Here we have a Vickers Machine Gun team by Great War Miniatures. It is another lovely model which was great fun to paint.
There was a little more flash than I would have liked, though it was almost a deformed mould effect rather than simple flash-marks. A bit of cutting, drilling and scraping...and of course painting....and it all came right.
The gun team is painted to represent a team from the Machine Gun Corps attached to 5 Royal Berks of 36 Brigade, 12th Division. The MGC were popularly known as the 'Suicide Club'. Often in positions exposed to enemy fire their rate of losses was very high.
Having had a Great Grandfather serve as a Machine Gunner (and be wounded twice) with the MGC during the Great War, I did what I could to make an accurately painted representation of a gun and crew.
More Great War infantry to follow!
