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
- Honorable Lead Boiler Suit Company
Medium sized figures include:
- Old Glory
- Wargames Foundry
- Falcon UK
- Dixon (their height is closer to the third group, but the sculpting fits better here)
Among the smaller figures are:
- Ral Partha
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.
