With Plastic Soldier Company (PSC) releasing their plastic copies of Corvus Belli EIR and Celts, would Old Glory's Blue Moon EIR and Celts match?

The sculpting looks extremely well done on their site's pictures. I have some metal Corvus Belli EIR and would like figures to fit in.

So why not the plastic copies?

The cost of $45 USD for 78 foot and 21 cavalry (Celts) plastic compared to $11.70 USD for 30 metal Blue Moon foot and $13.50 USD for 15 mounted figures (with OG Army 40% off).

So, $48.60 USD for 90 foot and 15 cavalry in metal.

Blue Moon stuff is 18mm, the metal Corvus Belli figures were proper 15mm.

Most people would say that doesn't mix.

The Old Glory (non Blue Moon) Gauls mind you are 15mm, so would be a great match for Corvus Belli, and you could mix in Essex too for even more variety. The actual OG ones would also be even less expensive I believe

Sometimes the thickness of the cast figure bases has more visual impact than the actual size of the figures. Thicker bases with the same size figures and one stands out a bit.

Something to consider when using many figures (and disguise opportunities)
