Time to give my small Anglican League force some extra oomph, with this improvised mortar.
Making the mortar itself was pretty easy – just a piece of Biro inner tube and a square of plastic for the base. I was then going to make a tripod out of wire, but I couldn’t be sure of the exact dimensions, plus it seemed rather fiddly, so I copped out and instead made a ‘wooden’ crosspiece out of bits of plastic sprue.
The crew comprise of two Great War WW1 figures (the separate guy with binoculars and the guy handing the mortar round, which was originally a pigeon!) and a BlackTree WW2 resistance assassin (the guy standing, with his trilby swapped for a tin helmet).
