In the last three or four weeks I've been adding some support and heavy weapons to my VBCW forces. I've already featured the Stokes mortar and crew, together with the Leach catapult, crew and bomb making vignette; now I've finished the 18lb quick fire gun and crew. They all have civilian looking crew figures from Reiver Castings as I wanted them to be interchangeable between the various factions and forces in my games set in and around Wolverhampton and South Staffordshire, as well as popping up in 1940 Operation Zeelowe or Blandings games. The mortar and catapult are from Great War Miniatures, but the provenance of the 18lb gun is a mystery, perhaps Renegade? Its certainly not the guns sold by either GWM or Woodbine Designs.
A reprise of the earlier heavy weapons ~
And all together ~
The Reiver civilians look, I think, surprisingly good, given that I thought them a little on the 'primitive' side as sculpts. I don't mean to be scathing there, rather to say they remind me of figures from an earlier time, when the world and I were younger!
