It looks like the difference between male and female sculpts may not be limited to adding breasts. The females look like they have narrower shoulders. Females of our species are, of course, smaller on average than males, but this doesn't translate well in miniatures, since one company's figures may be several millimeters taller than another company's.

Hips and faces are a bit different. They've done a great job of capturing their subject. It's subtle but noticeable.

I think they look very good. And in heavy baggy military clothing it can be difficult to tell who is who.

That's what I was getting at, Mike. I'd heard about the project of producing female toy soldiers, but hadn't expected much. The figures were nicer than I thought they'd be. They are well designed, and remind me of the crisply cast figures from my childhood, not at all like the mushy army figures you see at the grocery store toy aisle.

Who needs to shop at classier venues.
