Barry Minot Figures

I just scored two lots of Barry Minot 30mm tricorne era figures from my friend Robin, "fokibo" on eBay. I have purchased other figures in the past from Robin as well as helped in some figure identification.

The lots consist of 25 infantry figures and 10 casualty figures. With some command figures, the infantry will eventually form a 30 figure battalion, probably with the Barony of Eisenmuhlen, an ally of Carpania.

I'm presuming that since Barry was a sculptor of Spenser Smith figures that these will be more Old Schoolish than more modern figures. Now I'm wondering, besides Spenser Smith figures, what other lines might have compatible command figures - maybe RSMs since they will be easier to get this side of the pond? If anyone has any comments on this, please speak up.



Lot # 1 - nine standing firing and five casualty figures


Lot # 2 - ten reloading (?), nine advancing, and five casualty figures

I've got some of the Barry Minot plastics, which are slightly smaller than the Spencer Smiths. These metals look to be different poses than mine, however, as best I can tell. The plastics are a small even next to RSMs, probably true 25s, but these look as though they may be larger.
