Not mentioned in my A Cunning Plan (or two...) for 2021! post was the World War One project that a few of us down BIG are planning for 2021 (pandemic permitting). Long time readers of the blog will know this is not my first dabble in WWI with 6mm and 20mm projects started and unfinished. Of course everyone else wants to do 28mm so I picked up a couple of boxes of Wargames Atlantic Germans which have gone AWOL somewhere on Lead Mountain so I had to buy another...
The Wargames Atlantic plastic WWI Germans are lovely and have a host of options and head variants in the box including gas mask heads and fifty individual stick grenades to embellish your figures! Whilst the plastics only cover basic infantry, fortunately the Great War Miniatures metals are compatible so I have ordered some support elements such as HMG, Light Mortar from North Star via BIG.
Painting was very straight forward, undercoated grey, then helmets, webbing, flesh and weapons block painted before being coated with Army Painter Strong Tone dip, before being matt varnished.
Still not having found the two original boxes I bought last year I picked up a fourth(!) box at the weekend to make up a second Assault Company and when the originals turn up I have a plan to turn then into WW2 Chinese! :D
