WWI opposition

As we saw previously, our local group is looking at playing some WWI games, being as it is the 100 year anniversary and all. I volunteered to look into and paint up various manufacturer’s figures as test pieces, and to see if they would go with our current forces. Some of the previous stuff can be seen here and here. And here is some more test pieces

Big and little trench mortars. At least I did not have to put these ones together, so, therefore, they look ok

Blue Moon this time, late war british.

Large (in all senses) trench mortars. I excerted myself and put some brigade patches on these guys

Four large trench mortars and two small. Once more the large ones are too big to fit on the designated 1″ x 1″ bases, and have been paced on those for artillery pieces. Pretty sure this will be unimportant in the grand scheme of things. I do like these figures, even though they are large. I find I am able to paint them well, and that they “come up” nicely without a terrible amount of effort in cleaning and painting. The issue with them would be merely one of size, I suppose. One would be more or less stuck using their product; having said that their range is pretty deep and I am unsure that it is a terrible constraint.

And the little ones. no idea why the color tone in this photo turned different to the others. I shall have to look at the settings not he device.

I know some of the other guys in the the group are leaning toward the smaller scale figures; those are next up for experimental painting. I have primed some, and am feeling like I will be popping out for my portable electron microscope shortly. Oh well, we can but see.
