I received some figures from Claymore Castings yesterday. Here's how they look beside some Crann Tara and Front Rank.
From left to right: Crann Tara, Crann Tara, Claymore Castings, Front Rank.
You can see that Crann Tara are a bit slender compared to the others and that Claymore Castings are quite stocky compared to Crann Tara. Front Rank are a bit in between, at least on these samples.
I would have no difficult using these ranges in the same army but probably best in their own units. They all paint up nicely.
Crann Tara don't do Prussians at the moment, Claymore Castings only do Prussians at the moment and Front Rank do everyone.
Thanks for the comparison, nice looking figure from Claymore but a little on the large for my tastes.
You can easily get away mixing these in your army, Jim.ReplyDelete
Yes, I could but I normally don't.Delete
Would this be "young" David Robert Douglas by any chance?ReplyDelete
It might be, who are you?Delete
The even younger Scott DuncanDelete
That's OK then, it is him indeed.Delete
Interesting to se the figures together. I agree re mixing.ReplyDelete
I had a few Front Rank left over from a commission so I had hoped to add to them with figures from Claymore. Alas they are not matching closely enough for me so I'll just have to buy a few of both. The Crann Tara figures were another commission that you will know about.
Ah, the curse of incompatible figures in the same scale! I hope you can make an army that is pleasing to your eye!ReplyDelete
Much of my work these days are commissions so they end up in different armies anyway. My own stuff is usually from the same company.Delete
