It is still all about guns and gunners....

Here are twelve figures that have been converted or added to to create some Royal Garrison Artillery gunners for the bigger guns that have been on the workbench recently. These figures come from the Perry WW2 range, the Perry Mafeking range and a couple come from Woodbine Designs. In fact, one of these figures is the legendary "Woody", a special figure produced by Woodbine when their WW1 range was first released. It seemed a shame to cut his head off and replace it with one wearing a Wolseley helmet, but needs must.... All are destined for the Middle Eastern theatres.

 A couple of close ups of "Woody" (right) and his mate as they fettle the fuses on 8 inch shells.

I also indulged by desire to make guns by scratching this 60pdr.
