I received my large order of all the War of 1812 figures from North Star yesterday. They are nice variety of unique sculpts and will be a welcome addition to my War of 1812 collection. My main criticism is that the officers do not have an epaulette. Nonetheless, they are recommended and Kudos to North Star for producing them.

Very nice. Thanks for sharing this.

One question I do have, how do they look compared to other figures in your collection? Are they on the bigger side of 28mm?

I do like the look of the sculpts of the militia. However, I have a fair amount of Knuckleduster and Old Glory figures.

Also Wargames Foundry makes 1812 U.S. & British. If you did not know.

I have a very few Foundry figures. I might get more.

The 1812 Project has taken on more of a size than I had originally intended.

Hi Eric, yes the North Star figures are a bit larger than the Knuckleduster figures. I have just primed four N.S. American militia in frontier fringed frock coats and they will fit in with my KD Tennessee regiments. The NS are 28mm bottom of the foot to the eye and KDs are about 27mm but girth of the NS figures are thicker than the KDs. It is similar to a Front Rank versus Perry comparison of British Infantry.

The Foundry War 1812 figures are smaller than the KDs. I have stand alone units of Foundry but they don't mix well with other ranges, nice figures though. For what it is worth I believe I have every manufacturer of 28mm War of 1812 figures in my collection, so if you need other comparisons etc. don't hesitate to ask.
