These are hands down the finest WWI Miniatures made to date. They are the first time that National Army Troops (The Draftee Divisions 77th, 78th, 79th, 80th, 82nd etc) have ever been portrayed in miniature. Previous Americans have all been Regular/National Guard/USMC armed with the 1903 Springfields. These figures are armed with 1917 rifles, Chauchats and VB Grenade launchers. The 37mm Gun has never been modeled in 28mm for Americans before and is a gem. The figures are exquisite. The 1910 haversacks need to be glued on, but the fit perfectly and give the figures a fuller profile than other cast Doughboys which seem flat compared to these. All around fabulous figures. the research clearly shows.
These models look amazing. They're extremely faithful to the Great War uniforms, the Springfields actually look like Springfields, and each type of model has its own personality. I'm very happy with this purchase and will purchase all subsequent releases for the US Army and will most likely pick up a second army.
