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.
This blog is concerned with military miniatures that are about one inch high. To be specific, it deals with figures described as being in the following scales: 20mm, 22mm, "traditional" or "true" 25mm, HO, 1/72 or 1/76.
The focus of the blog is to help plastic wargamers select metal figures to complement their forces, and vice versa. To do this, it presents a series of images comparing various metal ranges to plastic ranges for similar subjects.
Rather than follow the blog day by day, most users will want to search for the ranges they are considering, by clicking on the labels below.
