I just stumbled across Firelock Game's Blood & Plunder line of figures. They look very nice and could be good for some games on En Garde' but I'd like to know how they compare in size to other manufacturers. I currently have quite a few of Warlord Games ECW figures so I would be particularly keen to find out how Firelock's and Warlord's figures would look side by side. Can anybody help me out on this one?

B&P figures are big. Not beefy, but tall. Warlord would be short in comparison, but the B&P are mounted on molded on bases which make them "closer to the table" than a figure on, say, a MDF base.
Putting a more average 28mm fig on a thick base solves the problem to a large extent.

I think you'll have some trouble finding figs as tall as B&P. Maybe Redoubt, they tend to run bigger.

I don't know for certain but the Black Scorpion range might be tall enough.

FLG's minis are tall and slender, and fairly hard to match up.

Warlord's a good bit smaller. North Star's "1672" line (formerly Copplestone's "Glory of the Sun") are a good match (and closer period-wise).

Bicorne's ECW minis re pretty darned big, and may be the best fit. I sold mine off a good while back, hoping to dig out my ECW desires to the root…but it grew back anyway. grin

Oops, I forgot how long I had had this window open…


North Star, (plastic) Warlord, Firelock, North Star.

Try and work around the bases…

Thanks, that's exactly what I was trying to learn.
