U.S. Infantry, Battle of the Bulge
Modeling the U.S. Army in WWII

Warriors Scale Models

These GIs are ready for winter in their long woolen melton coats.  One is carrying a 1919 Browning machine gun over his shoulder, and the other carries an M1 Garand with a bandoleer of ammo crossed over his chest.  Both are walking in the 1943 gaiter and boot combinations.

The sculpting, from Brian Stewart, is very nice, and the figures are crisply molded and free from flash.

The only drawback to this is set it does not appear that it was fully thought through.  There is no tripod or bipod for the machine gun, and no ammo boxes.  A pair of figures like this would be better matched if the rifleman was toting a few boxes of ammo strapped to a packboard, and if one of them was carrying the tripod.  If you want to make this a more complete MG team, you'll have to do some work on your own.
