Plastic Soldier review found a number of faults in the uniform, but they are not really noticeable
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.

Great work, "Fire-at-Will". They look great. Like your idea of two bases for serving crew.
I usually have two figures on gun bases and extras on individual bases at rear. But your bases look great so I may adopt something similar in future!
Lovely photos too.

PS
Fire-at-Will,
By accident, when doing search for colonial items I discovered your blog!! What a gem of a place for plastic enthusiasts and others! Some great battle reports and links to same, as well as inspiring figure photos.
And to to think I lived my first 19 years on Merseyside then another 26 years later, and never found my way to Deeside wargamers!
I did get to a few Xmas / winter ancients events run by the wargamers at Broughton from the Airbus factory. And went to many a military history lecture in Chester.
What a small world but one where our hobby is often in smaller pockets!

Those have come out very nicely Will, as you say once we apply paint slight differences in uniform details just fade away :D

Thanks for posting :D
