The package included three mortar men and the 60mm. The bases I use are from The War Store.
The sculpts were very good and have quite a bit of detail. There was, however, substantial flashing and I had to spend a ton of time shaving these models down. I heard that Warlord Games is switching to all plastics - maybe this one will be re-done.
I like the fact that the troops included are purpose-built. Some of the other crews I have seen are just kind of generic non-riflemen poses.
|I still have some detail to add to the models, but they are looking ok now.|
I also like that these guys are pretty 'early' as far as equipment goes. Leggings, wools, '41 jackets - this makes the models appropriate to just about any standard US force.
One quibble I have is that there is no liner chinstrap across the front of the helmets. This basically keeps the liner and the helmet together - if absent, the helmet does not stay attached.

Conclusion: 4 of 5 Rounds on Target. I like these models. The sculpts are good, the poses are nice. Only a few minor quibbles.
|81mm and 60mm mortars my unit owns. BIG difference.|
