I decided to order some of the new plastic Warlord Games Russian Grenadiers to compare them with the Front Rank. You get 28 grenadiers + 4 command figures, which means out of each box I'll get 2 battalions but will need to add a 2nd (Front Rank) command stand- not a problem. The figures look well proportioned and detailed so should paint up well. I like the fact that you only need to add a suitable head and the backpack to the figures so they won't be too fiddly to put together. As its raining today (typical for the last day of my holidays) I will get a stand or two painted up. They also include a set of flags which will be a welcome addition.
Some Comparisons: The WG are slightly slimmer and taller than the Front rank but the two ranges should still go well together on the table top.
My only disappointment with the Army Painter Meadow Flowers is the fact that each pack is so small, I used 2/3 of a pack on 5 battalions of infantry and one of cavalry (and am using them sparingly).
Alas as its raining today the photos aren't that great but hopefully you get the idea- just enough colour to make the bases interesting (I'm not sure if I'll continue using the Silfor grasses in future- but they are better value for money given the amount of Meadow grasses in the Army Painter packs).
The photos are of some of my recently rebased Front Rank Russian Grenadiers.
