I would rather have a man at sling arms walking along the road than the wounded or dead guy.
I like the man at right shoulder arms marching also, on parade, or guard duty, better than the bayoneting guy.
This is true for all figures.
Personally I like the Caesar Miniatures German Marching figures and would like these for all the major combatants. In the 1920s and 1930s marching toy soldiers and even marching band toy soldiers were very popular. Even today Preiser makes marching bands and they are super expensive, but HO 1/87 scale.
Airfix made two of their first few sets were marching guards and a guards band which are long out of production but fetch large prices for collectors.
