WW1 Flamethrowers.

Some of these guys I painted up a while ago but only recently finished off the last few.
They are from Renegade Miniature set WW1G 112.

I have been busy finishing off a few sets of figures like these recently so more to come in the next week or two.







I see that the blog has finally got to 200 followers after hanging in the 190's for ages. Thank you all very much for this. Thanks for all the comment too. I really do appreciate them.

  2. Are they 28mm? Take a look to the Scarab Austrian range (easily assimilated to German Sturmtroopers). Nice figures and congrats for the 200 adepts too

  8. Nice work and photography as well. These late-war WW1 guys would not look too out of place in early-war WW2 either. Dean

  12. And the best is, that 30th of July 1915, Germans for the first time used the flamethrowers on the battlefield. Nice job Rodger, both figures, and followers!!!!

  14. Congratulations on the 200, a group I'm glad to be a part of. These are nicely painted figures and in the background is your stunning terrain. I remember when you posted these buildings. I'm still in awe of them.

  21. Very interesting, this one slipped my radar - I had always thought the flame thrower was a WWII invention, not a WWI one! Looks good, but I pity the poor Tommy!
