VBCW Red Militia gun crews
I think I've found a solution to the lack of a gun crew problem for my VBCW Red Workers Militia. The Westwind French Resistance figures in the Berlin of Bust range include a couple of kneeling chaps, who are obviously trying to blow something up but who could be used as gun crew for my Copplestone Putilov field gun. There are some standing figures with pistols which might also be convertable into gun crew.
I've ordered a pack and will try them out when they arrive. I have some of the Westwind WW2 British commandos and German sentry figures that I bought years ago so I know the French Resistance figures will fit well with the Musketeer, Bolt Action and Empress stuff I already have.
I've also decided to use the Musketeer armoured lorry that I bought at Salute a couple of years ago for my Reds. It was going to equip a Dinosaur Hunter expedition for the Back of Beyond but that didn't get off the ground, so it might as well get redeployed with the workers as a tow for the field gun.
