Am I right in thinking that Grigo 40s produce the best 28mm mamelukes. If not what might be the other contenders?

I have a beautifully painted unit of Connoisseur Mamelukes

Hi Grigo 40s are very nice but are very large 28mm. Foundry's the Casting room do some nice Mamelukes as well as Bicorne Miniatures do some very nice Mamelukes. Hope this helps

Thanks for the advice.
BUT where are the 28mm mamelukes from Eureka and brigade Games. I cannot find them!

Are the Gringo 40s larger than Front Rank Cavalry?

No way are any Gringos40 larger than any Front Rank figures. Not sure anyone compares with their BMI.

Much depends on the individual sculptor and Gringos40 figure range does vary in size. The new Marines for Hue I consider the best 28mm work I have ever seen, but they are big lads, as is their kit, weaponry etc.

The Mamelukes are slender, sharply detailed, well proportioned and I feel a perfect match for any Perry figures. A lack of variety of horse poses is an issue, but what you do get have superb ornamentation on their saddlery.

Brigade Games do the mamelukes that fought the French in Egypt and they are there…hiding as you said. Their rig would still be fine for early French service…Austerlitz say.
