In the interests of balance. It's fine to point out the flawed figures, but which do you think is top of league, and why?
I don't have huge numbers of Perry, but of those I do have I would nominate the Gardes d'Honneur at rest. So easy to paint they almost painted themselves

There are too many. 🙂. Here are a few that were cool

FN66 to FN68 – Cuirassiers on standing horses in reserve. The poses of bored guys waiting around for orders is really fun.

I like the sets of infantry being hit as they march along. It gives a bit of movement to the stands.

I really enjoyed painting the artillery, pretty much all periods. I painted in early 2021 50, combined, Napoleonic French, Bavarian and Austrian sets/batteries. I really liked the French horse artillery.

I don't own any, but I have always thought that the 40mm Peninsular Range looks lovely link

there are too many and what I like utmost is the grandious concept of their ranges, Bavarian army, look at all those nice limbers, waggons, cannons and howitzer, where do you find a loading pose where the gunner is inserting the grenade into the howitzer chamber? Also they are top notch in their research, the Prussians of 1806 and the Saxons show the correct loading procedures for the self priming pan and cylindrical ramrod (and not as ever so often in other ranges the French or Britis doing so), what other producer has the guts to produce Saxons in Kittel for 1806 ????? Also no ear banging gunners as so en vogue for other producers.
In short they set the overall standard and are state of the art how do design, concept and research ranges.

If it has to be branded "Perry" then either of the officers:
