    My take on the Over the Top from RDG and Carl Reid. The moment 7 soldiers from the Accrington Pals go over bags. First figure done the Leiutenant in charge, whistle in mouth looking at his watch to signal the attack. The base has barbed wire and chalk shown. Great figures in 75mm resin. Will be a challenge

    Will be following closely Rob as Y company were from my home town and a distant relative went over the top with the Pals that day. Great start.

    I need to add his walking stick, as you wouldn't want to face a German machine gun without that! I have also done my take on the Burberry tartan on the inside of his trench coat, but will post some more photos later.

    You've not wasted any time with this one Rob. Great choice of unit. The officer figure will make a nice single figure. Good luck with this. When I assembled the demo model I found placing the top figure on the base first followed in sequence by the central ones going up the ladder.
    Cheers

    I use the Life colour paints from Tommy's War. They are just the job.

    My family's regiment. Although I was surprised to find a relative served in the Liverpool Pals'.....

    anyway - a top job here made, I watch with interest - you've made this a very interesting bit of work!

    Thanks for the C&C, Lewis gunner nearly done. Apologies for the photos. Exciting project, as it comes together. No2 to the Lewis underway.

    Its great watching this progressing, its almost like a dry run for anyone else who has this excellent set and its lovely to see that painters are personalising the figures to represent soldiers from regiments who have a special place in their families history creating that little memorial piece that will sit nicely among the rest of the collection.
    Only 2 figures on and this is telling the story, when the other 5 go on it will be mind blowing.

    Lewis gunner No2, added. The .303 and Lewis guns are brilliantly rendered by Reedees. I went for a Div flash on helmet.

    I've toned down the water bottle and helmet as they are a tad garish. Figure 4 done and fifth 95%. Will post pictures asap.
