b) on different bases with Pendraken 1809 range. Thanks

Jeffers05 Jan 2018 1:58 p.m. PST

I have a small collection of Austrians and found the best mix is OG infantry (because they are so easy to base and paint – so the company aim was achieved!) and a mix of Pendraken and Magister Militum for other arms. I wouldn't mix them in the same units as OG bases are noticeably thicker, but in the same army they are fine.

Quality and service is top notch from all companies, so you can't go wrong.
