Specifically the marching figures. Can anyone comment on how these could mix?

From the pics I have seen the OG set Confed Inf Marching Shouldered Arms look pretty similar to the Perry plastic marching inf from their first box set.

They were all sculpted specifically to match in size.

Back when I was doing 28mm ACW, I mixed them on the table without reservation.

I was thinking more of in the same unit rather than the same table. The style looks similar so Russ' comment has me pondering an order.

Years ago the club I was in did a Civil War project. Two of us painted and based Confederates. I had OG 2nd Editions, two boxed sets each of right shoulder arms and right shoulder shift and my friend had Perry plastics. I would say they match almost perfectly because over time they got mixed and the only way to tell which was which was to pick up the stand to feel the heft or to look closely, well within gaming distance, at the painting style.
