Comparisons of ECW metal figures

Posted by Ochoin on 21 Oct 2018, 22:16

My ECW project began with piles of plastic Revell & ACTA figures.
Desiring a Covenanter army, I've bought truckloads of the metal Tumbling Dice figures, which match with the plastics well and which I really like.
But I always like variety in my wargaming armies.

What else would work? A pal in the UK sent my these comparison photos of TD & the SHQ range.

Left to right....
1: TD officer
2: SHQ officer
3: SHQ trooper on TD horse
4: Reverse of 3
5: TD drummer
6: SHQ drummer.


Looks like these are very compatible.

I hope this photo might assist others.

That is very good! Is there a site for metal figures like PSR? Anyhow! It is a very good comparison-picture that should help others! Maybe later a little comparison photo plastics and metals?

A 20mm metal version of PSR: now that would be heaven. There were a couple of individuals doing comparison photos on the Net but thanks to Photo*&^$@@bucket, a lot was lost.

There's still stuff like this if you look:

I'll get round to a comparison photo of the Revell & ACTA plastics which fit nicely together & also work with these metals. The few Mars figures I have are also fine in terms of height & heft.

As long as you aren't too fussy about mixing TYW & ECW together & using plastic & metal, there is a fair coverage of figures.

Irregular minis matchs well with acta. I made my swedish pike&shoot with irregular's covenanter and revell. A litre small but it isn't a problem

Not that I don't believe you but size comparisons are reliant on personal opinion.
Any chance of a photo with the Irregular minis & the ACTA figures?

Done. Though you do know there's a PM facility here at Bennos?
