As I have had so many emails with requests for figures to add to the order, could everybody that wants to come in on this order please send me the following by pm:

1. Name - address - email
2. What you want - numbers of units and totals. Inc new hmg units....

I will then total everything up and see where we are with Gorgon...

mules for Narvik? there You are





and while we are at it, may I suggest one or two sets of heads are cast up? simply from the miniatures already available? I guess it would happen quicker before any new legionaires with helmets are sculpted, and I wouldn't mind some beret heads with goggles for Bir Hakeim....

oh, how wonderful!
I've got mine too, but they will have to wait until probably next year, and they offer a wonderful tie-in with the Hobbyboss landing craft and the sailors that will be part of the next project!

So, THX Colonel Bagshot, Mason and Gorgon miniatures!

paco, have you :
modified a rifle figure in VB ?
received lmg minis ?
any idea for a 60mm mortar?
any idea for artillery ?
Dans les situations critiques, quand on parle avec un calibre bien en pogne, personne ne conteste plus. Y'a des statistiques l-dessus.

paco, have you :
modified a rifle figure in VB ?               not yet
received lmg minis ?                          not order  yet
any idea for a 60mm mortar?               yes, as i don't know if Gorgon will realise mortar, hotchkis, 75mm gun, 25 mm AC gun etc ....( i hope they will !!!!)

 i will use warlords or crusader ones as their are photos of those type of troops in the comon uniform , if Gorgon expend the range to heavy weapons i will paint it and keep the other for comon french 1940 units!

chasseurs ardennais wore a "german look" brotbeutel, and canteen , on the wrong side,  and have pockets on chest (only french officers had pockets on chest) and wrong gaiters .

the first line troops were equiped with special mountain equipements but second line (mortars, heavy weapons, artillery) not , they wore more classical uniforms with helmets.

 While i'm waiting for gorgon french heavy weapons (but helmeted "sheepskin" french before!!!!!!) i will use classical warlord or crusaders minis .

best regards
paco
