|The first "comedy bombard" made from an Old Glory OXTG1 Super-heavy gun- with scratch built carriage and mantlet.|
2 of the guns are identical- being the Hincliffe 25mm Landsknecht Siege gun- in the foremost range. Now frankly nice model though it is it is not what it says on the tin- being on a 15th century "burgundian" type carriage which had largely been superseded by guns with trunnions by the 1520's or so . Nevertheless it makes a cracking 15th century "medium" gun for 40mm,
The crew- like the Bombard are all minor conversions from my 40mm Wars of the Roses range- the ex- Brooks Miniatures range which I now own and have added to. There are now roughly 30 different figures in the range.
|The other completed gun. That Hinchliffe piece looks just right for 40mm|
Glory one and I used to have some 15mm Essex WOTR but then doing things the expected way has never had any appeal for me - at least not since I packed in competitive gaming in the early 80s.
No the point here is to present something a little differently. After all boredom is an ever present threat when all you do is play pillock Rampant or whatever skirmish game is flavour ofthe week this week.
