AiP 1/32 Gatling Gun set complete

Well, although this was intended as just a way of getting me back into my FLW hobby my AiP Gatling Gun set has turned out to be my very first complete FLW unit! Huzzah!

It's a wee bit rough around the edges (my Gatling carriage is a bit shoddy), but I'm very pleased with the gun crew. The colour scheme for my artillery regiment was a good choice I think (this is the 1870-1907 Molatero scheme, I was thinking of a subdued uniform scheme for the period just prior to and including The Great War).

Anyway, task completed and I feel like I have my FLW mojo back again. In fact I've already started getting my brushes into my first infantry regiment. But, back to the here and now, these little chaps are a fairly good start on my way to a modest Molatarian army - if I do say so myself!

    1. Many thanks. I actually never intended to include a Gatling gun in my Molatarian army - I had my mind set on an early Maxim. But, as I said, it's been a good project to get me back into FLW and gives me a couple of extra artillerymen (I'd like to make up the AiP Krupp L/24 field gun for these guys).

  2. Shoddy? They look fantastic. Pristine painting and lovely crisp varnish. True toy soldiers.
