These are actually figures I modeled, moulded, and cast myself. They’re a little wonky. Like, even wonkier than my more recent ones… but no one notices these things in the heat of battle, so…
I’ve been pondering another crack at Contemptible Little Armies – hence the naval brigade. Though, honestly, they probably won’t be seeing action in the Great War – they’ll more likely be defending English naval bases in some (Very British) civil war action!
I’ve also been dusting off my Vimy figures... and… er… re-basing them!? Once that’s finished I’ll dig out the actual terrain boards and see what sort of sprucing up they’ll need. Only six more years until the 100th anniversary of the battle – for which I had originally planned to do the whole corps attack – So by 2013 I should have another division finished (probably the 3rd Division - being next in line from the 4th, which I have already done), by 2015 another (the second?), and for 2017 the last (the first)… Of course it’s not just the Canadians I have to do but the germans opposing then and the terrain boards – of course I started with the easiest – the fourth division – which had the shortest distance to go (thus the smallest terrain boards, and also only two brigades attacking (the third being held in reserve for the assault on the pimple, planned for the following day….). I've also been adding a couple figures to each battalion to make them 15 (previously they had been 13 figures per battalion).
