10mm American Civil War Miniatures Comparison 2.0

My first order of 10mm American Civil War figures from Blaze Away Miniatures arrived Friday afternoon. I must say the quality of these figures is excellent, and they match up very well to Pendraken. With the arrival of these figures, I decided that it was a very good time to update my 10mm ACW comparison photo. Along With Blaze Away Miniatures, I also added figures from Starfort and the Baggage Train to the comparison photo. I hope this new photo proves to be useful.

The following Manufactures are included in this comparison:
  • Kallistra
  • Blaze Away Miniatures
  • Minifigs (US) AIM (UK)
  • Pendraken
  • GHQ
  • Old Glory
  • Perrin (US) Magister Militum (UK)
  • Starfort
  • The Baggage Train

10mm American Civil War Miniatures Comparison 2.0

Note 1: To my Knowledge the only Manufacture missing from this comparison is Pithead.

Note 2: All Old Glory infantry comes in strips of five. For this comparison I cut one figure from the strip.

Key Words: ACW 10mm, American Civil War 10mm, Wargaming Miniatures, Kallistra, Minifigs, Pendraken, GHQ, Old Glory, Perrin, Magister Militum, Starfort, The Baggage Train, Blaze Away Miniatures


  1. Thanks for the comparisons! I just got some 'Blaze Away' myself...very nice figures!

  2. What is the contact info for AIM (UK)? I can't find them with google or on TMP.

    This is the site that I use:

  4. I might suggest for those figures advancing [vice the marching] that you turn them slightly [a 1/4 turn to the viewers right] so that they are more square to the viewer and show more of the detail of the figure.

    Its hard to make out much on the Perrin & MiniFig example.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll give it a try next time.

  6. I am going to compare different 10mm figure companies with our 3 painting qualities.
    your review was very helpful to me to get some mfgs i was not familiar with. I will get their
    figures too and include in my review.
    If you want to get your 10mm painted, please contact me.
