does anyone have any side by side shots with ESR and Pendraken miniatures

I believe the ESR figures are Magister Militum specially packaged for the ruleset if that helps you.

I believe the ESR figures are Magister Militum

They are, and Michael Scott has a side-by-side shot of Magister Militum and Pendraken figures on his 1809 blog:


Side-by-side comparison shots, while somewhat useful, really don't tell the whole story since they don't always help you predict how the figures are going to look on the table. Size differences in 10mm are often less noticeable in practice since a) the figures are small and b) there are usually hundreds, if not thousands of them on the table. Our games use a wild mix of Magister Militum, Pendraken, Old Glory and AiM figures (sometimes in the same unit) and it takes some careful study of a zoomed-in photograph to pick out the size and style differences of the various manufacturers. On the game table, they're all just little soldiers.
