I'm trying to decide if I want to buy the Old Glory 25mm Apaches. The photos on their site are awful. Too far away and bare metal.

Anyone out there have decent photos of these figs painted up?

I don't have any photos, but the OG Apaches are great. They are far better than the OG Plains Indians.

They came out about the same time as the Foundry Apaches, and mix well enough that I have to actually look at them to tell them apart. (as opposed to at-a-glance)

Old Glory UK no longer seems to have lots of photos of painted figures for some of the range! That used to be my go to solution to your problem, Pan Marek. They do have a gallery, but it currently contains photos of painted Plains Indians, but no Apaches.
Sorry about that.

I painted a bunch for my regular client. Decent figures, not great. Sorry though, no photos.

One thing that has always amazed me about OG is that, although they look strange, they paint up amazingly well! I can't speak to the Apaches, but I'd go for it based on my experience with multiple other OG lines. For a balance between cost and quality, OG is pretty good.

A friend had some Apaches; they painted up really well.

La Gloire Magazine #1, the OG magazine, had the Apaches featured. They looked good painted up. The issue is still available for $7 USD on the OG site.

Gisbygeo-

Yes, but I finally have an idea of what the sculpts look like! And although not as full of personality as the Foundry, they're pretty good.

Thank you very much.
Makes me wonder why OG doesn't post some painted ones on their site. I think it would help sell them.

I have Old Glory Apaches. They are very nice and they mix well with Foundry.
