Freikorps WIP - Dixon Miniatures Size Comparison

I'm currently working on my Prussian Freikorps Le Noble again. The Dixon Miniatures figures I include in what will basicly be a skirmishing party, later to be upgraded to a Bataillon, are worth a look, I think. (Please click on the pictures to enlarge them).

The figures on the picture above are, from left to right:

As can be seen (I hope) on the photos above, the Dixon Miniatures figures for the SYW range are obviously slimmer and a bit shorter than Front Rank or Foundry figures. In my oppinion, they mix well, especially if seen from further away. They definetly add variety to a skirmish force.

The one-page flyer from Dixon Miniatures, shown below, presents only a part of the available figures of their SYW range, the British and French among them.
