Only two more Memory Monday’s two go before moving on. This model was the last of the WW1 themed items that I did before drawing a line under the project. Next week will see an interim post followed the week after by the full completed timeline that I put together.
28mm WW1 Vignette – 18 Pounder Cannon and Crew
This week saw the end of my WW1 timeline with the completion of this little Vignette/Diorama. I say the end but as I enjoyed the period I may well add to it at some point in the future if the right idea comes along and I can find the appropriate figures. For now though this is it for the clubs June show in Plymouth.
Of all the pieces I have put together this one is probably my least favourite. There are two reasons for this I think. Firstly, the subject. I felt I ought to at least feature an artillery piece and this one from Gripping Beasts caught my eye. The downside is I wanted to do less conventional models and failed to deliver with this one. I guess it’s a bit like going to see The Rolling Stones. They may have plenty of new songs to sing but if they don’t play some of their hits from 50 years ago then you’re going to be a little passed off! Thus we have some artillery.
Secondly, the model isn’t a great piece of work. It’s fine overall and may look OK but in truth I rushed it. I think I just ran out of steam with the project. I have enjoyed it and discovered lots of new things along the way. I have tried to do other things in between but now it really is time to move on to something else and to use a few other colours. The April challenge will now receive my attention!
Images of the completed model appear below. In the next week or so I will try to put together a post of the whole project.
Oh, and in case anyone is wondering the guy third from the left in the first picture is holding a shell!
