RedBox v Ral Partha, British Colonial

RedBox is a new manufacturer which is offering a growing range of sets with an Asian flavour. This includes several sets from the late Victorian era: besides their two boxes for colonial India, they have an extensive range of Boxer rebellion forces in release. At this stage, though, RedBox is not offering sculpts with the same quality as their competitors. Instead they look like some of the earliest Airfix sets, and come with more flash than Airfix ever did.

This picture compares several RedBox figures with the Ral Partha bugler. It is clear that the RPH trooper is much larger than the plastic soldiers.
