Interwar USMC 75mm Field Gun.

Some heavy support for the USMC figures painted earlier this year. A GWM WW1 French 75mm field gun with a crew of GWM Late War British Artillery crew with Woodbine Designs headswaps. Strictly speaking, by the 1920s American guns had a simple Olive Green paint scheme but the decision was taken to give the gun a bit more "umph"  by basing the paint scheme on a gun in the Lovett Artillery Collection. An image of this gun appears at the bottom of this page and the other images and information can be found here. A second gun and crew are currently on the table.

UPDATE
An image of both comleted guns and crews.

And next? BIG GUNS!

Really nice minis! Sharp camo too!

Can't believe they went to war in those cowboy hats...
