So I've been itching to try to make a Imperial Guard army using heavy Victorian theming.

I loved the idea of the old Praetorians and thought about kit bashing some different 28mm plastics with Cadians to make a new Praetorian Guard.

I really love the look the Kingdom of Britannia for Dystopian Legions, but it says they're 32mm - has anyone seen a 1:1 comparison of these models, are they too big?

I'm basically looking for ideas here - I've found some good stuff one the 28mm zulu war plastics from Wargames Factory

Hrm, not bad.

I like the german style helmets. Not a huge fan of the "British" ones though.

Wish GW would just re-release Praetorians, but I'm probably in the minority there.

You'll be very pleased to hear about Victoria Miniatures' Victorian Guard (http://victoriaminiatures.highwire.com/products/victorian-guard?pagesize=12), which are both awesome and completely compatible with GW bits, should you so desire.

Similarly, Curious Constructs' Colonial Empire range (http://curiousconstructs.theslowcentury.com/ocart/index.php?route=product/category&path=68_69) would work very nicely with GW bits, or in part with the Victoria Miniatures stuff.

Wow these are awesome Apologist!

They're metal, but if they're sized right then the conversion should be pretty easy! They look fantastic, the Victorian Guard.

The others aren't bad but the Victoria Miniatures definitely take the cake. I think I found what I'm looking for, thanks for piping up.

All of those miniatures are very cool!!

GW should be paying attention to miniatures that are this nice, without the overly cartoonish, action toy look...

Here you go. (http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?87519-Warseer-spricht-auch-immer-noch-deutsch&p=6565892&viewfull=1#post6565892) They're too big indeed.
