Here are some that have been mixed with existing figures. I cut bases where necessary to get a better height match. The next picture has a couple of minor conversions. The officer is from the WW1 Italian set - with the base removed and a fraction shaved off each foot his height is now much better than the original hulk.Just a slight modification to the loader produced quite an acceptable LMG teamLast one, the full weapons company.

Pictures from a game we played. Flers-Courcelette, the Somme 1916. My friend and I had to combine our New Zealand figures to make up the entire division; some 200 stands plus tanks and artillery.
Most of the tanks had broken down around turn 4 or 5.

First, a couple of Airfix models, and the quite excellent Emhar A7V.
Next, British varieties; machinegun armed only, however. Again, more from Emhar.

1944-45 Volksgrenadier platoons. The officer is a head swap job, the rest are standard.

These are the various figures styles I have to work with. Only a dozen or so of the Caesar French have greatcoats, so I'll be mixing these with with likewise kitted figures in a separate unit. Will no doubt do a few head swaps and remove the bases from some to maintain a uniform height next to others, but this project is still at the concept phase.
Also arrived over the last few days.
The figures on the right are some of the strangest copies/modifications I've ever come across - I got eighty odd figures for a couple of dollars. Still not sure what I'm going to do with them. As you can see, some of them have been sort of resculptured and modified to include fisherman's boots or something of that ilk. They are about 1/76 scale.
