The Iron Duke range is simply the best ever! But as already mentioned some of the older (smaller) Foundryfigures are so good despite their age it seem a shame not to use them.
For those so inclined is is a small thing to bring the Foundry figures to the same height as the newer Iron Dukes. In most cases it is just a matter of lengthening the upper legs as can be seen in the comparison pictures below. Takes about five minutes to saw through the legs,  insert a metal pin and fill the gap with Magic Sculpt or Green Stuff. Not really useful for entire regiments but for those occasional figures quite do-able.





The two on the right are Foundry, left an Iron Duke one.

Above the knee Keith. The main  height difference in people is usually in the upper thighs. The Scot is actually a bad example as I had to lengthen the kilt a bit with Magic Sculpt as well. But I really wanted that figure.... I'm almost done painting him (next batch) and I promise to show a good?  picture of him.

The other thing I am doing is brushing super glue on to the bayonet area pre priming. Itís like metal viagra!


That's a great tip about the bayonet issue. Thanks.

That's a nice idea and one I will try and emulate for those few Foundry figures that are worth it. Command and specials etc.  Thanks for sharing.
