Hi Guys

I already have 10mm Pendraken armies for this war but I'm just wondering about minimal 28mm skirmish forces for the war.

Eureka make 28mm Danes but a more limited variety of Austrians. So, size-wise could I use Northstar Austrians as opposition instead?

Cheers

Jules

I seem to think Eurekas figs might be a tad smaller

I have Eureka and Waterloo to Mons which is coming back into production this summer.I also use Perry Scots fusilier BIF for Danishfootguards Battlehonours and northstar ,foundry for Prussians and Austrians minor differences but fit fine on the field of battle. Northstar/Helion is a tad taller  but not enough to matter ,at least in our group.
