Early C20th additions

Post by Richard B. » Wed May 16, 2018 12:51 pm

I have a plan to run a game based on the Marine landing at Tangier 1904 - dipicted in the film Wind and the Lion :D

I have decided that to make the game interesting the landing itself should be opposed and wanted some ordinance and crews to do so -
All crew are conversted plastics see end photo
Gatling Gun & crew

Gun crew (SHQ `75 just for scale) I have a funky 70mm mountain gun which i`m going to use in the game :D

Great idea Tangiers, 1904!

Lovely gunners and fantastic ammo spill in your lovely broken limber and battered draught horses. Like the addition of reins.

Inspiring stuff! Every once and awhile something gets posted that kickstarts the old mojo!!
Really like the uniforms and the period of the 'Great Game' between the Imperial Powers.....just right for little known expeditions and actions in the back of beyond.......
