From MartinN: 28mm WWI German Flamethrower, WWII British Para Howitzer and MMG (62 points)


From MartinN ('Nick'): 
Once again a mixed submission of Great War and WW2 stuff. First we have a WW1 German Flamethrower team carrying the 'Klief M1916 Flammenwerfer'. The figures are from the superb Great War Miniatures and again were a real joy to paint. 

Second is a '75mm Pack Howitzer' for my Red Devils Paratroopers from Warlord Games. The piece and especially the troopers are of great quality and were a fun to paint.
The spent shells seem to look a bit out of scale on the pics but believe me it's just the angle ;-)

And last but not least we have a 'Lewis medium machine gun' from Warlord Games again. The gun itself was rather nice but the paratroopers unfortunately had some bad mould lines and miscasts.


Beautiful work once again Nick. The flamethrower team, while grim, is very well done but I particularly like the Paras with their denison smocks and the added realism of the expended shell casings beside the howitzer. (It must be heat expansion with the casings that's causing the size distortion, yeah, that's it for sure. :) )

These three weapons teams will give Nick 62 points. Great job!
