Machine gun BoB 20mm

Not a lt actually finished hobby wise. But he oven and fire are now finished so I no longer have the excuse "I am too cold!"

Anyway back to the hobby stuff. Just a single IT Miniatures (LINK)Russian Civil war machine gun.  5 parts in total (3 crew and 2 parts to the gun). It is in the White Russian section on the web site but seriously I can be used be either side as the uniforms hardly changed and the actual gun did not change at all.

I do have another version of the gun but that is the gun in transit and while I shall do it soon it is nothing I have to finish immediately.

The figures are 20mm and are totally suitable for anywhere in the Back of beyond setting with regard to georraphy or almost time scale (unless doing frightfully early!

I hope to do one more post before Crimbo (you have been warned) and again that will be Back of Beyond (assuming I get them finished or near finished tonight.

It is worth mentioning that this is the shortest day of the year so I may not get anything finished. I may just get sozzeled instead!

    1. Thank you Dave the moving gun I think looks nicer. But I am not sure what base to put it on. probably a single base with all the crew.

  3. More "BoB" - what's not to like. Love the different greens used on the uniform and gun; nice contrast, Clint :-)

    1. Thank you Blax. I feel at least 2 different greens were needed as metal and cloth both take dyes/paint differently. Nice of you to notice.

    1. Thank you Bryan. I am not sure what the Russian name would be. There probably is an equivalent to Robert in Russia but I do not know what it would be.

    1. Thank you Joe. As mentioned in another comment I do have a travelling MG as well. And I should get one for the Indian forces. I am sure I will in the future but not this week.
