Rafm vs Esci, American Civil War Infantry

The photo above compares three ACW figures from Rafm Miniatures (unpainted metal) with an equal number of troops from Esci (in light gray plastic). Click on the image for a larger version.

Manufacturers’ designations:

The Esci troops come from box 223 "American Civil War Confederate Infantry."

The Rafm figures are catalogued as RAF6603 “Union Infantry, Advancing.”

Height compatibility (measured from sole of foot to eyes):
Rafm – 24mm.
Esci – 23mm.

Body Build compatibility (from 5 categories):
Rafm – C (Average)
Esci – B (Slender)

Overall conclusions:
Although the Esci figures are a bit shorter and a bit more slender, these two ranges still work together. While the differences are obvious when mixed in a single unit, they disappear if the two types are formed in separate groups.
