These are really nice looking figures.

Very Nice….must resist new period….

Very nice! Sorely tempted to get into this. Will there be artillery, Gatling guns, etc. coming in the future?

if someone has picked the 1898 figures up, how do they compare size wise to Old Glory and Tiger miniatures?

Thank you for your comments!

ScottWashburn, we are already working on the artillery, we already have 3D designs for the guns and our sculptor is working on the crews.

VCarter, there is a Scale comparison at our website comparing the size of our miniatures not with Tiger or Old Glory but with popular ranges such as Front Rank, Perry Miniatures or Empress. I hope you can find it useful.

Nice paint jobs. I couldn't do these figures justice.

I just received my Americans Saturday and I have the whole range and couldn't be happier with them.

Thanks, I saw the scale comparisons with the last release.

I still would like to see OG/Tiger compared.

Your figures talked about on another thread:

Thanks @VCarter, thread replied. Sadly don't have any Tiger's nor Old Glory's to shot them all together, sorry!

I'm kinda hoping someone over here will step up with the comparison since I don't have any of the one you show.

I had some Old Glory and they weren't too bad size wise but the sculpting wasn't up to these.I have some Old Gringos 40s and they match up also,maybe a tad bigger.

First off thanks.

I do more than agree that the 1898 figures are of far greater quality that the OG models.

I had not realized Old Gringo 40's made Spanish American War figures. I just took a look at the website – nice figures, however, they do look a little tall and thin.

So, what distinguishes the Rough Riders from other Federal troops are the color of their trousers?

Hello Jorge, yes, you can use the same figure for Rough Riders and federal dismounted cavalry (except Buffalo soldiers of course, who will be soon available) armed with the Krag-Jörgensen carbines.

For infantry, the available Federal Infantry are armed with the Krag-Jörgensen rifle and bayonets, while the State Troops (also soon available) with the old Sprinfields.
