WWI Highlanders

Musketeer Miniatures..I think tthese blokes  are going to do some serious pulp stuff


Rapid Fire 2 US tank battalion NW Europe

and some other attached bits..all Britannia other than the jumbo assault tank, which is Raventhorpe

this is an example of a tank when it is  merely  blocked in , , a nice place to start
Headquarters, a 75mm gun tank and  a 105mm howitzer support

The Jumbo  , this heavyily armoured version was designed to be an assault or a lead  tank ..in R-F 2 terms there  is one per unit , and if used  it replaces on of the 75mm gun tanks..

A tank company two 75mm and one  76mm gun tanks

the second medium company

the light company

general transport and supply and the HQ company jeep

while not part of the tank batallion this  piece looks good..it belongs to the armoured infantry batallion as the gun platoon
