I am checking these out, perhaps to round out some areas of the war of 1812 that I am not finding elsewhere.

They are very expensive, however, and I don't want to spend money needlessly.

How are these in size compared to say AIP? HAT?

Has anyone actually bought and painted them up?

Are there alternative War of 1812 marines, round hat figures, etc, from others?

Thanks!

Hi Snuffy,

I haven't seen the EF figures in hand, but what I've heard is that they run big, closer to 60mm, with the bulk to match – possibly a parallel of some of the scale creep we've seen in 28mm over the past few decades. So my guess is they might be a good deal bigger than AIP or HAT.

Maybe someone will come and contradict me, but until then I'd be careful if uniform size of figures is important to you.

I saw the EF figures this past weekend at the MFCA show.

I don't recall the 1812 figures (Hobby Bunker had them), but I almost bought some of the WW2 Germans.

They looked a hair bigger than the AIP figures I had in my bag, but they did look very nice.

I think if you are putting them in separate units, you'll be fine. Or individually mounted for games.

YMMV.

Expeditionary Force Figures are excellent quality. Keep in mind they make two sizes.

60mm and 54mm, They do tend to run big, but their WW2 and classical figures are listed as 60mm. The 1812 line is 54mm. The detail and quality of the figures is far superior to other "toy Soldiers" that I have worked with. They are more akin to the much pricier metal models than typical 1/32 plastics.


They paint up very nicely. These are 60mm Greeks, I don't have any of their 54mm figures.

wow, really nice, Dervel!

Thanks, I'll be keeping them in mind as this project develops.
