Hi all. Title says it all really, are Foundry's figs compatability with 1:72 plastics or the (usually) smaller-sized ranges by other manufacturers in metal?

As far as I am aware, Foundry's figures are all 28mm. This puts them at about 1/56 scale and will seem massive next to 20mm stuff.

Cerdic, Foundry does have a very nice range of 20mm WWII figures.

My mistake, just had a look at their website and found it hidden away!

I'd put them closer to 1/72. They are, of course, heftier, than most plastic ranges. I can take some comparison shots when I get home tonight.

I have a full squad of the Foundry 20mm (USA in winter gear). Really nice figures (sculpted by the Perrys I think). Fit well with my AB, Fantassin and even the plastics.

I would also place them closer to 1/72nd. Their tank commanders are very good IMO.

Thanks everyone for the replies. Here is the link that I should have put in the OP!

Yes they were sculpted by the Perry twins.
