Trying to find someone who has or at least has seen these two together in 15s. I can't tell from the products photos if the two are scale compatible. Anyone seen the two together?

I have a few of them on the same bases. Freikorps are a little smaller but on the tabletop, I can't see any discernible difference. I would suggest you buy a sample of each and compare them for yourself. I can only speak to their ACW and FPW ranges.

I have both Freikorps and Old Glory 15s in my FPW army among several other manufacturers. The Freikorps are quite smaller than the OGs. I have not mixed mfgs on the same bases. Making units out of one mfg will work fine visually on the game table.

My SYW armies are about half-and-half Old Glory and Freikorps, but I don't mix them in the same unit (and usually not in the same nationality).

In this photo, the unit facing slightly towards the camera are Old Glory, and the unit facing slightly away are Freikorps. It's not really a very good side-by-side comparison shot, but it does show how negligible the differences are once the units are on the table.

Thank you all for your comments, I generally follow the system used by War Artisan. So I will finish my Austrians and make any further additions to the Prussians with Freikorps. I want to try the Old Glory but one other small hiccup is that they do not have quite the range as I will need Hanoverian and Hessians as well as some French, mostly cavalry for the French. The French I have currently are Minifig which are slightly smaller than the Friekorps and the Freikorps are slightly smaller than the Old Glory. Arghh, the agony of scale creep, (not referring to you there Mark).
It seems that Minifig was recently acquired by a UK firm and I'm not certain if they are still available through a USA distributor.

My 15mm armies are a mix of Frie, Mini, and OG each in their own unit, Infantry is no problem, cavalry doesn't mix.
