Guns for Fun 3 – Turkish WW1 Guns

Filed under: WW1 — Tags: , , , , , , — gisby @ 00:01

I needed another opponent for my WW1 Russians, so I decided to build a Turkish force. I used the Copplestone Castings Back of Beyond Turks, because they are gorgeous figures.

Unfortunately, the range is somewhat limited, having only Command, Infantry, and HMG & crew figures. I still needed Artillery.

My first solution was to take the Back of Beyond Chinese field gun, and replace the heads on the crew. The uniforms aren’t perfectly accurate, but you can’t really see them well, clustered around the gun. I have absolutely no idea what type the gun represents.

For a second piece, I turned to Irregular MiniaturesVery Useful Guns range, and picked up a German 77mm gun and Turkish crew.

I found myself with a spare pair of kneeling Irregular Turks, so I removed their rifles, and paired them with a spare HMG from my parts box. They turned out well, I think.
