Size comparison between Blue Moon Pirates and Peter Pig minis

Hi, folks. If you're a newcomer to 15mm scale like me, you're probably wondering how the different manufacturer's ranges stack up against each other by size. I had recently bought some Peter Pig and Minifigs cowboys, along with the new Blue Moon Cowboys, and was really surprised to see the size difference between Blue Moon and some of the other manufacturers. So when I bought some of the new Blue Moon Pirates, I was more more prepared for the size difference. The Blue Moon Pirates are 17-18mm at eye level, whereas my Peter Pig Pirates and Minifigs minis I have are true 15mm. I don't particularly mind the size difference, though, people in real life are different sizes, too. But if you're a stickler for scale, you may not want to mix the old true 15mm figs with the new Blue Moon Pirates.

Here's a couple of pics that show the size difference between Blue Moon Pirates and some Peter Pig minis.

I don't have any pics right now, but I have some 15mm Splintered Light minis Ghouls, Black Hat minis Renaissance Spanish, and a bunch of 15mm Rebel minis, and they scale in pretty well with the Blue Moon Pirates, though all of them are a little smaller than the Blue Moon Pirates. And the Rebel, Black Hat, and Splintered Light minis are noticeabley larger than the Peter Pig true 15mm's.

I hope this has been helpful. I'll try to post more size comparison pics when I get everything together.
