Hello All,

In your opinion, in 28/30 mm figures that offers the most beautiful and extensive range for the WOTR?

Thank you.

In plastic ?

Glengarry510 Nov 2019 4:00 a.m. PST

Perry's does both plastics and metal.

Paskal Supporting Member of TMP10 Nov 2019 4:44 a.m. PST

For the WOTR ?And those of Old Glory?

Y'is nothing other?

There is much we are still unsure about when it comes to the Wars of the Roses, but there is one thing that is unequivocal, and all the primary sources agree:

Front Rank are better than Perry.

Paskal Supporting Member of TMP10 Nov 2019 6:30 a.m. PST

And with Old Glory where is the problem?

Kevin C Supporting Member of TMP10 Nov 2019 6:32 a.m. PST

I recently purchased a lot of Old Glory WOTR range miniatures and they are excellent sculpts. The cavalry figures may be a little smaller than other manufacturers, but not by much. In fact, they are about the same size as Foundry's WOTR cavalry figures. As for their infantry figures, they are as good as anyone's and (once you take into account their 40% discount for Old Glory members) are certainly the best figures on the market for the price. Also, since they are metal, you don't have to mess with all of hassle of having to put the miniatures together.

The Perry plastics are really nice. I have assembled and painted up about 400 of them.

I mix Perry and OG infantry, though not in the same unit. I just got a Perry "host", so the ratio favors Perry. OG is good for some variation.

Thresher01 Supporting Member of TMP10 Nov 2019 8:12 a.m. PST

FR better than Perry???

I'm not so sure about that, from pics I've seen.

Bindon Blood10 Nov 2019 9:21 a.m. PST

I'd say that FR are way better than Perry's.

IMHO, Perry's plastics are overrated…

Paskal Supporting Member of TMP10 Nov 2019 9:49 a.m. PST

And who offers the most variations of figures for men-at-arms?

Glengarry510 Nov 2019 11:48 a.m. PST

Old Glory/Revenge sculpts are chunky, old and frankly primitive compared to more modern Perry's. OG also have no idea what a bill looks like.

Paskal Supporting Member of TMP10 Nov 2019 11:22 p.m. PST

Yes they are not perfect but it's still those that I often prefer.

DeRuyter12 Nov 2019 12:52 p.m. PST

OG – cheaper

Perry plastic much better sculpt and better scaled. But it is what you prefer – more chunky/stocky go FR.

Paskal Supporting Member of TMP12 Nov 2019 11:54 p.m. PST

"more chunky / stocky go FR". What does that mean ?

whiterose13 Nov 2019 2:50 a.m. PST

All the ranges are good, just a question of which one you like the look of most!

Paskal Supporting Member of TMP13 Nov 2019 9:51 a.m. PST

Chunky / Stocky = stocky / rablé, I understood thank you, but go FR "? What does it mean?

PS: ??? Old Glory figures are not chunky/stocky…

Henry Martini13 Nov 2019 1:55 p.m. PST

FR= Front Rank, so 'go FR' would mean opt for, select, settle on, or choose… Front Rank.

Paskal Supporting Member of TMP14 Nov 2019 6:24 a.m. PST

Ah ok thank you Henry Martini.

Je vous en prie, monsieur.

I would have to see Old Glory figures for the WOTR.

wmyers16 Nov 2019 10:40 p.m. PST

Why not write and ask if they can send you a sample?

Bravo and Thank you,, Like this, it is clear.

dapeters20 Nov 2019 9:51 a.m. PST

Front rank tend to be big and well feed, Crusaders are not as heavy but tall (although they are great for pikes . Foundry look like boys.

Charlie20 Nov 2019 1:56 p.m. PST

Are Old Glory similar in size to Foundry?

Hard to quite work it out from the above scale comparison pic, useful as it is.

I know that Foundry are noticeably shorter than Perry. Is it the same with Old Glory, or would they scale with Perry better?

Paskal Supporting Member of TMP20 Nov 2019 11:07 p.m. PST

I really only like the Old Glory.

Paskal Supporting Member of TMP21 Nov 2019 5:07 a.m. PST

@ Glengarry5:

There were many similar weapons that the English called "bills" not merely one weapon!

dapeters21 Nov 2019 8:34 a.m. PST

Many folks do not like Old Glory but I've bought tons they work best with Mirliton which are the old Grenadier line. Foundry figs look like boys next to OG. I agree the picture was an interesting selection from those lines. It seems that the more full plate the figure wears the taller the sculpter made the figure in comparison to the rest of the line

Paskal Supporting Member of TMP21 Nov 2019 9:33 a.m. PST

I love Old Glory in priority, but there are no other manufactures with a WOTR range ?

Charlie21 Nov 2019 10:39 a.m. PST

What I'm particularly interested in are the Flemish pikemen by Old Glory posted above, to mix in with Perry metal pikemen. They will add some more variety in poses and equipment, most notably they are all wearing padded jacks. But it will look a bit odd if all the ones in jacks are noticeably shorter than their unarmoured friends?

The pic above and the blog page it links to are the ONLY PICS OF THEM I CAN FIND! There was another guy had some posted on various boards, but his pics cannot be seen now due to photobucket reasons. How crazy is it these are the ONLY usable photos I have been able to find of these figures???

Paskal Supporting Member of TMP21 Nov 2019 11:38 p.m. PST

Yes finding valid pictures of the beautiful Old Glory figurines is not a sinecure!

dapeters22 Nov 2019 10:33 a.m. PST

There are I think other manufactures who make 15th century stuff, just not called WORs

Paskal Supporting Member of TMP23 Nov 2019 11:28 a.m. PST

We will need more pictures of the Old Glory WOTR figures range on this topic.
