Even more French

Post by Richard B. »

Gun crews all photographed with the same Hat Industrie `75
Senegalese crew 1

Close-ups of the minor conversions, the guy with the helmet has been given a larger caliber shell, the guy in the Chechia fez was the No2 of the VB launcher team, I cut down his rifle and shaped it creating a shell

Senegalese crew 2

Again close-ups of the minor conversions - again the gunner got a new shell, the second guy was the VB gunner, I cut don his rifle and shaped/painted it into a shell

Mixed crew

Conversions - kneeling gunner with new shell, the standing figure is a Raventhorpe British gunner with an EWM Adrian helmet head

Free French crew

another gunner with new shell plus two Raventhope British gunners

And finally a command element for my Senegalese infantry

Raventhorpe telephone op (with Elheim head) + Raventhorpe German engineer officer converted to a French one :D

So that is 69 infantry, a field gun, a French water tower and a gun truck all since February 4th :D

Keep up the output Richard
What's the point of doing one period, when you can do them all.......... In life most people specialise so gradually they know more and more about less and less so eventually they know everything about nothing. I work on a broad front so eventually I'll know nothing about everything.

As others have noted, its inspirational to see your and others output, and often educational, as I learn about the French Colonial army from your posts for example.
Not to worry how many places you post. If some are lucky to see your posts repeated on other sites then they can skip posts. This is the beauty of the internet, you can choose what and where or when to read or comment.
I agree with your thinking that all posts help maintain a Sotcw community and one option for those with a shared interest.
Keep posting!
Its good to view and learn. Its good to inspire others.
