I got these to round out my German infantry squads with leaders, AT and LMGs — very happy with them. Some advice if you’re just starting out with infantry units like these:
Infantry can be tricky because of the manufacturing process; a sprue is left on the helmets from casting which snaps off easily, but leaves behind a bit of flash that can be very difficult to remove. This bit of flash resembles a Pickelhaub (the spike on top of German helmets from WW1). You can see this in some of the product photos.
Whatever metal is used to cast these minis is brittle in nature, so I’ve had trouble filing the flash down. I’ve had mixed luck using a fingernail clipper to bite off the flash. At this scale it’s practically unnoticeable, but the unintentional Pickelhaub catches shadows and makes it hard to highlight the helmets without also enhancing the Pickelhaub. A very tiny pair of fingernail clippers, for baby’s nails, has just the right rounded cutting angle to remove most of the flash, but it’s tricky.
