How will they mix size-wise with Old Glory? Are they chunky like Perrys? Slight like Fife and Drum? I mainly need more Continental and militia command types to complete units that are mostly OG. I do like their poses and animation.

I don't have any Old Glorys and only have three sets of Brigade Games. My assessment is that they are slightly taller than Perry metals. The guns are slightly longer. The figures are slightly slimmer, probably closer in style to Fife & Drum.

Thanks, Bill. Perry are larger than OG, so BG may not mix well.

In my opinion, almost every modern range blends well together. I'm well pleased with Brigade Games AWI figures. I particularly like the MPC coat "militia/Continental" figures. They are very handy in depicting New England hastily recruited units. I mix them with Eureka Marbleheader figures.

Hmmmm, thta's a good idea about the Marbleheaders. My Glover's unit is full at 36 figures, but there are a few I'd be glad to trade out for better depictions.

I swear I heard the brigade AWI were purposely sculpted to match perry.

Btw, Brigade's mailing fees seem very high, compared with, e.g., the US distributor for perry, or FifeandDrum.

I agree with John on this, most of these figure lines are compatible. I look today and the BG figure while the same heft as OG was a little taller. BG a little more robust than F&D less so than Foundry Perry.

I'm a big fan of Old Glory, Perry, and Front Rank. My Napoleonic armies are a mix of all three (in separate units) and they play well together. OG tend to be a bit more "active" but they paint up really well. I've never had anyone make any negative comments, even at conventions.

I also have Brigade Games figures, although not Napoleonic. I've placed them next to each other for a comparison, and they fit just as well as the others. But, to each his own.
