The guns of august

The guns of august, originally uploaded by dimacleod.

Macro setting on nokia 6220 camera. 28mm ww1 late war german figures. I'm still not good at painting, but it is relaxing.

WW1 Storm Troopers? Or just the run of the mill Hun? Don't forget to shoot down the Red Baron. Look well painted to me.

I think the middle one is a stormtrooper, and the others are infantry. It's down to the boots. "Jackboots" are for infantry, but the stormtroopers prefered ankle-boots and puttees.

Easy enough to mix-n-match on the tabletop though.

We're using "Wings of War" for WW1 aerial combat. Some of the chaps have the later supplement. It's a card-based game, but we're using the models. I got my left and right muddled up one time, pulled a loop, and forgot that I'd be pointing starboard, and had to play my next card, and flew off the table. Duh!
