I know of many producers of 28mm.
But which ones are close to perry in style.
S&S has great character and I'll use their artillery as it's lovely. But less sure about the infantry.
Are there any other in the style of perry (decently anatomically correct)

Old Glory 2nd Edition? Same sculptor as S&S but less chunky. Or Foundry, Perry sculpts after all!

Foundry. S&S artillery are nice, but I felt like the infantry were just a little off.

Foundry is the best match in regards to style as the range was sculpted by the Perry bros, but the two ranges have different dimensions, meaning Foundry are smaller to my eyes. It's a slight difference mind you.

I have a mix of both for the table, but don't mix within units. Honestly though, just go all Perry Minis.

definedtly Foundry range as it was sculpted by the Perry twins many years ago… I also found Crusader ACW to be pretty similar in size and style to Perry's however the range consists of only a few packs all in marching poses (8figs /pack of marching infantry or 4 commanda). I also found redoubt ACW huge range to be quite similar in style and matching up well with Foundry and Perry's ranges. S&S and Old Glory (mainly 2nd edition but also the original range is nice) are slender figures than Foundry/ACW and are no match in the same unit however they are cimpoatible in the same army. Old glory original version however has some packs consiting of figures that seem to have been sculpted by different sculptors as they have quite noticeable size and anatomical proportion differences among them…
All is however also a matter of personal taste , my comment reflect this of course.
Hope to have been of help!

Thanks people.
I've liked the style of redoubt. Some of the figures look very nice. Others not so much.

I'm not sure of S&S artillery. I haven' seen them in the flesh but in photos the wheels seem more Napoleonic to me, the wheels just look way to stout to me. Perry and the older OG wheels seem better to me, closer to how the wheels actually were. Also bear in mind that many Redoubt figures, and I have lots of them, are very chunky robust fellows. Let's just say that an infantry unit made of Redoubt is really well fed. Redoubt's artillery crews though are really nice, with great firing poses.
