I am thinking of adding some of the Plastic Soldier Company 15mm figures to my force. I am especially interested in their German early war heavy weapons set. Other German and Russian sets do interest me as well. Most of my troops are currently FOW. How well does PSC match up?

I don't have those in particular but the FOW Churchill Crocodiles matched up nicely with my PSC shermans and Panthers.

Thanks Dynaman, I find their vehicles match very well, but was interested in their infantry, sorry for not making that clear.

I wouldn't worry about size compatibility too much with 15's because any differences would be noticeable only to the most eagle-eyed among us.

PSC's soviets are more realistically proportioned. I.e. they are skinny, and dont match well with FOW. Their other ranges are a pretty good match for FOW IMHO.

Troops wise I only have the older FOW troops (and not many) but the PSC matched up nicely. A bit thinner but nearly the same height.

The Soviets were PSCs first range, and some are both a bit awkward posed and they are thinner, more realistic. The other ranges mix well with FOW plastics even when upon the same base.

Many thanks all, just what I needed. Thank you.

Just one thing to be wary of – some PSC figure sets suffer from "big head" syndrome, with the Russian sets being among the worst offenders. They are otherwise well proportioned. IMO they don't look too bad together but when mixed with other sculpts the XOS noggins do rather stand out…
