Also, there was some pretty distinct variations in uniforms/helmets from war's beginning to end, if I'm not mistaken. Artillery? No. Not unless we were making 15mm (and we're not making 15mm WWI). Mortars and HMG's, yes. Tanks? Probably.
However ('cause there's always a 'however') I was under the impression that other companies were taking on WWI in plastic and frankly, I'd rather concentrate our efforts on our Apocalypse ranges than divert our limited resources.

If we did tanks, I'd have the first tank be the Renault FT char d'assaut Light Tank (with a figure of George S. Patton riding on the back as an option) 'cause I'm an American and, everyone knows, we won the war.
