|Still looking a bit shiny from my varnish however the boys are very |
keen to welcome some visitors to the plains!
|Excellent book from Spellmount.|
|Great artwork with the machine gun in action|
"Where the bloody hell did they get that from!" - Fuzzies with machine guns appear.
When this card is drawn a captured Nordenfeld appears with three crew and placed within 24 inches of a random Imperial unit. The rules for Machine gun fire still apply however the Fuzzies crewing the gun are not exactly trained gunners and will always enthusiastically attempt to maximise fire in any turn to 15 rounds. If they then roll 15 or below on a d20 the gun jams. It can only be cleared on a 1 - only one attempt is allowed. Roll to hit and fire effect as per normal shooting and Machine Gun fire rules".
|Very nice Foundry gun - I do particularly like the crouching figure as well.|
|View from the rear - the Essex figures are open handed and work well.|
The figures used in this vignette were a combination of figures that I had in the spares box. The two actual gunners are Essex Fuzzies, the crouching chap with his bucket to cool the barrels is a modified Fuzzy from I think Bicorne with a Minifigs British artillerists bucket. The gun itself is from Foundry and though not the exact replica of that on the dust cover of the book, at least it looks the part for our particular games..
Now to get the Dulcote out and give them a spray - but only a whiff I think.!
