Crusader v Renegade Comparison 2

Here are a couple of pictures of Velites from Renegade and Crusader. Confusingly the top picture shows Renegade on the left and Crusader on the right whilst the bottom is the other way round. The figures are not that different in size or bulk but the real difference is in the head size where the Renegade figures are very exagerated. The Numidian figures I bought were even worse with the head about one quarter of the size of the body. Horrible!

Crusader v Renegade Comparison

Left to Right: Renegade Velite, Crusader Velite, Crusader Legionary, Renegade Legionary.

I originally bought the Renegade figures and painted some velites which I liked. Although the Romans were big it wasn't that that stopped me buying the range it was the truly horrible Carthaginians which had huge heads. I had bought some of the A&A Carthaginians which were also sculpted by Mark Sims so went for his Crusader figures as they matched perfectly. He is now expanding his Carthaginian range so I am very happy with my choice as you have two ranges (A&A and Crusader) to choose from.
