This post went out in March 2018, I can’t believe that was two and half years ago. How time flies! I need to check how far I am away from completing the WW1 Timeline I set out to do back then. I have a few more posts that weren’t WW1 but I think once I hit the end of WW1 project it will be time to put Memory Monday to bed for a while. The aim was to give some older posts an airing for people who weren’t following me back then but there is a point when it is close to being repetitive for those who were. The end is nigh!
28mm WW1 Vignette – Vickers Gun Crew
Not the best of weeks but I managed to complete this outstanding WW1 Vignette and begin work on a new WW2 project, more of which in a separate post to follow.
Throughout my WW1 project I’ve tried to steer away from the slightly more convention images of war in an effort to tell the story in a different way. As commendable as this idea was, in my own mind at least, there is a point at which something’s have to appear. A Vickers Gun Crew being one such example.
Once again I turned to Empress Miniatures. They really do some great figures and these came under the banner of the Mutton Chop range. Composition is basic, there’s only so much you can do and in this instance only so much that I wanted to do. From a timeline perspective it was also a model that I could fit in pretty much anywhere within the sequence.
Another one down, only two more to go. Beginning to lag a little now but I will get there! This one is one of my least favourites and I wasn’t going to post it today but for the fact that I would have failed my self imposed deadline. The groundwork leaves a little to be desired, the photos don’t help, so at some point I will go back and revisit it.
