How well to the 25mm figures from Old Glory mix with 28mm from Assault Group or Warlord? Looking to expand my Ottoman collection with some of their stuff

I've done the math, to see just how tall a 28mm figure is, if a 1/72 scale, 25mm figure, is a 6-foot man: six feet = 72 inches, so 1/72 scale is not a 20mm figure, unless you want your Human Males to be all of 4 feet 9-1/2 inches tall! A 5-foot man would be 20.8 mm, or roughly 21 mm tall. So 1 mm does have an effect, being 2.4 inches in scale. I prefer 6-foot men, not 5-foot, or 4-foot 9-1/2 inches.

If 25mm = 6 feet, then 28 mm = 6 feet 8-1/2 inches, in 1/72 scale. That assumes the 28 mm figure is actually 28 mm tall! It further assumes the 25 mm figure is actually 25 mm tall…

A 32 mm tall figure would equate to a 7 foot 8-1/2 inch tall person! Vaguely related, a 54 mm tall figure would translate into a 13-foot tall person, and a 60 mm tall figure would translate into a 14 foot 5 inch tall person.

Buy some sample figures, or find a photo with a millimeter scale showing the actual heights of the mini's, to see just how tall they really are. Base your decision upon that.

More information than you wanted/needed, but there you go. Cheers!

I have used a mix of both OG and TAG in my collection, they work fine together, I particularly like mounting the OG figures on TAG horses instead of the OG ones: link

They mix quite well then! Big fan of your blog as well, Malatesta. One of my go-to's.

I agree with the two previous gentlemen.

I am glad you have enjoyed it – quite a lot of stuff up on there recently about building an Ottoman army so I hope it helps.
