Heavy Artillery Battery

This is a boxed set with parts to make four four 105/155mm C mle 1917 S guns with crew, Observer Rifle team, a Staff team and a Command Rifle team.

I decided that I would make two of the guns as 105mm L mle 1913 S guns.

I glued the crew and other sections to wooden sticks to make them easier to paint.

French Heavy Artillery Battery Crew

There are five crew for each gun.

Here is the Staff team.

Here is the Here is the Command Rifle team.

You also get a couple of prone infantry to use as the Observer Rifle team. These I based directly on the FoW plastic base.

Here are the two 105mm L mle 1913 S guns, I am using road wheels rather than spoked on these.

Here are the two 155mm mle 1917 Howitzers.

The completed 105mm L mle 1913 S gun.

I was going to make the 155mm mle 1917 Howitzers with the provided spoked wheels, however after thinking and reflecting about it, I decided that I would make up all four as 105mm L mle 1913 S guns.

The next stage was a white undercoat for the figures and the gun crews.

I also gave the guns a white undercoat.

I also sprayed the underneath of the guns with a Humbrol Dark Brown spray to add shadow.
