Some HäT testshots


While the last weeks of the Challenge were still in progress, I received some testshots from the United States. These were the eagerly awaited British Peninsular Cavalry (both heavy and light dragoons) and WW1 Belgian Infantry sets. The latter are today's subject as I found some time to get them painted up.

So let's take a look at the figures. First up is the regular line infantry set. All figures are uniformed in the early war (i.e. 1914) uniform. What I specially like is that there are 3 figures in seated or prone positions as to indicate the need to seek cover, something often overlooked in WW1 sets. Here are two pics of the figures:

Next up are the Heavy weapon set figures. These include a prone Light Machine Gun being fired by either Carabineers or Jagers (Light Infantry) I painted them up as Carabineers on bike. There's a dogcart with Carabineer handler and an officer firing his pistol.

The HMG is based on a resin scenic base from the 36th Chamber, a very nice range of trench-themed bases can be obtained from them.

Some close ups of the heavies set:

Hope you like them as much as I did.

Cheers Sander
