Thought I'd show you some more pictures of these new figures compared with the first set; bit of trainspotting. The new ones are just slightly taller and chunkier, and not quite as crisp, but I think this has something to do with the current plastic of choice.

The detail and accuracy of weapons and uniforms is still quite good. If I end up mixing these sets for any reason I'll probably trim the base from the new ones, which should make the size of them match just that little bit better.

The officer figure is a good addition, and is sculpted with a holstered sidearm.

There is very little flash on the figures which is good because the plastic currently in favour is rather unforgiving of slips with the blade.

There is a separate bipod for the Lewis Gun which is a nice feature, and the mortar already has a round in the tube, or about to be, which is another nice effort by the sculptor. I think this set is a very reasonable match with the first one overall, and would recommend it to other Great War enthusiasts. I'm sure these figures would also match well with most others from the range too, so there is conversion possibilities as well.
