Hi all. My son has a box of these and I am looking for compatible metal command figures to enhance the Victrix plastic box set.

Has anybody gone down this route already, and so have any advice as to which metals will fit the best – I am looking for command figures, and especially a mounted colonel or two.

Many thanks

I used Perry figures. They fitted in well by size and pose.

The foot command in the set is brilliant anyway, with lots of options, but if you need mounted figures then yes agreed that Perry would be a good option.

Hmmm. I cannot see a mounted colonel for the guard in the perry range

There is no exact figure but you can use the mounted colonel in a bicorne and surtout from set FN 4. This is appropriate dress as the Victrix figures are all in campaign dress. Otherwise you can get mounted officers from elsewhere (Avanpost is highly recommended) and either choose bicornes or do a headswop with an appropriate bearskin-wearing head.
