Artillery through the ages

Have been busy with work, holidays and other stuff so slow but gradual progress. When in York I had visited one of the few remaining model shops where I had picked up a model for Operation Sealion, l have also been working on my ACW Rebels ..........
German Kfz 69 artillery transport vehicle and a Pak 36 antitank gun, both are 1:48 scale so slightly large but not so much that you would notice, the gun crew were a gift and an odd Warlord figure I had left over. I do have some sitting down crew to finish off but I want to make them removable
Second group of artillery completed were these Rebel guns ready to roar
Finally a shot as I put the guns into the rebel box I realised it was now full a nice feeling onto the next box 😬

    1. Yep currently all my ACW are perry, not everybody's choice but they are very flexible, have an excellent wide range and cost effective.

    2. Hey Matt I don't think there's anything wrong with Perry plastic ACW figures they make up 95% of my ACW collection...
      Re: the artillery do you use the extra barrels from the Perry sets for anything I'd be happy to buy them from you they make great secondary weapons on my landships 😊...
