War Memorial

At the weekend I found myself reading Wargames, Soldiers & Strategy for the first time.  Not a bad read at all.  However what really grabbed my attention was a review of a new War Memorial being produced by the Sgt's Mess.  I've never heard of these guys before but really liked the idea of adding a little more realism to my tabletop.  They are meant for 20mm rather than 28mm but I reckon that this will work just fine for 28mm.  I think that they sculpted it to look like a WW1 soldier so perfect for a Great War Memorial that might be found in any village or town around the country in 1938.

Another great thing about this manufacturer is their public support for Help for Heroes.  Other than that I only actually ordered the piece on Wednesday and yet it arrived here today!  The moulding was very neat and it took the paint pretty well.  I've tried to represent a weathered bronze statue.  Here's a few piccies of the piece before and after painting.

  1. That, Sir, is outstanding. A fitting memorial for any table.
