From KenR : 28mm WW1 British Commanders & Support (50 Points)


A small group of figures for entry number 4.

As I was prepping figures for the challenge I realised that having sorted out the Signallers and Indian Infantry my "WW1 to paint" box was left with a few Figs I had probably just forgotten about, so I thought why not, it's a Challenge, let's empty the box.





The first 4 figures are from The Woodbine Design Company and their 28mm WW1 in the East range, sold together as a pack as ANZAC Command. I will use them as Brigade Commanders for our "If the Lord Spares Us" games, in fact they left the paint table and went straight onto the gaming table  (hence the background on the photos) As we are currently doing The Battle of Ctesiphon.


The final figure was a donation from one of the regular attendees at Yarkshire Gamers Wargaming Emporium, I believe it is a sculpt of a character from "Lawrence of Arabia" and was a free gift at a show, possibly Partisan.



At the very bottom of the box was this lovely Woodbine Design Company Trench Catapult, again 28mm. I had forgotten I had bought this as I already have one painted up but it's a welcome addition to the collection.

So that's 8 28mm Figs for 40 points plus the Catapult.

Back on the paint table we have more SYW 15mm Saxons, my Armour Entry (which I forgot about !) and my 28mm AWI Cavalry which are still suffering from Painters Block. See you soon.



Nice little entry to supplement your previous Indians! The officers are characterful sculpts to keep a keen eye on the men, and I do rather like that trench catapult with the casually-attired crew
50 points for you sir, and you're pretty close to half way to your target - well done!

  4. Very very nice indeed. You've really brought out the detail of the "The Woodbine Design Company" sculpts, and that catapult is a corker.

    1. Thanks Ian, to be fair it did have full details on the bag it came in, my mistake was to throw the bag out before I started painting, oops.

  7. Cool figures and well painted. There is a parched look to them befitting the areas of WW1 in the Med.
