Look good. Too bad wargames atlantic didn't release these minis with boots. Wrap-around gaiters are typical 1916.
Why the square bases ?

Yes I would have preferred boots amd the cuffs are comically big. I chose square bases because I liked thr look and had plenty of them already.

Good effort - the close-ups appear to make the figures look like they're wearing the lighter grey of 1914, rather than the darker grey of mid-1915 onwards, which is more accurate. 

A bit late for these chaps, but with the others you could always either use some putty to turn the puttees into boots, or simply file the puttees down, which was what I did with my early 1916 effort (plus snipping off the spike on the pickelhaube!) as I wanted them for the initial stages of Verdun.  This would also allow you to stuff some "potato masher" grenade handles into the boots!
No plan survives first contact with the dice.

These are really nice! Could I ask what colour is the uniform grey please? I think these look very effective

Uniforms are Army Painter Uniform Grey with an Army Painter Military Shader wash.
