Since I am using three manufacturers for my Punic War project, I thought I would do a quick comparison that might prove useful to others looking to go down this same road with their own projects. To me, there are four important factors when comparing models:
- Height: How tall is the figure, especially compared to other figures?
- Weight: Is the figure chunky, bulky or thin?
- Proportions: Is the sizing of things like feet, head, arms, and hands well balanced and natural?
- Detail: Is the figure well detailed not only in equipment but also in the body?
The clickable image below is a photo comparison of Aventine, Gripping Beast and Relic miniatures. I have also charted the four criteria listed above for each manufacturer based on my judgement and experience.
