You get a good selection of soldiers using rifles and machine-guns plus one throwing a hand grenade. There is a man firing a heavy machine-gun mounted on a bipod on a crate. This last piece looks farcically hazardous, and is made to look more inexplicable by the nonappearance of one side of the crate. The man loading a mortar, like the others, the figure comes without a base but moulded as one with the weapon. This means the mortar has no support and the whole piece is wobbly. The inclusion of a radio operator is a nice idea. The uniform of the men is very smart, and dates them to the first half of the war. By the later stages the men looked a lot ragtag, and they had a simpler tunic and wore ankle boots instead of the marching boots used here. Clothing is precisely depicted and with substantial detail, which makes the figures very striking.
Weaponry too is well detailed and mostly accurate. However, the mix of weaponry is good, and even includes a man carrying a mine. The personal equipment of each man is fitting for the period, with all men carrying the instantly familiar gas-mask canister, bread bag and water bottle. Some also carry the shelter quarter which doubled as weatherproof clothing, but only a few have the entrenching tool and bayonet combination. At least all of those with rifles should have been provided with this. Each man carries the appropriate ammunition pouches for the weapon he is using. So a good set there are some poor design decisions like the mortar, but this is still a very useful set of figures.
