Early WW1 British Infantry
Ready to go over the top (or possibly over the hedge). As these are all 1914 British Infantry in Service caps, their tussling with the Pickelhaubed Boche primarily took place above ground at this juncture. Trench warfare as we commonly know it in that era began slightly later in the year so much of the fighting was done across fields, canals and through towns and villages. With these new figures I'm hoping to capture something of that and what Lyn MacDonald called "The Year of Hope", and perhaps focus on some games involving Mons, Le Cateau, the Marne etc.
All models are in 20mm scale from Tumbling Dice UK (www.tumblingdiceuk.com). They do some awesome army packs, with a great range of WW1 from early to late war.
