Very impressed by the range of Bicorne ECW infantry but will they mix well with my existing figures? Has anyone mixed them or have comparative pictures? Regards Alan

I have Bicorne and Foundry. Foundry are smaller while Bicorne are a very large figs. I think that The Assault Group and Bicorne go well together.

Thanks for the advice. I might look at the Assault Group as well. Regards Alan

Bicorne really don't fit with any other figs. I have Warlord, Perry, and OG and they are all smaller.

I just kept them in their own units; I didn't try to mix them with other figures.

You can combine them with Renegade. If you can find them.

There's a very good discussion link . Lots of pictures to help inform you

They combine with Redoubt as well.

Thank you all. Your advice has been extremely helpful. Some very extreme size variations in those photo comparisons! While i have a few Foundry and Perry figures I am tending towards a 1st Corp/Bicorne combination.

Foundry and Perry are definitely smaller than Bicorne. Bicorne are most compatible with Redoubt, Renegade and the new range from Bloody Miniatures. My own ECW army has cavalry figures ( in separate units) from Empress, Bicorne, Renegade, Perry and Warlord. Once deployed, they look fine.
Empress figures are probably the best in terms of anatomical proportions and detail, but usually require some assembly, which can be fiddly (face bars on helmets!). Bicorne are easy to paint and do not require any assembly.

I bought some ECW Bicorne figs, found them to be more like 30mm, reminded me of Front Rank. You have a choice of heads with "hard or soft hats", but if you want Scottish troops, you need to scroll around until you find extra Scots heads with bonnets. I can use them as a separate commanded shot, yes, but they can't really mix in with my Warlord or Perry figs. Perry figs are a tadge smaller than Warlord, but I've successfully mixed them in, especially with my Warlord metal Irish brigade, as extra pikes, and they have lovely heavy over-the-shoulder plaids which increases their bulk and makes them look bigger. Hope this helps.
