Some of the first figures I painted for this WWI project was a poignant set of castings depicting a Belgian HMG team drawing their weapon and ammunition using dog carts. I've had the deployed version of the team set aside for a few months now and so when the prospect of a game for the guys in Winnipeg came on the horizon I thought it'd be the perfect reason to finally get it done.
These are 28mm castings from Brigade Models. Very clean sculpts if a little anachronistic in the facial bone structure. I decided to have the team deployed behind the body of a horse, something I'm sure that occurred many times in those early weeks of the war, when cover was at a premium and cavalry was used quite extensively, with the horses tragically being run ragged or shot to pieces.
Taking into account the dead horse, gun and other little bits-and-bobs I'm going to give myself 15 points for this set.
