They are the old Capitol light and heavy infantry figs.  They make great Cartel forces or Capitol Freedom Brigades.

Veez is right.

  A neat thing about the old Cap Infantry figs...  They can be Peace Keepers or Security Cop as well as freedom brigade.  I tend to use GW Catachan as they have little armor and are sorta under equiped like the FB's are..

Thnx for putting up those links Semai!  You beat me to the punch.

They're SLIGHTLY smaller - more like Rezolution size.  But that doesn't bug me since the FB's are less armorerd etc.

They would be great for both.  I added shoulder pads from extra ducal militia figs and used mine as dragoons.

im mostly asking if i could use the free marines i have for free brigadiers (im playing CGF, so no need for marines) if i leave the swords off and convert the sgts. rifles to shotguns, or would that be frowned upon and should i buy some of the viridian marines instead?

Oh.  In that case you are going to hell.

But seriously I don't see a problem with it since there is no official Freedom Brigadier fig.
