Big Gun, Little Gunners

Having bought a second hand artillery piece and separately based crew for use with my Hereford TA faction, I decided to look around for some other gunners to use with my other forces, with an eye, as ever on my modest budget.

Time, I decided, to take a long-planned punt on some miniatures from Reiver Castings.
Now while Reiver have a very wide range of VBCW figures, they are very small compared to other manufacturers’ wares – basically being true 25mm. The sculpting and posing can best be described as ‘old school’.

On the plus side, they are cheap as chips - £10 plus p&p for a pack of ten. So two packs – that’s four crews of five men – all for just over twenty quid, isn’t bad value at all.

Anyway, here they are, again based separately for use with my Great War Miniatures 18pdr…

Anglican League (with a sort of Boys Brigade vibe)

Again the photos aren’t brilliant as my camera, while having the sand blown out of it, still isn’t very well.
