Can anyone comment on whether ghq and old glory 10mm are compatible?

They are both very nice figures, but they are at two opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of their proportions. GHQ are probably the shortest and thinnest of the ACW figures out there, the OG figures are a little taller and much chunkier (more so the five-man strips than the individual skirmishers).

Here's a comparison pic:

OG are mounted on five man strips. The figures themselves aren't that much bigger, but the strips are quite thick.

Thanks to all.

The closest matches to GHQ 10mm I have found are Crackerline Miniatures and The Baggage Trains 10 High range. Although not close enough for the same unit, they look just fine together on the field of battle.

Looks like Nick has decided to part with his GHQ collection.

GHQ – nicely cast and a pleasure to paint. Unfortunately the metal is very soft so the muskets bend with even careful handling. Figures break at the ankle. Good luck getting the cavalry to arrive with 50% of the swords in tact. Don't expect the rest to last long with normal wargaming use.

Old Glory. I prefer individual figures to strips.

Pendraken, Crackerline and 10 High are all better options to both.

Coopman, yes I was asking about the comparison to advise a fellow who has OG figures and had shown interest in my GHQ. I am going through a solo gamer slump, where I am realizing that many games are played just as easily with cheap proxies.
