From Barks - WW1 German Artillery (12 points)

Just a quickie this week as my time was taken up with CanCon 2016 and the Antipodean Bloggers Meet-Up!




This is a 10.5cm FH 98/09 from Plastic Soldier Company for their Great War range. I've based it on a Battlefront base and used some Vallejo Dark Earth paste for basing, which I much prefer to my previous WW1 entry basing efforts.

P.S. My Halflings from last week were really fun to play with, coming 28th of 36 in the Blood Bowl tournament with a 1:3:4 W:D:L record!
She might be small but she's a beaut Barks. There's loads of detail in the gun and the crew are just marvellous. I like the paste over the Battlefront base - you'd hardly know that's what it was. Great texture too, looks just like horrible Flanders mud! 12 points for your total... Cheers, Millsy.
PS. Great to meet you and congrats on the result with the 'flings. They take a lot to master from what I've seen so that's an outstanding first effort.

  4. Hard to believe this in not 20mm or 28mm. It is splendid.

    Congrats to the halflings but one has to ask which team did they beat?

    1. Thanks, Clint!

      (I beat another Halfling team... but I had a dwarven team over the ropes until they equalised on the last turn!)

  9. Barks you need to spell out clearly that this is a 15mm piece, I only realized it wasn't 28mm until I read the comments. It's that good.

  11. Great artillery piece, and 3 draws with a Halfling team is a win in my book.

    1. I'd love to go the whole hog like Mr Roundwood but can't justify the time and effort yet...

  15. Great job Barks - anyone who can make PSC infantry in that scale look that nice should be pleased...

  17. The muddy base does look very good, and I really enjoy the level of detail you get on those troops!
    Congrats to your halfling team on the win too!
