Title: Front Rank Miniatures Question
Post by: The Gray Ghost on October 16, 2012, 06:31:04 PM
Will FR late 17th Century figures fit in with North Star/ Copplestone's original Glory Of the Sun/1672 figures?

Pretty much. I have a mix of both:

Those are Front Rank in the foreground and a mix of FR and Copplestone GOS (now NS 1672) in the background.

The FR figures are a little bit bigger and chunkier than the Copplestone figures (yes, they are huge!) but not so that you'd notice. I am one of those pernickety types who won't mix incompatible figures by size, and I'm happy with these alongside each other. They're not a perfect match, but close enough :)

Hope helpful.

Thanks  :)

There's lots more in my LAF 'Other stuff' gallery. I really should sort out a separate gallery for the late C17th stuff, as I have quite a few of them now...

Not wishing to derail The Gray Ghost's thread too much... (::)) here are a few more if you haven't seen them before... Front Rank and then Copplestone (now North Star)
