These early WW1 German infantry are mainly Hat Set 8148, which is an excellent set an the one that inspired me to give 1/72nd figures a go. They are mixed with a number of Hat Set 7001 (ex Airfix) figures, which complement the excellent Hat figures quite well. I resorted to Tumbling Dice metals for the MGs an 2 crew, with the third crew member taken from the ex-Airfix set. An alternative might be to convert the MGs from the Ottoman Artillery set. I left the regimental number off the cloth covers, yes, because it was fily, but also because I didn't want to narrow down the date but using either red or green numerals. Other than that, I hope they are fairly accurate.
