Nostalgic Revival vs RedBox, 18th Century India, Foot

The photo above compares three metal sepoy figures from Cunningham (now 20mm Nostalgic Revival) to three Afghan fighters (in brown plastic) from RedBox. Click on the images for a larger version.
Manufacturers’ designations:

The RedBox figures are from box RB72004 “Afghan Warriors.”

The Nostalgic Revival figures are from the “Wellington in India” range. From left to right they are: SW2 Madras sepoy advancing, SW4 Bombay grenadier loading, SW3 Bombay grenadier priming.

Height compatibility (measured from sole of foot to eyes):
RedBox – 20mm.
Nostalgic Revival – 22mm.

Body Build compatibility (from 5 categories):
RedBox – C (average)
Nostalgic Revival – C (average)

Overall conclusions:
The Cunningham sepoys are noticeably taller than the RedBox Afghans. The sculpting styles are also a bit different (with the Cunningham sculpts being a bit more slender, and more realistic in terms of animation). However, with some attention paid to modifying the base height, it should be possible to use them on the same table.
