I therefore bought a pack of each so as to find out for myself.
Eureka : This first picture is of 300SYW305P Russian Musketeer Command . I choose the option to have 4 standard bearers instead of just 2 , dropping 2 NCO's
|Pack Contents 8 x 18mm Eureka figures from Fighting 15's|
Blue Moon :My pack had for some reason an extra NCO instead of my 2nd officer which was a little disappointing but you do get 4 standard bearers automatically and Fifers !
|Pack Contents:12 x 15mm Blue Moon from Old Glory UK|
Next is a comparison shot of 4 manufacturers: 3 figures from each and just as an extra item I have tacked onto the end some Irregular Miniatures Prussian command I had in stock. How short is that OG Standard pole !
|L to R: Blue Moon , Old Glory , Eureka , Irregular|
The Final Picture is an approximate height comparison shot .
|L to R : Blue Moon , Old Glory , Eureka .|
Obviously you are now desperate for my opinion, Given that all my armies are made up from Old Glory which of the others would I use ?
Irregular is obviously too small as they are 15mm and don't mix with the bigger 18mm figures , Blue Moon is sold as 15mm but are much nearer 18mm , they are a little skinnier but would be OK'ish and the ones I bought will not go to waste however my choice would be Eureka as their height and thickness are pretty similar to Old Glory . There is something different in the way the figures look but its not easy to explain, I guess its probably as they are a newer range then their sculpting is perhaps a little sharper but that could just be my lack of coffee.
Another plus is that you can buy them in assorted smaller packs qty's of 8 or 24 and which would again save on having to get that extra one of the bigger 50 man OG packs .
