Espana And Great War Additions

A few bits that I have squeezed into my workload recently.
For the Great War, a 77mm field gun and crew From Great War Miniatures, I have also done the early war version but forgot to photograph it.
Whilst at the Derby Worlds last weekend I got some more pieces from Coriatani to fill up no-man's land, a bargain at £7.50 total, I have added some barbed wire and a corrugated iron sheet to make the multiple crater piece a little different to the same piece I already have .

I also got one of the new trench pieces from John at Ironclad Miniatures, a shell damaged section, I really like this one and I am looking forward to the other pieces he has in the pipeline.
For the Spanish Civil War I have painted some miliciano's and miliciana's, I also picked up from Empress Miniatures the recent Republican support weapons pack so my SCW lead pile has not diminished.
For an excellent report and pics of this weeks Indian Mutiny game pop over to GHQ (clicky)

That's all from OHQ for the time being, back in a couple of weeks or so, take care.

  1. Love the gun.

    I just put together a Great War Miniatures German MG team - it was one of the nicest MG team model I ever put together.

    How was the 77 to put together?

    1. Thanks Tim, I was dreading having to assemble two of them, but they went to together a treat, no problem.

    1. Thanks Matt. I got my first tranche with EBay proceeds and the next when John had a 20% off sale, I now just add the new bits he makes.

    1. Thank you. I left the wheels and trail green grey, I thought that doing them in camo was a bit OTT, and it would show off the shield and barrel a bit better.
