I want to include this quote from Iron Ivan Keith about Battle Honors
It really seems to depend on the range. Their British and DAK (and late war Germans) were sculpted by someone else besides Sean Judd who did much of their other stuff. It seems all of the British and DAK are on the smaller end and could be considered 25mm. That is not the case with their French, Early War Germans, Soviets, etc. sculpted by Judd. Those ranges are all 28mm and do match up in size with most other 28mm. The thing to consider is that few of Sean's sculpts for those ranges are standing upright. Almost all are in a crouched low advancing pose, prone, or kneeling, and they often end up looking shorter when photographed next to other 28mm ranges. Their bulk and detail are similar to 28mm though.

I started doing something like this at http://mainly28s.com. I even developed a patented comparison system, and put up loads of pictures. The biggest challenge I faced was getting enough sample figures to provide the comparison pictures.
