I`ll probably make this the last entry for this task :D

Some early C20th bits

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

Greatness is not in where we stand, but in what direction we are moving. We must sail sometimes in the wind, and sometimes against it, but sail we must, and not drift nor lie at anchor.

no worries, i`m sure you`ll do a better modelling job than I :lol:

I was thinking of the numerous periods we do - French colonial Africa/Rif War/Mexican Revolution/SCW and French WW2 (up to Tunisia) all these use horse drawn guns, so this can have mulitple uses on our tabletops :D
