How do these ranges compare to each other?

They don't play wel together.

PM your email and I send you some side by side shots.

I did my last post on my phone so here is more detail.

The 1898 figures are first rate and if I was just starting out they would be the only figures I would buy. However, almost all my SAW figures are Old Glory with a two Tiger Spanish units (Civil Guard).

I purchased (or should I say rented) some 1898 figures last year. I have the pictures before me. The 1898 figures are somewhat shorter and quite a bit slimmer than Old Glory. To use a fantasy comparison; the 1898 are elves, Old Glory are men, and Tiger are ogres.

Once again PM me and I will gladly sent you my side by side shots.

I agree with VCarter as to the quality of the 1898 figures . However it is very incomplete range at this point and quite pricey . The Old Glory figure are very good sculpture and with a complete line . Each pack of 30 come with multiple poses and are available at a very reasonable price especially if you get the Army Deal . That being said" to each his own " !

Let me retract some of my above statement As to line not being complete, I am some what incorrect. I was thinking of the Gringo 28mm range . The 1898 range is much more complete then I had stated . They have a few minor holes to fill but otherwise fairly complete . The price is more then the Old Glory range of figs ,but they are a better sculpted figure . When one is wrong ,one should own up to it . Note I may be a bit of a homer as I own 400 or so OG figs . Either range would do you well !

I collect the 1898 figures.I like them as there are not any duplicates in their packs and are nicely sculpted.They have a ways to go but they just started the company a little over a year ago.I wish they did compare sizewise with OG as it would have been nice to combine the ranges.

I must admit had the two companies had these out at the same time and where complete I would have gone with 1898 figures . I may still acquire some for a diorama . Enjoy

Would Old Glory Buffalo Soldiers and 1898 Filipinos work together?
