Håkan:

Thanks for taking the time to make a comparative photograph of the various figures. The Knuckleduster's look "good enough" to my eyes. Perhaps with some judicious filing on certain aspects, they could be improved further. ("Improved" for photographs, mainly. I suspect under typical viewing circumstances they will fine and dandy as is.) I don't know if any can be used in my 1880s Ozark setting... but I don't have much to choose from, so I suspect there will be some Knuckleduster folk in my hills.

In my opinion, it's obvious that the best of the lot (in fidelity and "crisp" detail) in your photo is the Preiser figure.

All fer now!

Andre

I just got my order of these figures in today. I think they are quite fantastic in detail and crispness. I am pretty sure they are from 3D printed Masters which really helps in how the details stand out. Finally some one making figures of the same quality as the fantasy figure market (which I think are these guys main market).

The figures are posed a bit on the "old west Hollywood movie" side, which is what I really like about them. They look like they just came out of "Deadwood" or "Hell on Wheels". There is a lot of character molded in to these figures vs the Stadden figure. Those are excellent too, but a little flat in character.

The Knuckleduster figures are a treasure for me in some upcoming dioramas in the works for the period. Thanks to Dave for posting them here!!!

Also excellent service. When I ordered, they were shipped the same day.

I hope these guys continue to do more.

Now if I can only find the same quality and character in some 1920's Gangsters!!!
