Another unit finished, and now I've very nearly finished the Sikh Desert Rats contingent that I'll be taking to the 'Tabletopbattle.com UK Gathering II' in just under 2 weeks' time! Yay!
That said, I wasn't hugely impressed by this mini. Take a glance at these late-night mobile pics...!
(Above) collapsed view, showing the removable loader crewman and my 'storage solution'. The wheels are pinned to the turntable. The pointing guy is the 'spotter', seeing as how Warlord insists upon the 25pdr needing only three crew...
Whilst it was fairly good value - gun, limber and four crew for just £10 +p&p from West Wind Miniatures - the crew models are not much cop. Bad molding lines, blobby hands and faces and slightly weird poses did not really impress me, although the gun itself is pretty decent in its simplicity.
Interestingly, although a bit of research pointed toward the carriage getting narrower as the war progressed, this carriage+gun combined is significantly smaller than the late-war 25pdr mini that Warlord Games makes... although in turn, this is actually quite good, as the Perry Miniatures Sikhs I have are more slightly built than the Warlord Brits.
Overall, it is done; it is finished. At least a lack of detail means a quick paint job, eh?!
