Both look really well sculpted, but what are their differences? Could get both but do they mix? I have assumed fighting 15 Krakus are 18mm as they sell a lot of ABs, but this could be wrong.

As someone who has both I can give you the following advice.

Both ranges are, as you say, well modelled. It would depend on what manufacturer makes the rest of your army as to which you should go for.

The Krakus figures available from Fighting 15s were previously produced by Oddzial Osmy. They are more of the 'true' 15mm scale and would fit with minifigs or Essex figures.

The Krakus from Sho Boki (seen above) are more in keeping with the size of figures made by Tony Barton (of AB figures). If the rest of your army is by AB then go for Sho Boki.

Thanks Redcurrant – had not appreciated the size difference.

The Sho Boki figures do look good.
