The Results of Collaboration

My chum, The  Beast of Bukhara, sent me these images today of what could be described as a "joint project".
Turkish Lancers (Great War Miniatures with Woodbine heads). I painted the riders and a couple of horses and the Beast painted the remainder, added the pennants and did the basing. Nice work.

After a shock defeat on the tabletop earlier in the Spring, the Beast decided he needed some heavy artillery. Beast has converted the gun and most figures here are Perry Miniatures Sudan Egyptian gunners with Woodbine Turkish heads,  Brigade Games and Copplestone officer figures and the Woodbine Turkish artillery spotter set . The chap in the tropical helmet represents an Austrian "Specialist" (a Perry Sudan head on a Brigade Games figure). Gun painted by the Beast who also did the basing and the Officer in the centre. The gunners and the other two officers are from my brush.

Gun and basing by The Beast. Gunners by self.

Like it! Big thanks to The Beast of Bukhara (a.k.a Adrian Shepherd, member of the League of Extraordinary Kriegspielers) for the photographs and his permission to post them here.

Great to put up a new post. Painting has been interrupted lately... but I can promise you all some Camels very soon.

What a wonderful alliance that has turned out to be! Great work on all, but I love the artillery pieces. Fantastic stuff all round.
