Big Gun and Pigeon Bombs : VBCW

we used these in our last VBCW and I wanted to share a better picture. The Gun is a 60 pounder 5" Heavy from HLBS with their crew.
 For interest the shed is a Hobby store cardboard box covered in card. Dead easy and effective, they come in threes and I have the other two to paint this weekend.
And the pigeon bombers' (miners) actually WW1 French communication team (scarab minatures) with minimum conversion using green stuff  to give then trousers rather WW1 gaiters. The pigeon coup is straight from eBay with the wire mess added. The pigeons ordered from China didn't arrive in time but when they do I will post them too 😀

  3. Best make sure there's none of that H5N1 Asian Avian Flu on them, when you get those pigeons. Otherwise the RSPCA will be joining Martin's forces, and shouting "Catch that pigeon!"
