Metal on Metal at Warflag

Warflag is a very useful website for wargamers. The main offering is a set of printable flags suitable for all scales and a variety of conflicts. The main site is here:

The site also is home to several subsites based around specific wargaming interests. On one of those can be found a very helpful image, which provides a comparison of metal "25mm" figures for the colonial era. This image is found here:

The ranges included in the picture fall into three groups.

The largest figures are:
  • Cannon Fodder
  • Essex
  • Castaway
  • Honorable Lead Boiler Suit Company
  • Redoubt

Medium sized figures include:

  • Old Glory
  • Wargames Foundry
  • Irregular
  • Falcon UK
  • Dixon (their height is closer to the third group, but the sculpting fits better here)

Among the smaller figures are:

  • Matchlock
  • Minifigs
  • Ral Partha
  • Frontier
  • Reviresco

It is this final group which are in scope for this blog - they are the ones that seem most likely to supplement plastic armies. But for anyone with questions about the others, this is a good starting point.
