Juts messing around with various things on and beneath my painting desk today, and I thought some of you might be interested in seeing how the various ranges of figures I am using for the Grand Duchy of Stollen Project compare to one another. So, take a look at the two photos above. From left to right you see the following: A 25mm RSM95 mounted infantry officer, a 30mm Spencer Smith mounted officer, a 25mm MiniFig “Frederick the Great”, and finally a plastic 1/72 Revell Austrian dragoon trooper.
Not a huge amount of difference in height between the four miniatures, although the latter two are a bit shorter in stature. It’s also interesting to see the difference in sculpting style and in proportions. Although I am a fan of MiniFigs (and in particular their 15mm Napoleonics of which I have 2000+), I think that their 25mm SYW range leaves a bit to be desired where correct human proportions are concerned.
Specifically, the three 25mm MiniFig mounted SYW generals in my collection are a little on the dumpy side with overly large calves, heads, and hands. The other three figures pictured above are much better in that department. In any case, I think all of the ranges will work well together, especially assembled into their various BIG units.
