Here's some 28mm F&G figures I've readied for an up-coming game (a few Perry's maybe seen in the Rebel ranks).

The F&G minis are a good match in proportions and height to Perry's, so mix well.

The buildings (weathered a bit up over the stock models) are by History Works. I think for their price, these pre-painted models represent a great value.

Like the round bases and painting style. Nice work.

TY! I've been doing most of my 28s with the Army Painter line of tones and colored washes and it's so much quicker for me. At tabletop-level viewing, the tonal surface contrasting (and with a final bright-colored dry brushing) I think helps us old guys and with our old eyes see more figure "feedback" from off the game board.

Also glad you like the look of the round bases (they're certainly useful for game attrition mechanics that are oriented more towards "skirmish" systems). I couldn't see whacking off a beautiful stand of 4-6 nice figs, when one figure attrition accomplishes the same thing – and keeps the figure count lower for our game projects. Still, one can't deny the amazing display of hundreds of figs in games using big battalion formations (I'll just never entertain painting on that scale of production – even if using "easy" painting techniques).
