This set provides a "Platoon in a box", the instruction leaflet even shows the platoon organisation of the period that this box can achieve:
Three 10 man sections with one Bren gun and one Thompson SMG each,
One 2" light mortar team
One Boys anti-tank rifle team
And a command section with lieutenant, radio operator and platoon sergeant
There is even one spare man to add where you like.
Infantry sprue (Front)
The Afrika Korps box (hopefully out later this year) will have a variety of hats, but in the British case the separate heads mainly allow better moulding techniques.
Infantry sprue (Back)
There are also 2 SMGs and lots of rifles on each sprue, plus a bucket load of picks, shovels and bayonets to add to the models.
The bases were a bit of an odd choice for the Perry brothers.
The weapon team bases annoy me even more.
I even Picked up a Tamiya Matilda to go with the army, though looking at warlords rules for it I'm rather sceptical as to it's utility.
But at least the scale doesn't seem too far off.
I will do a proper review with scale comparisons once I have finished painting them.
