As usual with MiniArt sets their sculpting is exceptional with crisp detail and extras to add some detail to their vicinity if you use them in a diorama.  The Bren is actually two Bren Guns and both have an optional bipod, while the Sten Guns have separate magazines and cocking handles.  The Thompson “Tommy” Guns have separate mags, and there are an undocumented three Grease Guns with separate stocks on the same sprue, which is nice.  The painting guide on the rear of the box includes part numbers too, that relate to colour swatches, Vallejo, Mr.Color, AK Real Color, Mission Models, AMMO, Tamiya and colour names in a chart below.

Looks a pretty comprehensive set, although I'm surprised that they have included a P.1903 bayonet as well as the No. 4's.  They did the same with the British Infantry Weapons and Equipment set.
