I've seen Front Rank mini's in several comparison shots with Conquest, Perry, etc. Would they work well with AW minis in the same unit or in separate units?

Thanks in advance!

I'll let you know in a few days. I just ordered some AW. grin
But petty little differences usually don't bother me.

I got some Indians and CdB. These are such irregular units that differences don't matter.
It's not like Hessian Grenadiers who should match up pretty exactly.

It is my understanding that AW are large like Galloping Major, North Star, and Front Rank.

On the smaller end we have Perry, Brigade Games,Sash and Saber, and Warlord. My FIW are all from these manufacturers.

I wasn't aware that Perry made FIW figures. Where exactly is it on their site?

You can use their AWI Indians for the FIW.

So then technically they don't make FIW figures but you are using AWI Indians for FIW.

AW and Front Rank are large-ish. They should mix well. After all, they're irregular Indian warriors, probably dispersed on the table.

But what do I know? I just bought Indians from AW, Fife and Drum, Knuckleduster, Conquest/Warlord, etc.
I feel they mix well ON THE TABLE. If you hold samples of each in front of your nose, you may shriek in anguish and clutch your pearls. grin But in my games, figures fight on the table. Not in front of my nose.
