15mm Wurttemberg / Bavarian Lot:  this includes 80 early Wurttemberg infantry, 8 Wurttemberg Cavalry, and 2 Wurttemberg batteries (1 gun and 3 crew each).... also included are what I think are some Bavarians... 8 Cavalry, and 2 batteries (1 gun and 3 crew each.... the painting on this is not great, but it is ok for table top gaming...

25mm/28mm Battle Honors Vietnam Lot:

There are 42 US figures.... they include...
1x M40 sniper
1x M21 sniper
1 Corpsman
2x M60s
some officers and radio operators
M79s, M72s, and lots of M16s
(note, all the soft caps are USMC caps... technically all the figures in body armor are the Battle Honors USMC figures, the ones not in body armor are the US Army figures, I have used them either / or... but thought I would mention that)

There are 40 NVA figures plus 2 heavy weapons... they include...
3x RPG-7s
3x RPDs
a 3 man team with an 82mm mortar
a 3 man team with a DsHK HMG
several command figures (including banner, radio operators, officers)
lots of AK-47s

Also, there are 8 US casualty figures (bases painted red for casualty or morale), 8 VC casualty figures (note:  not NVA, these are VC, but I use them with the NVA), and 6 rice bag piles (usually used as victory locations, sometimes just as scenery)

The Corgi M48 is 1:50 scale and works well with these figures.

Total of 82 figures, 2 heavy weapons, 16 casualties, 6 rice markers, and 1 tank. 

There are some deliberate uniform variations, and of course there are some skin tone differences among the Americans, all based on Gale Force 9 magnetic bases (except the tank).  Enough stuff for a platoon of NVA, and a platoon of US Army, with some extras left over.  And it all looks good.

25mm Old Glory FIW Highlanders, 17 figures, includes many command...
