Stunning, love the Don Cossack Horse Battery! Does anyone know how they look against Perry, Victrix, and Front Rank?

Commissar vs Perry

That image looks like there is less detail in the Perry figure. Odd, as I have always had crisp details on Perry figures.

Just a trick of the light I think. Looks like they would be a really good match. Almost wish I did Russians.

Interesting that a 4 horse limber w/o gun from Perry is cheaper than the similar offering from Commissar.

Despite being amongst the best on the market, Perrys are also some of the cheapest. Seems counter intuitive but it suits me.

It is to do with the figures chosen.

They are the same size and same anatomical proportions. Funny that the latter is not the same as the former. But we have all seen Front Rank incredible casting quality, on Hobbit legs and arms thicker than thighs.

Ney is not an ideal comparison. He is a one piece casting of a very plain subject. Most folk do not want to see Ney as a balding middle aged figure…as he admits he was by 1815. But that is how Perrys showed him. They were right.

Perrys often need a great deal of filing, but they are pretty good (very good). I admit I do wish they would start to expand their range of figure and horse poses though. The same chaps appear time after time and the horses even more so.

Thanks for your answers and interest. The following, I think, there will be Guards Cossacks and Bashkirs.

Commissar miniatures are surely top notch – very impressive quality – I wish they would have an Western European dealer.
