I could not find the answer online: How do Steel Fist mounted knights compare size-wise to Eureka? I was thinking about adding Eureka Archers to my Steel Fist Gendarmes…
Thanks and cheers,
Peter

I have both lines. Steel Fist are considerably larger, especially the horses.

It might work as the "Archers" were mounted on lighter smaller horses

Thanks, guys. I think it depends on how they look side by side.

@Condottiere: any chance to see one of each on a pic?

Hi Spoercken, Eureka horses are much thinner than Steel Fist. Eureka figures are smaller. You cannot mix them in the same unit, as would be disproportionate.

I am trying to fit Eureka archers and gendarmes to Perry Renaissance horses. I need to widen the space between their legs and, at the same time, to adjust (trim) the saddle of Perry horses. In theory it works, but I didn't complete it yet. If the experiment is successful, I should be able to mix eurekas with others

Thanks, Everplayer. I think I will wait for Steel Fist to release their light cavalry (which should happen this year) and try some of their Gendarmes, maybe those with "cheaper" armour, on these horses. As far as I have seen on paintings, most Archers had horses without armour and barding.

Wow. Big difference in size.

Thanks, Condottiere! Really a huge difference.

Wonderfull miniatures both, but not usable side by side.
