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

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
