    After finding pics of Brit WW1 issue gas masks on the internet, I decided to do a little modification. A little scraping, filing, drilling, some lead sheet, bit of sprue, wire and putty, and ended up like this.

    That is quite superb. Interesting that the club in his right hand is very similar to the mace I did for my XIIth century knight. It just shows that when fighting gets up close and personal, the weapons available often revert to the very basic.

    Looks outstanding Joe, like subtle weathering & nice touch with number on gas mask.
    Look forward to seeing further shots on this one.

    Socks on legs ......
