I'm assuming that the lovely Old glory 15s 2-piece cavalry are the same size as my other OG 15s cavalry: they use the same horses, which are perhaps a BIT on the small side.

What I'd never seen before [never having checked out their ACW figs] is the even lovely-er single piece cavalry! They look a bit bigger, but there is no comparison with a ruler or anything else.

Anyone seen comparison shots of these fellows in the flesh?
Thanks!

Can you list a stock number? I've only seen 2 piece Cavalry from OG15s

ACW 41 and ACW 42.

Better yet, here they are:

More than 20 years ago I painted hundreds of those one piece castings for my brother, he doesn't even wargame, he just liked them. He still has them to this very day. Lovely sculpts, and very easy to paint.

Those are nice.

Those are the very first ACW cav OG ever released-- sculpted by the great, late Daved Alsop.

I had forgotten about these.
Fond memories indeed.

Are they bigger than the 2-piece OG15s Cavalry?

I have them too. Great items. I don't much like the glue-and-filler dance of rider-horse completion, and so I found the OG one-piece cavalry less frustrating and a real actual time saver. Bought my first ones second-hand from the trunk of a dude's car in Harrisburg many years ago.

I think they will fit in size wise, but it has been years since I actually saw, or held them in hand.
I do know they are substantially thinner due to the molding process.
