At last ... I have a complete battalion for The Great War!!! It's taken me far longer than I expected but here it is.
Some closer shots, here's Red Company
And here is Blue Company
of these figures have previously appeared on the blog as each group was
painted, so if you're interested in how they were painted, based, etc
then please have a look back through the blog.
Is the army
finished? Hmmm... is any army ever really complete? No. I plan to add
quite a few models to this army in the future. For example, increase all
the platoons to 12 men and have two Lewis Guns in each. I'd also like
to add a Whippet, possibly an 18lb-er. Then there's trench raiders,
snipers, armoured cars, etc. Not forgetting Gripping Beast's lovely
range of WW1 figures that would provide some Kiwis. :o)
think I'll be taking a little rest from painting WW1 figures as I
intend to focus on getting my Saga warbands complete. So get ready for
some dodgy poetry as I venture in to Dark Ages Britain to write my own
