very nice sculpting – as you know I don't like the difference in height too much between grenadiers and musketeers, the fusiliers look almost like children compared to the grenadiers.
I will wait to order till the command the Suvarov are out.

I am afraid that they do look like 15s compared to 18s. Were Russian grenadiers really that large compared to the line infantry?

They were planned as 16mm and 17mm but after casting they really are 17mm and 18mm.
Fusilier is like AB earlier figures and Grenadier like later figures.

Thank you. I am sure the enlargement photo makes the 1mm difference look so pronounced.

Looks good. I will wait for the command and musketeers before collecting the Suvarov figure…and possibly jagers????
|Sho Boki ||25 Mar 2021 6:53 a.m. PST|
Jägers will be the last ones, I do it anyway. These will be not marching but skirmishing set.
But here are my chaps together with AB figures (painted ones).
Height difference between Grenadiers and Fusiliers is a little more than pure 1mm.
Every figure have different face and therefore different eye level also.
