Copplestone WW1 Turks
On a different but related thing, I also added a couple of packs of Copplestone WW1 Turkish infantry from ebay to some existing figures that I bought at a show a couple of years ago in a discount bin. I now have enough to kit out a small but quite powerful expeditionary force to the Back of Beyond. This would consist of a two or three infantry units, a machine gun and a field gun plus a commander.
Think about this tilted in a vertical direction and you'll get the general idea.
I could add a AA gun if I used the spare Maxim from the machine gun pack and mounted it on one leg from the tripod rather than three. I have a few spare Chinese crew from my other Back of Beyond army that could be headswapped to create the AA gunners, which would be an easy way to add some much needed ani-aircraft firepower.
