Not a huge amount to say about these. It is perhaps more interesting to talk about their transport.
I have also painted the gun teams moving. Being Mountain Guns they were able to break the guns down to be carried by horses, mules or even men if the situation dictated. Luckily for Me Pendraken also do some pack horses carrying the guns. So it would be rude not to have them as well. We will just have to assume that there are another two guys on horses one to make the third crew member and one to look after the horses who are off of the base at the time.
Needless to say these were painted for Curt's Analogue Challenge and I was particularly pleased that this is a figure range he had not seen before as I know he does wargame the Spanish Civil War.
So with these light guns I have also 2 French 155mm field guns. I have given these regular army crew as being Bigger I would imagine larger political factions would insist on having these. It is still quite possible that they could be on Nationalist or Republican sides as the uniforms don't really give a true indication of loyalty. As with all the figures I could paint Armbands on them, but this keeps it more versatile. I have Two trucks to tow these guns about. And I probably should apologise for the backgrounds being skewiff but I am not going to. Just take the colours from the backgrounds to indicate why I have selected those camouflage patterns.
I promise to put something that has not been on the challenge next time. As I am just basing up some dead markers for this game.
I have two games this weekend, Club on Sunday and Posties Rejects tomorrow. So expect my next post on Monday. So until then take care and have fun. All the best Clint
