So, i am just about to reemerge myself into buying and paiting figures. Looking at building the trans-caspia campaign. Its a hard one and not many figures seem to be available for some of the more esoteric stuff. But Blue Moon and Peter Pig both offer attractive ranges. Does anyone have ANY experience wit a combination of PP and BM 15mm figues? How do they compare?
Thank you all

These two ranges represent the extremes on both ends for 15s. By reputation Blue Moon are very big, and in contrast, Peter Pig are quite small. You might find this useful: link

Did you ever do the pirates comparison? Love to see that

I WWII and Western PP. They are VERY sturdy and will not break or bend. However, they are small 15mm. Don't mix them with lines that approach 18mm.

Peter Pig has a much larger selection for the RCW. They would be my first choice in 15mm.

PP has reworked some of their figures, so I am not certain how up to date the comparisons are, but they are at opposite ends of the 15mm spectrum.

Both ranges are nice – but wouldnt mix them – but than thats my preference

PP heads range makes conversions considerably easier. That may allow you to make some otherwise difficult figures.

In particular there is one with British sun helmet that might be handy.

Can't say anything on Blue Moon but I have some from PP and they get the job done and any figures not cast can be made with their separate heads range, though their limited artillery guns and Armored vehicles range leave something to be desired.
