Having ordered and received figures from Dermot at CGM in Barcelona in the past, I knew both service and sculpts would be first rate. In fact, Dermot went way above the call of duty in an attempt to connect me with an order while I was traveling in Spain in 2011. That is another story!
On the CGM website, photos of the unpainted lead are encouraging. Two styles are offered in either a selection of march attack or advancing poses. Multiple poses within each classification.

Once the order from CGM arrived with a seven day delivery from Spain to Washington State, USA, I examined the figures. Very nice! Including shipping charge, cost per figure for a small order of 24 figures worked out to USD$0.61 each. Very competitive!
Since my 1799 project is primarily composed of AB Miniatures with plans for adding Eureka's Napoleonic Saxons as Piedmontese (and perhaps as French too), I laid out these three manufacturers' Napoleonics for a quick Comparison.
As seen in the above photo, CGM figures match very well with AB and Eureka. The Eureka Saxon fusilier looks smaller than either of the AB or CGM fusiliers but that is a bit misleading. The Eureka grenadier (second from right) looks fine alongside the AB figure. Other Eureka fusilier poses match much more closely. CGM, having good sculpts at an economical cost, can expect more orders from the Western USA.
To see how these figures can be rendered in competent hands, see the photo below from CGM's website (http://www.campaign-game-miniatures.com/news).
