Pendraken 10mm v. Kallistra 12mm

Anyone have comparison pics of these two lines next to each other?

The differences vary. Earlier Pendraken ranges tend to be a bit smaller than current ones and some of the Kallistra are larger than others.

Do you have particular ranges in mind ?

Those Kallistra I have seen are much larger than most Pendraken, almost as large as some early 'true' 15mm I have.

They are very nice figures though.

Mostly thinking about Napoleonics and WWI at this point.

WW1 here you go. I have some of the Great Escape Games figures as well. They are more similar in size to Kallistra.

@Pvt Snuffy:
Kallistra don't do Napoleonics. The following link has pictures of ACW figures Kallistra are nearly a head taller than Pendraken and they are bulkier.
I agree with the comment above that Kallistra are closer to some of the early "true 15mm" figures. I have 1970s Minifigs Sassanids and they don't look out of place against my Eastern European Kallistra medievals.

I have found that some Magister Militum ranges are similar in size to Pendraken (though a bit bigger and usually bulkier) while others are larger.

The earlier Pendraken WW1 sculpts are shorter than later ones but similarly slim.

Kallistra do at least describe their figures as 12mm, MM stick to calling them 10mm for a more varied offering.
