|Wargames Factory - Fresh from the store|
The box set contains
- 84 figures
- 2 mortars (each in two pieces)
- 16 "medium" bases for squads
- 8 "small" bases for command or special teams
Retail price that I've seen is a consistent $19.99
Each of the figures is a single piece - no gluing arms or heads to torsos...
Inside the box are four sprue (two identical sets of figures and two identical sets of bases)

I am very impressed with the quality of the scupts and the manufacturing. The figures have excellent detail: ridges on the gas mask canister, webbing wrapped around blanket rolls, ammo pouches along the belts, and very nicely sculpted folds in the uniform fabric. There appears to be little to no flash and undetectable parting lines.
The bases are just slightly larger than the Battlefront versions. I estimate about 1/16" longer and wider, and the corners are square instead of rounded.
By my count, it appears that there are 21 unique sculpts. Per sprue: some sculpts are a single figure, for example a kneeling infantry with a Panzerschreck, and range to a maximum of 6 figures of the same sculpt (standing infantry with scoped rifle).
The Wargame Factory figures appear to be true 1/100th scale, and because they are made of hard plastic, the proportions of the figures are more true to life than figures made from metal. I believe one could easily mix a platoon of Wargame Factory figures with platoons of Battlefront or Old Glory/Command Decision figures on the table. However, I don't think one could effectively mix the figures within a platoon or on the same base. The difference would be noticeable that close together.
Below is a size comparison. I tried to find figures as close to the same pose as possible to compare.

Wargames Factory got it right; these figures are excellent - high quality manufacturing combined with very good sculpts. And, at $19.99, these figures may be the absolute best value on the shelves at the moment.
