Do I see the first 10mm pigeons in the hobby? Put me on the list for a couple of packs to collect from FIASCO in October (maybe I'll have painted all their minions I bought at the Triples by then!!

And also other nations such as Austria and Russia?
The 13 pounder QF gun was almost identical to the 18 pounder QF - only the barrel and bore were very slightly smaller, so the same model can be used for both because in 12mm scale it would be virtually impossible to tell the difference. Apparently many the 13 pounders were converted to 18s once the trench lines were established and the heavier shell became more effective with its greater High Explosive effect.
May I suggest Belgian troops in greatcoats and dragon hat, french colonial troops (jacket and famous cylindrical fez) who participate a lot in the opening operations, and bicycle troops.
So many things to do!
Thanks for all!
. Good call. I have compared pics of both and a very small reduction of the recoil system will make perfect QF guns. Order with you for collection at Partizan. DavidPaul K wrote:
