Bigger Guns for the Central Powers.
March has been busy away from the painting table and progress on things has been much slower than anticipated. However, here are two scratchbuilt guns. Both are meant to be generic types for the Central Powers. The first is a 150mm Howtizer with gun shield. It should pass as a Krupp or a Skoda. The stipple camouflage scheme helps hide a multitude of sins. The crew is a converted set of Austrian gunners poised to serve in Palestine in support their Ottoman allies. The conversion is a simple headswap onto some late WW1 GWM German gunners and a tropical paint sheme. The heads are Woodbine Wolseley heads with some judicious work with the file to create a more rounded brim. The puggaree on each has been filed away and replaced with a greenstuff band and badge.
