Has anyone experience of the above figures ?  Would they work visually with WW1 British in helmets (BP2) in terms of style and size?

I was thinking of them over SC1 Egyptians but happy to take advice  Smiley

I have these figures

Have a look in my painting diary for some photos.

Iíll see if I have chance later to photo them next to some British figures - but my instinct is they will work fine together.

Some photos







Overall Iíd say these match well size wise.

There are some close up photos of the figures in this thread  http://www.pendrakenforum.co.uk/index.php/topic,10433.msg126925.html#msg126925

Glad they helped - fortunately with my newly sorted out storage they were easy to find.

"Easier to find"- the bane of my figure collection! Like the way you have proxied in US officer figure. I have done the same and painted the helmet with a lick of Green Stuff to create sandbag cover & help blend.

Your attention to bases also is a lesson in WW1 history.  The Tirailleurs still have a scad of green field about them, whilst the late Brits are on war scarred soil.  Tells it own sad story in a powerful way,

If it is a US officer figure in with the British, its by accident. Iím not aware that Iíve even bought US WWI figures - but a lot of my WWI figures came from wins on forum comps - so who knows what I might have asked for!


Yes, the basing is very deliberate, I do wonder if I have overdone the mud on the late war bases, it makes everything very dark. And whilst there are definitely periods / regions where this basing is right, Iím not sure how universal it was.
