HaT vs B&B, Franco-Prussian French Infantry

The HaT figures (in grey above) come from HaT's set 8004 - ACW Union Zouaves. Although clearly envisioned as an American Civil War set originally, HaT tweaked this set so that it included several packs as separate items. This made it even more useful as a way to depict French Zouaves or Tirailleurs.

The metal B&B figures interspersed with them are again from set FPFI-14 (French Marines Advancing).

In this case, the two types of figures match very closely on height, but almost look like two different species otherwise. The HaT poses are remarkable slender - they look slight beside other plastic figures as well.
