Things that make you go BOOM

After seeing my socialists get blown to pieces during the Battle of Little Hereford, I made it one of my goals this year to acquire some artillery.

Luckily I spotted this second-hand Great War Miniatures 16pdr set for sale on the Lead Adventure Forum (alongside the mortar I painted up for my BUF).

The crew are painted up as part of the Herefordshire TA, meaning I can use them for most factions (e.g. royalists, royalist support for the fascists, regulars/TA fighting for the AL or renegades gone over to the socialists etc.)

The eagle-eyed among you may have noticed that the crew are based separately – a cost-cutting measure which means (in theory) that I can now buy other crew but use the same gun. We’ll see how this works when they see action on the tabletop!

Quick – fingers in ears…


(Oh, and apologies for the poor camera phone photos - my camera is still bust...)


  1. Now that should even up the sides a little - great job Sir.

    1. Here's hoping! Cheers mate.

  2. Nice artillery piece there JP

  3. Very nice, nothing like a little artillery support to even the odds.
