SHQ & Kennington vs HaT, Napoleonic French Foot, Part 2

The photo above compares three HaT French chasseurs (in blue plastic) with a similar number of French gunners from SHQ (unpainted metal). Click on the image for a larger version.

Manufacturers’ designations:

The HaT figures come from box 8170: “French Guard Chasseurs.”

The SHQ figures come from their Napoleonic range, and are designated “ART 2 Napoleonic French Guard Horse Artillery Crew.” The range is also available from Kennington.

Height compatibility (measured from sole of foot to eyes):
HaT – 22mm
SHQ / Kennington – 22mm

Overall conclusions:
Although there is still a very slight difference in height and build between the two sets, it is almost unnoticeable when the figures are deployed side by side, and disappears altogether when they are used in separate units. Again, the SHQ figures are a suitable complement to those from HaT.

Note: The HaT figures were kindly supplied by the manufacturer.
