Gun teams

Since I started this blog I've seen some fantastic painting, conversions, dioramas and some truly lovely armies.
It started me thinking, I've been gaming on and off since I was about 10 and I'm not the ripe old age of 33 and I don't ever remember converting or modelling anything. I think its because I was always worried about making a mistake that would ruin a perfectly good miniature and look like a splat on a base.
I have to say I've been truly inspired by some of the blogs out there of which there are too many to name but if you have posted anything about modelling, painting or converting I'd like to say thank you.

I wanted my weapons teams to be different, to look like they were dug in and going no where, I also wanted them to have a bit of character. This idea started because I was a bit lazy and didn't want to paint the gun crews (I actually gave myself more work) but I'm pleased with the results.

So Below is my first proper attempt at something of my own!!


  1. Ya know, I really like 'em--particularly the last one, where the pointing hand really gives you a sense that there are squadrons of men dug-in.

    They look brilliant, either for a first attempt, or a 20th. Keep it up!

  2. Nice work- really good use of the ridiculously large base that HWS come on!

  3. Those look fantastic. Now that you have taken the first step into modding you have to do the 2nd..... Tutorial! Its blogoshere law you know ;) (Plus I would love to find out how you made em)

  4. Ive got another 3 weapons teams to do so when I get time I'll slap up a tutorial if folks want. Thanks for the cracking comments!!

  5. Those are really good! I especially like the last one, what with the guys looking out from underneath. Keep up the great work!

  6. I want some of those! Consider this idea nicked.

    Excellent job mate, really really good.
