PeterPig miniatures are on the small size of 15mm. How well do their separate heads work for swaps on larger figures?

Peter Pig are proper 15mm and not 15/18mm.

I've done several on Old Glory 15's, and Essex Miniatures, dependent upon pose etc, but they certainly didn't work on 18mm such as Blue Moon etc.

It really depends on the period and the manufacturer involved. Given the price of a pack of heads it is almost always worth trying them out.

In general Peter Pig's heads match with their figures, however as figures have been remodelled the remodelling of heads tends to lag behind so heads look too small on newer figures, for example the original Wild West Mexican sombreros do not look right if you are trying to create a unit of Spanish Civil War militia.

However newly modelled heads for PP's chunkier modern figures for WW2, Moderns and Vietnam are larger and fit well on Battlefront, Flashpoint and MJ Miniatures.

i tried some headswops on my ecw , imho the heads were too small on my essex figures but OK on the minifigs offerings .

The heads have definitely increased in size over the years. I have a pack of old Aussie slouch hat heads which are tiny, and a pack of the the same head newly re-sculpted. The new heads fit Battlefront figures perfectly.
