British 17lb A/T guns
I spent some time today finishing off the big brothers to my infantry anti tank platoon. These 17 pounder anti tank guns are capable of taking out almost any German tank and alongside my infantry 6 pounders should hold off even the most determined armored attack.
I took a range of pics of these guys, but the light is failing and the rest of the shots were pretty washed out.
These guns all have drilled out barrels and muzzle breaks. I took a lot of time making sure gun barrels were all horizontal. These guns were high velocity anti tank guns and I see a lot of peoples models online with angled barrels, almost as if they were some form of artillery.
The guns are not secured to the base yet - this is currently for ease of transport, but if I magnetize the bases this will change.
I also have some ammo crates to add to the bases, and hopefully some brass shell casings once I get a chance to find some brass rod.
