Royalist Reccon section WIP : VBCW
After a busy weekend terrain building I thought I would try something different. I picked up the two variations of the 1st Corps motorcycle sidecars at the last show I went to. These are going to form part of a large mobile Royalist army invading the NE for our next VBCW battle. They might also find their way into a Sealion battle.
These are really nice models and look the part but.........I have to say they are possibly the hardest figures I have ever had to put together. My usually reserved British approach forbids me from complaining and whilst the individual components are lovely they simple haven't been built to fit together. Although you can't see them these are only working by the addition of 4 or 5 extra pins which had to be added and as for the machine gun they have simply included a version from a different set so you have to cut it down significantly to get it to work. So I guess the lesson is really nice models, will look great when finished, but a big challenge putting them together. Next time I bump into 1st Corps at a show I'll be offering some constructive feedback 😀
