The first of three posts taking a deep drive into ECW 15mm ranges; looking at what ranges are available, if they are accurate in their clothing representation (or perpetuate the Victorian imagery. Size comparison is for the next two posts

This will make interesting reading, thanks.

I've always been partial to the Peter Pig range myself (although I prefer the "separate horse and rider" figures to the newer one piece castings)

Hope it doesn't disappoint David. I am very much of the same frame of mind with the PP range

Some of the Blue Moon range has started doing separate heads on single cast horse but not in ECW.

That's interesting takeda.

I really do like the randomness of "different people gathered together doing the same thing, wearing more or less the same clothes" that ECW (and a few other periods) gives us. Line after line of identical soldiers, to me at least, is a 7YW, Napoleonic etc thing.

Head swapping and paint variations allow this at 15mm. So anything that speeds the process up is to be applauded. I know that that is not for everyone. Some grumble about gluing separate pikes on, so I expect that they will baulk at the idea of gluing fiddly little heads on.

Matchlock Miniatures are nice

Very nice overview. I have some of most of these lines. Being on the colonial side of the pond I am finding it easier to get the OG 15s easier than the British or European lines. I find the Blue Moon infantry to be so large as to almost be 20mm. Looking forward to more of your expertise!

Thanks S'nasty. Looking at all my little bags of figures (all labelled, I'd never keep track otherwise) the concept of 15mm is a very very broad idea.

Don't forget to look at Gladiator (Fighting 15s owns them now) and Freikorp.

Both already covered in the post Extra Crispy
